Do you have a setting in the MENU where you can adjust the "Sharpness". If you have this setting, go up a few notches toward the "+" side and see if that helps. Also, there might also be a section in the MENU called "CONVERGENCE" and in this menu, select the "AUTOCONVERGENCE" option and it will reset the screen. You may or may not have this option in your menu, but if not, you should have something where you can adjust the focus. My TV is an RCA projection and I have the setting that I mentioned above, so your should be somewhat similar. As far as the cracking sound goes, some TV sets will do this with age when they are first turned on and are going through the whole "warm-up" process and that should not be a big concern. Hope this helps...

The picture is blurred, words are blurred . . overlaid with red. Tried Magic Focus after 20 minutes and it was no better


you need to change the convergence chips that are attached to a heat sink, they are the two black chips with a lot of legs on them.

You have probably reversed the inner screen (Fresnel Lens) when you reassymbled the screen. It will give you the same effect.

Sony Screen keeps Blinking


If the red LED blinks 5 times you have a AKB error. It is caused by the CRTs trying to balance the color, and failing. Its an annoying problem that happens when the CRTs get old. If its just beginning you can balance or slightly turn up the screen voltage to the CRTs to remove the problem, if its in the end stages, the CRTs may need to be replaced. This is however, very expensive. If you are daring and safe around high voltage, pop off the speaker grille, open the front panel up and find the focus block. Don't poke around! those big red wires have 30,000 volts running through them! The focus block is a black square box with six knobs on it. Three are labeled screen, three labeled focus. You will see each row labeled R, G, B for red green and blue. The writing is tiny. Mark all three screen knobs with a colored marker so you know where they started. Then turn each one up slightly. If you have a picture, put it to a black screen or blank input. Turn each knob up just unit you see the color over drive and turn it back down to black. You want to set it just below retrace to maintain black level but drive the CRT fully. Setting this is hard but may fix an AKB issue.
