Hi Dawn,
The TV does have a screen control on each of the picture tubes ( there are 3 ) although I do suggest you have a qualified technician make the necessary adjustments as an improper adjustment can cause damage to the set. Should you deside to make these adjustments yourself, you'll need to remove the back ( or front in some sets) ( PRE-CAUTION, UNPLUG THE SET FROM THE WALL BEFORE PREFORMING ANY ADJUSTMENTS INSIDE THE SET ) The screen adjustments are located either on the bottom of each tube or in a group component located where the main High Voltage Wire ( large red wire from the black transformer on the deflection board ) is connected to. Look for a turn pot ( screw type adjustment ) that is marked SCREEN. When you locate it ( whether it be on each tube or in the group component ) turn it up only slightly and not to much, as excessive gain ( turning it up to much ) may cause the TV to shut down. When you have the proper brightness ( when it looks good to you ) close the set up and enjoy the renewed picture. Good luck and I do hope this has helped in some way

Brightness on VS-50605

The darkness shouldnt be that exspensive some trouble shooting and a few dollars should straighten that out. The screen however will cost a couple of hundred dollars, although that would still be cheap for a big screen, and that model does play exceptionall well when operating properly.

Blue Screen

no those tvs came with a black otuer screen that have rough ridges . If your screen is blue, someone may have replaced it with a dark colored plastic. You can get replacement screens at the following link, They are exspensive though.

Vs-60607 brightness problems

This sounds like it is a problem with the tv. Mitsubishi does have a problem with filter caps in thier regulator circuits. A repair tech will have to fix it.

No picture

If, in a dark room you can't even see the screen lit up, you have probably lost your high voltage driving the picture tubes and if the set is over 10 years old, I'm pretty certain that the parts will be no longer available -- that is one of my pet peeves about Mitsubishi. If you can see a grayish screen, then maybe there's a chance it could be repaired by a competent and dedicated technican.
