Screen going dark

The TV is starting to loose it's brightness. During the day it is almost impossible to see the TV. Do I need to replace the bulb (And if so how do I do it?) or is it something else?

Definitely. The lamp often looses oomph before it goes. Think about how long you have had your set. The average life seems to be around 2 years. Eventually your set will indicate the lamp needs replacing, if it hasn't already. I see your posting is about 6 months ago. Are you willing to verify for everyone else?

My Sony Trinatron has suddenly displayed a dark screen on all channels. You can see the picture but looks like it's nightime. I've tried ajusting the brightness but no result.


Hello,

does the TV bring out sound even as the screen display is dark?

Problem should be from the TV lamp/bulb. When a TV bulb/lamp is dying, it makes the pictire on the screen become dark and very hard to see.

Have the lamp replaced and hopefully, your screen should be perfect as before.

Let me know if you need directions in replacing the lamp, even though it is very simple replace.

Yours sincerely.

I just bought a new lamp 3 months ago, and the screen is now very dark. With the brightness all the way up the picture is dark.


Hi,

Your most likely fault is bulb failure. The only way to confirm a weak bulb situation is to replace with a known "good" bulb. Maybe your replacement bulb is not the correct one, or has a problem, like damage from shipping or poor quality to start with. We hear from many users that buy el cheapo bulbs from Internet shopping carts and have failure within 30-90 days. Many shopping carts churn out inferior copies, surplus or rejected products ranging from TV parts to doll clothes and costume jewelry.

Premature lamp failure can also occur with rough use such as:
  • Turning off TV and starting again while still hot.
  • TV turned on while Lightning strikes or other power line "bumps" occur.
  • Collisions with vacuum cleaners or balls bounced against TVs while operating.
  • Over-heating caused by poor ventilation or direct sunlight.
You may also have optical engine failure if images on the Sony Optical Engine Fault Gallery appear with the dim picture.

I have a 1994 zenith big screen the picture is showing really dar


It could be that the picture tubes have gone down on emission, there is a prcedure that can be tried to bring up the overall brightness but it is just possible that you will loose some picture quality. If it's a 1994 projo tv i am thinking of the three crt system, a gray scale alignment would probably correct the dark condition in your picture, again depending on how far gone is the emission in your picture tubes, if your projo tv is the dlp system, the bad news is that you could be needing some light engine repair. The color adjustment is possible with the availability of a service manual or in the case of the dlp system, light engine repairs or replacement are available from some on line stores.

doe sit seem like there is a "glow" around lightly colored items on dark screen. if so suspect the optical engine has internal contamination( dirt or dust) it is almost impossible to clean it then put all back together and not introduce any other contamination i suggest replacing optical engine under these circumstances.

Dark Screen and flickering black screen


I am having the same problem and I think it is the bulb in the TV or the board that the bulb is on. Only had mine for 4 weeks!! Apparently this is a common problem with LG TV's that occur as often as 3 times a year with a minimum cost of £290 just for the bulb!! Wish I had known that before I bought it!

Would recommended contacting the store you bought if from and ask them to repair it seeing as it is so new, I am awaiting the engineer at present!

Can watch tv only at night


it sounds like your bulb or backlight circuit is defective? if your not a tech then this is not a repair an experimenter should try to handle UNLESS it states in the owners manual that a bulb is a user replaceable part. good luck
