Plano tv samsung

Adjust the brightness until it starts making the black in the picture slightly milks and back it off slightly
Adjust the contrast so that the whitest whites show detail, too much contrast and they disappear
Adjust colour to suit, start with it half way, look at flesh tones on a news reader as a guide and adjust sharpness so you can see detail but not so that there are false or visible edges around things

I have a sony trinitron 36in tv, the screen works fine, colours are all great, no flickering or random shapes at all, its just a little blurry around edges, especially small text, its very blurry and...

it is very easy you just need a very small straight edge screwdriver

you should try to adjust sharpness setting with on screen adjustment first

if tv is too old tube might be going "soft" and sharp focus might not be able to be fully achieved anymore

good luck

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.

Seems to me you should have to contact a technician to adjust manually the circuit side of it. Usually the screen and focus control knob on the flyback to adjust the settings.

Screen adjustments??

On the remote, if you use the right and left keys on the pad with the OK sign in the middle, it will adjust the screen to several sizes including Cinema, 16:9, 4:3, Zoom, etc. I, personally, use 16:9 because I, like you, need to see the ticker symbols at the bottom. I hope this helps.

Samsung Projection HDTV BLURRY!

Each projection set has focus controls in back, usually they don't move or go out of focus unless someone moves it, but in your case if you open the back you will see a focus block with 6 knobs 3 are for screen,I would highly recommend that you don't move this. Look for the focus and you will have to set each with the one color. Cover the other two and adjust.

How to get rid of a black screen on my tv. sound is ok

If you mean that you get a black box, with a little of the picture visible around the edges, then your closed captions are on and set to TEXT. This puts a black box on the screen about 10 seconds after changing the channel. Go into the menu and turn off the closed captions and the picture will be back to normal.

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.

News ticker off bottom of screen, how to adjust?

sounds like its stretched out just a bit. Do you feel comfortable with messing around inside where theres 100s of volts??? if you do then in the vert curcuit theres a small control called the vert height control right on the printed curcuit board. adjust it slightly so you can see that full pic but not the black partm of the pic. I WOULD HIGHLY RECOMEND thaT if you have no experience with this then leave it to a pro as afterv all they will charge you a minumum beanch charge to adjust the set for you Im sure as it is a minor thing to do. good Luck
