One day, for no apparent reason, my green was way out of convergence. After much research I learned how to get into service mode. Red and blue are perfect, but the green is way off mostly on the bottom half of the screen. When i try to adjust the green, it will go so far and then seem's to pop way out of alignment. It then adjusts rapidly back down but seems to stop after going so far. Any suggestions?

Re: green out of convergence
The green convergence IC is defective. this is not a job for the consumer to do as it requires the experience of soldering and unsoldering and the know how and the safty nissues concerning the HI voltage inside these sets. Please consult a pro to assit you in this matter. Good Luck

If you are in the Calgary area, call me. More reasonable rates.
You need a remote that can produce the "DISPLAY" button on the Sony remote in order to get in service mode....(you could also carefully move the centering rings on the red CRT to line it up with the green CRT)
