Is the monitor a flat screen? if so, you can try the autoadjust button, which is found by pressing the monitor menu button, and cycling through.

My monitor is a bit blurry. Not sure why

Try to see if your monitor has a menu button which will allow you to select an "Auto-focus" option within it's settings.

If not,
1. Go to your desktop
2. Start Menu
3. Control Panel
4. System and Security
5. Select Device Manager (Accept administrative rights)
6. Click the drop down button next to "Monitors"
7. Right-click and select "Update Driver Software"

If it is up-to-date, then do the same thing by clicking the drop-down button to the left of "Display Adapters."

If these options do not work, then you know that it is not an issue with your hardware, it is certainly an issue with your monitor (this means you may need to purchase a new one).

Please, let me know if this has helped you at all and feel free to leave any further comments that might help me further instruct you on how to fix this problem.

I will be following this problem to make sure you have solved the issue in which you are having.

CRT monitor screen is out of focus.text and other images looks blurry


This kind of symptoms can be correct by the focus adjustment at the flyback transformer. FBT mostly has two control knob (Focus and Screen), focus is usually at the top one like in the sample picture below.


Open the back cover of your unit and then locate the FBT. Power on the unit and try to adjust the focus knob.

If the symptoms can't be cured by the this step, this is an indication that the CRT socket is already faulty. You have to replaced this parts and then make some adjustment at the focus knob of the FBT and your unit will back to normal again.

CRT(picture tube) socket


Hope I helped you.
Have a nice day!

Blurry screen

There is a focus adjustment inside on a part called the flyback transformer. It's located toward the back of the circuit board, and you'll know which part it is by the red cable going from it to a connection on the picture tube. The flyback generally has two small adjustment knobs on it. The focus knob is the upper one. Slightly turning this one way or the other may improve the focus a bit, but usually a sudden loss of focus means either the flyback or the picture tube has failed. Either of these is cause to treat yourself to a new monitor. You can buy 17-inch flat screens now for less than $150 at regular prices, and sometimes you'll catch a good sale at the office stores.

If you choose to try the focus adjustment, BE VERY CAREFUL!!

1) You have to remove the back of the monitor and work with the power on. Parts inside, especially the picture tube, can give you a very nasty shock AND EVEN KILL YOU.

2) Be very careful where you are putting your fingers when working on a live set. Make sure you have a safe grip on the adjustment knob first, THEN look at the screen while you adjust it. Don't go blindly reaching around.
