These tvs are LCD they have no tube to fill or color wheel.
You need to clean the glass light filters and lens.
If you remove the back and unplug the 9 plugs that go to the fans and LCD board/light housing it has 4 screws that hold it in to the front of the tv. 30 min Job.

Tv brightness/vibrant


Most of the projection lamps are recommended to be replaced after 2 years. The older they get the more dim they will become. I would suggest replacing the lamp again. Some of the aftermarket lamps do not work as well as the factory replacement. I always spend the extra money and get one from Samsung.

If it is dark because of an adjustment the "picture" adjustment would make a difference.
The most likely cause of a dark picture on this type of set would be the lamp getting near the end of it's life. This set should use part number, A-1606-034-B and is something you can probably change yourself, check your owners manual, it shows how. Follow the instructions and remember to have the power chord unplugged while you are changing lamp and to put the lamp door back on the set before you connect the power chord again.
