Have been fighting a dark screen almos impossible to see dark scenes

i found this from another person
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

Is it dark even with the menu settings up high? Is it dark even in the menu settings? It could either be a dark signal input OR Dim light source. Depending on model, if it's LCD or DLP based, you probably need a new bulb. If it's CRT based, you can bring them back to life with a simple adjustment. If it's a CRT (depending on model) the adjustment is either on the back, or on the front behind the covers. There then will be a plastic adjusting screw. BE CAREFUL, there is high voltage back there. You want the TV on and with the menu settings of brightness and contrast all the way up for this part. With a second person there to help spot (if controls are on the back) bring the screen adjustment screw slowly up. Depending again on model, their might be one, their might be three that say screen. Adjust them up until a little brighter then desired but not past the horizontal retrace lines. Lot of information, but really it's an easy fix to get a few more years out of any tube tv that's worn and keep them out of the landfills.

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.

I have have this TV for almost 3 yrs..now have a shaded area on the left side


The dark side of the screen causes of the lamp alignment or prism glass alignment. This is critical you have to consult your LG technician to do this. But if you have any background o repair consult the service manual. Please careful not to touch the prism quarts so that you maintained the clarity of picture and brightness on the screen.

Faded colors


If the picture is dark or messed up too bad, the magic focus will not function, are all the primary colors faded? RED GREEN BLUE? You might have a bad CRT, would call a service man to check out.

Dark picture


I think you have a regulation problem and all the voltage supplies are lower than what they should be,the fact that the picture gets distorted is one thing it lead me to believe that is the problem.This can be caused by a loose conection in the power supply ,I would suggest not to use it until it gets repaired or it might become worst and more expensive.Be careful if you remove the back and try to repair it yourself.
