Either the flyback or the picture tube is bad. It's usually the tube that causes this problem, but sometimes the resistors in the flyback fail. Since it's such a small set, you probably would be better off replacing it than putting money into repairs.

Blooming causes bad focus!


This load-related change is caused by the failure of the power supply to keep the service voltage for the high voltage section regulated.
The flyback may not have been the only component that failed; its failure may have damaged components in the power supply itself.

if nothing has been tampered with ie. focus controls, lens focus, I would check to make sure the high voltage lead is seated correctly.

RCA P46921. Just changed flyback.


First, this assumes nothing else is going on to cause it. Here's what I did. Go to the 'green grid' via the v76 menu and go through the alignment there. Notice that there are red letters, blue letters, and a green grid. While you are in this screen, adjust the red, green, and blue focus watching the individual color's item until they are in focus. If they won't focus here, they won't focus and you have something else wrong (what I do not know). Then, return to normal programming, then select menu on the remote, then screen, then adjust projection tv convergence both horizontal and vertical crosshare. That ought to get it.

Brightness of picture


If you feel good about opening your set then you can try this: Look for the flyback (high voltage) transformer, with the thick red wire which goes to the top of the picture tube. There are 2 controls on the flyback transformer, focus (top) and screen (bottom)Turn the brightness and contrast all the way down and then increase the screen control until you see retrace lines, and then back it down until those lines just vanish. Return the brightness and contrast to normal and adjust the focus control, if necessary, for a nice sharp picture. Let me know if that brings your brightness back.

I have sound but no opicture


When you replaced the flyback the new flyback is shipped with the screen and focus controls set at minimum. These are the 2 controls on the flyback itself. Turn the set on and let it warm up a minute, then slowly turn up the screen (bottom) control with a small flat-head screwdriver. When the picture is around normal brightness, adjust the focus (top) control until the picture is nice and sharp. Then, turn the brightness and contrast all the way down and set the screen control until you can just see the picture, just above the point where the picture vanishes. Reset the brightness and contrast settings and your picture will be back to perfect.
