It can be signs of getting old, but you can usually turn up the screen controls and get it brighter. it may need some cleaning. unplug the set and open the back and see if the 3 lenses are dusty. clean if necessary, and look up and see if the mirror is dirty (usually only smoke will soil the mirror) beyond cleaning, you will have to open the front and adjust while the set is running (dangerous to a novice) if you are comfortable working on live circuits, let me know I can talk you through the adjustment. as far as the remote issues, hopefully the buttons on the front panel are bad or locked up, you can unhook the wires going to them and hopefully the remote will stlil work, if not, you got bigger issues, time for professional service.

How do I lighten a dark picture


Hi Richard,
Please try reducing the contrast a little and increasing the brightness till the dark shots are clear. Please also check the back light setting. It should not be too low.This should make all the dark scenes clearly visible if it only a setting problem. In case the overall brightness has reduced, please consult a local TV Tech.

When I take pictures at night or in the house when it's darker they don't come out clear or bright. I've tried changing the settings and used the flash. I would appreciate you help. Thanks


Most of the present day personal cameras cannot have a good flash output and so the THROW of light is limited, So when it is used for night shots try and use the flash as close as possible to the SUBJECT as the flash will not COVER THE SUBJECT if FAR away.
This can be the reason for the poor shots. Also try to manually set the camera for higher sensitivity .Use of a SLAVE flash will improve your shots. You can buy this as an accessory.

The overall picture is much darker. Night scenes are almost impossible to see.


The brightness settings must have been changed somehow. Just go into your tv menu (there should be a menu button on your remote). Navigate to Picture Settings (this maybe different but there should be something similar) and move the brightness slider up but not too much or the picture will begin to look "washed out". Hope that helps.

I think you are right about the backlight. You need to replace the backlight tube or, if you can, replace the TV. Good Luck.

Shooting modes


The Shooting modes are as follows: PROGRAM (P)/AUTO Modes Used for general photography. The camera automatically makes the settings for natural color balance. In PROGRAM (P) the brightness (exposure compensation) can be adjusted. In AUTO mode you cannot use exposure compensation or panorama features. Portrait Suitable for taking a portrait-style shot of a person. The camera automatically sets the optimal shooting conditions. Landscape + Portrait Suitable for taking photos of both your subject and the landscape This setting allows for both the foreground subject and background landscape to be in focus. The camera automatically sets the optimal shooting conditions. Landscape Suitable for taking photos of landscapes and other outdoor scenes. The camera automatically sets the optimal shooting conditions. Night scene Suitable for shooting pictures in the evening or at night. The camera sets a slower shutter speed than is used in normal shooting. If you take a picture of a street at night in any other mode, the lack of brightness will result in a dark picture with only dots of light showing. In this mode, the true appearance of the street is captured. The camera automatically sets the optimal shooting conditions. If you use the flash, you can take pictures of both the subject and the background. Sports Suitable for capturing fast moving action without blurring. Even a fast moving object will appear to be stationary. Beach and Snow Suitable for taking photos at the beach or on snow covered mountains; situations where there would be vey bright conditions where the sun reflects off of sand or snow. Self Portrait Enables you to take a picture of yourself while holding the camera. Point the lens towards yourself and the focus will be locked on you. The camera automatically sets the optimal shooting conditions. The zoom is fixed in the Wide position and cannot be changed. Movie The movie mode enables you to take a Quicktime movie for either viewing on the LCD or on your computer. The movie will record as long as the shutter button is depressed and or until there is no storage space left on the memory in use. No sound is recorded.
