Toshiba 30HF84 display issue

Hi guys, I have a problem I was hoping I could get some help with.

I have a Toshiba 30HF84, have had it for about 3 years with no issues. Two nights ago, I turned it on using the universal remote from my STB, and it shut itself off again. When I turned it back on, the display was messed up. It looks like a piece of paper with a curve in it, and the display is now too large for the screen (OSD's which are supposed to be in the corners are now barely on the screen, most of it is off-screen). For an idea of what I mean by the display looks "curved", see below:











(apparently it won't let me put spaces before the left side slashes. The left is a mirror image of the right in my issue)

This effect varies in intensity and location (sometimes more/less bowing, sometimes lower than the middle of the screen) depending on what is on screen at the time. Sometimes instead of the middle bowing out, the bottom is "pinched" in (think "Hourglass waist").

Can anyone tell me what the problem may be, and what an estimated cost to fix it may be?
