    Thank you for your quick, easily understood response. I'll get my manual out and see if we can figure out how to adjust the conversion. The more I look at this thing, the more I think it is more than just the blue that is out of synch. There are times when there are 3 images, one blue, one yellow. and one that is darkly colored.
    Your advice about using a small TV repair shop is also much appreciated.
    Have a great day!

Hi,

From the information you have provided the problem is with the convergence. If you have gone into the menu and tried adjusting the conversion after the TV has been on for an hour or more and the focus did not correct the problem the convergence ICs have failed and will need to be replaced along with a few defective resistors. If all the colors are incorrect a open fuse in the voltage supply to the amplifiers is possible. Sony, sets have pico-fuses. These will resemble resistors but are likely orange or green, with no color stripes. A TV repair company will normally charge about $350 for this repair if the ICs are the problem, less for the fuses. Convergence failure is a very common problem with this TV set. There could be other parts that are not within factory specs. The only way to be positive of the problem is to have the circuitry diagnosed by someone with the proper TV test equipment to determine what parts that are no longer within specs. A small TV repair shop will many times be less expensive than a large repair facility.

Let me know,if needed further assistance.

Like the blue color is gone and see a double image now


You should have a TV repairman look at your set to see if you have a bad tube in the set, It might just be a convergence ishue, if thats the case it might be worth fixing.

Double image/ out of focus with green and blue seperation


Your tv is crt-based and is out of convergence. In other words, the settings for keeping the Red, Green and Blue images aligned have drifted and must be reset. This is common with CRT projectors and CRT rear projection tvs.

Refer to your owners manual for instructions on re-aligning it.
