The bulbs only last for 4000 hours not 8000 or 2 - 3 years

The tv has a room light sensor,
shine a bright light at it , does picture get brighter?
other wise when it is cool open the bulb door , is it coated or blackened, Don't touch bulb at all.

and a heavy covering of dust on internal mirrors will cause the same effect.
you will need help to clean it.

I replaced both backlight boards but still having problem with LCD TV...it is too dark and color distortion.


Fault to its main board. Short circuited component/s at it. Contact any service technician; or the authorized service center. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Surf the site with patience. Pull up older posts. http://electronicshelponline.blogspot.com/ . In most cases, the main board might have to be replaced. If so, a software [firmware] update too might be necessary.

How do I know which part to replace in my LCD TV...is it the backlight or t-con or main board?


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.

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.

Darker picture and high pitched sound from back of tv. Also flickers.


Try changing the input device to something you are sure, works such as a DVD player.

Switch off TV manually, switch off power, remove plug and retry after 48 hours.

If problem persists, please refer it to a qualified service technician.

Picture keeps getting darker


I would need more information as to how fast the picture is getting darker. If it is happens over a matter of hours as you watch it the tv may have a lamp driver issue and requires service. If it has been getting darker over a period of months, you may need a new lamp.

Sound no picture


Hi there!
If the set is a few months old, it should still be under guarantee. Return to seller for repairs. You will need proof of purchase and purchase date. Good Luck, JUS004
