Question about Curtis-Mathis CM32010 TV

Open Question

CM320205 no picture, 6 yr old tv. what is warrantee on CM picture tube?

For past 2 weeks, when set came on, it would be mostly dark with sporatic flicks of light & lines, on lower portion of screen. After 30 minutes of being on, or immediately with a light tap on the left side of rear housing, picture would appear. Seems as though it was a faulty picture tube. Now, at present, TV is dark. probably tube is blown. But, 6 year old set with blown picture tube seems unusual. Any thoughts?

Hi There!

How long before it shows the picture and how long before it switches off again? Is the picture good when on?

I'm trying to improve the picture- seems to be TOO DARK- tv is 10 yr old ser3 935351541- ihave tried color adj etc


Rca Screen Control These sets have screen control adjustment usually located behind the speaker grill(pops off -velcro or press tabs) and convergence front board. There are 6 contols on a black molded assembly about 31/2"x21/2" square. adjust only the top controls marked "Screen R G B" the bottom ones are focus
Method:
-turn on set and let warm up for 30 min at least
-switch tv to blank unused video input channel
-adjust each control in turn until you see the picture glow (with the corresponding color) and slightly back off the control - repeat for each color - this will increase screen brightness and ballance your color
Hope this helped.

Backlighting issues on tv set (I think). Screen goes extremely dark after about 30 min. of viewing. Does not return to orginial brightness unless unit is left off for a long period of time


Lcd tv sets are lit by small glass florescent tubes called cold cathodes and, are powered by: ballasts called inverters... these go out just like your office florescent lighting the parts can be purchased online from electronic parts houses and, are easily replaced

17 yr. old 35" RCA loses color intermittently. Picture & sound ok


Three guns Red Blue and Green in the picture tube of an old CRT set. If one of the guns goes out it effects that color. Sounds like one of the guns inside of the tube is going out, To costly to replace for such an old antilog set that will have to have a convertor box next month anyway.
