Question about Sharp 32F540 32" TV
I am contemplating buying a 32" standard screen sharp tv from this guy tomm. morning but he told me that when he watches scenes in movies or tv shows that are shot in the dark they are very dark, you almost can't see them. he said he bought the tv 3 yrs. ago but the problem started happening 6 mos. ago. i called the sharp cust. service line but they couldn't help me without the tv in front of me but they said it could just be stuck on some "ocs mode" but i was wondering if anyone could tell me what the problem may be and whether it would be costly to repair or more likely something i could fix myself. it's not a flat screen or anything special.. just a 32 inch sharp. I'd really appreciate some info.
Patrioticdog-I have just answered a similar problem, you can remove the back and find the flyback transformer. The big part with the round rubber plug hooked to the pix tube. there will be two controls on the flyback one for focus one for screen. turn up the screen ever so slightly,your screen will brighten up.Also if you check the main pcboard ass'y there may be a sub bright control same thing small adjustments. maybe tell the guy to give a bit off cause of repair ,good luck let me know. cooltek Feb15/08

Thanks cooltek......solution worked perfectly. I had the same problem with my sharp (tube t.v.) 32 inch and was about to throw it out until I came across this website and your suggestion. It was a little tricky to get at the buttons but once I did, it brightened up the screen immediately.
