    Can't say for sure about that model. Mine is last year's, and it's just a 42". Here's how you do it on my set:
    NOTE: DO ALL OF THIS AT YOUR OWN RISK. I'M NO SERVICE TECH, AND YOU HAVE A DIFFERENT SET.
    Turn the set on.
    Press and release MUTE on the remote.
    Press and release MUTE again.
    Press and hold MUTE on the remote, and press the MENU button on the front of the TV. Release both.
    An "S" should appear on the screen, indicating that you are in service mode.
    Press "7" on the remote to get the Convergence Grid on screen.
    You should see a flashing square cursor that is either red, green or blue. The cursor color represents which color you'll be working with. Pressing "3" cycles through the colors.
    Press "5" to make the cursor stop flashing.
    Pressing "2" moves the line up; "8" is down; "4" is left; "6" is right.
    Set the green first, for the best geometry. Then set red and blue to match the green.
    When you're done, press "7" to memorize the convergence.
    You'll be prompted to press "Touch Focus." Do that.
    Turn the set off and then on again to exit service mode.
    Good luck, and remember that warning: Mess with service mode at your own risk!
