IMO Seriously for $119 it's not worth it.
However, it does sound like a capacitor problem
If you are "Serious" about fixing I'd find a TV repair Forum.
Else I'd go here and get a new one.
2 things that will cause that vertical IC or Yoke! Listen to this one went on service call 2wks ago Customer had a 50 INCH1988 pioneer big screen replaced 3 capacitors resolder poor connections TV is now working like New ?
The problem is sometimes caused by the vertical output integrated circuit (IC) failing, but usually it's bad solder connections. If you or someone you know is comfortable with electronic soldering, a few minutes spent resoldering the IC pins to the circuit board will often solve the problem. Failure of these connections is common because the IC gets quite hot (and it's mounted on a metal heat sink). The heating and cooling cycles cause the solder joints on the circuit board to crack. You can usually see the trouble with light and a magnifying glass; gray grainy joints instead of shiny connections, and often visible ring cracks around the pins.
This is what is known as frame collapse - which means there is no vertical deflection applied to the tube.
Please do not continue to watch the set in this condition as it may burn a horizontal line in the middle of the screen.
The most likely cause is either bad solder connections to or failure of the frame vertical output IC.
Please rate the assistance I have given - I hope it is useful. If you call a serviceman and tell him its frame collapse as this type of repair is not for amateurs - voltages in television receivers can kill.
