When we try to adjust red cross, red adjustment will go side to side but not up and down. Red horizontal line is curved instead of a straight horizontal line. Blue can be adjusted up and down and don't...

Thats the classic sign of failed convergence ICs and resistors. You can get the convergence repair kit for your model at the kit contains the parts and the Cd with instructions.

Convergence issue... I tried to manually fix it through the menu option without any luck. The convergence does curve at the top and bottom of the screen.

It seems the solder is broken in Vertical Convergence Amplifiers or it is damage internally. This model has 2 Conv. Amps: 1 for Horizontal (Red, Green and Blue) and 1 for Vertical Convergence output (Red, Green and Blue), if the convergence does curve at the top and bottom, it is because Vertical Converegence output is no good. The Conv. Amp. costs around 20 dlls. Thats why you can not fix it with the Menu option. Good luck!

Red and Blue seperate and picture curved toward the middle

You have a hardware problem, you cannot fix it using the menu. in fact you could make it worse.

Try googling DIY convergence repair if you can solder.

If not then call in a pro, about $300

Red and blue streaks across the screen top and bottom

The Convergence Amp IC's are bad. You should call a good TV Tech for this repair.

Picture stretching with Red, Green, and Blue Image Overlays

assuming that you have adjusted the convergence and this had no effect. you might have some blown convergence chips and/or resistors. these make the 3 color line up with each other.. my 55 in phillips did the same thing and the more i used it the worst it got. first it was the blue and the red and finally the green., replaced chips and resistors and the problem went away... good luck.. a lot of soldering involved. but the chips are only like 11.00 each and the resistors are like ten for all three.

I have bright pink and green on tv

this is a typical symptom of convergence. i.e red and blue beams arent not focus.
the convergence ics need to be replaced (check for open resistors), followed by a refocusing

pls rate me!

Red gun problem phillips 60pp9202/17f

Same sort of problem here. My red looks like it's pinched in the middle and is curving inward. The whole picture looks like you should have 3-D glasses. I've heard it's a problem with a convergence chip, but I have no clue how much that will cost to have someone come fix and we live in a rural area in MO. I'm sure that will jack up the price. Mine is only about 4 years old, I wonder how much I could sell it for (as is) and buy a new TV.
