I got an RCA 27" TV from someone who had moved it to another room but found it was "blurry" after moving it. I brought it home and tried all the suggestions I had found online but it was still blurry. I looked at the back of the TV and found 2 tiny knobs on the right (from the back view) which I began to fiddle with while looking at the screen. It fixed the blurriness immediately! I now have a beautiful screen.

Sounds like theres a leaky capacitor in the screen drive circuit. I have seen this problem also be a gassy crt but was able to clean off the grids of the CRT with a crt/rejuvinator. It happens because of low emmissions in the tube and when white is on thats a mix of all the colors, so the tube works harder. I bet when you whatch a movie and the scene changes suddenly to a white or brite scene the pic looks a little washed out. If this is not the case then I aggree with the Pravin and try it on another TV just to be sure .. This is not a repair for a consumer to do, though however it is only a three year old set you stated, so there should be life left in the tube, so im kinda thinking a capacitor is bad. Seek out a yechnician to check this out for you as a TV is not a place to see it you can fix it or to exoeeriment with. Good Luck

On my Toshiba 36A40 36" TV I have experienced the same thing. Nice picture, but the words are blurry to me, on the TV sub-titles and Satellite TV Guide. What I am about to tell you is no joke, I had my eyes checked and it turned out that I had a stigmatism and needed glasses. Since, I got them everything is much clearer, words and picture. You may want to check.

Ok..... let's take this a step at a time..... first, how are the words blurry? ..... are thet just generally blurry or are the colors (red green or blue) separated (like do the letters have a blue or red edge on them?) separated colors could be a convergence problem (must be fixed by a tech) are you running the video game into the tv through the antenna port rather than through a line level video port? this can make things (especially text) a bit blurry..... is everything blurry? this could be a focus voltage problem (must be fixed by a tech) also many video game machines produce blurry video to begin with, and i would do what the other techs said, and try it out on another tv to make sure, but try it out on a screen the same size (a bigger screen might look worse, a smaller screen might look better).....

SOURCE: dark picture (HELP)

Open up the back of the set but be very carefull. Notice a large black block with a large red wire that runs up to the picture tube. on one side of that large block where the thick red wire is comming out of are two controls, one should be marked focus or F and one should be marked screen or S. With the set operating normally and not touching anything else, slowly turn the control marked screen or S clockwish till the picture gets bright enough. If you go too bright the set will shut down or you see small thin white lines so back down on the control. then touch up the focus and your good to go. good Luck.

SOURCE: the words on the display

This can be corrected. You will need to use caution. Pull the back cover off. You will see a flyback transformer. You will note, that a suction cup is connected to the back of the picture tube. Follow the red lead and you will see the flyback transfomer. You will also see, two potentiometers on this transformer. The top knob will correct the focus you are talking about. The bottom knob will increase or decrease the voltage to the picture tube. Just work with the top pots. It will say focus on the knob. Turn back and forth as you watch the lettering of an informational program. This will be helpful. Thanks for asking and show all hands of support!

I have a toshiba tp50h50 rear projection tv and their is a blue shadow behind the words and makes the words a little blurry


Sounds like you need to do a color convergence. If you still have the owner's manual, it will give great detail on how to do this. The convergence menu is accessed from the video menu on the tv.
The tv has three color picture tubes, red, blue and green. The convergence alignment adjust each tube so that color from each tube overlaps each over to create a white image on the screen. Most tv's only allow you to adjust the blue and red colors.
Convergence should be performed each time the tv is moved and at least once annually.

Picture and color seem off. Words appear to be doubled abd blurry. We can't adjust the color because we cant read the words


If your TV looks 3D, warped, or distorted it likely has a convergenge problem.
If however it just looks dull, washed out, redish, greenish, or blueish or if it looks like objects on the screen have halos the fluid in the lens has soured.
You can search google for parts or you can get the parts with repair instructions from sites such as www.TvRepairKits.com

Some of your electronics parts were worn out. Like capacitors may have leaks that need to be replace
as use stated that the word focus were very clear it means that your tube is still okay. or you adjust the focus knob on the compartment. To tune in the 3 colors.

My tv screen on my nes is really blurry. it usually happens when it is white i play smb3 and the whole game is blurry which makes the game unplayable. could it be my av cables or 72 pin connector


it could be your TV, if your tv has video adjustment, just mess around with the options until the picture comes in clear, if that dosn't work, than it's probably the RF box on the motherboard (if you wanna know what that is search it up, but it's very technical), try getting a famiclone, new third-party NES's, i recommend the Retro Entertainment System, it works great and cheap on some sites. If that dosn't work, try a diffrent TV.

Toshiba theaterview 50in rear projection tv


Look at it on the QVC channel where you have boxes with straight lines. If any of the 3 colors are bowed and 1 inch off, then it needs parts inside. If the colors are straight and only 1/4 inch off, you can adjust it. Using the remote, in the menus find convergence to adjust. Your user manual will explain it. At WWW.Toshiba.com you can download the manual if you do not have it.

The words on the screen is doubled or trippled.


Go to the picture control menu and turn the color to minumum so that you are watching a black & white picture. Do this to determine if the color offset affects the overall screen or just the lower corner. If the center is off, go to the convergence adjustment menu and align the red and blue onto the green as described in the owners manual. Some models also allow you to align the outer edges as well. If the bottom is still bad you may have a problem in the convergence circuit. If the outlines are not seriously bowed or distorted a minor convergence toutchup by a qualified technician should correct the problem, otherwise parts are involved and the repair is considered major.

Samsung Projection HDTV BLURRY!


Each projection set has focus controls in back, usually they don't move or go out of focus unless someone moves it, but in your case if you open the back you will see a focus block with 6 knobs 3 are for screen,I would highly recommend that you don't move this. Look for the focus and you will have to set each with the one color. Cover the other two and adjust.
