    i have tried replcing the lamp, but still...the picture is dark aqnd getting darker as time goesw on. on my model,m i can replace my own bulb, takews 15 minuters to replace aqnd back on air. ii dis this to help lo0wqer se3rvice3 cost, now not sure if it was a good idea. i am selling mine andusing my computers 32 olivea for now untill sold, i have almost everything sony, and this is the first time i could not fix. to me, it has to be the lamp doing this, some kind of energy saving thing maybe, but when i put a simple wave guide device, it lowers over time, telling me its loosing light rays. not hard to prove, hard to fix though, stronger lamp, but could get hotter than it is. love to hear from others.

I have been fighting a dark screen almos impossible to see dark scenes

this worked for me
the mirror has dust on it easy fix
remove front of screen by removing screws around the top and sides of the back don't forget to pop off the bottom cover in the front it just pulls off
then remove center cover screws
i could not disconnect the front electrical plug but it has enough slack to lift and then tip the front screen down to the floor
it will be obvious on the mirrors there is a big one it wasn't to dirty
lean in and look down there is a small mirror and lens they were filthy
there is a piece of foam trying to keep the dust out it was sucked backed so dust could get in
clean with windex and paper towels cloth didn't work
good luck

The Picture on my HD-52G886 Model is really kind of dark I can still see the picture and sound is fine but a little to Dark when I try to brighten it then its really dull white.

Changing the contrast will also help brighten your screen. For best results, try changing the contrast and the brightness, to find the perfect combination for your needs.

Picture is very dark will not brighten

We changed the lamp too.Picture is very good now. There isn't a way to test lamp because it is filled with gas.when changing lamp make sure you put everything back on covers etc. before checking to see if it works.

Blue Screen

no those tvs came with a black otuer screen that have rough ridges . If your screen is blue, someone may have replaced it with a dark colored plastic. You can get replacement screens at the following link, They are exspensive though.

Projection TV when turned on picture is dark can view slight images until dinning room light is turned on

Try hooking the TV to a different outlet fed by a different breaker. Does the problem go away? If so, the culprit may be a wiring problem in your house that is causing the TV not to get enough power unless the dining room light is on.If in doubt, consult an electrician to make sure both the dining room light and TV outlet circuits are working properly.

Problems with brightness on the hitachi 50v810

Yes, they dim as they age, and you've done well to get 3 years out of one.
Projection TV makers charge an arm and a leg for their replacement lamps. They make it easy to do but as a result the custom lamp assy is expensive. The trick is to just buy the bulb for your model TV from any number of us aftermarket sources at a fraction of the lamp price and install it in the old lamp yourself. really easy.
