    Burn in ... put up a white field and see if there is a distinct change on both sides ...

    No repair solution short of replacing the CRTs.

    Watching in 16:9 mode from now on may reduce the intensity over time.

    as said, check uniformity with a white field at various %.

    Have you been running the set at the original settings? If so, quite possible you have burn in. That's why one calibrates a display and significantly lowers white level.
