This 30" flat screen TV set may have a problem in the high voltage circuit of the TV set. You may be able to adjust this by taking off the back of the TV set. Look for the block where the large red wire runs up to the top of the picture tube. On this block will be two controls. one will say screen and one will say focus. Try and slowly turn the control that says screen or S on it clockwise and see if you can make the picture brighter. Turn up the control till you just start to see faint lines in the picture, then back the control down till the lines go away. If the picture does not come up when you turn this up, and all you get is a blank screen, you will need to have this set repaired by a qualified repair person. Good Luck

Dark picture,can't get it to brighten up with menu color settings.

Assuming brightness and contrast (picture on some sets) does not help it could be a number of things, how old is this set?

Too dark

well...the contrast comes to mind first, and then the color's all accessible from the menu, of course.

I'd start with contrast, and then look at the color temperature ratings..

Adjusting color/ user mode??

The TV will not let you set brightness, contrast, color or tint in the preset modes like Vivid, Movie, Standard etc. Look for a mode that says custom, user etc..
