My tv's screem is little dark


Hello
If you set the lamp mode to LOW POWER, each time you turn ON the TV the lamp will start out at HIGH BRIGHT mode, but will switch to Low Power mode after a short period of time. You may notice a change in screen brightness when this happens. This is not a malfunction.
Just check whether you have selected this mode. Go to its user manual [P57]. All details are there about the lamp brightness settings. If it is not set to Low Power and still you get a dim picture, the lamp may be weak and has to be repaced. OK.

Ihave a Philips 50PL9126D tv and I just replaced the lamp because the picture was very dark. I can see the picture but it is still somewhat dark, bright in the middle,dark at the edges. I tried to adjust...


Sounds like you may have the wrong lamp. Make sure you purchased a Philips lamp that's 100% compatible with your television model. Philips pioneered that lamp, so naturally they make 100 different types for DLPs and LCD projections.

You may have an elliptical lamp instead of parabolic. The lamp for your TV should read P22h.

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:

  2. When the screen becomes dark or the color becomes unusual.
  3. When the lamp indicator on the front of the TV flashes.

Tv will not turn on


For dark picture I need to ask one question, How long ago you replaced its lamp? one year, two years?

Picture brightness is depends on lamp in LCD rear projection (DLP) TVs and if lamp got weak in generating light, you will see dark picture.

I would recommend to replace lamp and buy Sony original lamp from Sony Accessories Store.

Required lamp part number is as follows..
F93087500 LAMP BLOCK ASSY XL-2400
and price is $200
Good luck.

Screen getting dark


If you have never changed the lamp this is more than likely the issue, as the tv ages the lamp looses brightness. Most lamps are rated for 3000-5000 hrs of use. Replace the lamp assembly part # UX21514 and you will notice a much brighter picture. You do not mention if the tv plays the right colors on the entire screen. These have had light engine issues.
Good luck with it
