    I have the same problem. I cannot get the dark scenes brighter. When there is a night scene I cannot see anything. Is there a light that has to be replaced. I donot have a manual for this TV. Is there a way to get one?

Hello!
Well it seems that your lamp is about to go out, replacing the lamp might jus do it ! Also make sure you get a Philips lamps, they work like a charm.
And regarding the long plastic cover just be a little bity patient and you'll make it come off, just make sure you do remove all the screws.

What is the picture quality setting for a panasonic 1080i HDTV


Hi,
Adjust the video output settings on the devices connected to your Panasonic HDTV. To view 1080p programming, enter into the service menu on your external device and change "Video Output" to the appropriate resolution. By default, the Panasonic TV is always displaying content in the resolution provided for it by the external device. If your cable box is set to output in "1080i," for example, your TV will display content in 1080i.


Let me know if this fixes the issue.
Regards,Suhail

Screen has too much green all of a sudden


Try balancing the tubes out, turn your color all the way down and the brightness in the middle, then find the focus block, it will be a block with 6 controls one row will say screen the other will say focus near the picture tubes, adjust the screen controls(one control for each color) until the picture has a good black and white look to it, then turn your color up and it should look fine. This is how i balance out the picture. But there is another method that allot of techs use, the other method is to adjust the brightness up until you see what is called retrace lines it is a jagged line going down the screen, once you see these lines back the adjustment down just until they disappear. Do this for all three colors. This method works but on an older set can throw the white balance off because of tube wear.

My picture is dark and have changed the brightness


This model is notorious for needing a new lamp about every 2 years. The lamp is accessed through the front by removing the long plastic cover under the screen (it just pulls off). Under that, to the left of center, is a square cover with one grey plastic screw. Loosen the screw and pull the lamp assembly out. It should just slide right out. Turn it around and look at the lamp. If the lamp face or reflector looks "cloudy" or "misty". Replace the lamp with Philips part number TY-LA1000. Just Google the number and you will find them available for around $100
