The bottom is blurry because some of the anti-freeze (clear ethelyne glycol) has leaked out. This anit freeze needs to be replaced or the CRT will get too hot and break. It will also clear up the picture.

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

Blurry tv screen

If you are comfortable on doing adjustment with working TV then take off back cover of TV and check flyback transformer, there you would see 2 control knobs, upper knob if to adjust focus. rotate it CW or CCW to obtain maximum focus on TV screen.
Put back cover and enjoy.

Picture is blurry and is shaped like a bow tie on my tv

This is a convergence problem that you can fix if you can solder. Let me know if you wish to attempt the repair and I'll post additional details and instructions.

Blury screen with rainbow image cannot read words on screen

The convergence integrated circuits have failed and most likely the 2 5A fuses have opened as well. I would find a local Mitsubishi service shop.

Blurry Picture from JVC I'ART connected to Mortorola HDTV reciever

Good day.

Maybe the problem is with your television set. Sometimes, loose connections within the TVs' circuitry can cause this.

Try to isolate this problem first by informing your local cable operator for verification by field technician.

JVC AV-32F704 32" TV Picture is blurry - cannot read any writing on the screen

You didn't mention if you saw fine white diagonal lines running through the screen from top to bottom. If so, you likely have a shorted Picture Tube which is not usually fixable. If there are no lines seen running through the screen, then it is possible the High voltage transformer which also has a screen voltage and focus control built in that could be bad. I would expect the cost of that part to be about $100, so the repair cost total could approach that of a new set I would guess.
