The hourglass distortion is usually due to bad solder connections in an area called the pincushion correction circuit, and repairing them usually takes care of that trouble. Whether this caused anything else to go bad and led to the other troubles your set has or they are unrelated is impossible to tell without finding what's failed.

If you had just the pincushion distortion, I'd say you might be able to try repairing the set yourself if you can use a soldering iron on electronic circuitry (or if you know someone who can). But with the other troubles, your only solution is to take the set to a service shop for an estimate by a technician. Troubleshooting often needs special tools and skills as well as the manufacturer's service information, and it's possible to make things worse by trying to do repairs without experience.

Given the low cost of smaller TV sets today, you might find it's more economical to replace this set rather than repairing it. I don't know what shops are charging to do estimates these days. The shop I worked for used to charge $20 (applied to the repair) to do a check and give an estimate, and I got out of the business 10 years ago. Overall, the cost of repairing this may run over $100. Of course, I could be wrong. Maybe start with an estimate and then decide what to do based on the dollars.

Hope this helps a little. Thanks for using Fixya!

The tv has a bad lite engine. Please call the manufacture's customer service and asked them for a concession for this repair. This a $700.00 to $900.00 repair. If you persist 95% of the time they will cover this repair for you. Use the word 'concession' that's there verbiage.Good luck.
