If this just happens while vcr is playing. Check the vcr. Did you happen to adjust its brightness and contrast settings. If things doesn't change. Then if this model is a crt type could be adjustment on its flyback transformer is needed tweaking slowly its screen knob or tweaking also its focus knob until you got it to the level of viewing it correctly.

But be aware, hazardous voltages inside it. Or let th technician set it for you, its a minor adjustment.

It doesn't work on my ps3 no picture only audio


If it works on other televisions, than the video cord must be good. Is the television on the right input channel? If it is, the video input may be bad. You should test the video input with a dvd player or vcr. You can always plug ps3 into a vcr, and vcr up to televison.

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.

Picture is dark


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

The set you have has a bad tuner assembly. At this point most likely you would be better off getting a new TV set. Good Luck

Toshiba 35A44 - Dark picture on all channels and DVD's


for this brightness problem actually came out from flyback transformer...so, before you spend and waste your money, try to adjust at back of your tv first. But if you aren't an expert, better ask technician to do because that transformer supply a very high voltage....there's two adjustment point at flyback transformer, one point for focus and the other one for brightness! try first...

VCR not working with TV


What you state cannot be logical. If picture is freezing, then the VCR is at fault. But you state that the VCR works fine when played, and viewed on another TV. So, the only explanation I can think of is that there is some thing faulty with your VCR. Probably, when you play a tape, the picture freezes. This could be 'cos the Capstan motor of the VCR freezes. Common problem with aged VCRs. Just requires a spot of grease, and service. IT CANNOT BE THE TV AT FAULT!!!!

Hitachi 23" tv/ toshiba vcr


Sounds like a problem in your VCR IF what your saying is when the screen goes dark and you turn off the VCR then the screen on the tv returns to normal?? Does this happen with the vcr on and the tape not playing?? No Ok you have a problem in the video processor Ic or the circuit but most likly the IC as Ive seen this already twice in a toshiba VCR. No if it happens even when the VCR is on but the tapes not plying and the vcr is sitting, and the screen fades The problem is the on screen disply IC in the vcr. seen this a dozon or so times already. Vcrs no a days are not worth the money to invest Unless you got a really good one from the past, BUT you can by a good on for these times for well under 100 bucks . Good Luck
