Will calibration fix this? Or should i get a bulb replaced before getting it calibrated?

Sorry for the millions of questions. I'm an RPTV noob.
You have a CRT RPTV. The CRT provides the light so there is no bulb. What you're seeing is a sign that dust is reducing the output of the CRT so it's definitely due for a cleaning and calibration.
