It's probably not your flyback and if you're still with us I could suggest the following:: It sound like convergence is mis-aligned and all you've done is try to use MF to correct it - but the MF may be corrupted - hopefully you know a little bit about your own tv to set the convergence manually so try this:
1. Turn Set On For 20-30 Min. Try Magic Focus, If This Does Not Help Follow These Steps.
2. With Tv Powered On, Access The Dcam By Pressing Magic Focus Button Until You See "Static Mode" On Screen. As Soon As This Appears, Press "Input" & "Ant" On The Remote At The Same Time. "Dynamic Mode" Should Be On The Screen Now Indicating The Dcam Mode Is Now Active.
3. Press "Swap" Or "Tv/Vcr" To Read From Rom. Crosshatch Convergence Should Be Corrected Now. Adjust Or Touch Up As Needed & Press"Pip Mode"/ "Prog" To Write To Rom. Then Press Again To Save And Then Press Mute To Return To Crosshatch.
4. Reinitialize Magic Focus Sensors By Pressing "Pip Mode"/"Prog" & Then "Pip Ch". Sensors Will Light Up On-Screen. When Green Dots Appear, Press Mute To Return To Crosshatch. Turn Set Off, Then Back On, And Confirm That Magic Focus Works And Convergence Is Corrected and no more out of focus...

    ok...this is really meant for a qualified technician..but if your like want to fix it yourself and save a few beans for happy hour.........hear we go...take the lower back off the tv...on your left hand'll see a thingy that looks like a spark plug has a red wire sticking out of the top of it that goes off to the front of the tv (more precisely to the voltage tripler/High voltage block assembly) on the back of that is 2 little says "focus"...the other says "screen"...try turning the fucus back and forth slightly until you get the best focus...we techs usually use a mirror in front of the tv so we can see the focus going in and out and make the changes without having to go in front..then in back of the tv...or asking a second party"are we there yet?"...let me know how it turns out..............

How can i adjust settings for blurred pictures on Samsung ES15

That would depend on why the pictures are blurry.

If the pictures are blurred because of camera motion, you need to either use a faster shutter speed or place the camera on a tripod or other stable support.

If the pictures are blurred because the subject is moving, you need to use a faster shutter speed.

If the pictures are blurred because it's out of focus, you need to ensure that the camera is focusing on what you consider to be the subject, not what the camera chooses.

Webcam blurred

Very often this is a problem with the focus. Check if the webcam has a focus ring in front of it and if so, try turning it to sharpen the image.

The picture is blurred because the red, green, and blue colors are not properly focused. The TV's auto focus feature doesn't solve the problem

This can be as simple as poor solder connections at the convergence ICs or defective ICs. If you can solder you can fiz this yourself. Let me know if you wish to attempt the repair and I'll suply additional details and instructions.

Blurred Images with Olympus E520

When operating any digital camera, the camera tries to capture the best focus and exposure for that particular scene. By pressing the shutter button half-way down, the focus and exposure is being set. There will be a green circle on the upper left hand corner of the screen, then your camera is ready to take the picture. Slowly depress the shutter the rest of the way down to take the picture.

All pictures are blurred and when looking at screen its blurred

Your camera's Focus mode may be set on Macro Selectable in which case the Auto Focus Range will be "wide: 0.07–0.7 m, tele: 0.4–0.7 m (macro AF)" as quoted in the specifications from web page for the EasyShare M1033. While this setting is great for a close-up of a flower, anything more than a meter (about one yard) away will be blurred unless you reset your Auto Focus mode back to "normal AF" or "landscape mode"
