You have a convergence problem. Here are some of the most common symptoms. 

Screen looks 3D
One or more colors can't be adjusted when when using the convergence menu. 
Screen is bowed in but stationary.

Solution: 

You need to replace the convergence chips and convergence resistors. Check the site www.TvRepairKits.com. They have put together a kit for your exact model. The kit inlcludes a photo instruction guide, original Sanyo STK chips, convergence resistors, etc. Everything you need to fix it yourself. Its an easy fix.

Your TV 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 STK392-110, 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 you need to order a resistor or two, 
http://servicemanuals.vstore.ca/index.php/cName/convergence-resistors   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!   If this STILL doesnt make it look right, you will need to find out how to get into service mode and do a coarse convergence adjustment. This information can be found in the Service manual for your set. If you dont have one you can download it at manualuniverse.com
Hope that helps!

Sounds like your convergence ICs are faulty If you cant move both red and blue in all 4 directions its usually your convergence amp ICs. They are prone to failure as they operate at such high temperatures. If you need any further info on this proceedure please let me know.

Do not open anything until you. Go to menu on your remote find convergence and press the volume button to the right go to manual and press right again. you should see a bunch of rectangles, now you should also see a set of red cross heirs press the #2 to move cross heirs up and eight to move down numbers 4 and 6 will move left and right and 5 will place the cross heirs back to the center once you have chosen the selected section to adjust line up the magenta with the other colors using the channel and volume buttons these move the lines up down left to right adjust all lines until they are white. i do not know how to switch from magenta to green or blue but this should get you started on the right track with out having to replace anything. good luck! if you figure out how to switch from maqgent to green or blue please post it so that I may adjust mine as well tahnks

Your convergence IC's are bad and maybe a few of the supply resistors. Not an expensive repair but definantly something you would want a technician to do for you. Hope this helps.

Convergence


Typical convergence IC falure. Need to replace both at once as if ones down now, a few months down the road another one will be down. This is not a consumer or end user replacable part. As its all soldered into place and your going to need to do a master convergence alighnment when they bare replaced.
