Is that a portable DVD player? if so it sounds like the backlight had died on you. I would contact the manufacturer and see if it is covered under warranty.

Projector picture has a darkened quarter screen on a angle


Ok I guess you have an optical mirror chamber error sounds good doesnt it but can happen if projector has been knocked or dropped in the optical engine there is a chamber connected in between the main lamp and internal glass lens you may see it if you look inside the lamp assembly this very small chamber has four very small mirrors in it and is held in place usually by a metal plate bracket you may find one of the mirrors has moved or dropped this makes the refraction of light incorrect which will cause your dark shadow on your image screen

Tip

My camera has spots in the picture



The spots are caused by the flash being SO close to the lens. Anyobject that can reflect the flash reflects it right back at the camera.
This is an image problem with most point and shoot digitals. Watch forreflective surfaces and stand at an angle to them. Turn on more lightsin the room before using flash. Most indoor pictures start way too dark.
Stand at a slight angle to the image orperson you are photographing - don't shoot straight on. (I kneel downand shoot up - makes a good shot too.)
If you are shooting toward the sun lit side of an image, shield the lens from direct sunlight with your hand (Keep your hand out of the picture!)
A professional photographer has the flash way away from the lens for a reason...

I have a Protron LCD 26" TV model#LT26CIPI...The tv was working great turned it off on night and in the morning turned it back on to sound but no picture just a Black screen...when you change channels


Since its a LCD take a flashlight and have the room as dark as possible and with the light look to see if a very very faint image of the picture can be seen or not---many of these sets use a "back light" for the brightness and if that's not on.......

Sreen is dark, can barely see picture


The LED backlight went out. This happened to mine. It's the light that makes the screen bright. If you take it to an electronic repair shop, they should do it for around $30 dollars or so. Good luck!

Best solution to improve picture quality. Screen


Try to turn the contrast down. It can really help out a lot. If this is not working look up your tv's best settings. CNET.com has some great settings under the forums.

If all else fails but a calibration dvd and go thru the settings. Some dreamworks and disney dvds even have them right under the disc extras. Hope I could help!

by the way, remember to cut some of the light in your room if it is well lit. It will help make the picture look better as your eyes can distiguse the light and darks better

RCA TV. No picture yet has sound.


I unplugged the tv and the cable box and pulled out the battery of controls for 12 hours. When I turn on again, the tv and cable box back to normal.

No picture will talk, picture dark


If you mean you have nothing on the screen, either the backlight or its associated power supply has faiiled. Look at the screen at several different angles; if you can see some sign of motion, then the LCD panel itself is still ok.

Dark screen


if the picture is REALLY dark, like you can just barely see it in a lit room, then the backlight might not be lit. LCD TVshave backlight that shines through the LCD screen which allows you to see the picture.

If it's not the backlight then it would be the brightness/contrast settings that need to be adjusted. If the picture used to be normal and all of a sudden went dark, verify the backlight. Normally you can look through the slots on the top of the set and determine if the backlight is on. If you can see a bright light through any of the slots, the backlight is probably OK... go after the brightness/contrast settings.

Very Dark Picture


The backlight is dead.

The screen is shot since this is an integrated LCD and backlight. If you can find another screen of similar size you might be able to swap parts out...but it's unlikely.

Picture going dark then brighter


I had a similar problem on a different DVD player and found that if I plugged it into the TV the problem went away.
