Hitachi Ultravision Digital TV dark picture

I have a Hitachi Ultravision digital tv that has a very dark screen. Sometimes the picture will get bright and is ok for viewing but then it becomes dark again and I can barely see anything. What is wrong? This tv isn't very old and I don't feel it should be having this problem.

Thank you!

Re: Hitachi Ultravision Digital TV dark picture

Looks like

1. A Cold solder in the Video Output stage power supply.

2. A bad Electrolytic Capacitor in the above Video Output stage.

I generally do not waste time in attempting to locate faulty capacitors. There will be only 6-8 pf them in the above stage / section,m and the klot of them would collectivelyt not cost more than 3-4 $ equivalent, in india. Just blindly replace the lot, and the set is ready in 30 mins.

Dunno how much they will cost in your country. Try to look for a 100mfd, 160V Capacitor. Close your eyes and replace. generally does the trick.

The picture is really dark even though I have the brightness set to a hundred percent

brightness isn't brightness, its technically called white level, as for the fault, probably a power supply issue, also turn the brightness down as having it set to high can cause long term damage to the tube.

Tv is too dark

You didn't say how old your TV is. If it's very old the picture tube could be weak. IF not then there is a screen adjustment on the flyback transformer that you might try to adjust. Sometimes you can access this adjustment without removing the back cover. If you see an adjustment through a hole in the back of the cabinet marked "SCREEN" then you might try turning this control clockwise while watching the picture in a mirror. Only a slight adjustment may be needed. Don't make it too bright or the set may shut down or have small white (retrace) lines in the picture. If you have a projection TV then dust on the three picture tube lenses will darken the picture. These are general statements that apply to different TV's. I assumed that this is a direct view 32 in.
