    The Sony KDF-50WE655's picture is dim despite the brightness turned all the way up/

  • Karlp327 Oct 14, 2008

    None of the suggestions helped resolve the issue. Sony support had me reset the TV turning it off for five minutes and thenby unplugging the unit for one minute. They also had me plug directly into the wall. I am having a technician come out.

    Just to let anyone looking this fix up. It was the light bulb. The extended warranty was handy this time. The technician was there all of ten minutes and the TV was operational again.

    One observation that I did not expect was how the bulb dimmed and did not stop working completely. You lern something new everyday I guess.

    Go through the instruction below :


    What it is: Also called black level, brightness actually adjusts how dark the black sections of the picture appear.

    What it does: Excessive brightness can result in a two-dimensional, washed-out look with reduced color saturation. images with brightness set too low lose detail in shadows, and distinctions between dark areas disappear in pools of black.

    How to set it: Turn up the brightness to full, then reduce until just at the point you notice a loss of shadow detail - for example, when people's eyes disappear into the depths under their brows, then you've set brightness too low. Some plasma, LCD, DLP, and LCoS TVs won't ever look black, so you'll need a setup disc to properly configure their brightness.


    What it is: Also called picture or white level, contrast controls the intensity of the white parts of the image and determines the overall light output of the display.

    How to set it: Display a still image from DVD of a white object with some visible details - such as someone wearing a white button-up shirt or a shot of a glacier from the Ice Age DVD. Adjust the control up all the way, then reduce it until you can make out all the details in the white (such as buttons on a shirt or cracks in the ice). In general, TVs look best when contrast is set between 30 and 50 percent.


    What it is: Also called saturation, this control adjusts how intense the colors look.

    What it does: When there's too much color, the set looks garish and unrealistic. It's most noticeable with reds, which are often accentuated (pushed) by the TV's color decoder. On the other hand, too little color diminishes the impact of the picture, making it look drab. Setting color to zero results in a black-and-white image.

    How to set it: If available find an image of someone with light, delicate skin tones, preferably a close-up of a face, on a DVD. Turn up the color control until it looks like the person has sunburn, then reduce it until the skin looks natural, without too much red. If the rest of the colors look too drab, you can increase color slightly at the expense of accurate skin tones.

    ALSO make sure that the power supply or the voltage is OK. If you still have the problem its a problem with the lamp and you need a technican for the same.

    I told you that you need a technician to come to your place in case the above things do not work. Hope your issue gets resolved soon.

I have a 42 inches LCD TV and my son threw a hard object to it. It has lines from top to bottom and I want to know if it is fixable or not. Thanks, Claudia.

I'm sorry to be the one to tell you that once the screen is broken, is better to buy a new TV because the repair might exceed the price of a new one.
