    how do I try to adjust them?

    if I need to buy a part, is it just the one part STK392-120 and where is the cheapest place to buy them?

    if I have somebody else do it, about how much does it cost?

    is there an instruction sheet or page that explains how to do it?

    I believe we are having the same problem with the same tv. but I'm a bit confused by the description of red and green. Although the picture has the same bowing in the same colors...I see blue and yellow "ora's". Would this still be the same fix?

Sounds like your convergence amps are probably bad. Check out and see if you have similar bowing between red and green when you try multipoint convergence. If so, you'll need new convergence amps, part STK392-120. Most people who are handy with a soldering iron can replace these parts in a couple hours.

    You'll want to see, which details the whole procedure for a similar set. If you're up to it, you can purchase 2 convergence amps for $20 at, along with some heat sink compouds. Some people have also found 12 6.8 ohm resistors that are also a good idea to replace, but I found mine were fine and just the convergence amps did the trick. I have the tech manual that shows how to dissassemble, but it's around a 12M pdf file. There are 5 screws you need to pull out once you take off the rear panel, and lots of wires to label and make sure you get back in the right place. You should also be somewhat handy with a soldering iron, and have a solder sucker and some basic tools. It took me around 3 hours to do, but now my set works like a champ!

VIZIO P42hd PS42a plasma Picture has two vertical lines (one red/orange, one blue) going down the right-hand side of the screen. Lines are clearly visible

The panel is almost certainly bad. The only fix for this is to replace the whole panel which would cost more than the whole TV.

KP-51HW40 Sony 51" Fades to blue screen

The service manual on page 8 shows how to adjust the Red/Blue/Green screen voltages. To get to the adjustment board, take the front speaker grill off (two screws at the bottom left and right) and set it aside. No need to disconnect any wires. Then remove the plywood board with 4 screws that exposes the screen/focus adjustments. The top 3 adjustments are for focus, and you need not mess with these. The bottom 3 adjustments are for Red/Blue/Green screen voltage rough adjustments. My screen showed red lines, so I had to turn the bottom right adjustment with a philips head screwdriver just slightly until the red gun retrace lines where no longer visible.

Curved blue lines on screen.

You have a completely different problem. The screen voltage for the blue picture tube is slightly too high on your set. This will put fine lines in the background of the picture, called retrace lines. This is very common and easy to correct. Remove the front speaker cover and the access panel behind it. Look inside and you will see a black box with six controls, each control having a little white glue on it. This is the Focus/Screen block. Three controls are labeled Focus and three are labeled Screen. The screen control in the center is for green but I am not sure if the screen control on the left or right is for blue for your model. With the TV on, set it to VIDEO 1 but do not connect anything to the VIDEO 1 jacks. This will produce a pure dark picture, showing any faint lines in the background. Choose one of the screen controls and increase (turn clockwise) it slightly. If the blue lines do not get brighter it means you are turning the red screen control, so put it back where it was and choose the other screen control. When you find the blue screen control, decrease (turn counter-clockwise) it until just when the blue lines are gone. If you want you can check that the red and green screen controls are set to just below the point where their faint lines are visible. When done, replace the panels and your picture will be back to perfect.
