Zenith R56W36 covergence problem

I have a Zenith R56W36 pushed Auto Covergence and problem started, now it has a 3d effect and the colors do not line up, I have checked on menu there is no manuel covergence alignment only auto covergence. Is there a video alignment card I need to replace or what can I do, it seems I live in an area that no one wants to come to repair. So I may have to do it myself. Help would be appreciated

    I have the same problem, hit auto converge and now the screen is bowed, colors RGB are not lined up. I see many people have had these problems, I don't see anyone who has fixed this problem.

If you replaced the convergence ICs did you check the convergence resistors as well, as often the old ICs will take out a few resistors in the Convergence feed circuits or at least increase their values and that can give those symptoms youre describing after new ICs are instaleed.
