Re: dark picture

I think you have a regulation problem and all the voltage supplies are lower than what they should be,the fact that the picture gets distorted is one thing it lead me to believe that is the problem.This can be caused by a loose conection in the power supply ,I would suggest not to use it until it gets repaired or it might become worst and more expensive.Be careful if you remove the back and try to repair it yourself.

Picture is dark

the problem is that the lopt is loosing power this can be due to a leak. in it there fore you will hear a hissing sound or the lopt is simply past its time. and will need to be replaced ( the lopt is a unit that sends power to the screen or in this case the globes the less the power the duller the picture)

good luck hope this helps

Brightness on VS-50605

The darkness shouldnt be that exspensive some trouble shooting and a few dollars should straighten that out. The screen however will cost a couple of hundred dollars, although that would still be cheap for a big screen, and that model does play exceptionall well when operating properly.

Aadjusting screen colors

They should be adjusted to set voltages. however it is best to shut the color level to the lowest setting then try t balance the screens to achieve the best black and white picture. then turn up your color level. Your brightness level should also be set to 50 % then when you adjust for the best B&W picture. You will have better color and brightness when you reset your color and brightness levels. Hope this helps.

Mitsubishi VS-6041- picture brightness not very bright

Hi Dawn,
The TV does have a screen control on each of the picture tubes ( there are 3 ) although I do suggest you have a qualified technician make the necessary adjustments as an improper adjustment can cause damage to the set. Should you deside to make these adjustments yourself, you'll need to remove the back ( or front in some sets) ( PRE-CAUTION, UNPLUG THE SET FROM THE WALL BEFORE PREFORMING ANY ADJUSTMENTS INSIDE THE SET ) The screen adjustments are located either on the bottom of each tube or in a group component located where the main High Voltage Wire ( large red wire from the black transformer on the deflection board ) is connected to. Look for a turn pot ( screw type adjustment ) that is marked SCREEN. When you locate it ( whether it be on each tube or in the group component ) turn it up only slightly and not to much, as excessive gain ( turning it up to much ) may cause the TV to shut down. When you have the proper brightness ( when it looks good to you ) close the set up and enjoy the renewed picture. Good luck and I do hope this has helped in some way
