How to get in convergence set up mode
OTHER THAN TRYING IT IN THE CUSTOMER MENU there is the tech menu.
With the set off on the original Sony remote control press:
Display, 5, Vol up and power.
The set should come on with a lot of words and numbers on screen.
With 1 OR 4 you navigate until you see PJE on the screen.
9, and then 6 on the remote will bring up the convergence grid. You will see a grid with a blinking colored cursor--if it is green do nothing--3 will allow you to change to red or blue or green. IT IS A GOOD IDEA TO CHANGE THE SET TO A UNUSED VIDEO INPUT TO MAKE IT EASY TO SEE WHAT YOU ARE DOING.
Select red with the three button and navigate with the 1 or 4 buttons--enter button will allow you to adjust. enter again will allow you to navigate with the 1 or 4 buttons-- you want to get to the middle of the screen and then with 1 or 4 buttons navigate from the center around the screen.
You will find 1 moves adjustment in one direction and 4 in another. Go all around and adjust red first. Then repeat with blue.
YOU ACTUALLY ADJUST USING THE CURSOR BUTTONS--WHEEL NEAR THE MIDDLE OF THE REMOTE--YOU WILL SEE THE CHANGES AS YOU DO THIS.
When you are done hit Muting and then enter to save adjustments.
NOTE: some of these sets require the convergence be adjusted in the 4X3 which will also adjust in the FULL--if the set has the ZOOM AND WIDE zoom you will have to repeat the adjustment again in one of those modes to adjust Zoom and Wide Zoom.
Also if you have HD connection you may have to adjust it there also--many of these sets require it to be adjusted 3 times in the three modes.
IF convergence will not adjust in any one of the picture modes you have a convergence circuit problem and need to replace the convergence chips etc.
When you are done be sure to hit Muting and then Enter to save adjustments you have made. The word Write will appear on screen in green when you press muting and then in green when you press enter--it means you have saved the adjustments.
NEVER TRY TO ADJUST GREEN!
