Hi,
I'm not sure about your Sony tv model that has dark picture problem, let me know model number of tv as it would be written on label pasted at rear to diagnose possible cause of dark picture.
If it is lcd projection tv then lamp would be cause of dark picture.
Thanks.

Hi I have a Samsung PS50C7HD when I'm watching it and there's darkness there's some green snow on the screen,also the screen seems to flicker sometimes any idea how I can fix this problem? I've changed the...


Sounds dodgy. If yore using a multi socket unit - just unplug - remove video recorder, phone, skype, internet etc. wait 1 minute If its still the same - there's a problem with the tv - if its fixed - add one at a time to identify the cause - then that's the cause not the tv.

The tv seems really dark.57in theatrewide hd toshiba


Go into the tv menu and select the Preferences menu and set your picutre preference from Theater to Normal. The TV is currently in Theater mode, wich is for viewing with no lights on in the room. Switching it to normal lightens the pictue a lot.

Lcd tv sets are lit by small glass florescent tubes called cold cathodes and, are powered by: ballasts called inverters... these go out just like your office florescent lighting the parts can be purchased online from electronic parts houses and, are easily replaced

Really dark (not usable) screen


The backplane power supply, and or the backplane lamps are probably dead. In some models these parts are replaceable. In most of the models, the backplane lamps are an integral part of the screen unit, and cannot be replaced without changing the complete screen unit.

Call the manufacture tech support to find out where you can send the set for a proper service estimate.

Dark screen


Your backlight is probably burned out. It is repairable, but I recommend having a computer repair shop take care of it.

PS2 Picture Problem


Hi MG86,

Most PS2 games are dark and auto brightness controls will casue your LCD tv to brighten up automatically in response the dark video coming from PS2 games. I suggest you get into the menu settings of your TV and find a setting that will shut off the auto picture controls.

Sound normal, Screen display super-dark.


I would try it on another tv. although as far as the cable goes, on the inside sound and video runs on different sets of wires, so it really could be either. Just need to test it on another tv.
