Tv is on as bright at it will go, and the pictures are still too dark

I have the tv on as bright as it will go and it is still too dark, especially with nightime scenes. What could be causing this and how can I fix it. I have had the tv for about 8-10 years. Everything else is great.

Re: tv is on as bright at it will go, and the pictures...

You can open the back and look for the focus block, this block has 6 knobs on it. 3 are for focus and 3 are for screen control. You will need to turn up the 3 screen control at slightly the same rate. If you are off balance you will have color problems, Do not turn up too high. Becareful, cause you will need set on to adjust. Do not touch anything else. If you move the focus by mistake then you will have to readjust. 3 Guns you will have to adjust one at a time, by covering the other two. Hope this helps!

Ihave a Philips 50PL9126D tv and I just replaced the lamp because the picture was very dark. I can see the picture but it is still somewhat dark, bright in the middle,dark at the edges. I tried to adjust...

Sounds like you may have the wrong lamp. Make sure you purchased a Philips lamp that's 100% compatible with your television model. Philips pioneered that lamp, so naturally they make 100 different types for DLPs and LCD projections.

You may have an elliptical lamp instead of parabolic. The lamp for your TV should read P22h.

Picture is very dark on all channels. Settings have not changed. Do I need to replace the bulb?

You may need a drive PCB. This PCB can cause the picture to be too bright, no brightness or picture too dark, intermittantly or permanantly. Do check the bulb though and see if it is foggy looking or dull especially if it has not been changed. Thanks for using Fixya.

There is a possibility that the problem lies on the "Doubler" circuit board with this set, especially if the darkness looks like a smear in the picture during bright scenes like a hockey game.
