Re: dark over night

Does the TV have a light sensor? If so, turn it off.
The light sensor limits the backlights intensity at night or when it's dark in your room in order for better vieweing convenience.

If you are in a dark environment, it really pains your eyes when the view is too bright. Same works the other way around. If it's day, and light in your room. The light sensor will dimm the backlight for it isn't needed.

Let me know if this solved your question.

Flickering - Toshiba 62HMX84

it could be as simple as the tv feeding back on itself in a dark room.
it is adjusting the light level because of what it sees ambient in the room.
turn on a light near the tv and see if it stays constant now.

Problem with picture it is very dark

Just a guess,under the power button, inside the the flip[ down cover is a light dimmer,you can turn this on and off,in advanced settings under video,a flash light will trigger the sensor to see if it works the dimmer,if not it could be that circuit or your power supply needs work,I hope this helps!
