One more problem, my TV is getting kinda dark. Could it be that my bulb is getting old and needs to be replaced? I am having to put my contrast on 100% to make it look good(which it does, but when i first got the TV 50% was bright enough).
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.
