Hi:
You may have a problem with the inverters in the unit, they are responsible for lighting up the back panel. Check or have checked the power supply voltage to the inverters, should be around 18-24 volts DC. Also leaky capacitors on the power supply will cause this issue as well as leaky or puffy capacitors on the inverter.

Color is grate on my Sharp 26" TV. However night scenes have become almost too dark to see. I have tried to adjust the settings but no improvement. Is this a fixable problem? Using Comcast Cable a


Check 'brightness' and 'contrast' settings in (usually) 'picture' menu. Use a recording (DVD etc.) of a dark scene to adjust the picture. My TV (not Sharp) has several pre-programmed picture settings. If yours has that, maybe one of them will be good. Otherwise, use manual settings.

Color settings for an older panasonic tv trying to adjust the color setting for this older panasonic tv, it seems the dark colors are really dark and there faces are really red. Model# CT-32g19j


This is not a projection set; but a picture tube set or CRT (Cathode Ray Tube) technology. If the set is working correctly you should be able to go into the menu and set the color, brilliance and contrast to get the right color and picture intensity. If the controls don't give you what is correct viewing it may be over age and need an adjustment of the internal chroma circuits - which may cost more than the set is worth since it is quite old. Hope this helsp.

WD 73835 has ghosting images during dark or red scenes


Make sure your contrast isn't set too high. Most ghosting is caused by either contrast, brightness or tint issues. Try adjusting these settings. Also check if there is a Dynamic contrast setting for your TV as well as this can cause ghosting also.

Voire 46" plasma tv- best color settings, to much white


The proper way to set flat screen tv's is opposite of old school CRT tv. First, find a movie with dark scenes and pause on a really dark part. Now set brightness only high enough to see some detail - no more. then go to a really bright scene and set contrast just high enough for good brightness. You may need to go back and forth a few times to get good setting.

Best solution to improve picture quality. Screen


Try to turn the contrast down. It can really help out a lot. If this is not working look up your tv's best settings. CNET.com has some great settings under the forums.

If all else fails but a calibration dvd and go thru the settings. Some dreamworks and disney dvds even have them right under the disc extras. Hope I could help!

by the way, remember to cut some of the light in your room if it is well lit. It will help make the picture look better as your eyes can distiguse the light and darks better

hi polly ... I assume you are using a CRT monitor ... if you are then the monitor is simply showing its age ... CRT tubes use a electron gun which over time looses its perfromance... there is really nothing you can do except to replace the monitor.... although if your graphics card has a gamma correction setting you might be able to improve the brightness but at a cost of other settings like contrast...
