There is another method that is more fun...
you need a drill and some magnets.. the magnets need to be somewhat big..

first, you put some long point to the drill, and on that long point, you STRONGLY TIE OR GLUE the magnets to the tip...

then point at the screen with it and shoot for a few secodns...

the screen will look like if its on acid, and it will be fixed.. ill see if i can find a video so you can see better..

Your screen was magnatized.. try unpluging the set then plugging it back on serval times. turn it off and on but wait a min before turning it back on. each time.. Most tv have a special coil around the tube the demagnatizes the tube.. otherwize you can use a what is know as deguasser.

Hi, this sounds like your TV needs De-Gaussing, the screen has become magnetised and the electrons being fired at the screen are being diverted or scattered and mixed to the area's that are magnetised creating the odd colours, what you need is a de-gaussing coil, you can wave this in a pattern to de-magnetise the screen thus allowing the electrons to flow properly to the screen, it may also be the PTC on the tv's PCB near the mains input, if this is faulty the tv's own degaussing coil may not operate properly, you local TV technician maybe able to help with this as the part is specific to the TV, they maybe able to degauss it too for a small fee.

Here's a better expaliation ---> CLICK HERE <---- it shows a circular pattern here but there are many kinds of pattern magnetism can create but the colours are nearly always the same just in different places witn different strengths.

Hope this helps.

Red and green snow near the sides of the screen

As in there's blotches of red and green at the edges, but the image is still there?
If so, then your screen may have come into contact with magnets, or maybe the alignments are off (TVs align overlapping images in red, green, and blue).
As always, check with the manufacturer support lines, as they would have specific information for these kinds of scenarios.

There is a red shadow on the right side of the screen is there any to fix this?

shadow indicates damage but also indicate a small damage produced by a speaker
did you have one very near
did you ever have a magnet nerby
you would have to de-magnetise it and you will see the shadow will disappear
if not this problem than a tube damage indicates this

Lower right corner has green haze

I am not sure what make and model of TV you have, if it is a standard TV then a ground strap holding you CRT imaging tube in pace might need to be deguassed or demagnetised.

green, red, blue blotches on the screen are indications of a magnetic field corrupting the screens electron flow to the image screen.

It sounds like your light engine is on it way out. I would have this verified by a service center. Very costly to replace. They will probably try a new lamp first.

The 3 colors are off, i have shadows and arches in the screen

It is failure of convergence ICs and these two ICs will be replaced on D board.
If you are comfortable with TV repair and know good soldering skills then can do the job easily.
Convergence ICs are mounted with sliver heat-sink on D Board of TV and part number will start with letter STK...
Get back to me if you need further info.

Screen is filled with a circular Red/Green/Blue pattern

The problem will be with the de-gausing circuit, this de-magnetises the tube when the set is switched on from cold, this is a fault you will need to get an engineer to look at ie, not a D.I.Y repair.

Blue screen and red padlock

It sounds to me like a child lock function, which is usually what the screen + padlock is on TVs. Usually your original remote would have a button / sequence to unlock the mode. If you still have your original remote, look for a child lock button or refer to your remote manual (and/or TV manual for the child lock feature) to unlock the mode.
