    Local tv shop will troubleshoot for 95.00 amd apply that to repair, Due to age probably best to junk and go to LCD. My soldering skills are excellent as I have years repairing closed circuit tv's.

If its old dont put in money.the dark background is bacause the lamp is gone weak and is in the last life.if you want the problem to be solved,you will have to replace the lamp.but if its very old tv then putting in money for lamp is npt advisable.

Hi,

Try the Magic Focus option on the menu screen found under "Picture". Make sure the TV is on for 20 minutes before activating this option. It is also best to run this when the room is dark.
or You may be able to correct this problem with the convergence controls in the user menu. Hitachi also has on some projection sets a button called "magic focus" which is an automatic convergence control. If you can't seem to bring things back the way they should be you may have to get your convergence ICs replaced as well as some resistors in the convergence circuit. Unless you have above average soldering skills I'd suggest leaving that up to a technician.
Thaks for contacting Fixya

Too dark


well...the contrast comes to mind first, and then the color temperature..it's all accessible from the menu, of course.

I'd start with contrast, and then look at the color temperature ratings..

Pictures very dark, Brightness all the way up. Contrast does not adjust


I have the same problem. I was able to temorarily fix the issue by taking the back cover off and blowing all of the dust out. But this only worked for two days. Now the problem is back. Did you fix the issue with your tv? Thanks.

Color is very dark


Unfortunately when there that dark there isn't much you can do to make them brighter but get new ones and at this point you may want to consider to replace the whole thing.
