Replace Both of your STK ICs they are your convergence ics they are big black ICs will have Part# on them for example STK392-110, if they are 110s use 180s, if 020s use 040s other wise replace with exact same number. To get Parts call Electronix 1-800-223-3205

You have a problem with the STK convergence modules. They're on the
center circuit board attached to an aluminum heat sink that's about 8"
long and 6" tall. You may be able to recreate the problem (hour glass
effect) by gently moving the heat sink (which the modules are connected
to). This gives the hour glass effect on the picture and the advanced
convergence screen. This is an indication that the modules pins aren't
solidly connected (meaning soldered) properly. Remove the circuit board
and clean the old solder off & resolder the modules pins to the
circuit board reconnected the board and then retest by again pushing on
the heat sink. The "factory" job was good enough for 3-4 years
but the heat (and these modules do create a lot of heat) and stress
created from repeated use eventually takes it's toll, weakens the pin
connections and our problem occurs. take the appropriate cautions
working around the high voltage of the set & use a non-conducting
piece of wood to push the heat sink when doing tests.
If soldering doesn't help, then the modules have died and need replacing. Don't buy the $10 cheap ones. Most of them have an upgraded version that is stronger. Also look for any burned resistors in the vicinity of the modules.
Best of luck, hope ya fix it.

it sounds like your blue convergence ic is getting weak you need to replace the ic's STK392-110 and you should replace both because when 1 is bad the other will go real soon. They are inexspensive at the sight I posted and you will also get free tech online support if you purchase them there.

I have a yellow swoosh (shape of the nike swoosh) on the top of my screen with a blue 2" inch line under it. I also have a blue spot on the bottom left of my screen. I hit the Magic Focus to see if that would help and it did nothing. Help!
