Your convergence has failed and needs to be repaired. Once quick test is to goto your convergence menu and see if you can adjust red and blue. If not its has failed and needs to be fixed. You can call in a repair shop or you can get the parts and instructions from www.TvRepairKits.com
and do the repair yourself. Its a fairly easy DIY fix.

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.

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

KP-57WS500 turning green or red and then off


Green and Red guns seems defective and requires replacement.
Both guns (CRTs) are no longer available so TV has no worth to repair.
