Why is sony bravia dark screen

If your TV seems to be darker than you think it should be, it is possible that the problem is with the light sensor. The light sensor will automatically adjust the picture brightness based on the ambient light that is in the room, (i.e. if the room is bright the picture will also be bright, if it is dark the picture will also be dark).

To turn this feature off go to Settings > General Setup > Light Sensor.

I have this model N3735w Viewsonic LCD flatscreen TV and it is flickering. The screen is also getting darker.

Try turning off the automatic brightness feature . This mode adjusts the brightness according to the light level in the room.

Dark line down the middle of my flat screen tv

Most LCD and PLASMA sets use two boards (some combine them into one board) that drive the Display Panel (the entire front screen unit) so I would suspect one of yours is bad.

The other unpleasant possible cause is where the left board is connected to the Display Panel (entire front screen unit) you have a problem inside that Display Panel and that is fatal as there is no way to get INSIDE the panel---it can cause both lines and a dark picture on one side of the screen.
