Question about Pioneer SD-532HD5 53" Rear Projection Television

3 Answers

Night time scenes have become almost impossible to see.

While watching movies or even broadcasted low light scenes are very difficult to see. Do I need a new kind of bulb or something for my projection monitor receiver? Is something like that available? I hate to call the store that sold it to me and feel like an idiot because my TV is now 8 years old. I don't think it should be obsolete at this point. I've changed the mode between STD to Movie, game and user and there is very little difference. All I really want is a "brightness" button! HELP!!!!

I had the same problem. Figured the 8 yr. old set was on it's last legs. Read everything I could find and nothing helped. But, luckly I did the following and it's like new again! try the following: Press MENU, selectSETUP, select DPO, set it OFF. DPO automatically controls Contrast, BLACK LEVEL (Brightness) and Color. Now press Menu, select PICTURE, then select BLACK LEVEL and run it out to plus 25. your picture should be brighter. Then adust Contrast,Color and Black level to your liking.
Good luck!

I am pretty sure your set is a CRT Projector. The projector will need to be replaced - not Cheap.

Picture too dark. Particularly noticable during night scenes in movies. Adjusting brightness all the way up helps, but not enough.


hi,
Try to claen the top of three crt guns inside you tv. also the reflecting mirror behind the screen.
one more thing you have to check, that is the CRT base sockets. After some years of use its contact will become bad. As there is three crt guns there will be three crt base sockets on the neck of each. Replace all the three crt base sockets at the same time. It will improve picture quality.
ok

Dark scenes are impossible to see


This is a fundamental limit of Ti DLP. The part can not reproduce low grey scale, so low light film is dominated by artifacts. It helps to sit farther away from the screen. The color shift is caused by a factory tollerance on the color wheel, but there is no user adjustment for it.

Ultravision image dark


Good Day, tfarmer;

Since you have replaced the lamp, which is the normal cause for a dark picture. Have you checked your video settings?

The brightness level should be set at about 55 to 60%, the contrast should be set at about 90% and the video temp should be at normal or high.

If all these are set about this way, then I would think that the light engine might be going bad.

Good Luck, big IRISH.

I have a sharp aquos xld1e and it is still under warranty. When viewing a dark scene in a movie the scene becomes too dark and then brightens. This happens on every dark scene it continually changes from...


Take it back-before the warranty runs out. Once in a great while you get a lemon. Stand firm. Don't let them 'fix' it.. You want a new one. The warranty time clock is still running while they are trying to fix it. You want another one-with a new warranty.
