The convergence is off and when I go to crrect it manually, it won't work. The green + is not cnetered (at the 5 position) and I cannot get blue or red to meet with green. Others (1,3,4,6,7 and 9) are aligned okay. Any advice? Is it worth the maintenace of $400+ or get a new TV???

Convergence ICs and resistors need replacement. Very common issue. The AV48WP74 -AV65WP74 convergence repair kit from www.tvrepairworld.com has the 2 ICs and associated resistors plus the CD with repair instructions.
Did you lock the adjustment into the TV's memory? This step is the most often missed. Please follow the directions on the Users manual or on the service manual on how to set your memory to hold the configuration.
Find the menu item on setting the convergence adjustment into memory (the menu should have an informational screen on this topic)
There might be some features that the universal remotes aren't able to do. To perform the convergence alignment you should have the original remote.
Do you have the user manual or service manual?
The service manual will explain this process better.
The convergence circuit needs repaired. I did the same job yesterday on this model. I not only replaced the convergence ICs, but, I had to replace a couple of resistors and a coil. The convergence alignment was minor after that.
