Hi,

This problem can result from the aging of various components within your set, in general with older TVs, particularly sets of 15 years or older for example tend to suffer from capacitors that degrade - effectively reducing the maximum level of picture illumination available. Another issue for old sets that have been used extensively is that of the picture tube's electron gun aging, over time the gun produces fewer electrons to fire at the phosphor coating hence causing less "glow" - this can be sometimes improved by adjustments to the tube. All in all the set may require a decent service to ***** what aged components need replacing. Some later TVs do have a trimpot on the flyback transformer to allow the tube's brightness to be increased, but most older sets lacked this feature. SHARP did have this feature on many of it's 90s TVs but it needs to be adjusted with care by suitable techs due to the dangerous voltages present.

Hope this info is of some help, Regards.

Panasonic dmp-bdt220 causes the screen to darken and lighten


It sounds like you have the unit's analog video outputs connected to a TV/Video combo or some time of a recording device. Going through a recording device can cause the image to brighten and darken.

Try going to your menu or input select and you should see a scale to darken or lighten input. The remote should have a button on it to let you get to main menu.

Model CS-3515R, has buzzing noise, screen darkens, then noise stops\r\nand screen lightens up, then repeats about every 15 minutes.


There is some short in the inside circuit of your TV. Horizontal output transistor may be leakey. Replace it with a new one of same type and number. If it doesn't rectify the problem, LOT should be replaced.

I have a Ti-89 and my screen is really dark all of a sudden. I cant figure out how to lighten it! I can read it, but only if i turn it just right and look at it up close. How can i lighten it?


Lighten the screen by holding down the green diamond key and then holding down the - key. If you go too far, use the + key instead of the - to darken the screen.

To whom it may concern, The screen is very dark. How can I fix it? Also, how can I change the brightness? thank you for your time!


To adjust the screen contrast (to lighten screen or to darken it)
  1. Press the [2nd] key and RELEASE it.
  2. Press and HOLD the UP Arrow to darken screen, or
  3. Press and HOLD the DOWN Arrow to lighten it.
Keep pressing the UP or Down arrows (whichever you need to press) until the screen contrast is adequate.

In your case, the screen is too dark, so you must press the DOWN arrow to lighten it.
