I have an older Sharp TV. The color of the screen all of a sudden has darkened some. Is there a way on the tv to lighten the screen? Thank you!


This problem can result from the aging of various components within your set, in general with older TVs, particularly sets of 15 years or older for example tend to suffer from capacitors that degrade - effectively reducing the maximum level of picture illumination available. Another issue for old sets that have been used extensively is that of the picture tube's electron gun aging, over time the gun produces fewer electrons to fire at the phosphor coating hence causing less "glow" - this can be sometimes improved by adjustments to the tube. All in all the set may require a decent service to ***** what aged components need replacing. Some later TVs do have a trimpot on the flyback transformer to allow the tube's brightness to be increased, but most older sets lacked this feature. SHARP did have this feature on many of it's 90s TVs but it needs to be adjusted with care by suitable techs due to the dangerous voltages present.

Hope this info is of some help, Regards.

No control and the picture is too dark

Not sure what you mean by no control?

Brightness settings on any TV made since the early to mid 90's (besides tiny cheap B&W TVs) will have the settings in an on-screen menu. Sometimes the menu is accessible through buttons on the TV itself, but always accessible through the remote control. If your TV does not have the ability to get to the settings menu from the TV controls itself, you will need the original (or compatible) remote control for the set, there is no other option.

It could also be that the set is just dying; it's an older set, and certainly would be a possibility.

What are the picture,color,tint,bright,and sharp settings because the picture quality is bad for the proscan ps27108 tv?

You would go into the menus to adjust the picture settings. Press the menu button repeatedly until you get the 'video' menu hilighted, then press the 'select' or enter or whatever button chooses, and then use the left and right arrows to adjust the settings, and the menu button to advance to the next selection.
