Sorry, just noticed your question. is the video on the cam completely black or do you see any indications of at all? Most cams have brightness and other settings located in their driver, so accessing the driver for the cam should allow you some control over the cam ' assuming ' the cam's driver is installed properly.
Tell what brand and model the cam is so I can verify that we are on the same page regarding your cam. Also need your O/S version since so many older cams are not working with Vista these days

My Kodak 4600 carousel slide projector - will not send light out through the lens. There is some gate or baffle or something blocking the light. How can I fix this problem?

It is probably the Dark Shutter adjustment. The procedure is:

Adjusting the DARK SHUTTER

[1] Do the removal for the LOWER HOUSING.

[2] Insert a thin SLIDE into the GATE MECHANISM; the DARK SHUTTER should open.

[3] Check the the PRESSURE PAD is correctly aligned with the the DARK SHUTTER.
[4] Bend the PRESSURE PAD to adjust the alignment.

This is from page 34 of the SERVICE MANUAL, which you can view in its entirety here:

I have a 50" RCA Scenium which I purchased in 2003. ($3000) I changed my third lamp yesterday...(the picture was getting dark after 3 years), and was very happy with the picture. Today, after about 2 hrs...


No, you do not have a bad circuit board, the problem is still from the lamp you fixed on it. Have it checked once again to see to it that there was no slight difference in the way you have been fixing it.

If you have a bad circuit board, there would be a complete alteration in the functioning of the television.

Since the problem has to do with the lighting and picture of the television, it has to do with either the lamp or t-com board, so check them both.

Take care

Monitor grays too dark

That means that the inverter board is faulty and myst be replaced.

The inverter board is an high voltage board that supplies AC power to backlight system. when inverter is faulty, you will get an extremely dark picture.

Parts must be tested before replacement.

My videos are dark and grainy

It's dependent on where the light is. If you're back lit your best bet is to check the box in the cam settings for backlight comp. (You can access the cam settings from the icon in the tray) If you're lit from the front using a lamp or something you don't need a lot a ton of light as too much light can white you out.
