There are two common problems with these sets.
Problem #1) Convergence

This sounds like a convergence problem.
If model number is AV48WP30 go into the customer menu and select CONVERGENCE---if Red or Blue will not move in some direction one or both of the two STK-392-110 CHIPS this set uses for convergence is bad.
What happens is the convergence chips are black in color--about 2 1/2 inches wide X 1 1/2 inches tall with 18 pins each----the back of each is metal--when they are installed(each is mounted to a metal heatsink to keep it cool) they apply a white grease to transfer heat quickly----
After some years the grease dries out and one of the chips overheats and fails.
Not a real hard repair to do if you are handy and know how to solder----
Most shops are going to charge about 300 or more for this repair-----considering you can buy all the parts for under 25 dollars if you or someone you know can do it you can save a lot of money.
I can give you general instructions for this repair on this set.
I have repaired hundreds of sets with convergence troubles--very common problem.
Let me know if you have questions or need advice.
