If you open up the back and locate hte fluback transformer (part with large red wire coming out of the top), you should see two controls on that tramsformer. One is the screen control which will control the overall brightness of the picture and the other (bottom I think) is a focus control. It may be marked on the transformer itself as well. Turn that control slightly while watching the set. This should resolve the problem.

I have a sony trinitron 36in tv, the screen works fine, colours are all great, no flickering or random shapes at all, its just a little blurry around edges, especially small text, its very blurry and...

it is very easy you just need a very small straight edge screwdriver

you should try to adjust sharpness setting with on screen adjustment first

if tv is too old tube might be going "soft" and sharp focus might not be able to be fully achieved anymore

good luck

Sony kv32v15, Red screen with fine horizantal lines then shuts off

I would suggest to measure the 200 volt B+ at the CRT socket. If that voltage is found to be low, disconnect the socket from the CRT and measure again. If the voltage reading returns to normal you may have a defective CTR.
Also check for open or defective diode on flyback transformer for the 200 vdc source.
I would also suggest to take all the necessary precautions since you are working in a very high voltage area.
Good Luck.

Red green and blue lines

Most projection TVs have an option to refocus. For example, my Sony rear projection TV has a button on the front for focusing the lamps. Try finding this button or option in the menus with your remote. Projection TVs actually use three lamps, one red, one green and one blue. These need to line up exactly in order to form a good picture, and when they come out of focus, you see the edges which sometimes has the effect of a 3D image when you aren't wearing 3D glasses. Hope this helps!

PIP for Sony KV-27XBR45 television trouble shooting

If you have the original remote for this TV on the pip menu (left side slider on remote all the way up) there is a pip off button. If you unplug the unit long enough it should go back to normal. If you go into demo mode and then exit mode you will again be out of the pip. With out the original remote you cannot easily turn pip off.
