Samsung Projection HDTV BLURRY!

The picture is just not clear at all. The picture is blurry but any words, ticker tape, etc that is on the TV is unreadable blurry. I have tried adjusting the convergence, I bought a brand new digital antenna, didn't help. Please help if you know what to do.

Re: Samsung Projection HDTV BLURRY!

Each projection set has focus controls in back, usually they don't move or go out of focus unless someone moves it, but in your case if you open the back you will see a focus block with 6 knobs 3 are for screen,I would highly recommend that you don't move this. Look for the focus and you will have to set each with the one color. Cover the other two and adjust.

Gray picture

This sounds like you have the contrast setting too high, go to your menu and find the contrast settings, and adjust to your requirement. As for the words being blurry, this could be because your tv is HD ready, and unless you view a High Definition channel then the picture will be a liitle blurred.
Hope this is of some help?

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.

Blurry tv

Sounds like theres a leaky capacitor in the screen drive circuit. I have seen this problem also be a gassy crt but was able to clean off the grids of the CRT with a crt/rejuvinator. It happens because of low emmissions in the tube and when white is on thats a mix of all the colors, so the tube works harder. I bet when you whatch a movie and the scene changes suddenly to a white or brite scene the pic looks a little washed out. If this is not the case then I aggree with the Pravin and try it on another TV just to be sure .. This is not a repair for a consumer to do, though however it is only a three year old set you stated, so there should be life left in the tube, so im kinda thinking a capacitor is bad. Seek out a yechnician to check this out for you as a TV is not a place to see it you can fix it or to exoeeriment with. Good Luck
