Question about Mitsubishi WD-62528 62 in. LCD Television

Dark screen since new

18 mo old: Have set all video settings to bright, upped the contrast etc. The picture quality is always dark, meaning dark scenes are impossible to see what is going on. The Lamp was replaced 8 months ago and no difference. Also have reset to factory settings to no avail. Someone has suggested it may be the light engine (ouch) I am hoping someone might have an idea to a much cheaper solution. Thanks Tom

Re: Dark screen since new

Wow only 10 then major work, hum. First if pic is:Split screen picture with one half darker than the other half. "Deep Field Imager" is set to the demo mode, press the "video" button repeatedly to cycle through the video settings until Deep Field Imager is accessed and then change the setting from demo to "on" or "off" depending on preference. Also u can try:1. Dark blue raster with faint movement in the background, suspect the FMT PCB part # 934C153001 . Also1. May be intermittent. Remove and reseat the DVI cable between the Chassis and Optical engine 2. Removing and reseating the DVI cable does not resolve, replace the Optical Engine part # 938P015020 Hope this helps Tom!!

How do I lighten a dark picture

Hi Richard,
Please try reducing the contrast a little and increasing the brightness till the dark shots are clear. Please also check the back light setting. It should not be too low.This should make all the dark scenes clearly visible if it only a setting problem. In case the overall brightness has reduced, please consult a local TV Tech.

Voire 46" plasma tv- best color settings, to much white

The proper way to set flat screen tv's is opposite of old school CRT tv. First, find a movie with dark scenes and pause on a really dark part. Now set brightness only high enough to see some detail - no more. then go to a really bright scene and set contrast just high enough for good brightness. You may need to go back and forth a few times to get good setting.

I have a proview lcd screen and it palys the tv shows in back ground but it's a dark screen like dark blue no picture. Volume and everything working but just no picture. What can i do.

Show a torch light on the screen for a distance, and if you can see the picture, the backlight is not lighting up. Check for its settings on the remote, if you have that option. Check also the settings of brightness/contrast/sharpness/color. If you still have problems, please call in a qualified service technician.

Picture is dark. I need to adjust the contrast

If its starts out bright enough then rapidly goes to dark it may not be a matter of contrast. If it is the contrast hit the menu button and go into the video menu then select user defined as the setting select the contrast and adjust it to whatever specific setting you would like.

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..

The contrast setting should always be more than the brightness setting, it's purely common sense to have the black levels dark and the white levels light. I advise your brightness to be 40, and your contrast to be set to 60.

You shouldn't alter the hue, as most manufacturers would have spent significant time balancing this anyway, so set this to 50 and leave it alone.

The saturation shouldn't be altered too much, the best bet is to set this to 55 and let it be. Also, the colour temperature shouldn't be changed atall, so set this to the default setting and leave it alone.

As for the sharpness setting, this should definitely be set quite low. I advise setting the sharpness to 40, and the reason for this is most people assume that the higher the sharpness the better quality and detail, and they're completely wrong.

If you do what I said, you should end up with a crisp, smooth and colourful picture.

Dark screen

if the picture is REALLY dark, like you can just barely see it in a lit room, then the backlight might not be lit. LCD TVshave backlight that shines through the LCD screen which allows you to see the picture.

If it's not the backlight then it would be the brightness/contrast settings that need to be adjusted. If the picture used to be normal and all of a sudden went dark, verify the backlight. Normally you can look through the slots on the top of the set and determine if the backlight is on. If you can see a bright light through any of the slots, the backlight is probably OK... go after the brightness/contrast settings.
