Hi campbell672,

Yes the bulb is already on its peak burning life that's why the picture is dark. Click it here for the replacement. Used only genuine bulb for your unit for best picture quality.

Screen is dark and contrast and brightness are up to max, can a new bulb be put into the monitor?


To replace the crt picture tube will be an expensive exercise as they are not bulbs as such but the entire screen needs to be replaced as they are a complete unit.

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.

Picture getting dark


My jvc 27" tv was so dark I could hardly see any night scenes, even with the bright all the way on. If you push the sleep button, let go, then hold down the video and display (together), the service menu will come on. Scroll down to #7 (too dark) and adjust the brightness there. Works immediately. Good luck.

The picture shows dark


Hi there

Take out the Projector's lamp and check for any black marks ( almost looks like veins ) on the inside of the bulb.

If you spot anything on the lamp , your lamp will need replacement.

If you can't see anything - then you might be in for a new Mainboard.

Very expensive exercise !
