GE Television Dark Shadows

My television is really dark. Commercials are usually viewed fine if there are a lot of colors, but during programs, faces are extremely dark almost black and the background is black. Please help. The television was given to me by a friend who told me of the problem, but I didn't realize how bad it was until we hooked it up. She said they had a repair man come and fix the power button and shortley thereafter the dark shadows appeared. Again, please help!

Picture has ghost shadows in the faces of people mainly news anchors. Light colors like whites and oranges also have shadows. What could be causing this?


If it does not really display this when a DVD etc is played via a rear audio/video input it is not the set.

Modern cable or sat signals often are compressed and sets cannot on close up views keep up with the signal--when signal is compressed it causes this kind of issue--no way around it.

The picture tends to get really dark during dark scenes. Can hardly see faces or details. Goes back to normal during brighter scenes.


the only thing you can do is adjust your brightness, contrast, sharpness controls. every station is different especially the sound is louder on some channels and lower on some.

The dark color of my tv was change unspected the dark color now are blue, violet,and other exept black, the dark scense can't see. please help me.


I believe you either have a bad LCD Controller Board or a bad Main Board. The only way to know is to replace one. If it doesn't fix it , replace the other. Or replace both and it should be fixed.
I hope this helps,

Have a Vizio P42HDe purchased in 2005. Right half of screen is fine. Left half is series of small vertical bars (various colors). Sometimes they go away and all of screen is okay. Any ideas?


I bought mine in Jan 2005 and today it did the exact same thing....doesn't go away. Seems like a 5 yr. lifespan on these.
Will try a Panny for Christmas !!

If you are comfortable working inside the set, I can suggest the following:

1) Open up the back and locate the flyback transformer (part with large red wire coming out the top). There should be 2 adjustment posts on the back of it.

2) adjust the top one slightly clockwise as you are facing ht back of the TV. This should cause the overall picture to brighten. Don't turn it too much as you will then see the "retrace" lines.

3) Adjust the lower one to focus the picture.

That should help a bit. If not, then the picture tube is probably at the end of its life. Keep me posted with your results.
