My set is exhibiting horizontal non-linearity as described in this picture (except it is my left side that is squished) and it is extremely noticeable on horizontally scrolling retro games.

So the only linearity option I have in the service menu, LIN, only adjusts the vertical linearity. I've fiddled with all the other options and nothing seems to effect the horizontal linearity. Is there any way to fix this issue?

Since all tvs are properly adjusted from the factory, adjustments should never be needed.
I suspect you have a loose solder connection in the horizontal section or a weak oil filled capacitor in that section

Argh, I was afraid of that. I don't mind delving into the back of it, though. While I'm back there, would I be able to upgrade the voltage regulator to help with the "blooming" effect of bright images? I can definitely tell the screen gets "bigger" during bright screens and shrinks during dark screens (it reveals the actual edges of the image).

I'm also having another issue -- I'm getting some sort of "wrinkle" effect at the left and right edges of the screen, only on green and blue colors.
I tried my best to get a picture of the effect, you can faintly see it on the left side here:

It's a lot more noticeable in motion.

Should I just replace all the components in the horizontal deflection area of the board? Looks like all the parts are still available...
