Has the lamp ever been replaced? As lamps age they get darker screens. First though check to make sure the TV settings aren't accidentally on a dark setting. Go into the menu and see if increasing the brightness helps.Different picture modes like movie, games, vivid have different brightness settings vivid usually the brightest.

I have a 55in Samsung Dlp the color looks good but a little dark can't see picture if the movie is dark


You might need a new bulb, the bulbs get dim as there life diminishes. Replace the bulb to get a bright picture. Do not use cheap bulbs, an OEM bulb for that tv should be $60+. . Cheap clone bulbs will work but will fail a lot sooner

My dlp tv seems to be dimming.. Is that the lamp


it does sound like your lamp is going out. this happens after 2.5-5 years depending on the tv and amount of use. You can find cheap replacments and sometimes can get them a discount if you buy 2.

comment if you need sites or info on replaments

My Samsung DLP rear-projection TV has had a very dim picture for months. We have replaced the lamp once already.


How long ago was lamp replaced, also you can try cleaning dust off the lamp. Dust builds up on it and causes pre mature failure. Also moving the TV around can cause the bulb to fail after extended use. The bulb are only as good as any other regular bulb. They start taking longer to warm up then dont get as bright then fail totally. Some Tv's wont allow itself to turn on in some of those states.

Poor Quality HD Picture


The lamp would make you picture dark.The colorwheel will affect color quality.If brightness is an issue = lamp.If color is the issue = Colorwheel.

Tv gets bright and then get dim and dose this the entire time tv is on


If you watch a DVD, does the picture also flash? If not, it might be just the TV signal. Are you using a cable/satellite receiver? If so, check it's connections. If anything viewed on the TV, using different inputs and a different cable/wire, is flashing, it is a problem with the light engine or color wheel, if the TV is DLP.
