Re: dark picture on toshiba tv 32af44
This could be a few different things:
1- I would check the G2 voltage coming from the HV Transformer, if low, transformer is bad.
2- It could be your picture tube (CRT)
3- Find someone who gives free estimates ( good luck on that one)
4- If it is your transformer you might spend $200.00 for the repair, that's up to you of coarse.
A 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

Sometimes there is a volume on older cable boxes. Unfortuanately adjusting the volume can be a chore because most cable remotes are volume locked to the TV input. You can try and press the cable button on your cable box remote and see if the volume will adjust, if not I would call your cable company and see if they can help, and possibly replace the box. Usually you can take the box to a store for your provider in the area and they can swap it out.
Try whether you have the same problem when using a DVD player. Go to settings of menu, select picture settings, try adjusting the backlight level/brightness/contrast/sharpness/color etc. to your liking. Check whether you get the same problem if you use the same input on another TV.
Unfortunately, this is not an easy diagnosis. It could range from being an issue with the brightness level (which can be accessed from the menu) or an internal processor defect.
First access the menu and verify the brightness levels and contrast levels.
Next, make sure the problem isn't in a single input by changing the inout of the component that you are viewing. Component cable inputs are notorious for going bad so try an HDMI if one is available or even a basic composite cables will work for diagnostics.
If the picture is still dark after this it's probably a processing problem and will require professional maintenance.
looking on the back of ur tv near the cable input jack there might be an area where u can adjust the brightness on the flyback transformer. if there isn't you will have to remove the back of the tv and adjust it this way. PLEASE DO NOT TOUCH ANYTHING OTHER THAN THE BRIGHTNESS KNOB ON THE FLYBACK, CAUSE YOU MAY BE SHOCKED. so please be careful.
Solution for the Hitachi 50V715. I contacted Hitachi and they told me there is a problem with the color engine with this and other Hitachi models. They will replace the part for free, but first I need to take it to a repair shop to verify the problem and I have to pay labor. Not too bad considering the cost of the engine.
Hi, please try to a different cable, reseat the bulb & try a different input source such as VCR, DVD or different computer. You can also try replacing the bulb. If issue still present call the projector manufacturer for service or they may excersie the great warranty option of that projector.
The green gun in your picture tube is set a little too high.
If you are experienced in removing the back cover of TV's,etc., you may try to find the drive and/or bias controls either on the circuit board that plugs on to the neck of the picture tube or mounted on the main circuit board of your TV. These controls are usually labeled. If you can find them, locate the green bias or drive control and back it down a little while watching the picture through a mirror. A slight adjustment may correct your problem.tJIS IS CALLED GRAY SCALE ADJUSTMENT.
BE CAREFUL THERE ARE SOME HIGH VOLTAGE CIRCUITS NEARBY. WORK WITH ONE HAND AND USE AN INSULATED TOOL TO MAKE ADJUSTMENTS
I hope this may help you.AGAIN BE CAREFUL!!
