Copy of picture and words slightly to the left side in red
A relative gave us our tv 2 days ago and there is a red copy of everything slightly to the left of where it should blend in with the rest of the picture and words. Maybe the red bulb got knocked out of place??? Not sure how to fix it, please help. Thank you :)

There are 2 things you try. go into menu to picture setup scroll down to sharpness,back this setting all the off. If this doesn't do it, go to back of the set on right hand side, if you can see focus slot adjust it slightly.
HI... I t sound like the De-gauss circuit has failed. De-gauss demagnetizes the TV tube so you dont get what youre seeing. It could be something as simple as a solder joint on one of the parts in that circuit. I fixed my Panasonic that way
You need service. Sounds like the convergence is out of adjustment. As the picture is formed by a tri- gun arrangement (one for each colour), if any of them is not correctly aligned, you will see shadows on any sharp line like text, or blurring on a picture. The shadow or blurring will often be one colour i e. red, blue or green.
you have a shorted green CRT that is affecting the other crts the short is internat to the crt that leaves what is called retrace lines. if the set is more than three years old then replace all three guns.
now only visible in a thin horizontal line.
first of all you reduce brightness to monimum.
it just to protect your tv from crt demage.
your problem is in horizontal output section as you have mentioned that week or so ago the right and left bottom edges of the picture began to move in like a sideways triangle filled with black so this sympton is due to hor. section problem.
your flyback transformer or horizontal output might be defective.
but remember check for power supply is ok from
hope this will help.
I believe your set has a loose conection that needs to be resoldered ,every time you hit it reacts and that is good,you need to use a wooden or rubber handle to tap in the main board,around the tuner and in different areas until it reacts,be attentive when it does so you can flip the board and resoldered the area that made it react,once the problem is corrected you need to resoldered any other overheated areas and there should be a few in your set,check the grounds in the tuner(where the coax goes in the inside,is a silver box),the horizontal driver transformer and output transformer.Be careful while you do this and stay away from the thick red wire going to the back of the picture tube specially when the set is on.
Let Us know how it goes or if you need more information.
I would try adjusting the screen control on the flyback. The flyback can be easly located, find the red wire attached to the top of the picture tube & follow it down to the flyback. on the flyback you should find two controls, one screen & one focus. you sould be able to read the words above each control, only adjust the screen one. slightly increase the control till the picture stays on, if you turn it too much you will get small white lines going across the screen. Now if what i have told you fixes the set, then it is only a tempoary repair. could last days or mothes, maybe years. if it starts to happen again later the set will have to be replaced. this is a sign of the picture tube starting to get a weak. ALSO DO NOT PLAY WITH THE RED WIRE IT CARRES VERY HIGH VOLTAGES EVEN WHAN UNPLUGGED FOR DAYS.
