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.

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.

Why is picture blurry?

Sounds like a misalignment problem. the lens has a specific optical plane the DLP chip must be positioned at in order to provide the proper focus on the screen. Try repositioning the board or adjusting the lens to clear up the fuzzy picture. Regards.

Samsung 55" blurry picture and words are comes in perfect...whats wrong

Is it a 3D TV. Try changing the refresh rate in the Picture Menu 60HZ is normally the standard but try others. Or if you're TV has Auto Motion Plus options you try turn it on it can be found in your television's menu under Picture Options. The Auto Motion Plus menu contains several options, including On, Off, Clear, Smooth and Standard. If changing your Auto Motion Plus options doesn't correct blur, call Samsung.

Tv picture blurry, not clear

The LXI or Sears brand used philips TV's. These sets are known for bad coolant fluid. In between the picture tube and their lenses is a layer of clear coolant. Over time the coolant breaks down and causes the picture to become blurry. This can be a complicated repair involving removal of the picture tubes and lenses. Have a repair shop check it for you. Thanks for using fixya.
