Firstly, to get a "Shop" standard picture, you need to have a true HD feed. Usually a demo disc filmed in HD at 1080p, played on a true HD system at 1080p into your TV. Most broadcast feeds at present are on 720p.

However, you can improve the picture significantly just by changing a few settings on the TV:

Contrast: Change to about 65% of maximum. Too much
contrast gives a blurry / grainy image.
Sharpness: Change to about 20% of maximum

Also turn of any dynamic or digital contrast settings on the TV (if it has them)

My TV has gradualy developed a blurred picture over the last month and now is unwatchable, is it worth fixing. It is 8 years old


guessing this is a rear projection tv. You did not provide a model number. Check the CRT fluid to be sure it is clear and not cloudy. Since you mentioned the problem was gradual over time, I'm guessing it is the fluid. This would be more obvious if you were seeing like a frosted look to the picture or dark areas and bright areas, which are caused as the fluid clouds up.

Your alternative is to try adjusting the focus of each bulb on the focus block of the tv. I think with an older Philips the focus block is in the back of the tv.

The problem is its having difficulty in focusing on objects.If your going to take a picture its so blurred and hazy but if you are gonna see the stored pictures its so clear.


Blurry picture could be caused by insufficient lighting or constant camera vibration. Try increasing the ISO to max and fixing the camera so it doesn't move. If the picture itself is focused, than maybe you have a problem with the cameras' screen. If the picture is still not focused (nor camera screen or stored one) than maybe you have to clean the lens. Use a dry smooth cloth. If that doesn't work, than maybe you have a sensor problem. For that you'll have to contact the company for warranty.

Lines on the screen


Hello
If the lines are thin and spreaded allover the screen from top to bottom, and are equally spaced around one inch of so apart, it will be a screen voltage rise problem. You just decrese both brightness, contrast and colour contols of your TV to zero position, and look into, where there is lines are visible on the screen or not. You should notice this in a drak room, so as to see is well, or close all the doors and windows to make the circumstance to a little bit dark.
If you can see these lines still, it is clear evidence of the above said fault. To rectify this fault you should open your TV. Open the back cover of the TV, and you will see a Line Output Transformer. It is otherwse known as LOT. It can be recoganiized easely as it its size. Normally it will look black in colour and a thick wire from it goes the picture tube's final anode, and look like it is stcked to it with the help of a rubber ******. Other two wires from it goes to the picture tube base board. These two wires are, one for focus and the other for screen.
There will be two controls on the lot, which can be varied, and seem to be integrated with LOT. Among, upper one is for focus adjustment, and lower one is for screen adjustment. Both will be marked as "Screen" and "Focus". You just find out the screen control. With the healp of a screw driver it can be adjusted.
Keep the TV on, Brightness, Contrast and colour to minimum, adjust this control to a little [ a very little movement should be done, otherwise the picture will be get blurred], to just eliminate the lines you see on the screen. Focus control and screen controls are interactable, that is adjusting one may effect the other. After eliminating these lines just up the brightness and contrast control to at about their mid position and press the menu button on the TV or remote control to get the menu screen. Look at the letterings, and if it seem to be out of focus only, just adjust the focus contorl to get well focused captions. The adjustments are hot, that is while the TV is operating. Take care. Ok.

Pictures are blurred around the edges


Have you tried to change the settings like to scenery or adjusted for lighting that could have an effect. The only time it's blurry for me is when I don't adjust for the picture I am taking. The camera itself focuses so maybe there hasn't been enough time for it to focus. Try those things and if it doesn't work I would take it in to a camera shop maybe it has internal problems.

Toshiba 37 inch TV


do you have the satellite hooked up through the coax cable if so that could be the problem you will have to manually set the settings with the remote. always make sure you have only one thing hooked up at a time. if you have cable and satellite dont hook up both it makes the picture lousy see the owners manual i think its page 58 or somewhere close to there.some times if both are hooked up it will not work at all.

Blur on night sports pictures


You are probably going to need a faster lens to get pictures like you want, like around the 1.* range. If you have the ASA at 1600 and aperture at the minimum in Av mode, try and keep the exposure time to 1/focal distance. Such as, if you are shooting 200 mm lens then maximum exposure time is 1/200 second. If you zoom out a bit to 50 mm then it may look better too. You may as well turn the megapixels down too because otherwise you'll just see the blur even more, I'd suggest 3.2 megapixels that will look good in 4x6 photos or on the web. Other than that, try and take pictures where the action is coming at you or going away. Get as close as possible too, so that you don't have to zoom as much. At the H.S. football games I go to it seems like they let anyone down near the field who has a big lens.

Blurred Picture in the shooting mode


one of the possible cause of the said problem can be a defective or broken flex ribbion cable carrying signal to the focus motor. the replacement of the flex will solve the problem. othe may be friction in the focus assembly. cleaning of the same will do the job. but in both the cases you will need the help of repair shop.
