Problem with Sanyo 32

The tv is only about 5 years old and I'm having a problem where the screen looks hourglass shaped where the sides are bowed inward. I was able to get it to hit the back of it and eventually it went away for several months. Recently, it started doing it again. Any idea if it's worth fixing?

Your problem is in the pin cussion ,so change the capacitor around connect to pin cussion area or if you can see a trimer in that area try to adjust or else resolder you tv.

TV comes on but after a while there becomes a hourglass shape on screen. It is drawn in 1/2 inch on the sides. Can this be fixed cheap?


yes. has a pincushion circuit problem. since tv works and then starts to bow, its a bad solder connection. when tv warms up the metal expands and looses connection. when cold, the solder constricts and unit works fine. just solder deflection area. you can probably tap on board and locally find area to solder.

Have you ever had this problem?


Sorry Ginko, but a convergence problem would have the curves down from the top and up from the bottom. The hourglass shape is a pincushion problem. This can be as simple as a bad capacitor in the pincushion circuit.

Could you please confirm the model number so I can look up the probable part?

Thanks,
Dan

Tv screen has slight hourglass shape


A common fault are some of the electrolytic capacitors failing in the pin cushoning amp section, and probably in part of the scan amplifiers.

To service this will require the proper training and set-up to troubleshoot the set.

Take the set to a service center for an estimate. The cost can be at least an hour or two for the labour, and then the cost of the parts on top.

Bowing picture


may have blown your convergence, does it look like all 3 colors are hourglass or is it just one. If all 3 are bad and it is on the sides it may be a pincushon problem, I dont think you have an adjustment problem I think you have a part failure. If this set is older than about 5 years old it may be starting to have issues with the CRT coolant and the blue may be getting blury, the blue and green will need to be changed also. I would definitly call someone on this to make sure that you get all your bases covered as Fluid is conductive and can cause all kinds of issues up to fire hazzard. (of course that is if it is leaking, and that could be what caused your hourglass issue.)

Tv picture shaped like hour glass


The link you posted has been deleted, so I cannot see the picture you posted. If the sides bow in like an hourglass and the red, green and blue colors are still aligned then there is a horizontal width or pincussion problem, but if the sides bow in and the 3 colors have separated and are no longer anywhere near aligned then you have a convergence problem, both of which should be serviced by someone with experience in servicing projection TV's.
