    it does not seem to be turning red.it is just dimming and is not crisp and clear. i had to turn up brightness to watch it. my son tried to play a video game and could hardly see where he was going.

    i took the lamp out to clean in that area to eliminate a possible dust problem and i saw a whiteish burn look on the glass just above the element and the lamp looked a little hazy.

    Is the picture becoming redish? If it becomes redish, then its the bulb. If not, it could be something else.

Ok, so it could be both then. Um if u open up the monitor, then u should see a small chip at the bottom of the lcd. This is called the Inverter. You might have to replace that. I would take it down to any local computer shop, they usually have tools to test it, and see if its broken. unles u just wana replace it, i think they average around 40$ u can simply unplug the old one, and plug a new one in, but it wont be 100% guarantied that. could be a bad installation of your new lamp aswel.

Ony KDF- E42A10 lamp needs replaced, should I replace the fan also, just got a new lamp 8 months ago picture is dark


Usually the lamp gets brighter when it begins to fail. I would check to see how dirty the inside of the set is. There are beam splitters and lcd filters in that set and if they get dirty then you lose picture quality.

Screen blinked and then there was a dark band across the top of the screen


This sounds like one of the back lights have failed. This could be its power supply, and or the lamp itself.

Not all the screens can be service for back light failure. This is design dependent. Also, if you are going to change a back light and you can, it is best to replace all of them at the same time. If not the coloration of the screen will be different from one part to the other. With age the color of these lamps changes a little.

I would suggest with such an old set, I would get one of the newer LED/LCD sets. They are very far improved over the one that you have. Your set will be expensive to service, if it can be serviced.

Mitshubishi TV WD65C8 picture is dark - has been that way since i bought it 2 yrs ago? sonenergy@qwest.net


If you have a dark picture I would first check lamp and see if correct, and if correct you could have a bad or weak ballast, but I would buy new mits lamp and replace and see if this helps if not check ballast

Our picture seems very dark, We got a new lamp installed about 8 months ago and have played with the colors etc but after awhile the picture just goes darker. any sugestions?


There should be a setting for the dynamic contrast ratio(or backlite setting on some tvs). Turning the dynamic contrast ratio off should make the screen brighter. This is usually called the DCR setting, turn it to off.

Hello,

No, you do not have a bad circuit board, the problem is still from the lamp you fixed on it. Have it checked once again to see to it that there was no slight difference in the way you have been fixing it.

If you have a bad circuit board, there would be a complete alteration in the functioning of the television.

Since the problem has to do with the lighting and picture of the television, it has to do with either the lamp or t-com board, so check them both.

Take care

Dark picture!


The Lamp it self, the Ballast, or the Power Supply that powers the Ballast. Even a combination of the Lamp and Power Supply is a common problem. If you have not replaced the Lamp since you have owned the set I would replace that first. The Lamp has about a 3000 to 5000 hour life span.
Hope this helps,
