The focus controls on this set are in the front behind the bezel.
I'm not sure, but, I think on this age of Samsung, the screws to the front bezel are on the back side of the set. After removing the screws from the back, the front bezel snaps off and the door behind the bezel need to be removed. Watch the wires connected to the bezel, they need to be attached in order to turn on the set.
The focus controls are on a black control block (there are three of them, one for each color). Adjust each color for sharpest picture. I use words on the screen for alignment.
Each CRT board has a screen control (Adjust each slowly until retrace lines appear on the screen and then back off until they disappear). You may turn off the color and make sure that the picture is black and white. If it is not, then, which ever color is dominant, back it off a bit with that screen control.
Facing the set, Red is left, Green is middle and Blue is on the right.
Use only one hand inside an operating television. Do not touch the board, just the controls.
This concludes television alignment 101.
Any questions respond to this post and I'll reply.

SCREEN HAS GONE BRIGHT


Have you tried going into the display settings and setting it there? Maybe try using the keyboard commands to turn it down.

My laptop display very dim


If your HP laptop has a dull screen, or if the screen is too bright to make out anything that's displayed, you may need to adjust the brightness to get your screen back the way you like it. You don't want to strain your eyes to see your screen, and the fix is really simple. It's about as easy as adjusting the brightness on a TV. You'll have your brightness set the way you want it in a few seconds.

1. Right-click on an empty space on the desktop and a drop-down menu will appear.
2. Click on "Properties." If the HP laptop uses Windows Vista, you'll click on "Personalize."
3. On the "Personalize appearance and sounds" screen, click on "Window Color and Appearance."
4. Click on the arrow beside "Show color mixer."
5. Use your mouse pointer to move the tab on the "Brightness" scale to the left or the right to adjust the brightness and click on "OK" when you're content with the color.

I hope you find it very helpful. Thank you for using fixya.

Best regards.

Lock on monitor adjustments don't know how to turn off the lock so we can adjust brightness and color


Follow these instructions :
  1. Turn on your Samsung monitor (if it isn't already.)

  2. Press the "AUTO" button on your Samsung monitor. This will run the automatic configuration utility. This will look at your current computer settings and adjust your monitor to best match those. This will take a few seconds. If this has calibrated the monitor to meet your needs, you are finished with the process. If it hasn't, continue to Step 3.
  3. Press the "Menu" button on your Samsung computer monitor.
  4. Use the arrows and the "Enter" button on the monitor to highlight and select various settings categories.
  5. Use the "Brightness" menu on your Samsung monitor to adjust how bright or dark you want the image.
  6. Use the "Colors" menu to adjust how prominent certain colors are displayed on your Samsung monitor.
  7. Use the "Contrast" menu to adjust the level of black on your Samsung monitor.
  8. Select "Save and Exit" to save your changes and exit the Samsung monitor's on Screen menu.

Screen is too bright. How do we turn down the brightness?


There should be a menu button on the monitor it self, which will give a list of options, one of which should be brightness.

Also, windows 7 has a built in brightness setting -- search for calibrate display color

I cant get the color right. its to red??? any help? i did notice with the back cover off, there are 6 adjustment screws


yes! those are the screen and focus adjustments. 3 for screen, 3 for focus. try this. go in menu....turn down color, brightness, contrast all they way down. you should then have no picture, but in your case a little red. then go to back of tv and turn those 3 screen adjustments all the way down. slowly turn the screens back up until you get barely a picture. because remember, your brightness and contrast is all the way down. the picture should be dim but seeable and with red, green, blue adjustments, make it a black and white picture. when balanced..... turn up color , brightness, contrast in menu. enjoy!

The color keeps getting really bright and keeps going between very red or green?


It is actually a really simple problem. your blue picture tube is getting ready to go out. It is getting really bright because the filiment in the tube is starting to short out then after it shorts the colors will only be red and green. also you may notice that a section of the screen may look blurry. also a symptom of a dying tube. never fear though. the tubes can usually be found on ebay.
