If the picture is in an hourglass shape this has nothing to do with vertical hold. Besides, on all these sets, the hold and parameters are all uPC controled through a firmware routine that is burned in to an EPROM.

It is obvious that there is a failed component somewhere because of the hour glass shape. The area of failure is most likely in the pin amp section. If the hourglass is from the sides, it would be horizontal pin. If it is top and bottom, the fault is in the vertical pin section.

A common cause is from a capacitor that has failed in the mentioned area. Sometimes it can be an IC or other type of component in the pin amp area, but not as often as failed capacitors.

You can take the set in to service the fault. I don't think you can fix this yourself unless you are trained in TV service and have the experience and setup to troubleshoot for the bad parts, and do this type of service.

Picture is squished in from the sides. Sides are curved inward like a fat hourglass. Vertical setting seems okay. Is there a horizontal adjustment somewhere? or is the issue more complex


Unfortunately from your description this a complex issue and cannot be adjusted out. The cause is a shorted winding in the horizontal section of the yoke, or the high voltage capacitor has decreased in value causing the hourglass effect, depending on the problem will dicktate cost to repair, I suggest an estimate before a decision is made, and if the set is more than five to ten years old consideration should be given in a replacement.

The picture is moving up and down in every 3 sec


Vertical hold needs adjustment. Check for vertical hold preset and adjust. If no preset present in the P C B of the TV, try through service mode adjustment. Service mode adjustment possible only by the authorized service provider.

Vertical hold will adjust the frequency (refresh) which would remedy it if the picture was rolling. I had to open up my TV (not recommended unless you know what you're doing) and adjust a "pot" which will adjust your screen's hourglass problem. I hope this helps.

Half a screen


The picture on your TV screen is driven from the center to the top and bottom of the screen by the vertical drive circuit. The fact that you can see the entire picture means you have a problem called foldover. This is caused by a failure in the vertical drive circuit where the vertical saw signal is altered by a component failure within the vertical drive circuit. You cannot solve this problem but any good repair shop should be able to correct the problem at a reasonable cost.
