When the picture is starting to dim down a little bit that would be the first indication that you are going to need a new lamp. If you do a google search for lamps you will come up with a lot of dealers that sell lamps, or you can get one from the manufacture.

I have a 55in Samsung Dlp the color looks good but a little dark can't see picture if the movie is dark


You might need a new bulb, the bulbs get dim as there life diminishes. Replace the bulb to get a bright picture. Do not use cheap bulbs, an OEM bulb for that tv should be $60+. . Cheap clone bulbs will work but will fail a lot sooner

CONTRAST ADJUSTMENT


it is best to shut the color level to the lowest setting then try t balance the screens to achieve the best black and white picture. then turn up your color level. Your brightness level should also be set to 50 % then when you adjust for the best B&W picture. You will have better color and brightness when you reset your color and brightness levels.

I am further looking into ur problem..

Goodluck..

No this set does not have a bulb, it has three crts, one is green, red blue, and if the colors are seperated this sounds like you have an issue with the convergence, this is common and will require service. If you want to attempt the repair you will need to repalce the two stk392 ic's on the left hand board looking from the back. They are not user servicable. If you are not experienced it electroinic repair i would suggust to get it serviced by a pro.

Picture is dark


Adjust video settings:
  1. Press Wega Gate
  2. Select Settings
  3. Highlight Video
  4. Press + to select
  5. Adjust/increase the brightness.
  6. Press Wega gate to exit.
If picture is still dark, you need to replace the lamp again. Sony recommends that you replace the lamp:
  1. After approximately 8,000 hours of use.
  2. When the screen becomes dark or the color becomes unusual.
  3. When the lamp indicator on the front of the TV flashes.

Dark Color on TV. Can't adjust the color correctly


Having same problem now for a second time on a 57T500. First time was a bad green bulb that was covered under warranty. Only lasted 2 years....currently debating wether to fix or buy a new set. Bulbs cost about $300. Set is only 5 years old, so very dissapointed with quality.

Help :) My PANHDTV-53WX42F color went dark and I can not seem to get it lighter by using the menu options, also tried the convergence adjustments,, should I call a service tech or buy a new tv ??? Thanks !


I have determined that it is my green bulb that is bad, because it also controls a lot of the black/white picures, thus that I believe it is out this is causing the darkness. I went through all of the convergences through set up and altered/adjusted all the options in picture, not much changed other than the brightness of the pictures which at least makes it somewhat watchable. Have called a tech to replace bulb. Will let you know if it is anything else, but I must say for a "girl" I am getting very good at assessing a lot of mechanical issues :)

What you need is the owners manual my friend. In here it will show you where to get to the lamp and how to change the lamp. Go to http://esupport.sony.com/US/perl/model-documents.pl?mdl=KDF55WF655&LOC=3
to get a free copy of the OWNERS manual. Page 16 tells you how to do this. Good Luck
