You must be more specific with your description. Blurred? Like double images; or poor focus; etc.

    In your TV there is a component called a focus block. Most likely it needs to be replaced. Sometimes you can re adjust the individual focus controls for the red, green, and blue picture tubes. Remove the front grill and cover plate to expose the insides of the set. Look for a black plastic trapazoidial shaped part about the size of a pack of cigaretts usually mounted in the upper right corner. There are 6 controls, 3 marked screen and 3 marked focus. You will see anembossed letter above the control R,G,B (red, green, blue) Adjust the focus controls for each color. You should turn to a channel with a lot of print so you can see when your lines are sharp. DO NOT adjust the screen controls. If you dont have enough range on the control to achieve good focus and have the control pegged to the right or left it means the block needs replacing. If you can restore focus, it may last for a long time. Hope this helps.

I have red blur on the facial features of the people onscreen

This could be that your picture is just oversaturated. Try turning the color adjustment down slightly. If you make slight adjustments to the 'Contrast' and 'Color' you should be able to dial that out.

"Popped"? That sounds like a serious issue that is going to require a warranty repair or a professional TV repair person to address.
