Re: Dark screen/picture.

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

I am trying to adjust the brightness on this circa 1980 floor model solid state tv

The contrast setting controls the relation between the light and black areas of the screen. If the light areas are too bright and are losing details, press the CVOL button; if the picture is gray and lacks contrast, press the VOLB button

The brightness setting controls the overall amount of light in the picture. If the picture is too bright, press the CVOL button; if the picture is too dark, press the VOL B button

The color setting controls the intensity of color.

You need to adjust the brightness, tint, contrast, and brightness in order to get the color to even out. Menu; settings; display. If you no longer have the remote, either buy a universal, or use the tv buttons(channel + - should navigate the cursor) to enter menu mode. Be patient because it can be frustrating; so don't do it when agitated, hungry, or tired. GL

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 adjustment questions

*The brightness control setting determines how bright your picture will be. *The contrast control sets the gain of the video circuit. This determines the difference between dark and light scenes. Low contrast settings make the picture "hazy". High contrast settings make the picture more distinction between dark and light scenes. *The sharpness control determine the frequency response of the video circiut. High sharpness settings give better resolution but also shows more noise in your picture. Lower sharpness settings smoothe out the picture removing noise but also fine detail. It needs to be set for the best all around picture. *Picture Enhancement is pre-set adjustments which give you different picture qualities. You just select the one you like. Stargazer
