Question about RCA F36450 36" TV

1 Answer

Picture blurry When I turn on my RCA F36450 the picture is very dim for about 30 seconds, then gets bright, also after it brightens up like it should be, the edges get blurry,blurrier, and blurrier for about 10 to 15 seconds the super clear for about 10 seconds then starts over again. I did recently take it to a small tv shop because the tv went completely out and would not turn on. They fixed it, but shortly later, (after my 60 day warranty), this problem arose. Any suggestions? I install business alarms and also build custom PC's so I am tech savvy if you can tell me what to replace or repair. Thanks sl

    C-Dog...... would this make the picture turn blurry for about 10 seconds then turn super clear for about ten seconds? Also its not so bad that I cant watch tv on it but I definitely have trouble reading my cable guide. also what would cause it to be very dim for the first 20-30 seconds when I turn it on? does the flyback transformer have an adjustment knob or screw? Appreciate the help!

What was replaced by the repair shop? The blurriness may be out of focus. If so, the focus is controled by the flyback transformer. That connects to the picture tube at the top (anode cap).

I have a Samsung 55in curved TV. It has auto dimming. In the evening with the lights out it dims to where it is difficult to see the picture. Can I get rid of the auto dimming?


If the brightness on your TV changes automatically (randomly dims and brightens), you may need to adjust the:
  • Eco Sensor function.
  • - And / Or -
    • Energy Saving function.
    The Eco Sensor and Energy Saving functions adjust the brightness of the TV to reduce power consumption.
    • When you set the Energy Saving function to Auto, the TV changes its brightness automatically depending on what you are watching on the TV.
    • When you set the Eco Sensor to On, the TV changes its brightness automatically depending on the brightness of the room.

Put lights on picture brightens put lights off picture dims


Go to the menu, then select PICTURE or something similar. Then turn off "dynamic" or "automatic" on screen brightness.

The dynamic helps you save energy and always looks about the same contrast ratio. without, it seems too bright in the dark. It is actually a feature of higher priced televisions.

How do I turn up the brightness on a HP Probook 6550b?


PLEASE RATE ME!
go to the search icon under start. search brightness. it will tell you step by step what to do.
Every laptop is different, so adjusting the brightness or contrast on your laptop may vary from the steps provided on this page. However, understanding the process of how to adjust the brightness or contrast will help you change your settings.
Most laptops adjust their brightness and other settings using the function key in conjunction with another key. For example, pressing and holding the function key (abbreviated as "Fn") and pressing the up or down arrow keys as shown in the picture below, increases and decreases the brightness.

Turn up contrast to 95 and turn down brightness accordingly. If it is oddly dim, you may have a problem with the backlight.

Picture is dim and blurry


The screen probably needs to be degaussed, which will require either a degausser or a technician. Try turning the television off, and then unplugging it from the wall outlet. Then replug after 30 seconds and turn it back on. Also, try plugging any cables from a cable or satellite box into another set of in-ports on the back. If the problem persists, the screen needs to be degaussed.

Problems with brightness on the hitachi 50v810


Yes, they dim as they age, and you've done well to get 3 years out of one.
Projection TV makers charge an arm and a leg for their replacement lamps. They make it easy to do but as a result the custom lamp assy is expensive. The trick is to just buy the bulb for your model TV from any number of us aftermarket sources at a fraction of the lamp price and install it in the old lamp yourself. really easy.

RCA D32F750T TV


Did you adjust the two controls on the new flyback? The top one is almost always the focus control and the bottom is the G2/screen control (brightness) If you adjust the G2 do it until the picture looks normal, too high and you will get retrace lines through the picture.
