Re: Goes dark

Turn off the sensor then Its should be a switch or in the main picture menu. These sensors do go bad but its rare . The problem here is usually a misajust of the sensor or a defective sensor But like I said there should be an off for it.

Why is the picture on my RCA tv goes slowly darker as i watch it?

Contact any service technician. Its CRT base connector socket, or, LOT is faulty. This is not a user repairable fault. Replacement to any one among component stated above, or both, might need replacement. Gopakumar Gopalan Google

Zenith pvr6069 rk is out of focus for letters and picture not very bright

First this set should have a production date on the rear of around 1995--fairly old.

If letters outlined in red etc--a convergence problem--either adjustment with remote (in menu) or a circuit problem in same area.

If picture dull and darker--locate the 3 large lens inside from the rear and wipe them clean--they are the light source for the sets picture and if dirty will cause a dark dull picture.

Let me know if questions.

How long u have this RCA analoge tv?Around 10 years or more and used it like about 5 or 6 hrs everydays?Yes,than ur tv it is losing CRT tube radiation cohetion.As times go bye years in years out the tv CRT-(tv tube) radiation will slowly dying out,Tv actual pictures will lost some of it luster and it brightnesses to the tv auctual pictures.Brightnesses of CRT tube will get darker and darker until the tv actual pictures barely it is watchable anymore.Contrast,Brightness and Colors adjusting more will help some.But u have to take this tv aparts and take a Flat scerw driver turn up a little bit more of the tv HV-(high voltage) SCREEN button on the FBT-(flyback transformer) to make any big differences of the CRT tube brightnesses.The FBT-(flyback tranformer) is the big block of plastic with a red wire with a black cap hook up to the tv CRT-(tv tube).This adjustment on of the FBT,HV-SCREEN button will help the tv CRT-(tv tube) last another year or two.

Screen goes dark

I thught I answered this one but if you disconnet the sensor it should brighten up the picture If it dosent then its part of the brightness curcuit and must be replace. As I remeber thewre are severall models that you could simply disconnect. Or there should be an auto brightness feature in the main menu picture ajustment to simply disable or shut it off. Good luck
