Got interrupted-
If this is a standard CRT, there is at least one internal adjustment that can be made and the typical one (located on the flyback transformer) has a tendency to drift with age and reduce the accelerating voltage. In addition, it is possible that the phosphor is aging too so some compensation can be made with the adjustment mentioned. Some sets may also have separate adjustments (usually for two of the three colors) that can be tweaked to compensate for age.
The flyback is the high voltage transformer that produces the horizontal sweep and high voltage for the CRT and often has two adjustments; one for the high voltage (misset this can wash out the screen) and another for focus which can change when the HV is adjusted.
In any set of this type, there are dangerous voltages exposed inside and a well-insulated tool should be used for the adjustment which can accept either a flat blade or Phillips type.

sounds like a power supply problem or something that affects brightness is drawing too much current--not a do it yourself fix and price a repair estimate to see if worth fixing or not.

Some of the Samsung sets did have a issue known where the picture flickers with scene changes etc.

That is on the power board and in some cases a jumper on that board needs to be removed-----design flaw well known.

The overall picture is much darker. Night scenes are almost impossible to see.


The brightness settings must have been changed somehow. Just go into your tv menu (there should be a menu button on your remote). Navigate to Picture Settings (this maybe different but there should be something similar) and move the brightness slider up but not too much or the picture will begin to look "washed out". Hope that helps.

Negative effect on Bright areas of Monitor/TV


Try demagitizing the moniter. In the monitor's menu it will have a picture of a magnic , select it. Sometimes it is listed as degrous. After selecting this, your screen will seem to spin then settle. If your still have problems, a magnic may have come close to the moniter while it was being stored, and that will ruin the picture.

Sony bravia dims randomly


There should be a setting in the menu of the TV to turn off the auto dim feature (used for adjusting the brightness of the picture depending on ambient room lighting) I don't have a Sony LCD here with me to walk you through the menu settings, but I am certain it is there somewhere. (Chased this issue for the wife who had the same displeasure you're having)
