Anyone with Projection TV repair knowledge?

we are having a strange red, 3d, thing going on with part of our tv and debating whether or not to fix it or just set it out on the curb. its a 60 inch (room divider) phllips. other than the one part of the screen the picture is perfect.

it sounds like your convergance is off/out of whack.. you might be able to adjust it yourself in the settings of the TV.. We had the same problem (blue instead of red).. adjusting it took care of it for a few years (the TV is about 7 years old) but now when we do the convergance adjustment it does not 'stick' - based on what i've read this means there is a problem with the convergance circuit/chip..
Probably only a few hundred $$ to have someone come out and fix it.. OR time for a new TV ...

we tried the convergance. no luck. and there is like a wave at the bottom of the screen. it throws off just that part of the picture only when there is red involved. maybe thats still a convergance chip problem though?....

Thanks for your help!

I've got an older Sony with some similar issues. It started on the bottom right corner but seems to be spreading. I decided that the TV has lived its life and when/if I move I'm buying myself a new HDTV. I paid to have it fixed in the past for other issues but won't be doing it for this one.

UPDATE

so we have tried the manual convergence with the red and it wont move. (single and multi point) blue works fine. its really wierd. dont know if anyone has anymore advice and if this makes a difference but i think its just time to bury this tv. i hate to see it go. it fits perfect in our theater room.
