I have an old Sharp flat-tube tv. The picture is bad, it's very dim even though the brightness setting is all the way up.

If the "contrast" is also turned up, then, the tube is toast and needs replacement. A local repair shop can quote you so you can determine if it's cheaper to purchase a new t.v. or not.

Tv is on with no picture or sound, only 4 months old!!

The power supply regulator board to your set has the fault. If you try to open the set, or try to repair it by yourself, the warranty will void. The set must have warranty as it is new. Why do you spend for it? Just contact the nearest authorised service center for Sceptre. the components in this set will be very hard to get from open electronic spare part market, and will costly too.

Visio gv42lfhdtv10a dim picture

There are tow main reasons for this fault. Both are related with its backlight itself. If the inverter transofrmer that dirives the CCFL backlight tubes have some short or voltage drop due to its varying drive frequency, the backlight tubes will not come up to bright as it should be. The second is, with weak CCFL tubes itself.
If you want to repair this by yourself, you must have some knolege in electronics, can follow the schematic diagrams of the set, tools to open your set and so on. Moreover, you must have patience and a concept of soldering. If you have all this, inform me by Fixya. I've the service manual to your set. I cannot send it to you without knowing Fixya. If you want to have it, the servcie manual, that contains all the details of internal fittings, exploded views, voltage charts, faunt cinding charts, etc; you must buy one amoung my Vizio services advertised by FixYa, and must provide your Email Address to me to send the PDF file to you. OK.

Just purchsed the tv yesterday at Best Buy. Some

Some of these new LCD and Plasma sets are very picky about the signal---I am in a room where I experienced the same problem--the OLD tube set had a perfect picture but the LCD had grainy and noisy pictures on some channels.

Before you assume it is a problem with the set (unlikely) contact your cable provider and have them come out---if the physical cable into the house is old they may have to replace it or do something else.

Let me know if you have questions--I am here to help.

After 6 sixs my samsung plasma HPN5039 picture has gone dim

I don't know how old your tv is but by saying dim makes me think you should look on the power supply for a few worn out capacitors. You need a cap tester to determine if the caps are weak, but most of the time you can tell if the cap is weak by a bulge at the top of the capacitor. This usually is the main problem for a dim backlight on a tv.

I have a 13 year old 32 inch RCA tv that has whitel verticale lines running thru it and a faded picture. can this be fixed?

Yes, a repair shop may be able to repair this. Now the other question would be do you want to pay a shop or replace the unit. Money wise, you would more than likely be better off with a new set. DO NOT TRY TO FIX YOUR SELF. the tube can hold 10-15K volts and kill. As for buy or replace. if you fix now may work for the longest time. Or could have another failure in a week. never know.

TV made a loud pop sound now picture is real dim.

Don't know much about the newer tv's but in the old days when they did that the guns at the back of the tube where on the way out.. my guess is the modern equivalent is need to check the vision card.

Very week meaning that the picture is really dim - not as bright as it used to be?
If this is so the Back Light Lamp Ballast or there are issues with the florescent tubes in the TV. Can be repaired if you wish to spend between $100 to 300 at a good service shop. Call around your area and get some estimates. A Good shop will give you them.

What would cause that is failure of some part (probably a filter capacitor) in the set's power supply. The usual cause is component stress due to manufacturers keeping their costs down by using parts that just barely can stand their operating voltages. (Higher rated parts would last longer, but would cost more.) Some parts are just a little too weak and break down. It's not unusual to have this kind of problem these days. The set would be repairable unless there was physical damage to the circuit board itself. You might have it looked at and get an estimate for the repair.
