Picture is getting dimmer

I have had my 43H70 for about 8 years now and it seems that my picture is getting dimmer. I have increased the brightness level but no luck. Do the CRT's burn out?

After 8 years use, perhaps the lenses and mirror could do with a good clean.

Yes! CRT's do go weak with age and use. It is very possible that the CRT's are the problem.

The service tech can take voltage readings of the power supply, and biases to the CRT's to know if they are actualy weak.

From your description, I would thing very strongly that the CRT's are the problem.

My SONY KDF-50E3000 turns on but it looks like its weak, color it not bright and I already have it to 100 on the brightest level. Any idea on what it could be ?

Some televisions have a Power Saving Mode; the picture will become brighter if the Powers Saving Mode is turned off.
Some televisions have a Light Sensor; the picture will become brighter or lower depending on room lighting conditions. Turning off the Automatic Brightness Control may increase picture brightness.

The picture on my television seems to be getting darker. We have increased the brightness as much as the set will allow

This is an indication of bad picture tubes. There are three in this unit (red, blue and green). Even if is one, the cost of replacement is very expensive. Your next option is to purchase a Mitsubishi flat screen. Mitsubishi is one of the better brands you will find. Unfortunately the best can go bad. Thanks for asking and show all hands of support!

Check the lamp timer to see how many hours are on it.  If is is near the estimated end of life for your TV replace the lamp.  It will get dimmer as it approaches its end of life.  The lamp timer should be in your menu.

Picture brightness too low

Tom, Have you also attempted to clean the mirror as well as the inside of the screen? Focus as well as brightness issues can arise due to elements on these components as well. I would imagine you are having trouble with B+ V if this is not the case. Also if you have a HV probe you should get the service manual and check each flyback as well as the individual drives. Not familiar with Panasonic s method of return loop but if the voltages are wrong somewhere it will greatly effect performance of the circuit. Hope this helps. :) I smoke and have to clean mine regularly.
