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).

My TV brightness is very low? It's a telefunken.


Maybe your light blub inside TV is dimmed down due to long time usage. This can be replaced. Also check light settings in the option menu.

Screen is too dark


with a flashlight at the back of the set often times there is an adjustment you can make WITHOUT having to open the set!!!

look for a little hole in the back of the plastic cabinet labeled SCREEN then with a flat screwdriver holding only the plastic handle, insert it into the hole and SLOWLY rotate until the screen brightens up until it is watchable.

This is compensating for age in the picture tube. you may get a few day or a few more years! of a much better picture.

If you start seeing some thin lines on the screen then back off you have gone too far. Do this adjustment with the brightness and contrast controls on the menu turned up all the way.

it is also safe to play with the focus adjustment right next to the screen if thing seem a little blurry. you will need two people one to watch from a distance for best picture.

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.
