How old is the monitor?
May be time for a replacement
I don't believe there's a focus for monitors.
Typically the only things that need focusing is when you're projecting.

Don't try this if you don't know about high voltage but, there is a pot(variable transistor) inside most monitors to the rear of the tube. There will be about 5 or 6 of them. They adjust color and focus. Over time, they fall out of their specs and need to be realigned. A TV shop can do it in 5 minutes. Takes longer to take the case off really. My 19" had the same problem.

Hi, Being a Tv Tech for 27 years, my input is there is a focus control in a monitor(crt style), it is located on the fbt (high voltage transformer). There are 2 controls one is focus and the other is screen master adjustment. What cross Over is refering to are drive and bias controls for the crt and are located on the pc board at the neck of the tube. These will not cause a focus problem, they are for setting grey scale tracking,(the basic platform for color). It is kind of rare for focus to suddenly go bad unless there is a serious problem, it usually happens so gradualy most people don't even notice, and generaly is not severe. If this happened gradually and the monitor is old, then the crt could be worn out. Be carefull, there are several thousand volts in this area. I myself still wouldn't rule out the video card though. Good luck and keep us informed. Bluejay

I have checked my video card a couple of times. Reseated it at least 3 times. Nothing seems to be working. i'm going to hook my computer up to a different monitor and see how that turns out. thanks in advance

Bluejay is correct. I had a focus problem with my old Sunstar Computer Monitor. I adjusted the focus control on the flyback transformer and it worked. However, I bore a small hole in the monitor casing just infront of the focus control screw so that I can re-adjust the focus when it gets out-of-focus again. I have no glue to fix it permanently. So I keep adjusting it maybe, once every 20min. Is there any fix solution for this? Do you have schematic diagram of this model? Thanks a lot...
