    You must have a problem in the LED picture backlights, this means the entire display must be replaced even if only a few are burned out, if that is the problem, it is a very, very expensive repair. I would just replace the TV, they are so cheap right now that repair would not make sense to me personally, as the cost would be near the cost of new. This is you decision I can only suggest and try to advise.

Here you will click on "LTV-32w1"

On the page you get click on "LTV-32w1" beside the user guide icon.

The instructions for adjusting brightness is on page 15 for picture parameters off the Main Menu.
Its the first icon.
