You have hardware failure of the Convergence IC's, and also possibly some fuses and resistors. This repair requires good soldering skills and I do not suggest anyone that doesn't have prior experience try to fix it. Here is a free website that gives lots of good information on how to :

If you hire a repair service it will cost $350-$400 parts and labor. Try and get a service that does all repairs in the home. This repair can be done in about an hour and half by a good technician. There is no need to haul the Tv away for weeks.
