Question about Televison & Video
Note: This is upper left-hand corner of the picture.
Observation: The left hand side has double lines for red and green and blue ghost (shadow) in the middle of the grid.
We have tried Service Menu to set the Skew/CENT option for RED, BLUE and GREEN. The problem we have is that the 3/4 of the screen is perfectly aligned and good. Only left 1/4 is the way shown above in the picture.
When we tried to align the red, green and blue for left hand of the screen they go out of the alignment in the rest of the right hand.
1. What seems to be the problem?
2. Is it possible to fix this problem w/ Service Menu or do we need to replace a part?
3. Are there service menu option to correct portion of the screen?
Thank you in advance for the help.

You need to manually adjust the alignment:
On remote, press Menu to get to the main menu
Then arrow down to "ADVANCED FEATURES"
Then press "enter"
Then Arrow down to "CONVERGENCE" and press "enter"
"Red Convergence" should be highlighted
You now have Green, Red, and Blue overlapping crosses.
If Red is out of whack, use arrows to align
To toggle to blue (and back to red), press "VIDEO"
Then align blue cross
Once the crosses look aligned, and nice and white, press "AUDIO"
This will bring up the Advanced Convergence screen
This is a grid of the same overlapping colors
You have control over the Red and Blue
If Green is very out of whack, you'll need a repairman…
While the "target" is flashing, you can move it around the screen with the arrows
Place it over an intersection to adjust, then press "enter"
Now the "target" is steady (not flashing), and you can use the arrows move your color
When it's aligned, press "enter" again
Now "target is flashing, and you can go to the next square.
You cannot adjust every intersection.
Some areas need to be adjusted via the adjacent intersection
When you're happy with color you're working on,
Press "video" while target is flashing to change to the other color
Repeat the above (blue is much harder to see and adjust for me…)
When you're happy with the entire grid, start hitting "Menu"
Each press brings you back out one menu level, until you are out of them
Once you're used to the process, it should take no more than a minute or two.
