    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.

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 51" Rear Projection TV is blurry with colored ghost images


Thats caused by a convergence failure. The Sony type 1 convergence repair kit from www.tvrepairworld.com will usually correct that issue the kit contains the components and the CD with repair instructions so you can repair yourself.

Blurry picture and arched at bottom


We have a Proscan 50" Projection TV. A T.V. repairman told us it was the HV (Horizontal Vertical) Splitter causing this problem and tried to find the part for us. The part for our TV was too hard to find though and we ended up not having ours fixed. Our T.V. is 8 years old though, and Proscan is discontinued. Maybe you'll have better luck finding an H.V. Splitter for your TV. Of course, you'd need a professional to install it for you. Good luck.
