Nice pictures, but it's hard to see what you mean. A picture of color bars or a bunch of text like in the cabletv guide might be better. Same on all inputs?
Have you considered it might need aa simple cleaning first, of the main mirror and main lens? Are you up to taking the front of it apart? From simply looking at the openings in the back, does it look dusty? Does it smell like cigarette smoke? Have you searched the internet for a free Service Manual to show you how to take it apart? (Different from an Owner's Manual)
Is the screen in place? If you set a straightedge across the front of the tv, does the screen appear to be parallel everwhere to the plane of the front of the tv? Does the screen seem loose in its tracks anywhere?
DON'T attack it with canned air, whatever you do. Don't use any commercial cleaning products on the inside of the tv. The lens is delicate plastic, and the main mirror is a thin film of aluminum on glass.
