Usually on your model it might be best to replace the entire deflection board as your model has two STK394-250 ICs and then 12 3.9 ohm fusible resistors that will need to be checked and possibly replaced. If you need further assistance let me know I can assist with getting quality parts and circuit boards.

the convergance amps have failed you need to have them replaced there are 2 of them and some resistors may be affected. the cost of this repair can reach $350.00 depending on the tech you get. this is the most common failure in rear projection TVs. the convergance amps work very hard and are bound to fail. they also have very large heat sinks to keep them cool. heat is the biggest enemy of transistorized ICs.
