It is probably time to replace the lamp. Be sure to buy an original Sony lamp, as the aftermarket replacement lamps are known to have issues. If you liked this answer be sure to rate it. Thanks!

Turn set on picture is dark.. if I leave the TV on.. in several hours it's viewable.


I have seen several Samsung's including 3 that were only a few months old at the time where it was the lamp---one was so dim it was very hard to even see the picture or that the screen was lit.

Two suggestions here: One of course would be to buy and gamble and replace the lamp.

What I found in two of the three cases was when I removed the lamp the glass pillar inside it was "bent" at a angle from heat or a natural defect--in both those cases a new lamp cured this dim picture issue.

Set will monitor the lamp and if too dim may shut set off or even blink for a prolonged period of time.

If the lamp is over 2 years or age (average life) or was replaced with a non-Samsung lamp you are going to have to take the gamble to try another one.

Inspect the lamp---that pillar supports the filament and if bent the lamp is suspect at best.

How do I fix My 50 inch Hitachi Ultravision TV?


Likely the lamp in the set has failed here which does make sense if the picture was dim before---a lot of lamps just before failing all the way dim down.

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

Picture seems to be alot darker than before. toshiba 62hm95


I just replaced a lamp in a Sony LCD projection that was just over a year old and it was bad. It was a VERY dim picture. You have a DLP but, in either case a dim or dark picture is almost always caused by the lamp.
