Bedroom TV issue

Hi All,

2012 Grayhawk FK. When I watch TV in the bedroom, it is hard to see the picture some times. Looks like the TV needs to be canted down.

Has one done this or have some ideas?

Thanks.

what brand TV, my Samsung did the same thing. There is a setting in the menu to adjust for eye level in relation to the TV. look for that if you have a Samsung.

I used this to mount the TV. Easy on/off. Works great. http://www.jensenrvdirect.com/flat-p...extension.html

In the 31FS the TV is in mounted to the door frame of the upper cabinet. The cabinet is in the slide. If the slide is closed and you are laying in bed, the tv is almost not visible due to the angle. When the slide is out, it is better. However, I think the TV needs to be angled a bit to better view it. I was going to see if the bracket could be shimmed or modified to fix this. I was not aware of the TV having a setting to help with this, I thought the screen type was to blame.

If your mount doesn't cant down, you could loosen the mount bolts and stick a spacer behind it and tighten it back down. The thickness of the spacer will need to be enough to cant it enough. You could by a stack of plastic or wood spacers at Home Depot or Lowes for $1.00 and use as many as required.
Best regards,
Doug

It's a RCA. I did check but no such settings.

Yes, I was thinking the same thing.

Thanks. Will look at it but was looking for something to use with the existing door.

Yup, went this route today. Seems to be working with 3 of wedges on each side.
