if the tv has never been service before you could have dust on the 3 tubes,this will decrease the brightness to the screen. try taking the front or back off & see if you can see the top of the picture tubes. remember to unplug the tv & to clean spray the cleaner on the colth , then clean the tup of the tube. never spary on the tube itself. hope this works for you. to remove the screens remove the front grill, then remove the screws @! the bottom of the screen & if i remember right the top just sits on a lip, so gently try to lift the screen up.careful, these screens are expensive & you will have 2 or 3 of them. some of them are really easy to scratch.

Sounds like your convergence chip has gone bad. Usually costs about $300-$400 to fix. I would call a local TV repair shop and let them give you a free estimate.

Why can i hardly see the picture on my rca 52wh74 its so dark


If you had the tv 4 long, it may need a new bulp.
meanwhile, I would clean the optics and such.
those tv`s usually have several fans inside and turn into
expensive air cleaners.

MY TV PICTURE HAS GONE A LITTLE DARKER AND ADJUSTING BRIGHT, CONTRAST, COLOR,ETC. DOES NOT HELP


How long u have this RCA analoge tv?Around 10 years or more and used it like about 5 or 6 hrs everydays?Yes,than ur tv it is losing CRT tube radiation cohetion.As times go bye years in years out the tv CRT-(tv tube) radiation will slowly dying out,Tv actual pictures will lost some of it luster and it brightnesses to the tv auctual pictures.Brightnesses of CRT tube will get darker and darker until the tv actual pictures barely it is watchable anymore.Contrast,Brightness and Colors adjusting more will help some.But u have to take this tv aparts and take a Flat scerw driver turn up a little bit more of the tv HV-(high voltage) SCREEN button on the FBT-(flyback transformer) to make any big differences of the CRT tube brightnesses.The FBT-(flyback tranformer) is the big block of plastic with a red wire with a black cap hook up to the tv CRT-(tv tube).This adjustment on of the FBT,HV-SCREEN button will help the tv CRT-(tv tube) last another year or two.

My 61" hitachi rear proj has a very dark picture.


It sounds that lamp in TV is weak and not throwing enough light to bright the screen for good image.
How old is this TV and did you replaced its Lamp recently?
If lamp has not been replaced yet or in last 2-3 years, replace it.

# 1 above you have covergence problems ,there is a service flash from rca to fix your fault,ask your tv shop. fault # 2 above turn off the color and adjust your screen settings for a grey picture,set brightness and contrast to middle settings. # 3 fault read #1 cause if your auto focus will not correct you require service there is a harness connector that looses connection and causes several fualts on the 52" rca's you can repair the fault but if you miss the harness replacement you will do it again.

RCA 32V420T 32" TV


This RCA set uses the CTC187BD chassis. Look on the back of the set and to the right of the cable connector you will see 2 controls sticking out, one on top of the other. The top control is for focus and the bottom one is screen, or overall brightness. If these controls have been turned clockwise then you will have a bright, fuzzy picture with white lines (retrace lines) through it. Tune in a channel with white letters on the screen and turn the top (focus) control until the letters are crisp and sharp. Go into the menu and turn the contrast and brightness all the way down, and then turn the bottom control (screen) until you can just see the picture, just above the point where the picture is too dark to see. Go back into the menu and reset the contrast and brightness and the picture will be back to perfect.

Colors are distorted, brightness excessive


You may have a bad Fly Back transformer. The focus and screen(brightness) controls are located on this transformer. Some of the new RCA's have had problems with this transformer. If the screen control opens up the picture may either go dark or light which would cause your problem. Also a bad Picture tube could cause this. It shouldn't since the tv is not very old though. I've seen a few new ones go bad. Stargazer
