Sounds like you may have cold solder connections,solder around flyback transformer,if you or someone you know can solder,also adjust screen drive control see if this will bring your picture brighter.It really is hard to tell you exactaly what your problem could be untill looked at by a repair shop.

I have a 21inch TV (LG golden eye) which is 10 years old from and now i am facing a problem that when i switched on the tv the standby LED of the tv blinks for a few seconds and then automatically off....

This is line output transformer problems. Before changing LOT,watch any dry soldering is there and also check vertical output ic is good or bad ?by replacement methode.
NOTE- if you know the protection pin, isolate the pin and switch on tv through 200watts bulb seriesly.then watch the symptomes.
Thanking you

My TV is almost 5 years old. Barely used more

Sounds like the TV has lost the VIDEO and only has color. Make sure all the cables are secure and good. 2) Reset the TV by unplugging the TV or any BOX you have attached to TV. Unplug both from a/c for 3-5 minutes, plug back in and turn both on.
If no fix. Go to service Company that is Authorized and get an estimate, possible cost $450.00 +. Too many areas of concern to help you with particulars.

Good Luck, Big Irish.

Screen is too dark

with a flashlight at the back of the set often times there is an adjustment you can make WITHOUT having to open the set!!!

look for a little hole in the back of the plastic cabinet labeled SCREEN then with a flat screwdriver holding only the plastic handle, insert it into the hole and SLOWLY rotate until the screen brightens up until it is watchable.

This is compensating for age in the picture tube. you may get a few day or a few more years! of a much better picture.

If you start seeing some thin lines on the screen then back off you have gone too far. Do this adjustment with the brightness and contrast controls on the menu turned up all the way.

it is also safe to play with the focus adjustment right next to the screen if thing seem a little blurry. you will need two people one to watch from a distance for best picture.

Dark picture (HELP)

Open up the back of the set but be very carefull. Notice a large black block with a large red wire that runs up to the picture tube. on one side of that large block where the thick red wire is comming out of are two controls, one should be marked focus or F and one should be marked screen or S. With the set operating normally and not touching anything else, slowly turn the control marked screen or S clockwish till the picture gets bright enough. If you go too bright the set will shut down or you see small thin white lines so back down on the control. then touch up the focus and your good to go. good Luck.

Dark Blue Screen

You might've done this already, but first I would try the "Magic Focus" The button can be found all the way to the left of the buttons panel on the tv itself. If that has no effect, try playing around with the settings within the tv. Click menu on the remote and see what happens when you try settings like color, balance, and contrast. Report back.
