Tip

Kitchen table, Screen (G2) voltage adjustment, Course 101


Well, those of you who have no idea why a Screen Voltage (technically known as G2) adjustment may interest you, here is a photo of a bad adjustment (too high).

8914ffc.jpg

You may also experience smeared colors… this is caused by a low adjustment. To correct this, we need to get the back off of the TV. It would be a good time to unplug it if you have not already done so. Next we locate the FBT (Fly-Back Transformer).

be30da0.jpg

This is a 20” model and it has 2 knobs. Your FBT may vary, as some slim designs and some large tube models may have 3 knobs.

You will need to look closely at the knobs; they will be labeled “Focus” or “Screen”. On units with 3 knobs, there will be 2 focus knobs and 1 screen. For now, we will be working with at the Screen knob only.

With the adjustments identified, we are ready to plug the TV in (including your standard cable connection) and turn it on… BECARFUL!!! For the rest of this adjustment, we will be working inside of an electrically charged TV. We also need to normalize the picture, so go into your TV menu and adjust the Picture and Brightness settings to the middle or center.

If your TV normally displays a black screen when you do not have a signal connected, ex: Video input 1, then this will be the quickest and easiest setup for you to use. However, if you are not so lucky, you may need to bust through your DVD video collection and find a “between scenes” shot that you can pause on to give you as black of a picture as possible. Eliminate as much light in the room as you can (just remember, you still need to see what your doing)… we want a good view of the screen without the interference of ambient lighting.

Once you have your black screen all set, we are now ready to proceed to the adjustment. If you have lines on the screen, see (HIGH)… if you have color smear, see (LOW).

HIGH: If you have some lines in the picture with a washed out appearance, your Screen voltage is too high. You will need to turn the Screen knob on the FBT counter-clockwise. Do this slowly, until the lines are no longer visible. If you still have a small amount of illumination coming from the screen, back it down a touch further until this just disappears.

LOW: If you have smeared colors in the picture that seem to trail of the edges, your Screen voltage is too low. You will need to turn the Screen knob on the FBT clockwise. Do this slowly, until you just see some lines zigzagging top to bottom on the screen. Now, you will need to turn the Screen knob on the FBT counter-clockwise. Do this slowly, until the lines are no longer visible. If you still have a small amount of illumination coming from the screen, back it down a touch further until this just disappears.

The final set, switch the TV input over to your cable input and check out the picture. Take a good look at some bright scenes and dark scenes. Do they look ok? Adjust the Picture and Brightness in your menu… can you set the picture to your liking? If so, you are all set. If not, double check your work (remember to normalize the Picture and Brightness setting).

feab016.jpg

If you are unable to adjust the Screen voltage as described above, you may have a High Voltage problem with your TV. This will require a repair and is not covered by this tutorial.

If you are all set and the adjustment is good, we should have a quick look at the focus adjustment. Return the TV to your Black screen setup. Press the TV menu button to give you nice fixed display to focus. Adjust the focus knob(s) until you have the clearest picture. It’s important to balance the center of the picture with the corners of the picture. If the center is too sharp and the edges and corners are blurry, it is not a good adjustment. Do your best, you are the final judge of your work here.

Once you have finished the adjustments and verified the picture with your cable picture, you are ready to close it up and return the TV to normal service. Unplug the TV, replace the back cover… enjoy!

I hope this was helpful. If you benefit from this tutorial, please leave some feedback.

How do you adjust vertical height on sony bravia tv


Check the aspect ratio set. If it is set to wide, there will be black bars at top and bottom of the screen. Go to its picture setting menu, and adjust the settings. If it do not help you, enter its service mode to adjust the picture height. Although this is a semi-skilled work, if you have patience and concentration, you can do this adjustment. There is no need to open the TV. If you wish to get more details about how to enter service mode, and adjust the data values there, check the site linked here. http://electronicshelponline.blogspot.com/

My new lg 3d tv is closng on top bottom and sides is there anything i can do to cure the problem


Could you provide more information? What do you mean when you say, "closing?" Do you mean there is a black band around the picture? If so that means the original picture is recorded at a lower pixel density than your TV will display.
In the past most TV program signals provided a picture dimensions (in computer standards) very roughly 600 pixels wide by 400 pixels tall. What this means is that a picture of that pixel size will display as a small, squarish image slightly wider than it is tall on a (now) standard 1080p LCD television--which produces an image 1920 pixels wide by 1080 pixels high.
That would be nearly unwatchable (picture too small) except for the fact that most TVs compensate for the relatively small size of "standard definition TV (SD TV, as opposed to HDTV) by enlarging the image so that the top and bottom edges of the picture touch the top and bottom of the TV screen. This will leave black bands on either side of the picture. Some LCD TVs will automatically stretch BOTH dimensions of the image, which yields a distorted, "sqaushed" image.
All my comments above apply to both standard LCD and 3D-LCD TVs, by the way.

Rca 42in full hd lcd picture flickers


If the picture on your TV flickers, there may be a simple fix. Here are some possible answers and suggested solutions:

1. Your set-top box may need a simple reboot. Unplug the power connection to the set-top box for about 30 seconds. Reconnect the power and turn the set-top box back on.

2. Check all of your cables for a loose connection by tightening each one with your fingers.Flickers can sometimes be caused by bends in rigid cables, too.

3. If your picture flickers to a black or blue screen, you could have a bad set-top box. Contact your cable or satellite service provider about installing a new one.

4. If you still have audio, the flickering could also mean that you have a failing backlight.

For additional troubleshooting information, check out the chart at TV flickering for more solutions. I hope this helps!

Black box in middle of screen/picture


Closed Caption function to that channel you select is ON. Make it OFF, when you are in that channel which displays this black box. It will be best to reset the TV to its factory settings first, and then re-tune it. for more details, refer its user manual.
