You will have to do a manual alignment and center the CRts after replaceing them. You will need the service manual in order to be able to do the alignment manually or you can mess the alignment up real bad. Heres a link where you can order the service manual for your Model they send it electronically within minutes of placeing the order.

Red and Yellow blurred picture

I had the same problem this week. I tried the convergence thing but it was impossible to fix. I still needed the repairman. He changed two convergence units ($325, parts and labor). Then the tv was still doing the same thing. We had to adjust the convergence and now everything is perfect. You will need your converter

Covergence Problem

What exactly are you seeing on the screen? If one of the colors is only slightly off, you should be able to correct it with the standard menu. If one or more of the colors has suddenly taken a dramatic shift, and is curved inward at a side, it means that one of your convergence output IC's has burned out. You should not attempt to realign the convergence if this happens because you will only be messing up all the settings, and when the new IC is installed, the picture will still be out of alignment.

Picture separated on 1/2 of screen

This sounds like a convergence problem. This is a common problem that is usually fixed 98% of the time by re-placing the STK392-020 ic or STK392-110, and check the fuse devices on the covergence PCB. I'm sure the actual parts numbers depend on the peticular brand. Good Luck!
