    The picture is getting darker and darker slowly over time. The sound is good and all other operations are good. What's the fix?

    Same problem, if anyone finds out how to get a bright picture beyond what is available from the front screen please advise.

    I have a rear projection and when we looked inside it because of the dark picture my friend got shocked, by the lamp wires and could that cause a problem with the darkness of the picture

    I can't adjust the picture light enough to see it! I've tried all the troubleshooting ideas in the users guide and nothing works.

    I have the same problem as Develles -- the picture keeps getting darker. The brightness and contrast are amped up as far as they will go.

I have a tv with the same problem. I gained access to the service menu (using the remote) and was able to increase the brightness available from my regular remote menu. It may kill my tv quicker but it looks great now. To find out how to access the menu I did a search for 'jvc service menu' and found out what buttons to push. There are many warnings out there about the possibilities of ruining was was ok to start with, but I used particular care(pen and paper) to record the original brightness setting for my tv. best of luck and merry christmas

Dark shadow-like vertical streaks thru LCD screen (Sharp)


Hi, I have a Sony Grand Wega LCD Projection TV that has a blotted gray streak across the front of the screen. I only use a damp cloth to clean the window and that doesn't seem to help. It really shows up on light pictures and is unnoticed when the picture is a little darker. What can I do to fix this problem???

I contacted Sony directly. They were able to help me and didn't try to rip me off with some plan I didn't need.

Screen Brightness


Your ballast may not be up to 100% of its rated capabilities, thats often the cause when the brightness level gets to unwatchable levels. You may need to troubleshoot the ballast voltages a defective ballast can usually cause a lamp to loose about 60 % of its brightness levels. The other possibility could be the DLP mirrors need polishing but that is something better left to a repair shop as the DLP mirrors are sensitive

Picture seems to be alot darker than before. toshiba 62hm95


I just replaced a lamp in a Sony LCD projection that was just over a year old and it was bad. It was a VERY dim picture. You have a DLP but, in either case a dim or dark picture is almost always caused by the lamp.
