The lamp only has a life span of about 8000 hours if you are past that then it maybe time to replace. If you average out 6 to 8 hours a day X 365 x years you will get the average hours used, not sure how old you set is but the formula works.

    - Thank you. would that be all 3 bulbs>>>>>>>not sure what you mean, your tv only has one bulb, but it isin't the lamp if it is light up, that would be the color wheel or better yet the Optical light engine which would need to be repaired or replaced.



    I have my 52HMX85 all over the basement right now because of the Optical light engine, I have a price of $350.00 re-furbished and $602.00 US plus shipping.



    I am awaiting one other option and thats the color wheels and all the parts and pieces that go with that, and I will due the change out.

My Vizio LCD TV screen fades to dark. Sound stays on.


I w having this same issue when watching a Blu-Ray disc. I found it to be dependent upon what picture mode the TV was set to. By this I mean certain picture modes would cause the TV to dim during dark scenes of a movie. Changing the picture mode helped a lot.

Good Day, hazzletp;
You may have a bad comb filter or one of the CRT's (picture tubes)(cathod ray tube), are going bad. Call an Authorized Service Center and have them come to your home and give you a written estimate b4 repair. Cost AVG $550.00, if CRT is bad go shopping.
Good Luck, big IRISH.

Screen goes dark


Fading typically is related to power supply heating or connection opening on the digital drive. You might try fan into vents just to prove this, or plug in outside in the cold, and see how long it is on in test mode.
