Question Broken TV

I've got an older Sony tube TV, it's rarely been used because about a year after we bought it we started having problems with it. Whenever you turn it on the picture will be normal and then it'll shrink to about half the screen and then will totally go away. Anyone have any clues as to what I might need to fix? I wanted to check here before I take it to a shop and spend $100 just to have them look at it.

Over five thousand years ago, Moses said to the children of Israel, "Pick up your shovel, mount your asses and camels, and I will lead you to the Promised Land." Nearly 75 years ago, Roosevelt said,"Lay down your shovels, sit on your asses, and light up a camel, this is the Promised Land." Now Obama has stolen your shovel..., taxed your asses, raised the price of camels and mortgaged the Promised Land!

Any clue if that's something I could easily fix myself?
