Sounds like convergence and there is nothing to adjust. You'll probably need to replace the convergence amps and one or more of the 2.2 ohm resistors in the yoke return out in front of the amps. That unit requires two STK392-110 Sanyo amps, personally I'd buy them from ACME sales in Florida. Lots of fakes out there that could cause you problems. You could also order about 6 of the 2.2 ohm resistors and just replace all of them as well. That should repair the unit.
The amps are mounted to an aluminum heat sink, multi-pin and hard to miss... Just take extra precaution de-soldering and soldering the new amps in...
