HItach cp-s860 problem

On my Hitachi CP-S860 projector, I am getting some vertical green lines and green and red shadowing on the right side. I also have two vertical thick purple lines on both sides of the screen that don't distort the picture too much, I just know that it can work better, so I want to fix it. I have no clue as to how to fix these problems and would appreciate some enlightenment.

I have the same Hitachi CP-S860 and have found the problem is with the convergence on the left and right sides of the picture. The one I am working on has a bad ghosting problem also - you can really see the ghosting when the MENU is on the screen. The center convergence is OK. Following Pics show Circle / Cross pattern - 1st pic the red, green and blue are turned on - 2nd pic shows green and blue on only. I do not have the service manual for this set so I do not know the convergence procedure on this one. I have mostly been repairing NEC, Sanyo, Panasonic and Christie LCD & DLP Projectors.

When you have no inputs into the projector let it enter standby mode, then press down, then up, left, then right. This will take you into the service menu. Once in the menu find the adjust option , scroll down to the 3rd line 2111-16 (POS_CNT2) and change that.
