    Like so many others with your type of problem it really is hard to say how much this would cost it really does depend on what may be wrong, flyback is gray or black has to wirers one goes to crt broad on the neck of picture tube and other long wire goes on top of your tube this is called anode botton, set can produce 27,000 volts up to 30,000 volts on 27inch screen.call your local tv repair shop to see how much check out fee is and if you have them repair set is fee subtracted from repair bill thats what i do!

Samsung LED TV picture went dark, still watchable but backlight is set @ 10, Contrast 95, Brightness 100, Sharpness 67, color 32


Back - light problem. Check and replace damaged component/s at its back-light inverter board, or replace this board as card basis. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Surf the site with patience. Pull up older posts. It will be best to replace the inverter board as card basis.
http://electro-medical.blogspot.com/
To some model sets; especially LED back-lighted types; the back-light inverter circuit will be part of the main power supply board [SMPS]. In such cases, the power supply board might need replacement. To some models sets, the back-light inverter and SMPS section circuit will be integrated at its main board itself. If so; the main board should be replaced. To some models of sets, all these section circuit will be integrated at its main board. If this is the case, you have to replace the main board.

I have a vizio Vt470m....the picture has always been perfect. All of a sudden when picture shows scenes with very little light (dark scenes like at night, space, low light) the black color almost look


Either the TCON board or the LCD panel has failed. Start by replacing the TCON board. If the problem persists, the panel is bad and the cost to replace it would be too high.

Picturess are too green


there are advanced color correction modes,
Blue or dark pictures/videos
Keep your shooting distance inside of 2ft to 3ft, depending on
visibility and ambient light.
If you are using only one light, considering adding another light
(dual lights) or/and external flash accessory. The ideal
set-up is a combination of a light plus flash.
Consider purchasing the SeaLife Wide Angle Lens (SL975). The
fisheye lens allows you to get closer to the subject and fit more
into to picture frame.

For SeaLife camera with external light accessory (No external flash):
1) Set the camera's scene mode to Sea mode or Snorkel mode
2) Change camera's PHOTO and VIDEO White Balance
settings to DAYLIGHT.
For SeaLife camera with external light and flash accessories:
1) Set the scene mode to Ext. Flash mode
2) Change the VIDEO White Balance setting to DAYLIGHT.
For other underwater camera brands:
1) Set the Scene mode to "Auto" or "Underwater" scene
mode, as recommended by the camera manufacturer.
2) You may also need to change the White Balance setting to
DAYLIGHT depending on the camera's underwater color
correction or if pictures/video turns out red.

I have a KDF-50E2000 that has two problems. 1) makes a vibration noise when the cooling fan runs. 2) The picture seems excessively dark during daylight hours. Especially during scenes of night time...


For the vibration noise, may guess would be the color wheel or one of the Fans.

As for the dark picture, it could be a bad lamp, dirty mirror or lens.

You can try cleaning the lens/mirrors of the set with a lint free cloth and a cleaning liquid made for cleaning glass. The dark image can sometimes be caused due to dust on these parts. If that does not work then I am afraid that you need to purchase replacement CRTs(the three tubes at the back of the set). Each of them produce one color - Red, Green and Blue and all 3 have to be replaced to resolve the problem, unless you can visually identify a malfunction with one of the tubes(If one of tubes is a lot dimmer than the other 2).

Yes it could be other things, but to be honest, I wouldn't waste time or money on a set that old. If the picture was perfect and something else went bad, perhaps a small investment would be worth it, but with your description, I'd pass.

Time for a new set.
