Question about GE 31GT660 TV
I have a GE 48 inch projection tv. It is approximately 7 or 8 years old. Not sure of exact age...it was my mother's. The color is very dark. If you try to adjust the picture controls it just makes the color look worse....not helping the brightness. I'd hate to get rid of the tv, but it's barely watchable anymore. Any help or advice is appreciated!
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.
