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.

My sharp 32c540 picture is dark since i bought it brand new 6 years ago.


You may just have to make a different kind of adjustment.

This is what is called a direct view or crt type TV.

Inside on the main board (see attached photo) is the "flyback" transformer.

Note the two little controls embedded in it----top one is focus--leave it alone.

Lower one is SCREEN and a very slight upwards or right adjustment will bring the overall brightness up.

You want to adjust it just till with brightness on set all the way up you have a normal picture.

Too much and you get excessive brightness and trace lines and or further too much shuts set off.

Some sets have two holes in back of cabinet and small tool can get in and adjust the LOWER or screen control and others the back has to be removed.

Lay set face down on padded surface, remove back screws and set upright---do not touch anything inside with set on when you make the adjustment--control is plastic and a plastic tool a good idea--I have used regular screwdriver but know what not to do.

Let me know if you have questions 98% chance just need the Master Screen bumped up a little bit.

It is more than likely a convergence issue rather than a color issue.
