I would change the bulb out, if it's not that at least you have a spare when it does go.
do you know how many hours are on your bulb?
good luck

Why is my toshiba 46h84 picture getting darker than before? Its becoming harder to see darker scenes in movies


It sounds like your lamp is getting close to the end of its lifespan.The lamp is what gives your screen its brightness.With time they start losing this brightness.If you were to wait to replace it till it goes out completely you would have a black screen.You can purchase a quality lamp at discount-merchant.com

Darker screen after replacing a samsung dlp lamp


DID YOU USE THE FOLLOWING LAMP
BP96-00826A (PHILIPS WRITTEN ON THE LAMP)? ALSO PLEASE CHECK THAT THE LAMP IS COMPLETELY SEATED OR IT WILL RESULT IN BRIGHTNESS ISSUES. THERE WAS ONE THAT I REPLACED THE LAMP IN AND I NOTICED THAT THE DIAL OPENING ON THE LAMP HOUSING WAS A BIT SMALL AND WOULD NOT ALLOW THE COMPLETE SEATING OF THE LAMP AND I HAD A DARK PICTURE AS A RESULT. I USED MY CORDLESS DRILL WITH THE PHILIPS HEAD STILL ATTACHED AND REAMED THE HOLE LARGER AND IT SOLVED THE PROBLEM.
HOPE THIS HELPS.

Strange Image Flubbering/Convergence Problem, Flutters From Dark Picture To Light Picture.


you "tooled around with the convergence board" well this chassis has several problems if the convergence doesnt hold replace both stks resolder around that area per tosh tech bulletin the bright problem is probably the hyper module all toshs should be checked with toshiba website to see if they were part of the recalls for power supply caps
