Your first problem is its a zenith {snicker}, The most likely reason for this is weak tubes and seeing that they are $180 + to replace it wouldnt be feesible to repair. HOWEVER you can try to turn the G2 up on the tubes but if it looks washed out and the whites arent wite just junk her and get you a new HD model besides HD is the upcoming standard in 2009.

Sanyo dp26640 picture is dim

Try adjusting the Backlighting. With the new LCD/LED TV's the brightness control actually does very little to brighten the picture. If adjusting the BACKLIGHT setting doesn't improve it and it's out of warranty, then you're apt to discover that if it's even repairable that the cost of repair could easily exceed what you paid for it when it was new.

This is unfortunately one of the hard lessons associated with shopping for flat screen TVs. Regardless of what they cost when new, they all have one thing in common in that they can be very expensive to repair, often times resulting in the low cost/economy models being "throw-aways" when they develop problems. This makes the extended warranties sometimes worth the extra cost, as long as you realize thet the E/W has a maximum total claims pay-out equal to the amount you paid for the set when new. Example, if you buy a $300 TV and then get an ext'd warr. for it, then have a $200 repair claim, that leaves you with only $100 remaining coverage. That's how Ext'd warranties work.

HCL652W picture faded will bulb replacement fix this

I would say that it is not worth replacing the bulbs. I had a similar experience with an old rear projection TV like that and I just cleaned all the dust out of it as well as I could. i cleaned the back of the screen, the mirror that the image reflects off of, and the bulbs themselves. I used a dry micro fiber cloth so as not to scratch anything. doing this might help you some, but if it is working and it is bright enough for you after a few minutes, I would just live with it until you can upgrade to a newer TV.

Problem with my canon powershot 460 when shooting in day light the picture will appear too bright and with horizon tal lines

It's most likely a broken shutter cable inside the lens. The solution is to change the shutter. It should get quite expensive so I believe it's not worth repairing this camera.

Sorry for the bad news.

Proscan PS27123 TV Problem

just to be sure, is it vertical or horizontal? Anyway, if it is vertical, it could point out to the vertical Ic section or some loose contacts along the lines. If it is horizontal, it could be a filter capacitor along the horizontal Circuitry. Mark the high voltage capacitors along the high voltage sections.

LCD problems

Try turning the brightness all the way up to 100. That seemed to solve the problem for now. I believe neilneves is right that the power inverter is not supplying enough power, but in my case at least, by increasing the brightness the LCD is now receiving enough power to not flicker.

Sounds like your inverter board has failed.

Yes, it is an expensive fix. You can try asking Best Buy if they can repair the unit if it is still under warranty, or what it will cost to have it repaired by the Insignia people.

If the player still works, you can try using it as a set-top unit and connect it to another monitor through the A/V outs.

If you want to attempt the repair the fix for most Hitachis going dark is to remove the front panel and get access to the 3 CRT's (picture tubes) Then one by one with the set off and unplugged, remove the CRT boards from the CRT's and blow out the sockets with compressed air. Once all three are done cover it all back up and reapply power and 99% of the time your picture will return to normal.
