Question about Standard (CRT) Televisions
Hi, thank you for responding to my post so promptly! The make is General Electric and the model number showing on the back is 31GT660. The back of the tv has the following buttons: (Polarity - +) (Strength off, low, high) Picture Tilt / and S-Video. There is also the following number: 31GT660YX3. Again, the television is too dark and shadowy. I've already tried to adjust all color options and other options available.
If you are comfortable working inside the set, I can suggest the following:
1) Open up the back and locate the flyback transformer (part with large red wire coming out the top). There should be 2 adjustment posts on the back of it.
2) adjust the top one slightly clockwise as you are facing ht back of the TV. This should cause the overall picture to brighten. Don't turn it too much as you will then see the "retrace" lines.
3) Adjust the lower one to focus the picture.
That should help a bit. If not, then the picture tube is probably at the end of its life. Keep me posted with your results.
