Yes there is, you can very carefully take off the back of front speaker grill and the wood cover behind this. There you will see several controls I think six total, three on the top and three right below it, you want to turn up whats called the three screen controls for the red blue and green but you will need a B & W picture on the TV so you can balance the greay scale. if you do not balance the grey scale the TV will not look good. if you do not think you can do this adjustment properly, please play it safe and call in a tech to do these adjustment for you. Good Luck

Fluctuating brightness in dark scenes


The set would have to be inspected to be sure no voltage changes with changes in brightness are happening, and yes it may or may not be normal.

My question would be how long have you had the set and how long after you noticed it?

I have an old Orion TV134R . The picture is so dark on it that I need night-vision goggles to watch it . How can I brighten it up? I don't have the original remote control. Thank you.


how about in the menu button you can not get an adjustment in brightness control. if the display in the screen is too dark either in any channel or even watching a movie from an input source like dvd player, then i may say that the picture tube need now replacement.

Brightness and dark scene problems


you need to check your picture menu to verify you contrast is at max and brightness level is at approx 55% . if good , call for service and have htem check the setting on the screen controls. sometime they drift with heat, cold and age. when this happens, they usually have to reset the grey scale (black and white content) of the picture. Beyond that could be a defective red crt drive pcb or red crt or small signal panel.

Brightness of picture


If you feel good about opening your set then you can try this: Look for the flyback (high voltage) transformer, with the thick red wire which goes to the top of the picture tube. There are 2 controls on the flyback transformer, focus (top) and screen (bottom)Turn the brightness and contrast all the way down and then increase the screen control until you see retrace lines, and then back it down until those lines just vanish. Return the brightness and contrast to normal and adjust the focus control, if necessary, for a nice sharp picture. Let me know if that brings your brightness back.

Picture adjustment questions


*The brightness control setting determines how bright your picture will be. *The contrast control sets the gain of the video circuit. This determines the difference between dark and light scenes. Low contrast settings make the picture "hazy". High contrast settings make the picture more distinction between dark and light scenes. *The sharpness control determine the frequency response of the video circiut. High sharpness settings give better resolution but also shows more noise in your picture. Lower sharpness settings smoothe out the picture removing noise but also fine detail. It needs to be set for the best all around picture. *Picture Enhancement is pre-set adjustments which give you different picture qualities. You just select the one you like. Stargazer
