The picture tube is going bad,not worth repairing,better invest in a new set. The rating response is important to the person helping you.

I have a Mitusbishi CS-40503 tv that is approximately 17 years old. When I turn it on, the entire picture is blurry (like your glasses are off) and then after about 7 minutes, the picture is crisp and...

Hi sletwin,
This symptom indicated of faulty CRT socket (picture tube socket). A few days or weeks time the symptom will remain and will not back to clear picture. Below is the sample picture of the socket where is connected to the picture tube.

You may replace it yourself if you have a little knowledge in soldering and disoldering technique. There are two wire soldered in this socket from the flyback, one is the screen and the other is the focus.
Try to buy from your local electronics supply, bring the actual sample because many types are available at the market.
Let me know if you need further assistance.
Hope I helped you.
Have a nice day!
Thanks for using Fixya.

Screen is too dark

with a flashlight at the back of the set often times there is an adjustment you can make WITHOUT having to open the set!!!

look for a little hole in the back of the plastic cabinet labeled SCREEN then with a flat screwdriver holding only the plastic handle, insert it into the hole and SLOWLY rotate until the screen brightens up until it is watchable.

This is compensating for age in the picture tube. you may get a few day or a few more years! of a much better picture.

If you start seeing some thin lines on the screen then back off you have gone too far. Do this adjustment with the brightness and contrast controls on the menu turned up all the way.

it is also safe to play with the focus adjustment right next to the screen if thing seem a little blurry. you will need two people one to watch from a distance for best picture.

Blurry Picture

I too had the same problem where my HT30744 TV would lose its color or picture would get blurry. My mom's HT32744 would have the same problem too. They both are refurbished models bought at Value City Dept store. If I gave the cabinet a good hit it would mostly fix the color, but it could also make the picture go fuzzy too, a clear sign of just a loose connection somewhere.

So after my wife telling me she was sick of this almost 2 year problem and she was going to buy a new TV on the weekend, I figured I had nothing to lose. So I took the rear cabinet off, unseated the card mounted on the picture tube, applied a little dielectric grease on the connector on the card and reseated the card, removed, re-greased and reattached the card. I have had no problem with either my or mom's which I did the same to since! This is an easy fix that anyone can do. The hardest part is moving the TV and reassembling the rear cabinet. Do not pull the cabinet back out more than you have to, to ease the reassembly of it.

JVC AV-32F704 32" TV Picture is blurry - cannot read any writing on the screen

You didn't mention if you saw fine white diagonal lines running through the screen from top to bottom. If so, you likely have a shorted Picture Tube which is not usually fixable. If there are no lines seen running through the screen, then it is possible the High voltage transformer which also has a screen voltage and focus control built in that could be bad. I would expect the cost of that part to be about $100, so the repair cost total could approach that of a new set I would guess.

Screen goes from blurry to clear to blurry

The first thing to check is for loose conections,the problem is related to the high voltage but it can start in the main board with one component loose,when the high voltage is developed it goes to what is call the distributor block,a lot of sets have the focus and screen controls coming out of this block for each picture tube,this block might be bad but before we go to him we need to check everything is solid in the main board.If you are familiar with electronics you can remove the back cover and tap the chassis with a wooden or rubber handle to see if the set reacts,if it does you need to be atentive what area makes it react and flip the board to do some resoldering,If you are not too familiar with tv service you need the assistance from a servicer.Let Us know how it goes or if you need more information.
