Zenith DVC 2200 brightness issue

When I watch certain DVDs they fade back and forth from light to dark. Today I am watching Finding Nemo and it is doing it. The other night I watched A Cinderella Story and it was fine. Why does it have this problem on some DVD's but not on others? Is there anything I can do to fix this issue?

My Vizio LCD TV screen fades to dark. Sound stays on.


I w having this same issue when watching a Blu-Ray disc. I found it to be dependent upon what picture mode the TV was set to. By this I mean certain picture modes would cause the TV to dim during dark scenes of a movie. Changing the picture mode helped a lot.

Video fluctuations


Is this happening with commercial dvds or disks that you've burned? If it's happening with commercial disks, I would suggest trying the player on a different TV to see if the same thing happens. If it does, something is wrong with the player.

The warranty on the player is 90 days from the date of purchase. A receipt is required for warranty exchange.

Coby 224 Screen Slowly Fades to Dark and Back To Light


Usually if your getting it with the MENU then your connection is weak, are you going through a VCR or some other type of device besides directly to the tv? Try hooking unit directly to the tv. Besides that, its possible you could of messed with the settings, go to the menu, go to advanced and do a reset to make sure no settings were adjusted, the disk has to be out of the tray while you do the reset.

Sharp LC-42D43U 42 in. HDTV fades and fluctuates in brightness.


Hello bcall8,

Have you tried watching the TV function when just viewing normal TV? Does the problem still occur? I think the you may have a signal problem in the path between the DVD player and the TV, check your cables. Now what might also be the issue is input of the TV try using different inputs, sometimes there are incompatibilities with some of the input ports and equipment used on those ports. This happens often. If all else fails I would get a schematic and start looking at the RF, HDMI, Composite Video, S Video, and component video inputs and start comparing signals with the information from the schematic.

I hope this helps,
Thank you,
