I agree with the comments found online from justanswer:

If you think it is the convergence gone out and you wand to fix it DIY, here is a repair kit that cost under $100.

Also see:

I suggest you snoop around on the internet for others who have had these same symptoms and try to converge on the most likely cause as outlined in the justanswer page then you can repair it yourself.

But, as justanswer said, any of these repairs for your set will run $300 to $500 if you have a shop do the work.  I don't know what they charge for a check out to identify the cause and repair estimate.  Most charge something like $35 to $100 for a house call.

Let me know how it goes.
