Hitachi 61" Ultravision Big Screen HDTV Convergence problems?

Hitachi 61" Ultravision Big Screen HDTV Convergence problems?(Hitachi Projection Color TV-61UDX10B) I was researching your site and convergence sounds like what our problem is. Our big screen is only 4yrs old and we are getting red and white lines around images. It almost looks like a ghost or that the set is out of focus. It is mostly on the right side of the screen. Sometimes faces have a bold red line along the outline of the face and arms on the right side.Sometimes it looks like a red ghost is ontop of the picture making it appear that two people are there. Background is out of focus while some objects are not. We were whacking the side of the TV when this occured for awhile and it went back into focus. Yes I know we have a large projection mirror inside but we did it anyhow. It was only a temporary fix. The internet said we may have problems with a connection that had broken so my husband touched each connection inside with a dowel to see if it adjusted anything thinking if we saw some change that connecting could be repaired. It also said to lift the side of the TV and put a magazine under it which worked for awhile. It also said a serviceman would probably charge alot and not find the problem if it was a broken connection. That didn't work. This problem has been going on for about a month now. When the TV first comes on it is fine then after its on awhile the double shadow with the red or white occurs. We have tried taking the back off, blowing out the dust and adjusting the red projector by turning it in another direction. It only got worse. Any ideas. We have no idea what we are doing? We paid alot for this TV..and hoped to get more than 4years out of it. I don't want to call a service man if he is going to jack us around. Any guidance would be appreciated my husband can fix everything except this it appears!!
Could our problem be something else?

This particual model does not

This particual model does not have "digital array" which allows you to use a test pattern display for convergence. It has something called "magic focus" it automatically does some adjustments by pushing a button. This did not result in a better quality picture. I think we need to mess with the 3 color tubes inside the tv to get them aligned. I know that the red tube was changed to a different adjustment this morning. I have read the green is stationary and that the red and blue can be adjusted to make a white line. What does this all mean??? Can someone explain. thanks.
