Question about RCA HD56W58 56" TV

1 Answer

Text is out of focus

My RCA 56" HDTV is about one year old. All the text that shows up on the screen is out of focus or blurry. It was fine the night before. I went in and reset the auto convegance, and everything matches up fine. It's not my cable box, because I disconnected it and the channel numbers and menu text is still hard to read.

I have a sony trinitron 36in tv, the screen works fine, colours are all great, no flickering or random shapes at all, its just a little blurry around edges, especially small text, its very blurry and...

it is very easy you just need a very small straight edge screwdriver

you should try to adjust sharpness setting with on screen adjustment first

if tv is too old tube might be going "soft" and sharp focus might not be able to be fully achieved anymore

good luck

I have had this problem before and restarting the reciever fixed it. Just push the red button under the front panel of your reciever, or unplug the reciever for a minute or so.

Out of focus

How old is the set? If picture is really very blurry, Try adjusting 'focus'. You can find this conttrol generally at the rear of the set. Otherwise,. if you know solid state electronics, Check the Focus control on the FBT. It is also possible that the CTR Base is faulty. Replacing this helps.

Did you adjust the two controls on the new flyback? The top one is almost always the focus control and the bottom is the G2/screen control (brightness) If you adjust the G2 do it until the picture looks normal, too high and you will get retrace lines through the picture.
