Your red CRT socket may be loose or have cracked solder if not, try turning down the red gun screen control inside the set just a little. Youre experienceing what is known as retrace lines

I have an rca model hd52w67 tv and there is a problem with the picture. the picture has a red and green picture that don't allign by about an inch. I think it is in the picture guns but i cant find a...

Do not align the guns! they are located facing up toward the mirror; they are picture tubes! covered with big glass lenses! heavy!
instead look for a red/green/blue adjustment knob on the set's front; the buttons should say: convergence or, crosshatch push the crosshatch button: once you have three vertical lines crossing three horizontal lines; just merge them using the other R/G/B knobs untill you have one white vertical line and, one horizontal line crossing in the center of the screen.
(you may have to find the controls on the remote using "setup")

Colors arched and overlapping

if the option for convergence is still listed under the setting section of the on screen menu, then you need a convergence power supply board. If the convergence option is missing from the menu you need the ITC222 convergence missing repair kit. You can get either one at the following link they include instructions for the repair.

This is for a different model, but I had thin horizontal lines in red and had to adjust the tube for red. You may have a similar adjustment on your set.

Red arching lines

is this that you are adjusting called convergence? If so then if it's really bad you can try to reset convergence, if not then the red needs to be aligned up with green first then blue on green. Can you provide a picture of what it looks like?

Faint red lines in a curved arch like pattern

Guys I did this myself real easy. Just don't turn the corresponding screw too far. Only need to adjust it until the lines go away. Do it on a darker screen so the lines are more visible. I did the red 2 years ago and the green 6months before that. The blue lines are coming on my screen now and I've fixed it in 10 minutes. The TV is amazing.
