Night and indoor scenes are too dark

The TV displays night and dim indoor scenes too dark. The usual on-screen adjustments will not correct this problem. Are there any other adjustments that can be made on this tv? I have not been able to find a service tech. manual.

    I have the same problem and have tried to resolve it by adjusting the color, etc. By the time I finish with those adjustments to get a lighter picture, the picture is fuzzy. How can I find a repair person in San Diego, California?

If the set is less then 2 years old it should still be under warranty. As I understand there is a 2 year warranty on this set. There is some adjustments to adjust on and inside this DLP TV set but they are not customer adjustments and should not be attempted without a service manual. They are on a service menu for the tech to access and adjust. My best suggestion would be to contact the manufacture from a contact number in the owners manual or from the store where you purchaced the set from or from a number I found for a main contact. Main support number 800-294-6400. Good Luck

Color is grate on my Sharp 26" TV. However night scenes have become almost too dark to see. I have tried to adjust the settings but no improvement. Is this a fixable problem? Using Comcast Cable a

Check 'brightness' and 'contrast' settings in (usually) 'picture' menu. Use a recording (DVD etc.) of a dark scene to adjust the picture. My TV (not Sharp) has several pre-programmed picture settings. If yours has that, maybe one of them will be good. Otherwise, use manual settings.

I have a JVC tv only 1 year old and the picture is getting dark.

Sorry to tell you but JVC is a well-known un-reliable brand and if it's cheap, probably even worse. U may have screen burn from leaving a games console on while plugged into the tv, even if its not showing the game, it will burn it onto the screen. :(

Picture getting dark

My jvc 27" tv was so dark I could hardly see any night scenes, even with the bright all the way on. If you push the sleep button, let go, then hold down the video and display (together), the service menu will come on. Scroll down to #7 (too dark) and adjust the brightness there. Works immediately. Good luck.

How to increase brightness in Canon Powersot A620 ?

Are you asking about brightness as viewed on the LCD, or are you asking about increasing brightness on the actual image taken? If it's the image, there are two special modes that you can select on your mode dial. They are "Night Scene", "Night Snaphot", and "Indoor". A description of both, along with your camera's other special settings, may be found here:

"Night Scene" can be selected directly from the dial. It's the one showing a person standing under a star. Note that Night Scene should be used with a tripod to reduce the potential for blurriness.

"Night Snapshot" works almost as well, but does not require a tripod. It can be accessed by selecting SCN on the dial, and then pressing right or left with the selection buttons until it shows in the menu. The camera will remember this setting the next time you select SCN. I usually keep my camera always set to this setting so that I merely have to select SCN to use it.

"Indoor" works very well in those large rooms that may produce dark backgrounds when taking photos. It also does not require a tripod. It's accessed the same way as "Night Snapshot" (Select SCN, then right/left until selected). This is another good setting that I like to keep sometimes set in SCN.

Try all three settings, (and don't forget all the others too). Think you'll be impressed.

In my case, the adjustment was available from outside the TV. Sortof. On the rear of the TVabout 2 inches to the right of the coax in, there are two vertical slits on a little protrusion. Inside the slits are the two adjustment screws. The lower screw adjusts brightness, the upper screw adjusts focus.
