    Today I measured where the verticle centerline of the convergence grid is and found it was shifted 7-8mm to the right. The dimensions of the screen are 1261mm x 709mm so the verticle centerline should be at 630.5, but it was only 623mm from the right side.

    I have tried WID and HPOS in the service menu but they do not move the grid. Does anyone know how to do it?

    I forget to list VCEN in my post. VCEN did not change the position of the convergence grid either.

    I guess u have tried everything because that's about it, VCEN, VPOS, WID and HPOS. Sorry if I wasn't any help. But I know that I have moved the whole grid thing using these parameters when I did the overlay.

    There is a parameter to move the whole grid horizontally in the designer menu, but the designer menu is no longer available to the public.

    But you still have 2 options:

    1) use the centering magnets on the yokes

    2) just pull all the grid lines to the left in the service convergence.

    I wasnt thinking straight on this one. I went ahead and shifted all the convergence lines left about 1/2 inch to get it lined up correctly. For now I just measured and used strings to get it close. Thanks for the help.
