Unless you are familiar with TV systems, this is best left to a professional. Rear projection systems typically use three separate image sources (red, green and blue) to display the picture. If any of these sources is misaligned, the convergence problem arises. It may be something as simple as a bump while transporting it or some loose screws but given the voltages in the back of TV systems, it is much safer to get a TV engineer to make the proper adjustments for you.

I am the right person to talk to.

If convergence problem total parts cost on EBAY would be under 25 dollars AND I HAVE START TO FINISH, STEP BY STEP INSTRUCTIONS FOR THE DO IT YOURSELF PERSON TO DO THIS REPAIR.

THE instructions tell everything you will need and the best way to get at the two STK-392-110 CHIPS THAT NEED TO BE REPLACED.

Repair involves getting at and replacing both chips, it does involve being able to solder--not hard on this set.

If you want the instructions here or provide a email I will if you rate this solution very helpful give them to you for free, they are based on my actual experience doing hundreds of these sets with this problem.

See attached photos of what the chips look like and what a typical convergence problem looks like.

The three blink is the error code for short protection. The blue 2.2 ohm resistor is tied to the convergence chips in near it: STK-392-110.

Both chips and the burnt or discolored resistor will have to be replaced.

If you are a do it yourself person I have start to finish step by step instructions for this repair in this set.

They tell you everything you will need (Parts cost on EBAY will be under 30 dollars) and how to do the repair from beginning to end.

let me know if you think you can do it and I can post the instructions here for you.
