The color has gone crazy on you because your convergence IC's have gone bad.
These IC's operate at a very high temp, and usually only last 4-5 years. 
If you remove the back of the set, you will want to look for the BIGGEST heatsink in there, on that heatsink, you will see 2 lage IC's , probably STK392-040, or STK392-120's or something close...regardless - you can go on ebay to order the new ones, but MAKE SURE they are Genuine SANYO IC's and not counterfiet cheapies. the cheap ones may only last 2 months..
You will also need some "Heat transfer paste" - you can pick this up at radio shack.
Once you remove the old IC's, test all the large resistors near them.. pull one side of the resistor out of the board so you can check it out of circuit. they will usually have the value in Ohms, printed directly on the resistor, but you may have to use the resistor color code to find out what value they are....However, usually if there is any damage, the resistor will look like it has been HOT or fried. replace the IC's and any bad resistors, and you should be good to go.
If after replacing the IC's and any defective resistors, the convergence is still bad, make sure to use a multimeter to check ALL fuses on the boards, --- sometimes when the IC's go, they will take out a fuse to the convergence power supply. If you find any bad fuses, replace them accordingly!
Hope that helps!

The red and green do not line up properly has ghosting images


go into the convergence mode in the customer menu---if either red or blue do not adjust in any direction---bad convergence Ic's, The Ic's are located on a rather large heat sink with fins and should be stk-392-560's(there are 2)

Tv turns on but has a shadow around evrything


Do you have any speakers or magnets next to the tv? If so, that is not good.
It may be a convergance issue. Check to see if you have any adjustments on the back of your tv to adjust picture. If not, if may be a faulty capacitor that needs to be replaced

My Sony KP-57WS500 57 inch TV is showing a double image. The pictures have a shadow.


If the colors are separated, this is a convergence problem that can be as simple as poor connections on the convergence ICs or defective ICs. Please provide a more detailed description if you can. If you can solder, you may be able to fix this yourself. Let me know if you wish to attempt the repair.

Thanks,
Dan

TRY THE MAGIC FOCUS BUTTON. IF THIS DOES NOT CORRECT THE PROBLEM YOU WILL NEED A SERVICER TO GO IN AND REPAIR CONNECTIONS OR REPLACE THE CONVERGENCE IC'S AND OR RESISTORS. AND READJUST CONVERGENCE IN THE SERVICE MODE.

did you replace or check the 4.7 ohm 1/2 watt resistors or the 6 pico fuses when you changed ICs? If not thats most likely your problem.
