Picture has shadows and distorts but when i tap the side of the tv it jumps back and is fine. Seems like a loose connection.

it could be a wire plug not seated properly on the DCU. I would inspect the wire connections to insure they are al seated properly

FOR some reason our big screen keeps seperating the three colors, greeen red and blue. Every now and then they will line back up and the screen will clear up but it will jump back and forth all the time,...

Sounds like you have loose solder connections on the convergence ic's. If you have a soldering iron and solder then it will be an easy fix. There are 2 convergence ic's, and they will be mounted to large heat sinks. When you get the back off of the tv, you can tap around on the boards with the handle of a screwdriver or anything else nonconductive and see if it will act up. You may even try banging on the side of the set w/ your hand to see if it acts up. If it isn't loose connections, then the ic's will need to be changed, and possibly some resistors.
