Do you have a make and model for the TV? Looks like a serious convergence issue, which I would think may be easier to replace the entire unit instead of trying to repair it.

Unfortunately, I am not an electronics repair guy, so I don't have any idea what specifically would need to be done. There looked like there were some convergence boards available online, but I have no idea which one your TV actually needs, or if that's the issue at all. That's where an experienced repair shop would do better at, and I would expect a cost of between $100-$200 for the work.

Unfortunately, I just couldn't imagine recommending any money be spent on a model of this vintage. Instead, I would look for a free TV on Craigslist and start saving for a new flat panel display and keep an eye out for some great sales. Considering a brand new flat panel (39") TV can be had for about $250, it doesn't make much sense to spend more than about $50 trying to repair what you have.

Maybe $100 if you are sure it will fix it and you will be good for a few years more.
