Why does my sanyo dp46848 screen go dark but whites are too bright?


First try to gently push the cable between the main board and the LCD controller (T-CON) board and if that doesn't affect the image then replace the T-con board.

Voire 46" plasma tv- best color settings, to much white


The proper way to set flat screen tv's is opposite of old school CRT tv. First, find a movie with dark scenes and pause on a really dark part. Now set brightness only high enough to see some detail - no more. then go to a really bright scene and set contrast just high enough for good brightness. You may need to go back and forth a few times to get good setting.

Inside of your TV their is a fluid that keeps the tubes cool. Over the years this fluid will turn cloudy and cuase the screen to look dull, bright white, have halos, etc. You can get the fluid over the internet from various sources or your can get a complete kit including repair instructions from www.TvRepairKits.com.

Colors are distorted, brightness excessive


You may have a bad Fly Back transformer. The focus and screen(brightness) controls are located on this transformer. Some of the new RCA's have had problems with this transformer. If the screen control opens up the picture may either go dark or light which would cause your problem. Also a bad Picture tube could cause this. It shouldn't since the tv is not very old though. I've seen a few new ones go bad. Stargazer
