You will need to replace Both of the Convergence ICs ,Located on the left hand side board in back of TV. They are Big Black ICs and will have the part Number on them STK392-110 use the 120s.
Mats has ICs ,but tell them you want the convergence Kit for your Model it will have ICs and Resistors that come with it. ,You will also need to check Low Ohm resistors in the same circuit.

PS. What ever you do (DO NOT) Clear the DC Ram if you do, it Takes over 6 hrs to realine convergence.

There is most likely an issue with the Surround PWB since you have the DP17 chassis. I would check the following items on the surround board. I have seen them all several times with the DP17

IT02 Shorted, pins 92 and 93 caused by Solder splash. IT02 Is also known to fail. Also pins 42, 43, & 44 have been known to have cracked solder
IT05 pins 20 & 21 shorted also Seems to have been caused by too much solder.

IS13, pins 1 & 2 shorted ( too much solder

Also check for cracked circuit trace patterns under IT05If you need further assistance let me know.

Not all DVI inputs are the same. Do you have the manual handy to see if it supports analog DVI?

If it does, you should be able to just use A VGA cable with DVI adapter from your computer to the TV, Select the DVI input on the TV, and make sure your computer display settings are correct (this depends on a few things, so if you need help with that please reply back with more detail about your PC setup)

You just need to purchase and replace the projection bulb. That will restore the brightness back to factory new. The price should be about $90. Replacing the bulb isn't that hard but can be a bit difficult (actually annoying) if you have never done it before. If you can get a service guy to do it for you it will be worth the money. Figure about an hours labour for that.

I don;t know your location so can't help you find a repair shop. If you call either the place that sold it or any place that sells them they should be able to tell you who ro where to contact. This is a repair you can do yourself if you are comfortable with it. The bulb is screwwed down with 4 screws and there should only be one connector on that model. If you take your time and keep track of how you got in and what you took apart first then its pretty simple. It can be a bit daunting the first time which is why I would suggest a repair shop if you have any qualms.

You need to locate and replace both of the two convergence chips the set uses. Most likely they will be STK-392-110 BUT THE NUMBER WILL BE PRINTED ON THEM IN WHITE.

total parts cost if you can do it yourself will be under 30 dollars.

I will attach a photo of typical chips for you.
