I have an older View Sonic CRT monitor.
It is older but has not been used very much maybe a 20 hours.

Hooked it up to s PC the other day and the screen was out of focus.
None of the monitor adjustments had any effect. Running it in Xp.

Is there anyway to fix this?  Or should i just junk it?

Pretty much all CRT monitors have a brightness and focus control on the flyback transformer. On a lot of televisions you can easily adjust these with a flat blade screwdriver from the outside, but unfortunately that's never been the case with any computer monitor I've seen. That means you'll most likely have to take the monitor casing off if you want to adjust them. And of course, to adjust them properly you're really going to need to see the picture while doing so, which means adjusting it while it's running. I would have to recommend against it, because there's more than enough power running through that part of the TV to kill you if you make a mistake and touch the wrong thing.
