Hi, I used to work in Best Buy and one of the key things about rear projection TVs and the reason they push those service plans on you is that the tubes/colors need to be calibrated each year. You can do this yourself by checking out the following website:  

http://lgknowledgebase.com/kb/index.php?View=entry&EntryID=3229 

If you are not able to adjust the convergence using the remote you will need to replace the convergence chips. 

Typical Symptoms

1) Convergence menu does not work for one or more colors.  
Such as: Red moves up,down, but left or right fails. 

2) Screen is bowed looking.

If you have one or more of the problems above you need to replace the convergence chips. You can get a kit and instructions from www.TvRepairKits.com  

Hope this helps :)

Red and green color cast a shadow like effect near top of the screen


Projection TV sets are known to have two common problems. The first problem that is common to these sets is convergence failure. When this happens the TV will usually look 3D, Wavy/Distorted, etc. It may also shutdown and blink an error code.

The second common problem with Projection TV sets is dull video, halos around objects, white looking video, or red overpowers the screen. This is commonly caused by the fluid in the lens being clouded overs.

PICTURE


By the picture that you have supplied with the question you have a rear projection tv. The problem you are describing sounds like you have had the convergence module in your tv fail. Depending on the age and make of the tv, the repair costs ( if out of warranty ) can be prohibitive. The convergence module on rear projection tv's not only is in charge of bringing the 3 different color images together into a watchable picture but also handles the east west correction ( concave / convex aspect to the picture or lack there of ).

Consistent Yellow shadow on my 27inch toshiba


This problem is usually caused by stray magnetic field,from magnetic objects (e.g Loud speakers)placed too close to your TV set. The solution to this is to place such objects away from your TV set.As you take the suspected object away the shadow may disappear,if it doesnt then it will need your TV set to cool down,by turning it OFF for sometime,may be the next morning,depending on the room temperature.If it persists it should be DEGAUSED.
