Have you tried using the F2 button?

Else go to system settings > displays, there you can adjust brightness as well.

A common cause is a failure in the one of the scan amplifiers or on the high voltage section. It is also possible to have a power supply fault that will give this error message.

The Contrast and Brightness on tv appears to be dark.


If this is a CRT-based TV and it's been played most of the time, you may have a bad picture tube, especially if strong red colors bleed to the right. CRT's dim with use, unlike LCD or plasma. But it could also be trouble in the video circuits - none of this falls into the DIY category, unfortunately. High voltage involved, unless you're comfortable around it and want to try turning up the screen controls inside the TV. If you do, let me know - but "no response at all" from the external adjustments points to a more serious problem.

Toshiba 36A42 TV. Dim Picture


Check the "screen" control on the flyback (lower knob) its easy to hit moving a board around. Try to adjust back to its original setting. Look for where the dust is, it should be on top. Or any marks might help. Other wise adjust slowly, back off if any retrace lines appear, with user settings at there normal settings.
