Re: picture got bigger

Yes, you can adjust the picture by using your remote going to settings, or "Adjust" when your t.v. turns on and off by itself could have'ft to do with nasty weather near you, or the cord is loose and it needs to be pushed in all the way.

Whenever the screen gets bright my tv turns off

Your TV goes out as you increase its brightness I thinks. It won't go out till a certain limit of brightness and will go out after that. You just note the level of brightness when your TV shut downs. If it is from the start itself, it will be due to problem in the ABL [Automatic Btightness Limiter] section, which is at the printed circuit board and has complex circuits related with it, that you can't rectify yourself, as it needs some skill and ability to follow the schematic diagram of your TV, and some solering concepts, and you should have to go for an experienced technician.
If it shuts somwhere near when the brightness control comes to its middle or so, it is due to an advance in the screen voltage, that you can adjust it at home. For that you should open the back cover of your TV. All care and precautions must be taken when we works with an electrical equipment. After open the back cover you just locate where the screen adjustment control is. It may be sometimes in the Line Output Transformer, other wice known as [LOT], or its picture tube base card itself soldered into. If it is with 'LOT' it will be marked ans "Screen", and will be an adjustable potmeter. It can be adjusted with the help of a screw driver of even by bare hand; if you have dare and experience to do. If it is in the picture tube basc card, there will be a mark printed as 'screen'.
Keep the tv opened, switch on it. Wait for some time, say upto 20 seconds, after the screen on your tv is alive, advance its brightness control to the cut point. Just do it a little reverse and see whether the screen comes alive or not. If not, switch off the TV again. Reduce the screen voltage a liitle behind by turning its preset to a little, so that you can see the screen again. Then advance the brightness control and see whether the screen cuts off this time or not. if it cuts off this time also, the fault is in the above said ABL circuit. You should get it repaired by an experienced tecnician. never use the TV at this condition for more. It may effect the emission of the picture tube. ok.

Picture image does not look full when showing people

There is a service menu adjustment. I have seen several of these sets with bad components in the horizontal width control circuit. maybe your other set has a width problem. put both on the same channel. like cnn with the ticker on the bottom. what is the difference in size?
the width adj. procedure is: with the set off. use the remote, enter. MENU>5>VOL+>POWER . the set will come on in the service mode. then with the menu adj. buttons you can step threw the service menu to H.WIDTH adj. until full picture. also VERT. HEIGHT. when you are done adjusting make sure you press the mute button and watch the word WRITE flash from green to red or you won't save your adjustments.

How do you adjust the picture? Mine is zoomed in

Is this set using a cable or satellite box? I looked at the owners manual and did not see any format adjustments. If it is hooked to a box, check the settings there.

Vertical Stretch

You need to adjust "vertical height" in the service program. You need to put the set in "service mode" to do this adjustment. If you google "enter service mode RCA F32665" you should find the procedure. It will be listed in abbreviated letters such as VERT SIZE or VERT HT. Follow the instructions for entering service mode and saving the data closely!! The data you change will be listed as a number between 1 and 63. The number will only need to reduced by a small amount and you can still see the picture behind the data and watch it shrink as you adjust the number down.Always burn the new number to memory (if required) before exiting service mode. Good luck
