    well i notice it the most when watching video on my ps3. i have alot of mp4 video loaded on it.picture is awesome until dark scenes come along.i am using hdmi for connection. i tweaked some picture settings and it helped a little.

    yea i was kinda starting to think that might be the problem. would you recommend adjusting any picture settings to help it in any way?

    I have this same problem when watching blue ray movies on the PS3 and I am using the expensive HDMI cables. I have tried adjusting all the picture settings and nothing makes it look and better. Any ideas?

The mp4's could be contributing to the problem. It's the compression you are seeing. It's the same when my Tivo is playing. It's compressed video. It just makes it seem worse when the screen is dark.

I get this too with my Samsung. Are you watching HD content or standard (cable, satellite) tv? If it's the latter, that's why. The lack of quality really shows on analog signals. The shows that I Tivo look horrible a lot of times. Another thing is the connection to the television. If you are using standard RCA connectors, try switching to either component or HDMI.

Hope this helps.

    I would really just mess with the contrast and brightness until you find a happy medium. Sharpness might help, but doubtful.

Color is grate on my Sharp 26" TV. However night scenes have become almost too dark to see. I have tried to adjust the settings but no improvement. Is this a fixable problem? Using Comcast Cable a


Check 'brightness' and 'contrast' settings in (usually) 'picture' menu. Use a recording (DVD etc.) of a dark scene to adjust the picture. My TV (not Sharp) has several pre-programmed picture settings. If yours has that, maybe one of them will be good. Otherwise, use manual settings.

Red cirle in the center of my screen durning dark scenes


This sounds like the light engine has gone bad or has dust/dirt in the light tunnel or DMD assembly. The light engine would have to be removed to check for dirt. If the engine is bad it can cost over $800 just for the engine not including shop charge. Unit would need to be taken to a repair shop to find out what is actually causing the problem.

Sorry to tell you but JVC is a well-known un-reliable brand and if it's cheap, probably even worse. U may have screen burn from leaving a games console on while plugged into the tv, even if its not showing the game, it will burn it onto the screen. :(

TRY AUTO PROGRRAMMING AL YOUR CHANNELS AGAIN. IF THIS DOES NOT FIX IT YOU NEED A MAIN TOTAL ASSY THE BLOTCHINESS IS A LCD PANEL PROBLEM. THE PANEL NEEDS REPLACING.
