Question about Sony KP-46WT500 46" Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television

Screen goes light and dark

This morning, I turned on the Tv and the scrren was dark. You can still see the picture, but it was like the brightness was turned right down. So I unplugged it for 2 hours so it would reset, which seemed to work. But then it started going light to dark. But when I go to HD channels, its crystal clear. When I tried the DVD player, it goes dark again. Help!

    I forgot to add. I have a Starchoice sat. When I change to HD channels, its perfect, but when I go to the other channels, its dark again. So its just not the DVD player thats doing it. Sorry for the confusion.

Check the connections from the DVD player, make sure they are not loose. If the DVD player has it's own brightness, contrast or gamma settings, they may have changed, in which case reset them to default if you have that option, or just play with them until you have it sorted. Quite possibly your DVD player may have a feature that you can enable that dims or brightens the image by the touch of a button, look out for that. However it seems unlikely it's a problem with the TV - the only thing I would say about the TV is it may be the ports which the DVD player uses to connect to the TV. The only way to find out if it is the TV or not is to try a different DVD player with it.

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.

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.

Backlighting issues on tv set (I think). Screen goes extremely dark after about 30 min. of viewing. Does not return to orginial brightness unless unit is left off for a long period of time


Lcd tv sets are lit by small glass florescent tubes called cold cathodes and, are powered by: ballasts called inverters... these go out just like your office florescent lighting the parts can be purchased online from electronic parts houses and, are easily replaced

Screen goes dark


I thught I answered this one but if you disconnet the sensor it should brighten up the picture If it dosent then its part of the brightness curcuit and must be replace. As I remeber thewre are severall models that you could simply disconnect. Or there should be an auto brightness feature in the main menu picture ajustment to simply disable or shut it off. Good luck
