Question about Sanyo PDP-32H1W 32 in. Plasma Television

1 Answer

Sanyo HD TV

The picture at the store was fantastic. We hooked it up at home and the color needs adjusting all the time. The picture is much too dark.

Do we need to connect it with an HDMI cable to get the best picture or do you feel it is our tv and/or cable box?

Any help is appreciated....

Why does my sanyo dp46848 screen go dark but whites are too bright?

First try to gently push the cable between the main board and the LCD controller (T-CON) board and if that doesn't affect the image then replace the T-con board.

My HD TV is no longer showing a clear picture

Sure sounds like the CRT fluid is cloudy and needs to be replaced.
If its not the fluid the convergence chips are bad.

Here are some of the most common symptoms and example photos of a convergence problem

  • Screen looks 3D
  • Colors don't line up
  • One or more colors can't be adjusted when using the convergence menu.
  • Screen is bowed or warped.

Here is a quick test....

Using your original remote go-to the tv settings then goto the convergence section.

Try to adjust the red and then the blue convergence.

You should be able to move them up, down, left, and right.

If you can't move them in all directions your convergence chips are bad and should be replaced. This is a common problem.


You need to replace the convergence chips and convergence resistors. Check the site They have put together a kits for most models. If you don't see a kit for your set send them a quick email and they will put one together for you. Their kits includes photo instruction guides, original Sanyo STK chips, convergence resistors, pico fuses, etc.

Dark colors Picture going out

It is hooked up to Direct TV. When I change the channel on the TV to another input it looks fine but without a picture. as you do not see tint in another channel means your color section is ok it is due to video or luminance section.

Dark screen/picture.

This 30" flat screen TV set may have a problem in the high voltage circuit of the TV set. You may be able to adjust this by taking off the back of the TV set. Look for the block where the large red wire runs up to the top of the picture tube. On this block will be two controls. one will say screen and one will say focus. Try and slowly turn the control that says screen or S on it clockwise and see if you can make the picture brighter. Turn up the control till you just start to see faint lines in the picture, then back the control down till the lines go away. If the picture does not come up when you turn this up, and all you get is a blank screen, you will need to have this set repaired by a qualified repair person. Good Luck
