This set uses two Stk-392-110 convergence IC chips; both need to be replaced along with any of the 2.2. ohm light blue resistors around them; a bad resistor will be white in the middle; You can buy both for less than 13 dollars plus shipping on Ebay.
The chips are located on metal heat sinks with fins and are side by side. They are black(about 2 inches wide by 1 1/2 tall) and should have the STK-392-110 number printed on them in white.
Depending on your level of skill at this kind of work you may be able to do it yourself---if you need step by step instructions contact me---I have them in Microsoft word---start to finish repair including what you will need to do it.
If you are not able to do the repair yourself now is the slow time of year for TV repair shops----It should be fixable right in your home and the repair takes about an hour--I have done hundreds of these sets--some shops charge 300-400 but I do lots of them for 200-250 total cost. Make sure whoever you get changes BOTH of the chips!
Shop around and if they say "needs to go to shop" keep looking; any good tech can do this right in your home.
I do this here for free so if this helps you give me a vote here. If you need direct help contact me.

Thats caused by a convergence failure. The Sony type 1 convergence repair kit from www.tvrepairworld.com will usually correct that issue the kit contains the components and the CD with repair instructions so you can repair yourself.

Testimonial: "This is by far the best response I have ever gotten on any question. Clear, concise and directed me to the source I needed to fix the problem."
Projection TV sets need to have all three colors - RED - BLUE - GREEN - lined up correctly on the screen in order for the video to look normal. When its out of alignment the video will look 3D, wavy, distorted, etc. Most of the time you just need to adjust your convergence in the TV menu. If you cannot adjust it in the menu - then your convergence is broken and needs to be repaired.
This is a very common failure on these projection sets and a fairly simple DIY fix. All projection sets including Samsung, RCA, Sony, Philip Magnavox, Panasonic, Pioneer, Akai, GE, JVC, Toshiba, and others at some point will have the same problem.
You can get a repair kit with parts and instructions from www.TvRepairKits.com
