Here is a quick test....
Using your original remote go-to the tv
settings then goto the convergence section.
Try to adjust the red and then the blue convergence.
You should be able to move them up, down, left, and right.
If you can't move them in all directions your convergence chips are bad and should be replaced. This is a common problem. SOLUTION

in a pro. If you want to do the repair yourself check the site www.TvRepairKits.com
