Re: to fix or not

Could be many things but if your not a tech you shopuld call a pro to assist you with this repair, as a TV set is no where someone should be tinkering in. If you know electronics, the first thing to check on if you hqave high voltage otr not . If you fo check with a scop the PIP board as they go bad all the time in this set. Also capacitors in the sweep supply goes bad all the time also/ good Luck

Why is screen so dark

Good question and many have tried to deal with this. Sony suggests you 1) go to the manual for this particular set and thereby adjust settings or 2) try replacing the lamp.,63345,63582/c/65,66/kw/rear%20projection

Here is an link to a pdf of the online manual:

There does not appear to be a consensus on how to fix the problem. Not everyone appears to experience it. Some manual adjustments, others try cabling swaps which abandon HDMI.

Copy down the original setting of any feature before you change it. That enables you to back track out of any trouble.

Others have suggested turning off the automatic dimming feature that taps a light sensor which detects room light.

1) Press the "Menu" button on your remote to load the Sony Bravia system menu.
2) Use the cursor keys to navigate to and select the "Picture Settings" option.
3) Scroll to the "Ambient Sensor" option from the Picture Settings menu and select the "Off" setting.
Adjust the set, (take a look at Advanced settings.)

Notice that there is a reference to a problem with the E3000 model on the following page:

Bear in mind that the first two suggestion were directly from Sony.

Others have had success by turning off in the Advanced settings, the Advanced Contrast Enhancer.

Sony will probably have you unplugging attached devices to check the affect or making swaps with cables. Be sure to check your cable configuration against the what the manual uses.

There is no single fix to this.

My Mitsubishi VS 50703 is fed from a DVR into input Ant A. I get sound, but no picture, until I press the 'menu' button on the TV remote; then the picture appears in the PIP window for a few...

Try resoldering the vertica IC. Very common problem. When vertical drops out the CRTs go into blanking ( shutdown no picture) but the menu and on screen displays will still work. Resoldering the IC will usually solve the issue.

Sound but no picture

You should be able to use the device button on the remote control. If this does not work, try going into the menu and disable the home theater mode. The home theater mode locks the TV to input 1. I believe that it is in the advanced menu from the main menu.

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue.
