This is a convergence problem. You will need the stk's changed and a pico fuse or 2. also from looking at the pic you might want to clean the lenses and mirror after the repair to bring back some of the vibrant colors the set once had when it was new. This repair should run you anywhere from $300-$500 depending on your area and the tech that comes out. If you need more information or would like to try to fix it on your own please let me know.

Samsung HCM5525W TV red blue outlines on images

The Samsung has bad convergence IC's most likly. This should be repair ONLY by a trained technician as a TV set is not a place to experiment or tinker with because of the extremly high voltage inside. This repair should cost you in the range of 250 to 400 bucks . Good Luck
