Projectors Misaligned?

Well for some reason I've noticed today that on the right 1/3 of my screen there is blue on the right edge of everything, worst when white things are displayed. I've noticed this with cable and dvd (very bad with dvd dvi). I've also noticed, mostly only when i first start the tv that it is jittery and the top 1/5 of the screen is all curvy (like every other 10 lines or so are pushed toward one side of the screen) this then goes away (maybe when the lamps heat up?) and every once in a while the left 1/20 of the screen will do this same thing again. What is this problem? Is this just a misaligned blue lamp (had the tv for a year and a half w/o any adjustment), or something more serious? This is especially odd since this was not like this last night but now today it is very bad.

Edit: the tv is a 42 inch toshiba rear projection crt

Sounds like the guns are misaligned and need adjustments. If the TV is still under warranty you should get it serviced.

Adjustment of the guns is called convergence, but he has geometry issues as well that sound like problems with the electronics. Definately needs service.
