Hello: Seems your convergence IC's have failed. These are two large IC on the Main Powersupply board. Have both replaced as a preventive measure.
If you are good at unsoldering and soldering componet IC's then yes you can do this yourself.
The IC are STK-392-110 but use 120's instead.

Sony KP-61XBR200 Convergence problem

STK392-020 ICs are the convergence ICs for your model, you may also want to check the 3.5 amp pico fuses and the 4.7 ohm 1/2 watt resistors as well.

Replaced two IC's and still the same problem????

U say the set is bowed in from top, could this be a foldover? If so then the ic problem may not help. Check to see if any fluid leakage has dropped on your deflection board. If so then you probably will need to clean and replace some capacitors. This is kind of common with the philips projo's. Look around crt for fluid leakage and on board.

Convergence problems with model#9P6040C101!

They are large black colored IC's with the markings of STK392-xxx (xxx could be 110,120,150) There could be open resistors as well and you have to make sure if you do replace the IC's that you apply heat sink compond to the back of them otherwise they will prematurely fail.
