The bottom third of the screen is black and the rest of the picture is scrunched up. it is a part failure so not possible to adjust it. as it has developed watching tv so it is a part failure in vertical section. in vertical section there is a feed back is due to electrolytic capacitor (most probably)or any other component but in feed back ckt. it is a common failure it is not major problem.can be rectified at your place with in no time by a skilled tech.

If only 1/3 of the picture shows you have a hardware problem. If you see the entire picture but it is scrunched in a smaller portion of the screen you may be able to adjust display settings.

My TX is about 14 year old. The picture alwasy was excellent until we had an exlectrical storm that knocked out the cable box to the TV. With a new cable box the TV works. The picture has excellent color,...

Try your cable box on a different tv set and also try connecting the cable directly into the t.v, if that makes no difference then your tv set may have a power supply problem that was caused by an a.c line surge during that storm.

I'm trying to improve the picture- seems to be TOO DARK- tv is 10 yr old ser3 935351541- ihave tried color adj etc

Rca Screen Control These sets have screen control adjustment usually located behind the speaker grill(pops off -velcro or press tabs) and convergence front board. There are 6 contols on a black molded assembly about 31/2"x21/2" square. adjust only the top controls marked "Screen R G B" the bottom ones are focus
-turn on set and let warm up for 30 min at least
-switch tv to blank unused video input channel
-adjust each control in turn until you see the picture glow (with the corresponding color) and slightly back off the control - repeat for each color - this will increase screen brightness and ballance your color
Hope this helped.
