The picture on my JVC TV is too dark

I have a JVC TV - Model AV-32WFT1EK. Recently the picture has become very dark. I have the brightness turned fully up and cannot get a bright picture. The Contrast is set at half, Sharpnes works OK, Colour OK as is the tint . Eco mode makes little difference. TV is approx 5 years old. Is there a manual method of adjusting the brightness. (I have been using my remote)

Re: The picture on my JVC TV is too dark

On the inside of the TV, on the flyback transformer there should be two controls. Turn the one that says "screen" very slowly clockwise while looking at the pix. The pix should get brighter as you turn it up- if you go to far you will see lines in the pix or the TV may shutdown.

The picture is very dark

Unfortunately, there is no easy fix for this. If it were a rear projection TV, I'd suggest a new bulb. Even on a Plasma there are things that can be done. But on a CRT, the repair for a dark screen usually costs more than replacing it.

Picture on tv JVC 27" AV-27530 is getting to dark to enjoy. During dark scenes you can't see much. Have tried adjusting controls and settings to no avail. Any solution greatly appreciated.

I have the AV-27S33 model and in the rear to the right of the inputs are two slits and inside these slits are two screws. The top screw is the focus,the bottom the brightness.Your tv is a different model but it may have this same adjustment,if it does try turning the bottom screw to the right to increase the brightness.

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.

I have a JVC 27'' AV-27530 TV that the picture is very dark

An aging FBT if it still can be adjust using screen adjustment on FBT that will be a small tweak.

But if you are inexperienced with this, asked someone who knows how to do it to fix it for you.

Picture getting dark

My jvc 27" tv was so dark I could hardly see any night scenes, even with the bright all the way on. If you push the sleep button, let go, then hold down the video and display (together), the service menu will come on. Scroll down to #7 (too dark) and adjust the brightness there. Works immediately. Good luck.

How many years is your TV now? Usually TV has its life span, there comes a time that it happens. And need to look for a technicians, cause some of theme can still be repair by adjusting the brightness inside your TV.

JVC AV-27530 Sudden changes in brightness

This sudden changes in brightness are caused by the change in voltage inside the tv,not in the outlet in the wall but inside the set,The changes are an indication something is going wrong and it needs to be corrected,the set does have a brightness limiter but it only works when the set wants to get brighter than normal,You need the assitance of a servicer to correct this problem.
