Re: picture

I believe that the board/chip which controls the LCD is defective. I have never seen this but this is the only thing that I know that would explain your problem. Probably going to need a tech to look at it to verify.

Screen getting dark

If you have never changed the lamp this is more than likely the issue, as the tv ages the lamp looses brightness. Most lamps are rated for 3000-5000 hrs of use. Replace the lamp assembly part # UX21514 and you will notice a much brighter picture. You do not mention if the tv plays the right colors on the entire screen. These have had light engine issues.
Good luck with it

Screen goes dull at times

The dulling picture really sounds like a lamp failing. You would need the sony lamp xl-2100u
The ghost image may be easier to fix, sometimes as lcds age you will get a slight shift in a color. deep in the sony menu there is a parameter (menu-setup-imageshift) that will give you 3 levels of correction, this may solve this issue.

The picture is not very bright

Good Day;

If this is a rear projection you may need to clean the lenses and mirror and try adjusting the contrast. If it is a direct view your picture tube maybe going soft (bad). If it's a Phillips/ Magnavox change CRT coolant.

Good Luck, big IRISH.

Tune up for Hitachi 60FX32B

Remove rear cardboard cover....can you see tops of red / green /
blue tubes ? Clean lens' with soft , dry cloth......Do you smoke ?
If not , replace back. Picture should now be clearer but not
necessarily brighter.......Next, remove front speaker grill and find
the RGB focus / screen adjust block....turn RGB screen controls
SLIGHTLY clockwise to achieve more brightness....not too much
or you will have retrace lines in background of picture.......Let me know after these steps are done........T.

I have have this TV for almost 3 have a shaded area on the left side

The dark side of the screen causes of the lamp alignment or prism glass alignment. This is critical you have to consult your LG technician to do this. But if you have any background o repair consult the service manual. Please careful not to touch the prism quarts so that you maintained the clarity of picture and brightness on the screen.

you "tooled around with the convergence board" well this chassis has several problems if the convergence doesnt hold replace both stks resolder around that area per tosh tech bulletin the bright problem is probably the hyper module all toshs should be checked with toshiba website to see if they were part of the recalls for power supply caps

Darkening tv picture

The Picture tubes(not bulbs) do and probably are weak. There replace should only be done by a trained service person. One reason would be the hI Voltage issues related to the crt's, as these tubes store alot of HI voltage even after its unplugged for a while, and another reason would be that these tube can very easy implode then explode and that wouldnt be a pretty sight. Third would be the alighnment involved after all three tubes are replace. There ba cross hatch generator and alot of time involved with the alighnment. Please seek a pro to assit you when your ready to spend at least 900 TO 1000 bucks. Good Luck
