Yes, I used to work in Best Buy and one of the key things about rear projection TVs and the reason they push those service plans on you is that the tubes/colors need to be calibrated each year. You can do this yourself by checking out the following website:
If you are not able to adjust the convergence using the remote you will need to replace the convergence chips.
1) Convergence menu does not work for one or more colors.
Such as: Red moves up,down, but left or right fails.
2) Screen is bowed looking.
If you have one or more of the problems above you need to replace the convergence chips. You can get a kit and instructions from www.TvRepairKits.com
Hope this helps :)

Easy DIY Fix...See below.
Your TV most likely has one or more possible problems.
Problem #1: Convergence Chip Failure ( common problem )
Here are some of the most common symptoms and example photos of a convergence problem
Here is a quick test....
Using your original remote go-to the tv settings then goto the convergence section.
Try to adjust the red and then the blue convergence.
You should be able to move them up, down, left, and right.
If you can't move them in all directions your convergence chips are bad and should be replaced. This is a common problem.
You need to replace the convergence chips and convergence resistors. Check the site www.TvRepairKits.com. They have put together a kits for most models. If you don't see a kit for your set send them a quick note and they will put one together for you. Their kits include a photo instruction guide, original OEM Sanyo STK chips, convergence resistors, pico fuses, etc.
Problem #2 CRT Fluid is Cloudy
Projection TV tubes have a liquid coolant that is used to keep them from overheating. After many years the coolant in the blue and green tubes will become cloudy and cause the screen to look dull, red/orange, etc. You may even see halos around images.
Picture of a set that needs the fluid changed.

What you will need to do is replace the coolant and clean the crt. You can get a repair kit from www.TvRepairKits.com that includes replacement coolant, photos. instructions, etc.

There is clear fluid in the 3 color tubes to keep them cool. The fluid is simular to antifreeze. Try an ebay search for "TV COOLANT". You have to make sure not to spil ANY on your board or you will be very upset. This is oil based and will ruin the board "CAN NOT BE REMOVED". What clouds these TVS up is bacteria growth. Normally it can not survive under the red lamps. Blue is the main one to cause this. To check for growth, you have to look in the lens when it is on. You will see small spots. Once open you have to wipe and clean the spots off before adding new fluid. Fluid is very cheap. A shop will charge a couple hundred to change each tube. Use 100% silicone around both sides of gasket before resealing. Also lay a plastic garbage bag under the lamp for a few days with a towel on top of that. IF you have a leak, this will keep it off your boards. A trick to doing this easily is lean the Tv foward so the lamps are level and use a turkey baster to **** ALL the old fluid out. You can also use any type of suction tubes.
