The screen brightness is automatically adjusted by your laptop's Power Management configuration in the Control Panel. Depending on your laptop's brand you might not only have the Windows power management, but also a proprietary power management application within the control panel or in your Start Menu programs usually listed under your computer's brand name. For example a program folder called "Toshiba" under Programs for a Toshiba laptop. Anyway, I would start there. Usually you can set up the screen brightness according to whether or your computer is plugged in or working on battery. Good luck! :)

Zenith pvr6069 rk is out of focus for letters and picture not very bright


First this set should have a production date on the rear of around 1995--fairly old.

If letters outlined in red etc--a convergence problem--either adjustment with remote (in menu) or a circuit problem in same area.

If picture dull and darker--locate the 3 large lens inside from the rear and wipe them clean--they are the light source for the sets picture and if dirty will cause a dark dull picture.

Let me know if questions.

You can adjust the brightness control on your 19PR19 Philips Tv. For that you have to go to picture contol menu
Do it as follows

To adjust your TVs picture control, select a channel and follow these steps.

[1] Press the Menu Button on the remote control to display onscreen menu.
[2] Press Cursor up or Cursor Down button until the word Brightness is hilighted. For each press of Cursor Up or Cursor Down button you can go through Colour, Picture, Sharpness, Tint, Colour temp etc, depending on the adjustment you want to make.

Picture is very dark on all channels. Settings have not changed. Do I need to replace the bulb?


You may need a drive PCB. This PCB can cause the picture to be too bright, no brightness or picture too dark, intermittantly or permanantly. Do check the bulb though and see if it is foggy looking or dull especially if it has not been changed. Thanks for using Fixya.

Laptop screen is barely readable, cannot not determine location of cursor.


The first thing to check is brightness of your IBM. May be the brightness is set very low. It may sound silly and simple, but we human can overlook simple issue.

Secondly, try using another charger. Not the battery. Recently, I had problems with one of laptop same model. I formatted and reinstalled windows etc...nothing helps. Just curios, changed the charger and surprise me...It worked alright.
