    Yeah that helps alot thank you. I got two more question though, I found out that when you get on the same level as the tv (The tv is up higher than the seating) it looks brighter. Is that just because it's a rear projection or could that also have something to do with the lamp? And question number two, the color quality is not that great on the tv, I have a small 15inch like 10 year old tv sitting next to it showing the exact same thing and it looks 100 times better than the 45inch projection tv. Is that another lamp problem or is that a different issue? Thanks again for the help

If your unit is about six years old I would say that it is the lamp. You should change it before it blows and causes more problems. I have a tip at http://www.fixya.com/support/r4168009-change_lamp_in_dlp_projection_tv which explains the problem, how to fix it and where to get the parts. Let me know if you need more help. Thanks for using FixYa and for the great rating.

    Question #1. It sounds like you have a lenticular screen. They are used on some units. They are brighter than non lenticular but only when viewed directly on. That is why the level drops when you are at an angle. #2. Generally smaller sets, and direct view in particular will look better. When you blow the picture up to the size of your set, and keep the same number of pixels, the quality has to suffer. It should not be extreme though. I would say you need to clean the lenses and screens. I have a tip at http://www.fixya.com/support/r4690955-cl... which explains the process for cleaning the lense.



    Thanks for using FixYa.

Dark picture..not bright picture


The whole point of a webcam is to be able to see the person you are speaking with, and let them see you. When the image broadcasted by your camera is too dark, the person on the viewing end won't see anything but shadows and dark shapes. Learn how to brighten your webcam image so the people you chat with can see you.

Place lamps behind and to the side of the webcam. This casts a light on your face, but the lamps will not wash out the image because they are behind the camera. Turn off lamps that are behind you. You have trouble seeing things when you are looking in the direction of the sun or a light bulb. Your webcam has the same problems. Don't make it stare at a bright light. Open up a white screen on your computer to brighten your face. The white screen will create the brightest possible light from you computer screen and help lighten your webcam image. This option is best when lamps are not available. Open up an empty tab in your Internet browser, or a blank Notepad document, and expand it to the full of your screen. Adjust your webcam settings. The settings available to you will depend on your webcam, but many of them offer a "Brightness" setting that you can increase to lighten your webcam. Open the program that came with your webcam, then look for a "Settings" or "Options" menu. Increase the "Brightness" setting until it has lightened your webcam enough.

Screen darker than normal which buttons do I hit to brighten


Go to settings, go to display, and move the bar up or look for icons at the top of your keyboard that looks like the sun and press them.  If your screen is still dark, then you need a new bulb.

PS2 Picture Problem


Hi MG86,

Most PS2 games are dark and auto brightness controls will casue your LCD tv to brighten up automatically in response the dark video coming from PS2 games. I suggest you get into the menu settings of your TV and find a setting that will shut off the auto picture controls.
