RE: Toshiba 27" Cinema Series

I have a 27" Toshiba Cinema Series tv set I've been working on, the problem is a dark picture, the High Voltage is where it should be and it appears to have plenty of Screen Voltage Range, I suspected a video problem, and replaced the Video Detector IC with no luck, at this point I have no idea where to look next, any ideas?

The screan is too dark while I am watching tv

If a conventional picture tube type set it will have a high voltage transformer inside with a focus and "screen" control--in this case the screen needs to be adjusted up slightly.

Adjustment is inside the set so you have to have back off and be careful as high voltage is present when set is on (need it on to adjust the screen control just up a tiny bit).

Jvc 27'' TV is too dark

There are two small holes on the rear side through which you can adjust focus and screen. Use a flash light and locate the two adjustable slots inside the holes. This part carries high voltage. Do not use a metal screwdriver to adjust. Put the TV facing a mirror so you can see how it works. Do not turn more than 1/8th of a turn. The focus control makes picture sharp or fuzzy. Screen control could change brightness. While watching the picture in the mirror, slightly adjust the screen control. Do not turn too much. If it doesn't work, then call a JVC authorized repair center.

Dark picture after storm.

Dark picture? hmm.
meaning there is no brightness variation, assuming this is the fault I think U might be having low screen voltage. Check for high value ( around 2W) resistor, preferably from 100K to 680K on the "C" board or neck board. Post back

Adjustable Color Temp. The Adjustable Color Temperature feature lets you adjust the color balance on your TV, depending on the type of light in the room, such as direct sunlight or artificial lighting. On your remote control there should be a button that lets you change the picture mode, IE. Rich, Personnal, Cinema, Sport etc...

JVC 27" AV27F803 Brightness fades to dark intermittently

I likely you have a loose conection in the crt board at the neck of the picture tube or a loose conection close to the high voltage transformer,I would suggest to tap the main board as well as the crt board with a wooden or rubber handle(not metal),be attentive were you tap to see if the set reacts ,if the set reacts you will need to resolder those places ,be carefull working on a set that is on while you do it,this should give some idea what the problem could be in case you want to call someone to help you with the repair.Let Us know if you need more information.

Toshiba 27 Inchs, the immage dsiappear after few minutes, then i have to swich the Tv off for a while

If the picture is fading slowly out it could just be a cold solder connection on the ctr board or the Hi voltage circuit that supplys the filiment voltage to the crt. To check this you have the back off and when the pic goes out you look at the crt to see if its still lighting up. if its not then you gotta find out where your missing the filiment voltage at> If there is still a light inside the tube when the picture is dark then it could be a PIP problem or in the video section /video jungle IC on the set. Now these sets have alot of high voltage inside them even when the sets unplugged so I advise against going inside and tweeking with the set unless you know all the safty issues with the Hi voltage and storage capacitors inside this set. there are no real user serviceable parts inside these sets and should only be serviced by a quilified service person. Good Luck
