Anybody ever done it by themselves on a 960?

How do you do it?
I know you have to go into the service menu.
How? And how do you change the focus and convergence values?
I got focus issues on the sides. I got convergence and some overscan issues, too.

I'd like to solve it without spending ~$300. But if I have to spend that I will.

Unless you are totally comfortable going in the service menu you are best to get a professional to adjust and calibrate it.
You can go here and find techs/calibrators who could probably answer your specific questions more closely.

You could get the service manual for your display and see what's involved in DIY. But some may well require equipment you do not have. If you need to get inside the display while it's operational, there are other obvious lethal hazards if it is necessary to work around the CRT to make some adjustments.

A word to the wise - stay out of the service menu!

You have neither the service manual, the special analyzer tools nor the experience to make adjustments within the service menu.

You void your warranty by entering the service manual.

There is no default setting

You can pretty much guarantee you will only make the picture worse than what you started with.

Use a tune up disc like DVE, Aria or THX to set the user adjustments . . . or pay someone to do a professional calibration.
