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?

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.
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?
The shape your seeing is called 'V Bow' and 'Pincushion' which needs to be calibrated again.
Theres probably a diode that went out. The tech can open it up and adjust the angles back. I wouldn't charge over $100-$150. Shop around for a good repair tech. Good Luck poe_diddley.
Generally,pincushion may be driven by a chip or
IC,but pin out is normally a durable xistor.
Servicer adjustments are minor for pin correction.Go to pin out circuit & measure voltages.Get back to me on your findings.
