I have a 55in Samsung Dlp the color looks good but a little dark can't see picture if the movie is dark


You might need a new bulb, the bulbs get dim as there life diminishes. Replace the bulb to get a bright picture. Do not use cheap bulbs, an OEM bulb for that tv should be $60+. . Cheap clone bulbs will work but will fail a lot sooner

I have a 50 in RCA older HDTV that is experiencing a darkness in a V pattern starting in the middle of the bottom of the screen. I am told that it is not the bulb but possibly a circuit board? HELP


i have seen a few of these and not seen that cuased by a curcit failure.(OF coarse nobody has seen it all) I would suspect something in the optical path. what i mean by this.... the bulb shines light through a color wheel into the engine then through a lens bouncing off a mirror then on the screen. now is the picture visable through the dark area? their could be something inside. blocking the lens(dirt,bug,fly) or there might be a broke mirror. also the screen could of got wet and damaged.. dont know exactly but these are my best guess without seeing the picture... let me know how it goes

I have sound with a dark gray screen. The lamp indicator light is not flashing. do i need a replacement bulb?


Bulbs are expensive. Hundreds of dollars. First check your settings in your menu. Start by setting the contrast to a brighter setting. If all of your settings are messed up there will be a reset for your picture settings in your menu. If this doesn't solve your issue call your local audio/video installer for help.

I want to buy a second hand rear projection tv, around in 100 pounds is available in the market locally in london from private sellers i am worried about the lamp life, because its expensive to purchase...


an original lamp (original brand name of the tv) can be "alive" there for some years. if you want to buy a tv an suspect that the one is good or not just turn around that area one or a couple of weeks if still working with a great bright and crispy color is good symptom> (some re-manufacture lamps just work a couple of hours even new)
The lamp's life is a question mark in this technology (optimistic ingeniers (brands) count these hours as 1, 2 ,3, (thousand hours) (actually some manufactures count the time ""it is a simple timer the microprocessor can manage pretty well, but is not the mean of a good o bad lamp""
but i recommend my customers to have a spare lamp (just in case you are watching a beatles show) and blowns, you have it in the garage and (consulting the user manual) you change it a as regular bulb in your house.
But the lamp life "and this is the tip": (only two states)
  1. the picture tends to look dark or dimm (is logical because the high intensity the lamp works tends to create a tiny black surface on the heater and tends to consume more current and the answer is a dark picture as i told you already.
  2. the lamp blown (of course the tv cannot work and the LED "lamp" turns on or keep steady on the front panel with a complete dark screen.

Dark picture on lg dlp tv


Did you use a generic replacement? Many TVs have a dark picture after replacing the original lamp with a generic. The other issue I've encountered are TVs that have been exposed to cigarette smoke will develop a dark, discolored picture over a relatively short time.

It sounds like you need to buy a new bulb, this is what usually happens when the bulb is burning out this bulbs are made to last 6000-8000 life hours

Magnavox Projection


What is model number? A magnavox 51MP392 is a CRT rear projection type and doesn't use a bulb (unless he was refering to the CRT's as bulb). And they are prohibitively expensive.
