The coolant fluid in the blue and green picture tubes is in need of changing.Unless you have done this before I do not recommend that you attempt this repair.A shop shoud be able to make this set look like new again for about $275

Keep asking for best picture settings for jvc television model lt-39c740A but getting no reply no very impressed


There is no such thing as a best setting. The "best" setting depends on many things, such as the room brightness, the direction of the light (if any), and your own eyes.

No one can tell you the best settings without knowing the details. Are you watching in a dark room or a bright room? Is any light coming through the windows? In which direction? And most important of all, what looks best to YOU?

First, average life on these sets is about 3 to 4 years at best and only boards are sold so even if you can pin point the board (no individual parts are sold) it is likely if will not get fixed and doing so is a bad investment as all the boards are now old.

Picture is dark


On projections, there isn't much you can do as they age accept replace the CRTs. In that case you might as well buy a new one. One thing you can do is open the front speaker grill to where you can see inside the set. Depending on the brand, find the "Screen" controls, one for each tube. Some sets have all 3 on the "focus/screen" block (small black box mounted in front) and some have the knob on each individual CRT board (mounted to the bottom of the CRT). What this does is increases the current to each tube, thus making that colr brighter. Do each equally as to keep the color balanced. Only do this if you feel comfortable with working on electronics.

This is called a dark shading error. All the LCD consumer sets have some visible degree of this effect. Some will be a little less or more than others even from the same batch in the assembly run. This has to do with the optical design quality of how the back-plane lamps illuminate the screen. The design and assembly tollerance of this area is very critical.

Normally, LCD screens don't show their best picture in a darkened room. The very black regions of the picture content may look a little washed out. LCD screens are best watched in a room that is lit, but not very bright. You have to consider that there is a powerful set of lights behind the polarized panel of the LCD display, and there will always be some breakthrough of light.

If you want a TV that is more like a CRT in its characteristics a Plasma would have been a good choice. The trade-off with the Plasma is that it does not have the picture sharpness of the LCD. A Plasma set is best watched in a darkened room.

If you have an LCD computer monitor, take a look at it in a dark room with a black screen. You will most likely see the dark shading errors. Only the very expensive production studio type LCD monitors have less of this error than the consumer sets, and they are not absolutely perfect.

One of the most common faults with the phillips rear projections is the coolant in the tubes. That can and will make the picture very dim and can cause the brightness and focus controls not to have much affect over it. Please respond to this same post with your model number and I will check to see if their are any other items that could cause that symptom.
