The brightness control probably works full time - no turn off option

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 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.

When watching my new vizio smart tv I noticed it gets light then dark over and over again. whats wrong?


Could be in store demo mode. Check that then make sure the picture mode is not set to Eco friendly or anything related. It sounds like some picture setting where it reads the brightness and adjusts automatically. I've found almost all setting thereof to be quite useless and more trouble than anything.

Why does my Vizio E470VLE LCD TV have no picture but it does have sound?


you may have a backlight problem. To verify this, dim the lights in the room. Turn on the set and shine a bright flashlight on the screen. If you see a faint picture, you have a backlight fault.

Auto-dimming problem


It depends of the set--may have a light sensor built in and if so when light in the room changes the brightness on the TV and contrast will vary.

is the auto contrast on? If room is bright it will dim to compensate for brightness.

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.
