TV picture is dark

Our Toshiba TV model 36HFX72 picture contrast is dark for TV and Video.  Is it time to get a new TV?

    I have the same TV, and the brightness has been fading for some time, so we have compensated by adjusting the brightness setting up higher and higher. We have the brightness setting now cranked up to 100 (the highest setting) just to make it look almost normal.

    The TV is only four and a half years old and gets relatively light use (less than one hour per day). Very disappointing.

    Does anyone have a solution for this issue that is homeowner-fixable?

I have a toshiba universal remote model ct-90121. I need the program codes and programing instructions for an rca tv


According to Toshiba, the CT-90121 isn't a universal remote control. This remote only works with TOSHIBA TVs with the following model numbers:

32AFX62, 32AFX63, 32HFX72, 34HDX82, 36AFX62, 36AFX63, 36FX72, 36HFX72, 42HDX52, 42HDX82, 50HX70, 57HDX82, 57HL83, 57HLX82, 65HDX82, 65HLX83

Unless you posted the wrong remote model number (?) your Toshiba remote isn't going to work with your RCA TV.

Please rate this solution if you find it helpful. Thanks!

I have no picture on my 15" LCD Insignia TV. My

You may have a burnt out blacklight... You can fix it easy by having the tv on while it’s a bright picture than quickly unplugging it... or it would be best to get a new TV.

Toshiba television is black picture

If this just happens while vcr is playing. Check the vcr. Did you happen to adjust its brightness and contrast settings. If things doesn't change. Then if this model is a crt type could be adjustment on its flyback transformer is needed tweaking slowly its screen knob or tweaking also its focus knob until you got it to the level of viewing it correctly.

But be aware, hazardous voltages inside it. Or let th technician set it for you, its a minor adjustment.

The Contrast and Brightness on tv appears to be dark.

If this is a CRT-based TV and it's been played most of the time, you may have a bad picture tube, especially if strong red colors bleed to the right. CRT's dim with use, unlike LCD or plasma. But it could also be trouble in the video circuits - none of this falls into the DIY category, unfortunately. High voltage involved, unless you're comfortable around it and want to try turning up the screen controls inside the TV. If you do, let me know - but "no response at all" from the external adjustments points to a more serious problem.

Picture adjustment questions

*The brightness control setting determines how bright your picture will be. *The contrast control sets the gain of the video circuit. This determines the difference between dark and light scenes. Low contrast settings make the picture "hazy". High contrast settings make the picture more distinction between dark and light scenes. *The sharpness control determine the frequency response of the video circiut. High sharpness settings give better resolution but also shows more noise in your picture. Lower sharpness settings smoothe out the picture removing noise but also fine detail. It needs to be set for the best all around picture. *Picture Enhancement is pre-set adjustments which give you different picture qualities. You just select the one you like. Stargazer
