The projection tubes are wearing down. This is a common cause of the decrease of brightness range.

You can call a service man who knows the model of set and has the service manuals. He can go through the set and confirm if the tubes are actualy wearing down or there are failed components. If the tubes are wearing, he can increase the bias setups to the tubes to make them a little less dark. This may not last very long.

If there are failed components he can troubleshoot for them and replace them.

Personally, I would be shopping for a new set.

Will not turn on


It seems that your unit has some sort of PSU fault, or a problem that is shutting down the Power Supply Unit, PSU. This happens so that no further damage, and possible fire will occur.
You need to take the unit to a reputable service centre/man and ask for a firm "Quote" for the work to be done. It is that sound that gives it away, this is a typical switchmode Power Supply problem.

You may have a bad convergance chip, a bad CRT( picture tube ), CRT Board ( board pluged into the picture tube),or a bad video chip. Although this is somwhat a common problem on this model of set, I have found many different fixes. Sorry I can't be of more help. Good Luck
