Re: tv still dim after adjusting
Sounds like you may have gotten a pwer surge and blew out the regulator in the set. If you know how to trouble shoot regulator curcuitds then it could be as simple as the str type regulator. If you dont then open the set and see what module the set has it would start with a 9-something as it should be inside the back cover and then contact http://www.tristatemodule.com and see what they charge to repair the entire pcb or the exchange of the module. As Zenith sets are made to be repaired in house by quilifyed repair stations IN hOUSE. Good luck to ya.

This could be one of two things. The backlight is dimming. There are tube lights in the unit and they slowly burn out. The way to tell is if the picture turns a shade of orange slowly comes on to full brightness. It could also be the inverter. The inverter is the board that powers those lights.
Hello David It sounds that the back light inverter board, and back light CCFL lamps to your TV need to be checked. It will be best to contact any service technician, because to check its back light CCFL lamps, you must disassemble the display panel, a very skilled work indeed. If you are sound in electronics, you can check it. If you wish to know more http://electronicshelponline.blogspot.com/ check this link. It has details. Pull up older posts there by its left side bar, or see it in 'Timeslide' option.
if picture is still veiwable but dark, try to do some menu adjustment in contast, brightness. picture temp. if still dark or dim the problem maybe is the power supply filtering capacitors. worst is the t-con assembly.
yes! those are the screen and focus adjustments. 3 for screen, 3 for focus. try this. go in menu....turn down color, brightness, contrast all they way down. you should then have no picture, but in your case a little red. then go to back of tv and turn those 3 screen adjustments all the way down. slowly turn the screens back up until you get barely a picture. because remember, your brightness and contrast is all the way down. the picture should be dim but seeable and with red, green, blue adjustments, make it a black and white picture. when balanced..... turn up color , brightness, contrast in menu. enjoy!
You don't say anything about the brand, but most have a menu or setup button on the remote (and TV) which give an on-screen display of functions available. You should see one for picture adjustments. Perhaps the projection bulb is getting old and dim. This is another possibility.
There should be a setting in the menu of the TV to turn off the auto dim feature (used for adjusting the brightness of the picture depending on ambient room lighting) I don't have a Sony LCD here with me to walk you through the menu settings, but I am certain it is there somewhere. (Chased this issue for the wife who had the same displeasure you're having)
If this is a CRT-based TV and it's been played most of the time, you may have a bad picture tube, especially if strong red colors bleed to the right. CRT's dim with use, unlike LCD or plasma. But it could also be trouble in the video circuits - none of this falls into the DIY category, unfortunately. High voltage involved, unless you're comfortable around it and want to try turning up the screen controls inside the TV. If you do, let me know - but "no response at all" from the external adjustments points to a more serious problem.
How many years is your TV now? Usually TV has its life span, there comes a time that it happens. And need to look for a technicians, cause some of theme can still be repair by adjusting the brightness inside your TV.
