Question about RCA 20F511T TV

1 Answer

Tv turns itself off

Followed by a bright white/rainbow colored circle in the center of the black screen. the tv also makes a loud clicking sound while this is happening. i have to keep pressing off for the television to power down, and sometimes will not turn back on. this normally happens when there is a bright flash on the screen, then it freaks out. i have my contrast set to zero as any seems to make it worse... i hate this tv.

please help me!

thanks

How to change the 'Contrast' and 'Brightness' on the monitor screen


Bootup your computer and display your Windows Desktop. Make sure yourmonitor stays on for at least half an hour before you begin, so that itis properly warmed up.


Seta pure black image on the monitor so you can adjust the brightness. Toget a pure black image, do the following: Choose Start, then ControlPanel, then Display. This will open the Display Properties dialog box.Click the down arrow next to the representation of the desktop color inthe Color field. Choose black from the color palette, then click OK.


Maximizethe Brightness control on your monitor, then slowly reduce it until theblack of the image perfectly matches the black at the edge of thephysical screen. This puts the brightness at the proper setting.


Open a screen with a plain white background soyou can adjust the contrast. One of the best ways to do this is to open aword-processing document without any text in it. Gradually reduce the contrastsetting of your monitor until the white area of the screen begins to lookslightly gray or off-white. Then gradually increase the contrast until thewhite area on your monitor is pure white. This will give you the proper whitebalance. Now you've got your monitor ready for peak performance.

Hope this may help you solve your problem.

The t.v. has too much color


First set the color to 0, the TV should be in black and white. if there is a purple or rainbow color then your tube may be failing. Most default settings are when everything is half way(centered). If this dosen't correct the issue than there is an issue on your main board.
