Has the image been "zoomed" into? This is usually the result of a image that has been adjusted to fill the screen. This is not the same as adjusting the aspect ratio as that would still show the entire image even if distorted. When the image is cropped or is missing information, a zoom feature is usually the culprit.
If this isn't the problem, you maybe able to adjust the TV's horizontal/vertical placement through the TV's onscreen menu but only if it provides that option. Do you see other channels that appear to fit properly? I have seen certain channels not fit correctly while others do and this is due to the signal, not your TV.
This is a problem with the pincushion and convergence circuits. Are you planning on repairing this yourself? If so, I'll look up the circuit designations and parts. If not, expect a parts cost in the $15 range plus the local labor rate.
There is a pincussion correction circuit in this RCA TV set that does have problems from time to time. Its in the horizontal High voltage sweep circuit and should only be worked on by a trained tech as there is alot of High ZVoltage there. In this set there is no user replaceable parts inside, as everything is soldered into place. It could be in your case a pincussion correction driver transistor or the coupling capacitor or capacitors that need to be replaced. if your not trained in the high voltage circuits , for your safety, please call in a local repair person to assist you in this repair.
