    I HAD the same problem, then I replaced the coolant just like the manual said, but now the screen is clear but it's also just black with a red, blue, and green stripe across it. No picture, no sound, can't access menu, etc.

    Did I do something wrong?

Projection TV tubes have a liquid coolant that is used to keep them from overheating. After many years the coolant in the blue and green tubes will become  cloudy and cause the screen to look dull, red/orange, etc. You may even see halos around images. 

What you will need to do is replace the coolant and clean the crt. You can get a repair kit from www.TvRepairKits.com that includes replacement coolant, photos. instructions, etc.

Fuzzy picturethe


If the colors appear to be aligned and the only isue is focus, than you can adjust the focus on the flyback transformer. Carefully remove the rear cover and locate the flyback transformer (part with large red wire coming out the top). There should be 2 controls/adjustment points on it. One is for screen and the other for focus. Try adjusting the focus using a mirror to see the front of the set. You should adjust the control back and forth a ferw times to "loosen" it up a bit before settling down to the focus point.

Update this with the results.

Fuzzy Picture


Fuzzy is a funny word. I never use it to describe a picture problem. That because fuzzy can go too many different ways. There is snowy fuzzy, blurry fuzzy, grainy fuzzy, and demodulated fuzzy. If the set goes out of focus intermittently that has something to do with the focus ciruitry. If it goes grainy that is a front end problem, usually tuner related. The other types of fuzzy are generally associated with problems in video processing some where. So, which is it?

Oh, and BTW that unit has three small picture tubes in it, one red, one blue, and one green. It doesn't have a 'bulb'.

Blurry picture


If you know where the fly back is, ok open the casing and see at the back of the fly back, there are two knobs, one for the focus and the other is for the brightness. Try twist both and see which one is for the focus. Ok, from the focus knob try adjusting until the fuzzy sight disappears. Try this, I usually do it to screens with blurry appearances.

BLURRY OR FUZZY LENS


Perhaps you have had the camera in a very humid environment and now there is condensation inside? Perhaps try putting it somewhere warm and dry (not hot) for several days. Switch it on and off (and zoom in and out a bit) a few times during this period to change the air inside the lens. This will help expel the moisture.

I assume that it isn't just finger marks on the front of the lense? If it is, you can use a cleaning cloth (for eye glasses or from a camera shop) to clean it.

Color not correct picture fuzzy


I have spoken with support they told me a problem like this is usually a "color wheel". You are looking at $500 plus for repairs. Good Luck!
