I know what is wrong with your set but i am not at my shop in order to let you know what it is,it is a cap in high voltage area.let me know if you still need help with this.

Part of the picture is off screen


Likely convergence failure. Hard repair. Needs TV shop to repair. Picture will be partially hour-glass shaped and the will be multi-colored picture parts.

The picture on my Sony is shaped like an hour glass


There is an apparatus on the back of your picture tube called a yoke.This distributes your picture on your pic tube uniformly.If this or the circuits enabling it malfunction,then you will get distortion-namely an hour glass shape.Tv has to be trouble shooted.

I need to find the pincushion circuit on my RCA F32632SB TV to check a problem with the TV displaying an hour glass picture. Where can I find a picture of this or a manual to guide me to the circuit?


The pincushion it intimately related to the horizontal circuits,the electron beam must travel farther to reach the corners of the crt and it does to the middle and so without pincushion circuits the raster would be bowed in on the sides on crts 27 inches are larger.Pincushion corrections straightens the raster by modulating the horizontal yoke current at a vertical rate.In an RCA tv the pincushion circuits are usually numbered 4800and the pin amp will probably be numbered 4801,its drive transistor should be Q4802,R4802 will be the width control,and R4805 the e/w pin amplitude. its inputs from the vertical should be Q4801 (subtractor) Q4803 (buffer) you should have a parabola waveform at 4801,yoke current can be modulated here without effecting high voltage.when Q4802 conducts voltage should decrease across Q4801 and the voltage drop across the yoke increases. The east west pin amp control 4805 controls how much of the vertical parabola is input to U4801 to compensate for changes in width caused by variations in beam current.By varying the e/w control resistor you can know if the circuit fault is in the input or output,if the picture varies in size the fault is in the input to U4801,if it does not vary check the output or U4801......hope that helps

Hour Glass picture on a RCA TV F32632SB


I looked up this model and found the following electolytic capacitors to be the most likely culprits within the pincushion circuit. Check these first. The starred one is the one I have replaced in the past to resolve this.

C4851 10ufd 50V
C4853 10ufd 63V
C4854 2.2ufd 100V
C4855 2.2ufd 50V
* C4862 100ufd 25V

Good luck,
Dan

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

RCA TV with an hour glass shaped picture


I am sorry that its took so long for me to reply been backed up in shop, anyway what you have is bad solder joints on large Diodes Resolder ends on all of them and this should slove your problem if you havent done so by now.

Shrinking picture


picture is starting to curve in from the sides like the shape of an hour glass. Is the tube shot? NO. is it something less costly? YES YOUR PROBLEM is in pincushion correction circuit.call skilled tech to fix it. it will not take much time. good luck.

Big cap in the regulation ckt is bad. Depending on model could be various values, a shop could use their ESR meter to find and replace it.

Picture shaped like hour glass


You have a PIN CUSHION problem, is usually a bad capacitor or open resistor in the above cicuit. Check all the caps around the horizontal output transister for ESR leakage.

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.
