Pull the back off and tap on the deflection board. Does it get brighter? If so, you have a bad connection and or cold solder joint.

Black and white picture with red lines vibrating with sound.

More info would be nice. Are you using HDMI or Component cables. If it is component cables (red, blue, green for video white and red for audio) Check your red and blue connection. Green alone will give you a black and white picture.
If you are using an HDMI cable, replace the cable to see if this changes anything or if you have another tv swap cables to see if problem stays with tv or moves to another tv.

Pictures very dark, Brightness all the way up. Contrast does not adjust

I have the same problem. I was able to temorarily fix the issue by taking the back cover off and blowing all of the dust out. But this only worked for two days. Now the problem is back. Did you fix the issue with your tv? Thanks.

Picture has a blue shadow

Seems convergence out IC is fried in TV so it gives blue shadow.

Check out Convergence Out IC which you need to replace in TV, if you have enough experience of repair of big TV, necessary tools and know basic electronics.
