Check you manual for a dual brightness control that may be activated or even stuck at low level. The manufacturers web site may have a technical help team to consult - have you tried?

Unfortunately dim image is normally due to a defective lamp assembly. I'd recommend removing the lamp and inspecting its condition. You'll notice black corrosion build up or a bubble is starting to form around the filament of the bulb if it is what's causing the dim image.

The projector is not giving a bright picture. The image on the wall is very dim


I you were using the projector in the same room with the same ambient light and if you notice this problem try increasing brightness, if still the brightness is not sufficient then it is time to replace the projector lamp.


If you have moved your projector to a different place, check if the existing light / ambient light in that room is making the image look dull / not so bright. If this is the case, try to reduce the ambient light

The image is very dim, even on maximum brightness. We are considering replacing the bulb, but bulbs for this projector are very expensive and we suspect that since there is some image, the bulb is not the...


Yes, as bulbs age they will begin losing brightness. Most projectors have a bulb life hour clock, that measures the number of hours a bulb has been used. Usually you can pull that up within the menu of the projector. Also that particular model has what is called "Eco-Mode" and when engaged dims the bulb by 25% to cut down on power consumption.

Typical life for a lamp in that projector is:

3000 hours on Normal mode
6000 hours on Eco mode

You can expect a brightness loss of 50% when you are approaching end of a lamps life.

Image is dim. How do I adjust brightness


You can adjust the brightness through the user menu, under the picture option. You might want to look at your bulb. It might be time to replace the lamp.

Proector image is dim


I have changed the bulb on my LG projector recently. I found the rotating colour wheel to be full of dust. Upon opening the cavity where the light is redirected and reflected onto the imager, I saw all mirrors also had a layer of dust. I don't think it was so dirty that it affected the brightness of the image, but I cleaned it anyway using an earbud. I cleaned both sides of the color wheel as well. You need to be careful in working with the optics of the projector!

All fillament based lights will dim as they age. Some of the newer/better types it will be unnoticible.  If you are losing image quality or brightness you may have a bulb that is nearing the end of it's life cycle.  A glance at you owners manual or the manufactor's website should give you an indication of the expected life of your bulb.  Also most of the projector made in the past few years have a counter that tallies the amount of hours your bulb has been on.  A more likely culprit is probably dust accumilation somewhere inside your projector. Most projectors have filters these days and need to cleaned at certain intervals and in certains ways.  Not cleaning these filters can cause heat build up that can increase operating temps and shorten the life of your bulb and or projector.  Or sometimes jsut fail and cause a dramatic decrease in image quality.  Again these things are vendor/model specific so you will want to check with them about your particular model. Hope this helps.
