Question about Televison & Video
I tried rubbing it all over with a small magnet it looks like the the letters and numbers got a little better but the picture is worse?
Do not use magnet on or near this set---
This set is known for convergence problems where picture looks 3 d etc and this is caused by bad connections under and around the high voltage transformer in many cases.
First thing to do is look in menu to see if "Convergence" option is still there or missing----three small parts available as a kit exist to correct that if the option is missing (all are at same place around the high voltage transformer).
Set would have to be taken apart if you are able to check things there---if not most techs familiar with this set can deal with this in the home.
the connections and parts are all right where the high voltage transformer (called a flyback) is located.

Go to menu then setup look for convergence if not on menu you have a blowed fuse FL231 will be next to FBT flyback transfomer on right side there is 3 in a roll small brown looking caps but they are fuses it will be the one in the middle.You can take a pair of plyers to pull off top they are all removeable and just snap back on.

Testimonial: "What a great site this is to get answers to questions very quickly. Thanks!!!"
If the flash focus isn't doing anything you have bad convergence IC chips. This is a common problem with rear projection sets. The chips wear out from heat. You need new ones and they need to be replaced in pairs. The parts are not very expensive, the last set I did cost $38 for the pair on a Sony KP-57WS510. The repair requires some very tedious desoldering and soldering in the new ICs. If you have some experience with electronics and soldering it is not very hard. A shop will charge $300 and up for this repair. If you would like more details on this post a comment back here.
