It's a convergence problem, go into Settings in the TV menu and select Convergence if Auto it will do it when you select this. If not it will ask you to do "Multi-Point Convergence" which will bring up a huge grid on your screen. You must use the TV remote and using your up and down and left and right buttons to place the "curser" on each grid and adjust the Red and Blue on each point till you get a pure white "grid point" Think of the picture as split up into say 72 different puzzle pieces and when you adjust each piece it fixes that one piece of the puzzle or screen. You want all lines to be pure white and by looking at the grid if you see either blue or red on the side of the white line, you want to move the right, left, up or down button so that the blue or red line gets back on track with it's corresponding white line grid.
It sounds complicated but you will get it after a few seconds of playing around with it. Convergence should be done after the TV has been on for at least 30 minutes and should be done at least once a year (twice would be better at minimum) You see the problem with RPTV is they use three color lenses and as you watch TV, the lenses over time get out of alignemnt and need to be readjusted to get a clear sharp picture.
It may take a while to do it especially if convergens has not been done in years. Do not give up after 2 or 3 tries.
