I'll give it a try, but just so everybody is on the same page, this is not a projection TV but a direct view.

There is one slot on the back of the set that looks something like a hole about the size of the end of a hat pin with a slanting line going about 40 degrees to the left then ending with another hole about half the size of the first one, so I guess there could be 2 adjustments in there. I just didn't want to futz with it in case it was something that could do something I might not be able to undo.

You can try to adjust the screen control a bit higher to get the picture to an acceptable viewing level.
At the back of the TV you will see the small opening, It should have 2 of them, one for the screen control and the other one should be focus. Adjust the screen control first and you might need to adjust the focus as well.
Hope this helps.

I have a JVC 27'' AV-27530 TV that the picture is very dark


An aging FBT if it still can be adjust using screen adjustment on FBT that will be a small tweak.

But if you are inexperienced with this, asked someone who knows how to do it to fix it for you.

i dont know this exact model, but i can advice you based on a slightly diffrent model. i hope the solution will be valid for your model as well: TV is digital controlled and have to be adjusted via service menu except the external focus and screen on back of (flyback) high voltage transformer. This is one you can try: Need plastic allen or plastic small flat blade screwdriver to fit these. Focus is top, bottom is the screen that set the overall brightness. Before adjusting, go in menu: press menu once, select picture quality, I think number 4, press 2 for "preset..", press 2 again to select normal. Back out by pressing zero repeatedly. It may ask you to save new settings, select yes. If screen is adjusted too bright, picture look lousy (washed out) the blacks will light up (becomes grey, or visible lines) this means you have actual fault that prevents you to get decent pix, that when it is time to take it in for repair.
