You have convergence problems. The convergence IC's that line up the red, green and blue crt's are bad. They will need to be replaced. Suggest a qualified tech do the work due to the complexity and alignments afterward

    Who manufactured the TV (Hitachi, Toshiba, etc) and if you have it, what is the model number

    With a sony, it may be worth your while to at least get an estimate. If the cost is around $400, it may be time to upgrade. Tv's are getting less and less expensive now. If it's convergence problems, depending on where you live, you are looking at $200-$300 dollars. Please take the time to rate my solution and if I can be of further assistance, let me know

Without the model# I won't be able to give a better answer than the following:
If this is a CRT type of TV set and you see red, green and blue colors bowed then, your problem could be in the convergence circuit, to fix it you're looking to spend around $200 and up.

Best of luck

Video distortion

You need to take your tv in and have the picture deflector re-aligned.  This doesn't cost much, My dad had to do that to his a few months ago and it cost 30 bucks.
