HI
Allow me to take you through it and it may cost as little as $20. It's really not that hard. $350 sounds like too much.

How do I adjust the manual convergence? I am in the settings, but my TV is not letting me adjust anything. I chose the "reset to factory" choice, but that didn't fix the red/green shadows


Your convergence has failed and needs to be repaired. Once quick test is to goto your convergence menu and see if you can adjust red and blue. If not its has failed and needs to be fixed. You can call in a repair shop or you can get the parts and instructions from www.TvRepairKits.com and do the repair yourself. Its a fairly easy DIY fix.

The price sounds very reasonable, the fix can be done by someone who knows how to solder. It is fairly simple but should only be attempted by someone who can solder and knows what is dangerous such as the capacitors. The tv should be unplugged overnight to give time to discharge and to fix it, simply cut off the old soldered connections and solder the new pieces back on.

let me know if you have any further questions.

If you don't know how to solder, then having the repairman do it wouldn't be a bad idea, but you could also see what someone else may charge you.

good luck

This seems to be a problem in the Power Supply I would think. Either that or a fault that is overloading the PSU.
This means a trip to the repair shop.
Make sure ya get a firm "Quote" for tha fix before proceeding.

You most likely have defective capacitors in your electrical chassis. It's best to send the entire chassis back to the manufacturer for total rebuilding. The cost is about $350 + labor, unless you can remove the chassis yourself.
Good luck.

average price for the repair is around 400.00, sounds like there is an extra charge because of the distance involved.
