Generally, you right click on a blank spot on your desk top; personalize, and reset your picture to stretch, or tile or as you have it center.
Another choice is download Picasa from Google. It is a great picture catalogue program that allows you to choose your desktop background.

Why i cant change my background in my laptop ..?? how can i change it??


There are multiple ways you can do this.

method 1: Exit out of all programs. With mouse on empty desktop, right click. A little white window should come up that will have different options. Click anything along the lines of "Personalize". Continue exploring the options until you reach an area that says "desktop background" or something to that effect. You will have a choice of different backgrounds that come with the computer, usually scenes in nature or graphic designs and so forth. Click "Set" or "apply" or "save" or whatever your option is.

method 2: For a custom background, go to google and search images. Search whatever image you want football team logos, nature scenes, etc. Select your image by clicking. Select "Click to see full size image". Make sure the image is zoomed in all the way. Right click in the center of the image. A window will come up with options. Click "Set image as background". Viola. You have any picture as your background. Make sure you use a large image though, if you care that it covers the whole screen. It may be blurred, if it is not large enough or in high enough resolution. You can do the same process for photos of your own that are downloaded on your computer.

I am repairing my sister TV {Toshiba TN61X81}. The original was no picture and with sound. Upon troubleshooting the vertical deflection, ihad move the screen control for all 3 crts to see the horinzontal...


The easiest way I have found to set the screen controls is to tune into an old black and white show, turn the green up until you see retrace then slowly turn it down until it just dissapears then adjust the blue and red for a true black and white picture.

You have a completely different problem. The screen voltage for the blue picture tube is slightly too high on your set. This will put fine lines in the background of the picture, called retrace lines. This is very common and easy to correct. Remove the front speaker cover and the access panel behind it. Look inside and you will see a black box with six controls, each control having a little white glue on it. This is the Focus/Screen block. Three controls are labeled Focus and three are labeled Screen. The screen control in the center is for green but I am not sure if the screen control on the left or right is for blue for your model. With the TV on, set it to VIDEO 1 but do not connect anything to the VIDEO 1 jacks. This will produce a pure dark picture, showing any faint lines in the background. Choose one of the screen controls and increase (turn clockwise) it slightly. If the blue lines do not get brighter it means you are turning the red screen control, so put it back where it was and choose the other screen control. When you find the blue screen control, decrease (turn counter-clockwise) it until just when the blue lines are gone. If you want you can check that the red and green screen controls are set to just below the point where their faint lines are visible. When done, replace the panels and your picture will be back to perfect.

MikeNJ1964 was exactly right! I have a Sony KP-65WV600 that had horizontal green lines that showed when the picture was darker. I had to remove 3 screws on the right and left side of the tv holding in the speakers...carefully pop out the middle panel from the clips holding it in....remove 4 screws from the cardboard in the middle and remove the cardboard. I then saw the six screws. The adjustment screws were the three below. I turned the middle screw until the lines dissapeared. I tried the left screw and blue lines appeared which I then adjusted away.
THANKS a bunch. SAVED me money!!!

Sony Trinitron picture turning green hues


Nowadays CRT's do not have good quality shadow masks anymore. After heating up a little they can give a so called "blooming" effect giving a blue an yellow leaf effect large over the screen. Reason nonparallelity in deformation of the shadow mask.

Horizontal white lines across top of TV screen


Hi I had the same problem. Broken white lines across the top of the screen. This is called overscan. You need to go into the Setup menu, other settings. 16:9 overscan needs to be on. Hope this helps.It solved our problem.

Hitachi 50 Rear Projection color TV


the easiest way is to turn the color all the way down to zero. Then notice the overall color of the screen, if it doesnt appear as a good black and white picture you will have to adjust the screens. To do that you have to remove the speaker grill cover and the small access panel, then depending on the chassis you will see a small square with 6 dials on it 3 on top and 3 on the bottom it will have screen stamped on it. adjust those 3 untill your screen appears the best black and white picture as possible. Now if your chassis only has 3 dials on the sgaure control box those are focusdont adjust them. . then the 3 CRT boards will have the dials you need adjust those for the best black and white picture. when your satisfied that you have a good black and white picture. then turn your color back up and adjust the tint.Let me know if you need more assistance.

Sound but no picture


If PIP works, have you tried to swap pictures. You may have a tuner out.
