Re: picture is dark
Your set may need to have a screen control adjustment.
This adjustment is on the high voltage transformer and the back cover will have to be removed a access it. I'm assuming that your set has a picture tube in it- not a plasma or LCD display.
If this is the case you can remove the back cover and adjust this control while observing the picture being shown. If you adjust it too high you'll get retrace lines (fine lines going accross the screen). If you're not comfortable doing this or inexperienced, you might want to get a technician to adjust it for you. There are dangerous voltages inside!

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.
In many many cases this is an indication of a failing picture tube. The gun assembly in the neck of the picture tube is shorting. There is a fix, but this is surely last resort and the final cure may not provide a fix. Picture tube rejuvenation is not always successful. I would certainly opt for a new TV. Thanks for asking, and show a few hands of support!
sitnlisten - yes it does appear your pix tube is getting weak,but we may be able to turn up the flyback alittle to brighten up the picture.If you take the back off you will see the flyback-large black unit with a wire going to the round rubber cap on the back of the pix tube.Look at the flyback there are usually 2 adjusters one marked focus the other screen,just turn up the screen a little bit at a time.If you turn this up too much you will wind up with retrace lines on the screen.You may also want to check the pcboard ass'y for a sub bright adjust,and same thing small adjustments.If this don't help your pix tube may be too far gone.I hope this helps. cooltek Feb.1/08
First you can up the screen voltage, by finding the HV transformer. It has Screen and Focus control on it this it the Transformer that is in back of set and has an anode lead going to Picture tube. Come up on the screen control slowly and if the picture brightens with vertical lines then it's too high, The red problem is a small transistor that maybe located on the CRT board. It's probably shorted. There are about 3, each going to the different colors Red, Blue, Green.
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.
