I have an old Orion TV134R . The picture is so dark on it that I need night-vision goggles to watch it . How can I brighten it up? I don't have the original remote control. Thank you.


how about in the menu button you can not get an adjustment in brightness control. if the display in the screen is too dark either in any channel or even watching a movie from an input source like dvd player, then i may say that the picture tube need now replacement.

lock function.
Unlock : Hold down the MENU button for more than five (5) seconds to deactivate the OSD adjustment
