it could be a capasitor but more likely its the mains transformer they can leak a little or a lot and this will desifer how long your tv will continue to run as when its leak gets to large the power will drop and stop the unit from working the problem her is if not replaced asap it could down other components when it goes making the repair more expensive and harder to find. i would suggest you have it repaired as soon as possible the transformer cost around $ 180 - $ 200 to have replaced

hope this helps you dicide

Hour glass distortion usually points to a deflection yoke problem. The next step would be to do a ringing test on the yoke.

This is neither Convergence nor Fuse problem. You need to Call a tech to Replace that as it is Really Difficult to Fix this. I would rate this as 8/10 on DIY.

Let me know, if needed further assistance.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!
