I have a red and blue shadow in my picture

There is a red and blue shadow in my picture and have tried to fix the convergance, but it shows my blue is alligned and the red just won't allign. Some of the allignment lines are actually slanted. No matter what I try I can't seem to line them up, I can't even get them close! What do I do?

    I am experiencing the red and blue shadowing too but my problem includes a concave warping of the overall picture. Tried to use red balance adjust but it did nothing. Its like watching a 3D Imax Panoramic movie without the glasses! Help!

    This is the second time this has happened in the last 2 years to this tv. Had a repair man fix it the last time and cost my parents $260.00 to have it fixed. I would like to find out if i could fix it for them instead of a repair man. The red and blue shadowy lines look bad. Must of been something simple because it didn't take repair man very long to fix it. What do i need to replace for what ever is wrong?
