Rear projection tv

I just recently bought a rear projection tv from the classifieds, it looked fine when I went and purchased it but now that it is in my house it has a bit of a concave warp to the left side of the screen. What can I do to fix this?

This sounds like the solder joints have cracked on one of the convergence IC's or the IC itself has gone bad. First determine which color has shifted inward on the left side (let's say red)and then find which output IC is labeled with that color and an H (RH) and resolder or replace that IC.

It is worth getting an estimate. From the symptom you explained, it looks like the horizontal output transistor became defective.
