    I guess on other channels there is a red tent down the left side of the screen too.

Hi, convergence circuit has failed, this usually involves two STK 392-xxx Ic`s and sometimes a couple of low Ohm resistors, If you are proficient at soldering and have an accurate voltmeter and a lot of patience you can do this, If you are NOT proficient at soldering call a tech or you WILL make the problem worse, If you decide to go for it e-mail me back and I`ll tell you a good place to get the right stk`s not the cheap chinese crap you`ll find on-line, BMW Rider

My tv projection screen is blurred by red and blue and green lines...the tv looks like it is double other show the same person next to the orginal person like 2 inches apart what...

You have a Convergence circuit failure. Both Convergence IC's probably need to be replaced and possibly a small value resister also is burnt and needs to be replaced. I recommend that a Qualified Service Person come out and verify the failure and give you a estimate. I would estimate around 380.00 to 400.00 for repairs. (This also includes the Service Call fee.)
Hope this helps,

Good Day, nutrisal;

Sounds like bad convergence IC’s, chips. Hit recommends using STK392-150’s and replacing the bias resistors. You seek a factory authorized service center.
Good Luck, Big Irish.
