hi There shouldnt be much in the focus system to go wrong as really there is nly the tube base and the flyback transformer. The usual for a TV is the tube faulty so its beyond repair. You could try the focus control, this will be on the flyback transformer. Back off TV, look for a heavy lead going to the dome of the tube at centre top and with eyes ONLY follow that back to the flyback transformer. On the side of that transformer is 2 screws, one near the top is the focus control. You will need a screwdriver to turn it and it usually has a seal to be broken. That will turn from say 8 o clock to 4 o clock no more, turn it up clockwise, try both ways. if it almost fixes but not quite it would be the tube. good luck

SOURCE: screen is too dark

with a flashlight at the back of the set often times there is an adjustment you can make WITHOUT having to open the set!!!

look for a little hole in the back of the plastic cabinet labeled SCREEN then with a flat screwdriver holding only the plastic handle, insert it into the hole and SLOWLY rotate until the screen brightens up until it is watchable.

This is compensating for age in the picture tube. you may get a few day or a few more years! of a much better picture.

If you start seeing some thin lines on the screen then back off you have gone too far. Do this adjustment with the brightness and contrast controls on the menu turned up all the way.

it is also safe to play with the focus adjustment right next to the screen if thing seem a little blurry. you will need two people one to watch from a distance for best picture.

I gotta love it when people make up answers. There is no such thing as a "contrass module". I'm assuming the poster meant "contrast". The trouble is your 12-year-old picture tube. It's gotten weak and isn't getting as bright or sharp as it used to. Picture tube manufacturers estimate the useful life of a tube at about 7 years today. There are adjustments inside that might help some, but you need a new picture tube. It's going to cost a lot more than $60 to $75 for that. You're better off replacing the TV.

Best picture calibration settings


For any TV; irrespective of its brand or type, set the contrast to 70 to 80%; brightness to 30 to 35% will produce a clear and vivid picture in B/W. Set the color to Zero, and check this first. After you have satisfied with the picture in Black/White [B/W], advance the color intensity, according to your viewing taste. This adjustment will depend on individual taste. Anyway, note the skin tone of the news reader at the studio. Take this color a reference. That's all.

Samsung tv calibration


You're asking about the picture settings to this TV; I assume, and posts this solution. Just set it to user mode; in terms of picture; set the Color to minimum (0); Contrast = 70 ~ 75%; Brightness to 30 ~ 40%. In this way, just set a picture in Black/White first. If you see that the contrast or brightness level should be adjusted to get a good B/W picture, do it according to your viewing taste. After set this, advance the color; and compare the skin tone of a news reader at the studio.
In most cases, this must be the perfect adjustment. If you wish to get more details to picture, advance the Sharpness control. Do not set it too more. Less than 30% will be sufficient. If the broadcasting system is NTSC, you have to adjust the Hue too.

What is the correct picture setting for a vizio smart tv model E322AR?


Contrast = 60 to 80%.
Brightness = 40 to 55%
Color = according to personal viewing taste.
Sharpness = 15 to 20%
The best way to tune to a perfect picture is, set the color to Zero first. Without any colour, increase the contrast to at about 65%. Adjust the brightness to get a perfect picture in B/W. Then increase the color, according to your viewing taste. Compare the skin tone of a person. That's all.

It sounds that the white balance to the set has gone wrong. Decrease the color intensity to picture to 'Zeo', and check, the TV displays the picture in pure black/white. It should be so. If not, you have to adjust the white balance adjustment. To adjust this, you have to enter its service mode option.
If you wish to get more details about how to enter, adjust and exit the service mode, check the site linked here.http://electronicshelponline.blogspot.com/
Pull up previous posts by its left sidebar, or type in the brand name and model number to of your set, to its search box, and press 'Enter' or view it in Mosaic / Timeslide option.

All projection TV sets have two very common problems. One is convergence ( 3D/Warped video or dead set) the other is CRT fluid ( Dull Video). Here are more details and solutions for both.

Common Problem #1) Convergence has gone out

Projection TV sets need to have all three colors - RED - BLUE - GREEN - lined up correctly on the screen in order for the video to look normal. When its out of alignment the video will look 3D, wavy, distorted, etc. In some cases the TV will also not show any video. Most of the time you just need to adjust your convergence in the TV menu. If you cannot adjust it in the menu - then your convergence is broken and needs to be repaired.

This is a very common failure on these projection sets and a fairly simple DIY fix. All projection sets including Samsung, RCA, Sony, Philip Magnavox, Panasonic, Pioneer, Akai, GE, JVC, Toshiba, and others at some point will have the same problem.

Common Symptoms include....


  • Screen looks 3D
  • Colors don't line up
  • One or more colors can't be adjusted when using the convergence menu.
  • Screen is bowed or warped.
  • TV shuts off after powering on. Power light will blink. TV may also make a chirping noise.
Here are some pics of convergence problems.

Common Problem #2) CRT Fluid is Cloudy

Projection TV tubes have a liquid coolant that is used to keep them from overheating. After many years the coolant in the blue and green tubes will become cloudy and cause the screen to look dull, red/orange, etc. You may even see halos around images.

I just need to adjust the resolution on this TV. NO ONE at RCA could seem to help me. Thank you.


hi,
did u mean to adjust the picture setting then go for the following
1 press menu on the remote
2. using down arrow select picture quality and press ok. available options in picture quality and its use is listed below. you can use it according to your preference.

Basic Picture Control- Displays the five slider controls for adjusting

the way the picture looks.

of the picture.

automatic color adjustments: Cool for a more blue palette of picture

colors; Normal; and Warm for a more red palette of picture colors. The

What is and how do i adjust the white balnceon my fujitsu S550 digital camers?


Adjustment is in the menu screen, you shouldn't have to go very deep as it is a frequently adjusted setting.
White Balance is how the camera interprets white depending on ambient lighting. Have you ever noticed how when you are taking pictures inside at night and all of the light comes from lamps and the flash that your pictures have a yellow look? Take a picture under flourescent lamps and the pictures look different as well? How about outside? Best true color rendition on the picture taken outside, but different than the others.
White balance is a way for the photographer to adjust the tone of the picture to accurately reproduce the true colors seen in real life in the picture. Most cameras have an automatic white balance and they usually work fairly well. But for the best results, set it manually. Your whites will be white and skin tones appear accurate.
Hope this helps! Good Luck!
