    I have been servicing TVs for years. One thing I learned,
    when I see a picture, I can usally tell if the picture tube is getting "soft"
    (below normal emission). When I see this in TVs that are not very old,
    I will check the picture settings (via menu), and sure enough, almost every
    time, the "Contrast/Picture" and/or "Brightness" is turned up full or almost
    full (high). I always reduce the settings and tell the customer. Most times
    this is the default setting from the factory, and you know what that
    means? Shorten the life of the TV requires replacement sooner.
