    I've tried that, it doesn't work. This happened to a DVD player I had a few years ago, but I threw it out instead of fixing. Any other ideas?

    I have the same thing going on; when I'm playing a DVD the picture goes from light to dark and it keeps cycling through. It doesn't happen when I play a VHS tape or watch TV through the antenna. I've tried a different DVD Player and had the same light/dark result.

Screen goes dark

Fading typically is related to power supply heating or connection opening on the digital drive. You might try fan into vents just to prove this, or plug in outside in the cold, and see how long it is on in test mode.
