I bought this TV 4yrs ago and its been working fine until today when I went to turn it on. I have sound, but the picture quality is the issue. I have gray/white lines going across the screen and although i still see the images and can make out color, the pictures appear grayish/faded (almost like if I had put a see through sheet or veil over the screen. Can you tell me what might be the problem?

Re: Toshiba 32AF42 Poor picture quality
TRY ADJUSTING THE SCREEN CONTROL ADJUSTMENT AT THE BOTTOM OF THE FLYBACK TRANSFORMER.THIS SHOULD REMOVE THE RETRACE LINES AND ANJUST THE HASY LOOK TO THE PICTURE IF NOT YOU HAVE A BAD CAP IN THE SCREEN CIRCUIT .LOOK FOR A 10MFD/250V CAP IF FEEDS THE NECK BOARD ATTACHED TO THE PICTURE TUBE 200V DC.

I think you'd have to look at how much a comparable set would cost. I know that flat screen sets are coming down in price.
One thing you could try is to adjust the focus control although if it just went all of a sudden, then this may not help. There are two controls on the flyback transformer. Follow the thick red wire from the top of the picture tube down to the transformer that it's connected to on the circuit board. There will be two controls, the upper one being focus (marked with an "f" or the word focus). Try adjusting this while watching the picture. A mirror may be helpful. At the same time, be very careful what you touch in there, any metal part could have high voltage on it. As long as you are just touching plastic parts you should be ok. A good rule of thumb is to keep one hand behind your back as you work so as you don't inadvertantly ground yourself to the chassis while touching something with a high voltage on it.
If this scares you a little perhaps it's worth taking the set to a shop for an estimate.
Sounds like DRY JOINTS WITHIN DFS MODULE.
This is a pcb within a rectangular metal screened box on the left hand side of set when looking from the front.
Will need resoldering be carefull very fine print will need decent soldering iron with fine tip & poss magnyfying lamp to aid looking.
If your not at all sure take to repair shop.
This TV is nice set has one of the best crt pictures you can get.
