Hi There shouldnt be much in the focus system to go wrong as really there is nly the tube base and the flyback transformer. The usual for a TV is the tube faulty so its beyond repair. You could try the focus control, this will be on the flyback transformer. Back off TV, look for a heavy lead going to the dome of the tube at centre top and with eyes ONLY follow that back to the flyback transformer. On the side of that transformer is 2 screws, one near the top is the focus control. You will need a screwdriver to turn it and it usually has a seal to be broken. That will turn from say 8 o clock to 4 o clock no more, turn it up clockwise, try both ways. if it almost fixes but not quite it would be the tube. good luck

Zenith tv is blurry


There are two adjustments on your flyback. If there is not an access in the back of the set to turn the adjustments then you need to take the back off of the tv. One adjustment is for brightness and the other is your focus. Just slowy turn the adjustment right or left until the picture gets clearer and your done.

Tv is alittle blurry, its hard to read words


when its hard to read words its usually the sharpness which make the t.v.'s look either blurry or sharp or right in between. you can fix this by adjusting it thru your tv's menu either on the tv or your remote, look under the picture tab in the menu and there should be a sharpness adjuster there. adjust as needed

Recently replaced blown lamp for 50HM67 50 inch tv. Now have picture but clarity is off. Picture / screen words are very blurry. Toshiba referred a local repair company who mentioned that the problem...


If the picture was good before the lamp blew, there might be dust/splatter on the window in front of the lamp. Pull out the lamp assembly and look at the small square glass window that the light shines into. It should be clear and clean. If it is not, clean it gently with isoprophonol alcohol or screen cleaner.
By the way, there is no such thing as convergence adjustment on DLP TVs.

Blurry tv


there is a focus control in the front of the set behind the front grill there is a door in the middle attached by screws take this off and it should be right behind it. There are six controls on a little box one row says focus and the other says screen don't adjust the screen controls. In some cases these are in the back of the set.

Blurry tv screen


If you are comfortable on doing adjustment with working TV then take off back cover of TV and check flyback transformer, there you would see 2 control knobs, upper knob if to adjust focus. rotate it CW or CCW to obtain maximum focus on TV screen.
Put back cover and enjoy.

Gray picture


This sounds like you have the contrast setting too high, go to your menu and find the contrast settings, and adjust to your requirement. As for the words being blurry, this could be because your tv is HD ready, and unless you view a High Definition channel then the picture will be a liitle blurred.
Hope this is of some help?

you can try to clean the mirror and lenses. or try to adjust the focus for each CRT(picture tube). also could be a convergence alignment issue. check the main menu for convergence alignment feature.
