The picture wouldn't come up so we opened the back and found a wire that is hanging loose and were not sure where its supposed to go...apparently it looks like it gives power for the picture bulb to work

BE CAREFULL!!! Is it a red wire with a suction cup on the end? If it is, it connects to the top of the picture tube (there is a little hole in the back of the tube at the top). Unplug the set first and under the suction cup you should see two little tabs. Turn the suction cup inside out to expose the little tabs and insert the two little tabs in the hole. You may have to sqeeze them together a little bit. After they are in the hole they should spring out and latch on to the edges of the hole. Let go of the suction cup and allow it to cover the hole and tabs and all. Hope this helps. Thanks and be carefull. This is the high voltage lead.

Pictures appears sharp, any writing such as captions, especially white are most unsharp. How do you focus a tv

No It cannot the settings are what they are.However Some Tv's have a little set of holes in the back of the set one saying HUE,FOCUS, and other different adjustments I do not DO NOT recommend Touching them without knowing what the Consquences might be.

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.

Check to see if the little button that the screen closes down on (which turns off the screen and only the screen) is stuck, or jammed under the little hole that it comes up. This button is about the size of a pin on most DVD Players4.gif, and is located very close to the screen on either side.

View Screen

Some cameras dont - did yours ever? Personally I prefer the viewfinder to peering at a screen especially in the bright light. But check out your manual for this - usually there is a more comprehensive manual as a PDF file on the CD>

Tv F27442

The TV does not have a reset button. If you have no picture and no sound, there is something wrong with the chassis. In this case the set should be serviced by someone experienced in the RCA CTC203 chassis. If you have no picture but do have sound, then it is possible that the 2 controls in the 2 little holes in the back of the set are not adjusted correctly. This is quite possible since you said you put a screwdriver in there and got a fuzzy picture. The control on the bottom is called "screen" and is the overall brightness of the picture and the control on top is called "focus" and is the sharpness of the picture.
