Re: Dark Picture

Hi there!
The knobs you refer to, are those perhaps the knobs on the board or knobs on the flyback transformer? None of these knobs should be turned. They are preset to the factory standard and if a fault occurs the fault should be addressed, not adjustments to pots. I would suggest checking all the caps in the power supply, Line stage and video section. It may also be the video processor(in the area of the tuner section). Check for caps which are rounded at the top. This is common for dark picture. Please note: There is on average about 15000V running through a TV when switched on, please be careful and unplug when changing components or refer to a repair technician. Good Luck, Jus004

Did attatching HD Antenna fry my HDTV?

"the screen is nearly constantly with the exceptions of..." What does that mean?
If your antenna has a power supply it may have malfunctioned and fried your TV's tuner. Forty inch flat screens go for about $400 and up these days.
It could also be a coincidence, that the TV was expiring just when you hooked the antenna up.

Picture is dark

Does not seem like a bad tube alone. Could also be that the Video output Transistors Supply Filter capacitor having dried out. It is a 100mfd 160V capacitor, which on replacement will improve the brightness of the immage. And yes, you could also try increasing the heater voltage (Filament Voltage)of the Pictuire tube, this will definitely increase brightness, but will reduce the life of the Picture tube. You gotta think - 10 year old TV, should I repair or exchange and get a new one???

Colors are distorted, brightness excessive

You may have a bad Fly Back transformer. The focus and screen(brightness) controls are located on this transformer. Some of the new RCA's have had problems with this transformer. If the screen control opens up the picture may either go dark or light which would cause your problem. Also a bad Picture tube could cause this. It shouldn't since the tv is not very old though. I've seen a few new ones go bad. Stargazer

Dark picture

How old is the TV? More than 6-7 yrs? Then it's time to do a trade in. But if you are very attached to it, get a Technician to recondition the Picture Tube. This may give it life for another couple of years. You could also ask a technician to check the DC filter Capacitor for the HT line to the Video Drive circuits. Over time this capacitor dries out and also causes a darkening of the picture. It is normaslly a 100 mfd 160V capacitor.
