SOURCE: new 42inch plasma turned off while watching, can't turn on

Panasonic requires an authorization number first from them. Our parts suppliers require that before we can even order the part. I recommend calling a svc co. to have it looked at, preferably an authorized panasonic service center, it will be much faster.

SOURCE: Vizio LCD Green Pixels

Our Vizio started doing the same thing after only three weeks, except it was also showing green pixel when we watched DVDs.  After checking this site and others and trying all the "tweaking" advised, I finally called Vizio's customer support.  They were extremely polite and tried to help over the phone, but had to send someone to the house to make the repair (anything 40 inches or larger earns a house call). The tech arrived on time and was extremely professional and pleasant -- he had to replace the daughter board and LVDS cables.  So far, so good.

I have a Hitachi LE42H508 tv that has an extremely dim picture. I have to turn the lights off to barely see anything on it. Sounds works great and I can navigate the menu and all fine. I can just barley...


Look thru the set up menu and see if there is an ambient light setting that adjusts the brightness of the TV based on the light level in the room. If there is then turn it off.

I have a Samsung 55in curved TV. It has auto dimming. In the evening with the lights out it dims to where it is difficult to see the picture. Can I get rid of the auto dimming?


If the brightness on your TV changes automatically (randomly dims and brightens), you may need to adjust the:
  • Eco Sensor function.
  • - And / Or -
    • Energy Saving function.
    The Eco Sensor and Energy Saving functions adjust the brightness of the TV to reduce power consumption.
    • When you set the Energy Saving function to Auto, the TV changes its brightness automatically depending on what you are watching on the TV.
    • When you set the Eco Sensor to On, the TV changes its brightness automatically depending on the brightness of the room.

Why is sony bravia dark screen


If your TV seems to be darker than you think it should be, it is possible that the problem is with the light sensor. The light sensor will automatically adjust the picture brightness based on the ambient light that is in the room, (i.e. if the room is bright the picture will also be bright, if it is dark the picture will also be dark).

To turn this feature off go to Settings > General Setup > Light Sensor.

Just bought the TV yesterday. In the bright room, with sun shinning, i can not see the picture. Is there a setting that needs to be switced?


You didn't mention the make or model of your TV but most of the latest do have an ECO setting or similar idea in the set up or picture menu, this means the screen will automatically adjust the picture brightness if the room starts to get too bright, as in the sun shining or if the room gets too dark. Take a look in your instruction book for this type of setting, remember not all models have this & yours may be one of them.

Adjust your monitor's brightness and contrast

You can adjust the brightness and contrast of your monitor to improve the readability of text and to make digital pictures appear more like they'll look when printed.


To improve the results when adjusting the brightness and contrast settings for your display, use Display Color Calibration. (Display Color Calibration helps you adjust these color settings and others.)

The way you adjust brightness and contrast varies and depends on your specific display.

Brightness and contrast buttons on the front of the monitor.


Some monitors have brightness and contrast controls on the front and use the standard symbols shown in the following image.

Brightness and contrast symbols

On-screen menu. You can change the brightness and contrast settings for some displays by using an on-screen menu, and then setting the brightness and contrast in the resulting menu. Many times, you can view the on-screen menu by pressing a button-possibly labeled Menu-on the front of the monitor.


Laptop display. Laptop displays don't have brightness or contrast buttons on the front.

For a majority of laptops, there isn't a control for setting the contrast.


However, you can set the brightness of many laptops by pressing and holding the Fn key, and then pressing a function key to decrease brightness ( ) or increase brightness ( ).

http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows7/Calibrate-your-display#

When using Display Color Calibration on a laptop, set the display to the maximum brightness setting.


Adjusting brightness automatically using adaptive brightness

Adaptive brightness is a feature in Windows that uses a light sensor to automatically adjust the display brightness to match the lighting conditions in your computer's surroundings.


To use adaptive brightness, you must have light sensors installed and enabled on your computer.


To determine if your laptop or computer monitor supports adaptive brightness, look for the Enable adaptive brightness setting in Power Options (mentioned in the following procedure) or check the information that came with your computer.


To turn adaptive brightness on or off

Open Power Options by clicking the Start button , clicking Control Panel, clicking System and Security, and then clicking Power Options.


Under any plan, click Change plan settings.

Click Change advanced power settings.

In the list, expand Display, and then expand Enable adaptive brightness.


To turn adaptive brightness on or off when your computer is running on battery power, click On battery, and then, in the list, click On or Off.

To turn adaptive brightness on or off when your computer is plugged into an outlet, click Plugged in, and then, in the list, click On or Off.

Click Apply. Click OK.


hope this helps

Ican't qdjust the color on my Samsung LED screen


Follow the below mentioned steps :

1.Turn on the LED TV and let it warm up for 30 to 40 minutes before making any changes or adjustments.
2. Put on the lights that you would normally use when watching the TV. You want to create the same ambiance that would constitute normal watching conditions for you. Make sure there is no glare or reflection from other items in the room such as a mirror.
3.Open the menu on the screen of the LED TV with your remote control and find the options for adjusting the color, contrast and brightness. Menu options will vary by TV, but look for options that will say "Contrast," "Color" and "Brightness."
4.Start with the "Brightness" control. It would be best to have a DVD playing so that you can get a better idea of the control settings. Pause the picture at a place that you can see a variety of scenery, such as sky, mountains and people in the forefront. Adjust the "Brightness" by pressing the up and down arrows until you are happy with the picture. Press "Save" or "OK" to set the brightness at this level.
5.Repeat this with the "Contrast" and "Color" controls, remembering to save your settings. Look for the "Mode" setting. Press the arrow to get to "Normal" or "Movie/Cinema." Press that setting and save it.6.Turn off any settings that are titled "Flesh Tone Correction" or "Vivid Sports." These will make the colors unnatural, use up energy and damage the TV over time.

Wave Radio-dial face,display very dim.


Our Bose did the same thing after a power outage. This one doesn't have a CD button, so we tried holding down the Clock button and used the volume control and that seems to have fixed it.

Found this in the manual:

To adjust the display brightness -

The display dims automatically to medium or low brightness, as appropriate for low light room conditions. You can adjust the brightness setting of the display for both strong light and lowest light environments, but not for the medium light setting. Turn the system off before setting brightness levels.

• In a strongly lit room, hold down CD Mode and press Volume up or down to adjust the setting between 5 and 9 (it is preset to 8).
• In a barely lit room, hold down CD Mode and press Volume up or down to adjust the setting between 1 and 5 (it is preset to 2).
• If you do not want the system to dim automatically, set both levels to 5.
