On my Panasonic big screen, when I turned it on, I noticed that my blue is a couple of inches to the left of my other colors and there is a blue line on the right side of the screen about two inches from the side.
I tried adjusting the comvergence but it wont go any further to the right.

Re: Blue is just not right
Typical convergence problem. Your going to have to have the two convergence IC's replaced at one time but if you have no soldering skills or know about the safety facts with solid state TV repair, you really should call out a trained service person to assist this repair for you.

Panasonic didn't release a 61" LC13, are you sure that you dont have a PT-61LCX65, 35 or 15. If your model ends with a 5, call 1-800-211-PANA (7262) to schedule service, they have a fix fuzzy the fuzzy colored spots they are covering under warranty.
The Blue SCREEN setting is too high. These adjustments are located inside the TV behind the front panel. There are two screws behind covers and then a wooden panel to remove to access the adjustments. The leftmost set are for BLUE, the middle are GREEN, and the right are RED. The top row are FOCUS and the bottom are SCREEN. Focus will focus/unfocus the tube and Screen will adjust the power of that tube (there are 3 tubes, one for each color). If Screen is adjusted too high, horizontal lines will appear (my TV had red lines, but I played around with the knobs and saw that it could happen on any of the colors). Additionally, if SCREEN is set even higher than that, the tube could go so high that it turns the whole screen that color (in your case, blue). If this happens the TV will shut down, probably due to either overheating or overvolting. To fix this issue, turn the appropriate SCREEN dial down until the lines go away. In your case, you want to turn the lower left dial down. Don't turn it too far down, if you turn it more than necessary the TV can give you an AKB error (noted by the STANDBY light flashing a sequence of 5 blinks).
This can be repaired by a Degaussing coil from most TV repair places. If you haven't already you should shut down the TV and wait till it cools maybe 1 hour or so and then when you turn it on there should be a degaussing circut that might clear this up for you build into the set. Its not that strong a signal and usually takes care of minor discolorations. If it doesn't have that then a shop can come and take care of it pretty fast usually.
your color calibration may be off. see if you can set the red green and blue settings all to "0" and see if that works. may want to refer to your manual and see how you can do that and also see if there is a auto calibration
From what you say it sounds like the Convergence IC's have failed. Part number 267P150010, STK392-570, replace both IC's. They are on the middle board secured to a large heat sink. Good Luck, big IRISH.
your convergence IVs need to be replaced. Its an easy repair if you can solder. you can get the two ICs you need at the following link. they also provide free installation instructions and free on line tech support while youre doing the repair. You need two ICs they are numbers STK392-110. Let me know if I can be of further assistance. I am one of servicemanuals support techs and board rebuilder. http://servicemanuals.vstore.ca/
