    Waiting for engineer next tuesday but after the latest repair my tv is now out of focus. Even after many tweaking at the rear it feels as if you need glasses and the white colour kind of shout at you.

    Any idea?

    Cheers :confused:

    I actually opened mine at the back after downloading the manual from the internet and finding where the knobs of horizontal/vertical lines are at. A good trick i did was put a dvd player setting on the tv with letters and focus the tube using the knobs. Also I used the mute display symbol as a ref point.
    You do have to be carefull though not to touch anything except the knobs though. But if you have already done this then only engineer can help (if you can find a good one)!!! :nono:

    He tried that but to be honest he did not look the sharpest tool in the box.

    I believe so but since I had a new tube fitted every year for the past 2 years I think that everything is possible with my set.
