All works on tv but picture is very dark no matter what you do

if the brightness control has no effect, then picture tube is going out if it has a glass tube crt display. used to be a rejuvinator would cook off some of the deposit internally on the crt, but it also reduces the life of the set.

Very dark picture

Hi there!
Depending on the age of the TV, it might be power supply related. Check Mains smoothing cap or others in the area. Video circuit is also a possibility. Tube would be the last option to look into depending on the age of the set, Good luck,JUS004

Toshiba 32A33-Dvd Single Disk Player Recommendation?

I did what you are going to do,i bought a panasonic dvd to do the job and i found it to be just the one.
toshiba are a good make,so both will do but not sure about the pioneer.
i would go for the panasonic dvd as it worked very well for me.
the best thing to do is get it from argos because you have i think 14 days to return it,so you can check if its ok,if not you can take it back for a refund,and say that you bought it for a friend but they have already got one with out you knowing..hope this helps.all the best..Lee Bruce..

The picture is dark

Hi This could be one of three possibilities, one the High Voltage Screen Adjustment is off, Two the Picture Tube is Weak, or Three there is a problem with the Video Drive Amp/Amps, these are things that should be checked or adjusted by a qualified technician, especially the High Voltage Screen Adjustment, hope this helps.

Toshiba 35A44 - Dark picture on all channels and DVD's

for this brightness problem actually came out from flyback, before you spend and waste your money, try to adjust at back of your tv first. But if you aren't an expert, better ask technician to do because that transformer supply a very high voltage....there's two adjustment point at flyback transformer, one point for focus and the other one for brightness! try first...
