You will need to apply pressure to the top section of the rear cover.
Look for where the front and rear are joined at the top, and press down while pushing backwards. Becareful though it dosn't slip out of your hands and end up on the floor.
The point you need to adjust is on the flyback transformer (can't miss it..huge blob with a red lead going from it to the back of the tube).
There are 2 adjustment screws on the side. One for focus, one for screen. Have the monitor on and move the focus screw slowly left and right until you are happy with the picture.
DO NOT AT ANYTIME TOUCH THE CHASSIS WHILE THE SET IS ON. USE PLASTIC ELECTRONICS SCREWDRIVERS TO PREVENT ELECTROCUTION.
Please, take the greatest of care if you intend to open it up. These are very high voltage devices and will kill.

    In general when it comes to CRT monitors these days it is cheaper to buy a used LCD monitor then to repair a CRT.



    For reference, a 15" LCD is the same size as a 17" CRT with viewing size.



    I hate to say it, but for what it is worth, you are better off to just go the LCD route.



    Good luck =)

Image not focused


Possible worn out tube. The focus adjustment is on the flyback transformer and has to have the back cover removed to access it. The flyback will be a black and have a red wire connecting to the crt tube. This is very high voltage and can be dangerous. With a plastic screwdriver you can turn the focus adjustment knob on the transformer. Do not adjust the screen control knob. If the focus does not clean up, then the tube is probably worn or the flyback is bad.

Fujifil FinePix S6500fd: How to focus the subject(blur the background)? Like this: http://sphotos.ak.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ak-ash2/hs604.ash2/155662_1475615262462_1596139557_31044751_765416_n.jpg


What you are asking about is called depth of field. Boiled down, it means that there is a certain amount of area in an image that is in focus, given the focal length of the lens, the aperture (size of the shutter opening) and some other factors. There's a lot of theory behind it, but you just want to know how to accomplish that creative blur behind the subject, right?

If your camera has the capability to choose the aperture, known as the f-stop, either with a manual mode or an aperture-priority mode, then this is pretty easy. The larger the aperture (size of shutter opening) the smaller the depth of field, which means only a small area is in focus. The aperture, or f-stop, is denoted with numbers like F/2.8 or F/8, etc. The lower the number, the bigger the aperture and the more background blur you will get. There is an inverse relation ship between shutter opening and speed, too. A big opening like F2.8 means a faster shutter speed, versus a small opening like F/22. Every lens is different, so your aperture options will vary.

If your camera does not allow you to choose the aperture, it may still have a "scene" setting you can use. A "portrait" or "night" setting usually has a bigger aperture than, say, a "landscape" setting.

Other factors also contribute to creating background blur. All else being equal, the blur increases as you move closer to the subject or as you zoom in on the subject with a zoom lens. Also, having greater space between the background and your subject increases blur.

So, to maximize background blur and create a shallow depth of field, you want to pick the largest aperture possible (smallest f-stop number), you want to get close to the subject and extend your zoom as much as you can, and you want to maximize the distance between the subject and the start of any background objects. Your success will depend in part on your camera and lenses.

If all else fails, you can also artificially create the background blur in software after the image is taken, but that's another story!

Frequently we're getting out-of-focus shots with our 710. It is not clear what setting is producing this. Most of our shots are taken in "reduce blur' mode. We can't figure out why we'll get about 35%...


You're supposed to press the shutter button half-way and allow the camera to lock in the focus (it will beep) before pressing the rest of the way. Do you do that?

Monitor does not stay on the monitor only stays on for approx 1min, this is difficult to figure out the problem as it is hard to see the screen with out back ight on.


Hi, what you need to do is ajust the display time for your monitor. Open the: Control Panel, click on; Performance, next, click on: Ajust power settings, next, click on: Choose when to turn off the display. "I'm sure you can figure it out from there! " Thanks paul7of9

I'm afraid this is more a learning curve in general photography :-) I know I also fell into that pit, after so many years of 35mm usage!, by believing at first that "digital" can do it all, well it can't fool general laws of photography/optics :-) .. once one has mastered that, things have a tendency to go a lot smoother :-)
