    My TV is about 5 yrs. old. The picture is blurry and dark. Night scenes are barely visible. Lettering on the screen is blurry. I have tried the Majic Focus several times with no luck. Can you help. Thanks.

The t.v. is 30 years old. The problem is a blurry picture that cannot be cleared up on the consul. I have cable. Is it just too old for a clear picture or should I just "live with it."


A TV of that age is just going out the blurry pic is possible from the cable signal. ( i work for a cable company) but the chances of that being the issue are about 1 in about 10,000

Blurry screen


I have researched your set. There isn't a date of production that is available so your guesstimate of 11 years old is about where I would place it.

For your specific problem (which is common among old style projection TVs) it's usually the three picture tube or "guns" are showing their age. If it has slowly become more blurry then that is the case. If it has suddenly become blurry then there may be a fixable defect. Judging by it's age I would suspect that your are up for replacing all three tubes in your set. My recommendation is DON'T DO IT. You will be much better off purchasing a newer and preferably flat screen TV. All projection TVs with picture tubes in them typically last between 10,000 and 20,000 hours of operation. At 11 years your set is in that range if you watch an average amount of TV. Enjoy looking for a new set and pick out something that tickles your fancy. Sets have improved vastly with the thin screen technology.

Sony TV with blurry picture


blurry picture is mainly due to focusing voltage is not proper. solution 1 check & adjust focus control on flyback. 2 check crt base for loose. 3 wire going to focus control on crt base got disconnected due to foreign materials deposit on it. 4 if tv is old possibility of crt getting weak.

as you said your tv is about 3 years old. we cant tell that the picture tube is defective and im sure your CRT socket is in solid contact at that 3 years old tv. for me it could be a path ways to the CRT wirings. a blurry picture may cause a insufficient voltage or a lost of voltage ratings. try to check if you can see and test a leaky capacitor 16V 1000mf near from the CRT wirings ending in contact to the main board. if you cant fix this problem contact a pro to solve your problem. good luck
