Quite typical, for an aging lamp about to go out, to get dim.

I have a Samsung 42" DLP. During the daytime I can hardly see the people and definition on the screen. It is all very dark. Nightime is better.


check your video settings there are 3 or 4 usually that all have various levels of brightness, it may be set to one of thelower ones. or you can go into tv menu and try kicking up the brightness. if no luck the lamp may be failing if not recently replaced they begin to make screen darker before they fail.

Dark picture on RCA Scenium 61 in DLP


Yes, the lamp will gradually get darker as it nears it's end. The rolling lines sounds more like the set is on a local channel for the cable hook up. If your local area has a channel 3 or 4 live terestrial broadcast simply tune the cable box output to the other one, the same for the tv.
If this is cable/local broadcast issue it will go away in Febuary when the NTSC broadcast ends.
