I believe I have a convergence and green shadows on images and print. What does it take to correct...estimated cost? Is it something I could do myself?

You need to purchase the convergence repair kit.Are you handy?
It comes with instructions.
A TV repairman will charge about $300-$400.
The kit is a fraction of the cost

If you paid that much for the same repair, man I am sorry. A repair like this should cost no more then a few hundred bucks. OK how much solid state printed circuit board repair experience do you have? If none, NO you should not attempt this repair. If you know someone who does, Great. The convergence amp.

You will need to locate them, order the right ones, as all convergence, Good Luck IC's are not alike, maybe that's why you set went bad again, as cheap or aftermarket type ICs will do this also. Goo luck, If you need more assistance with this, ands can find someone to assist you, or if you can do it yourself, please do not hesitate to get back with me.

It is symptom of convergence output ICs failure, replace convergence output ICs located on D board to fix this problem.
Call local tv repairman to replace defective ICs if you do not have prior experience of electronics stuff repair.

I was told by a repairman that my convergence module is bad on my ws 55511 or best buy model ws b55 was wondering what a convergence module cost. my power went off and when it came on the red images were...

Any shop with experience should be able to replace the convergence ICs which are the likely problem. This type of repair will cost less than the boaqrd replacment and won't require a conmplete reconvergence adjustment. The parts cost around $25-$40 each (there are 2).

I would look for someone that is able to change the ICs rather than the entire board.

Tv bows

I have the same TV and just finished having my TV repaired for the same problem. I was unable to converge the colors even in the advanced convergence setup menu. The lines were bowing so far that adjustment was not possible. I had to replace the vertical and horizontal convergence controllers located on the main electronics panel. They require a lot of soldering and should be done by a professional. Unfortunately this is a common "maintenance" repair that happens every 5-7 years, depending on the usage, costing around $500.00 for in home repair. DO NOT USE YOUR TV IF THE CONVERGENCE IS BAD AS IT MY CAUSE THE POWER SUPPLY TO BLOW resulting in addition repair costs.

Convergence issue?

This still could be the convergence . This will should be repaired by a tech if you do not know how to repair . Around $200 - $300 if you could get it to him or more if he has to make a service call . Call around for the best price as alot of shops vary in there charges. On this problem if it is the convergence make sure they will use the original IC's and not the cheap replacements as they do not hold up as long . Good luck

My projection tv sony 51 inch red out of focus

Your convergence output IC's have either shorted out or opened up, either way they will have to be replaced and possibly a resistor or two. One distant possiblity is the DCU or the Convergence Yoke, but most likely the IC's. You will probably want a tv repairman to do the repair as there is some soldering to do and some paste/ IC's to install/ calibrate. A repair like this could run from $300 - $500 for IC's depending on who does the repair, The Yoke or DCU would cost a couple hundred more.
