Question about RCA F36676ET 36" TV

1 Answer

Image cropped The TV displays much less than the full image, seems it needs to be adjusted so that more of the image is displayed. The left and right sides of the image are clipped off. I can't seem to find any controls to change this, I'd appreciate any advice.

I have an old Samsung CRT TV model TXM3296HFX. Picture still looks great. But I wish I could expand the image to fill the whole screen. There's about an inch on both sides that appear are not getting...

It sounds that the output voltage comes out from the SMPS is lesser than normal. Check it. If you wish to get more details, check this link. Selecting the view option, either to Mosaic / Time slide, can be selected by the drop-down list, at the top left of the display window, will make surf easy. You can also do a search, by type in the brand name/model number/IC used, in the search box at the top right of the display window.

How do I turn off the "video 1" display in the upper left-hand corner?

With almost any Sony remote with the button marked display this can be done---if left on too long it will burn the image into the screen of the set.

How do I change it from wide screen to regular? I have a black area above and below the picture.

You can set the picture size by remote control itself.

You can vide 480i format programmes in three picture sizes. 4:3, 16:9, and ZOOM
You can change the picture size by pressing the PICTURE SIZE button on the remote control.
4:3 Picutre size
To fill the screen, the top and bottom edges are extedted more widely, although the center of the picture remains near the former ratio.
If receiving a 4:3 programme, the image size is displayed in its originally formatted proportion.
16:9 picure size
This image displays the size of standard 16:9 with black bars at the top and bottom.
If receiving a 4:3 programme, the image is displayed with black bars at the top and bottom and stretched wider.

NOTE: If a fixed bar remains on the screen for a long period of time, the image can become parmanantly engrained in the screen and cause subtle but permanent ghost images. Never leave your TV for long periods of time while it is displaying these images.

Zoom picture size [for 16:9 formats]
The entire picture is uniformly enlarged --it is stretched the same amount both wider and taller (retains its original proportion). The right and left edges of the picture may be hidden.

Has the image been "zoomed" into?  This is usually the result of a image that has been adjusted to fill the screen.  This is not the same as adjusting the aspect ratio as that would still show the entire image even if distorted.  When the image is cropped or is missing information, a zoom feature is usually the culprit.
If this isn't the problem, you maybe able to adjust the TV's horizontal/vertical placement through the TV's onscreen menu but only if it provides that option.  Do you see other channels that appear to fit properly?  I have seen certain channels not fit correctly while others do and this is due to the signal, not your TV.

WS-55807: Images are dark on right side of display, but will go away after 3-4 hours.

you could be on the right track get some freeze spray and go around all the parts to see if you can make it act up, same with heatgun or hair dryer when first turned on heat one area at a time to narrow your problem down

TV Screen Does not Display Entire Image

Most likely it has a horizontal width control on the inside of the set on the main module. It is usually to the right side of the set near the high voltage transformer. I advise caution unless you understand the operation of the tv and the components near the control.
