There should not be a need to replace the chip if the fuse below the convergence chip is blown. Check to see if there is a short in the convergence output (after the fuse). If nothing is seen then replace the fuse and see if it works.

Here are some of the most common symptoms and example photos of a convergence problem
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.

This is a convergence problem that could be as simple as poor solder connections at the convergence ICs. If you can solder and are comfortable working inside the set where there are potentially dangerous high voltages even when unplugged, you can fix this yourself. Let me know if you wish to attempt the repair and I'll provide more details.,
