Toshiba 42H83- I need some help tackling convergence in the service menu

    My TV is a Toshiba 42H83 (I hope this is the right place to post this in, I don't see an RPTV-dedicated section). Basically, I just want to manually adjust the 56 point convergence, nothing more. The 9 point just won't cut it, for obvious reasons. I'm very happy with my picture, but I know it can be better. I want to make it as good as possible without resorting to an actual ISF calibration or any sort of physical surgery.

    I have run across some fairly detailed explanations of service mode procedures, like this thread for example...


    ...but something always throws me off. In this case, I don't know if the procedure is the same for my model.

    Anybody here have experience with this model, or Toshiba RPTVs in general (I think they all follow a sort of standard regarding this issue, right? All the remotes look similar)? Are there any links to procedures specific to Toshiba RPTVs like this? On these boards or elsewhere. I want to know what to expect when I get in there, and what I should watch out for. I'm quite paranoid about doing this, but I'm going to bite the bullet, ha.
