Hi there I hope you already have a solution. If not here's what I did to the same model set. I replaced 2 STK392-120 Chips and all 12 6.8 5% metal film resistors. Was about a 1 hour fix from start to finish.
the parts are located on the SSM panel inside the tv.

There is a mode these set run in that stretches the side so the screen is completely filled, this is so the people do not seem all fat and short, this mode is known as Panoramic, this is one of the screen settings you can choose, I believe your set has a 4X5 or normal mode, 16X9 and maby a 16X9 zoom, the panoramic and maybe one more, find the format button on the remote and cycle through them

If it looks anything like the picture (3D etc) it will need the "Convergence circuit" repaired.

Let me know if you have questions.

60" Rear Projection TV


sounds like a convergence chip problem...

here is my general post for the 51 inch you'll have to look at the link for the manual and check to see if you have the STK392-120 chips or somthing bigger in the 60"


51MP392H/17
you need 2 Convergence IC's STK392-120's (120's and 150's will work) of course order 2 of the same type I'm using replacement 150's they allow for a little higher heat and were cheaper ALSO you need to replace the 12 resistors with 6.8 ohm metal film resistors, make sure they are metal film! don’t skimp out here I did and then they blew and fried my IC's and I had to replace everything again!

Great reference link that I posted
pictures on, check out page 3
