Red and blue shadows appeared tonight on screen. Flash Focus and Convergence controls don't fix it.


Yes this is a failure of the convergence ic's it is a common sony big screen failure. I have written an article on how to fix this but it is involved and somewhat complex repair. A repair shop will typically charge around 300 for this repair. Here is my article:

Convergence problem


the boards (one for each of 3 colors) are about $130ea if purchased new.
a good TV repair tech can diagnose the board that is faulty and only replace the failed part(s).
Labor rates are different in every part of the country.
$45/hr here in Michigan.
To disassemble, troubleshoot, repair, and re-assemble is approximately 3 hours work.
Depending on the problem found - you may squeak out with a bill under $300 (worst case).
Not much more - and you can have a HD LCD 49".
Your call :D
