Ultravision image dark

The image seems to be dark on my set. After the original I have replaced two bulbs with the exact same kind and still have the dark picture. Example: Watching a movie that has a night scene you cannot see anything.

    We changed the bulb but since then our picture is so dark we can't see the picture espcially on night scenes in movies. We think that maybe this bulb was not as bright and now ordered another bulb. Is the contrast problem because of bulb? We are worried that a new bulb won't change problem, then what? We did change settings for brightness and contrast but there was no difference. It also seems that it takes screen more time to warm up to even see the picture. HELP.

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.

HP LaserJet M5025 MFP scans too light. Under default job options, image adjustment, darkness set to 3. The printer was sent to us upside down. We recently installed a brand new cartridge. Any suggestions?


If you print the configuration pages from the administration>information menu and they look dark then you know that the printing system is working fine. If they are light as well, then it is possible that being shipped upside down resulted in some dirt getting into the laser scanner. The image original settings are kind of wonky, in that it is backwards to normal assumptions. Darkness refers to the actual orignal you are scanning, so in most cases if you have lighter origjnals then you need to set darkness lower. As well, check whether the image type is set for photo or text. Setting for text will result in darker scans.

Turn the brightness up slightly and turn the contrast on the highest setting. There may also be settings to control wether your projectin on a wall or on a screen. Make sure these settings are correct to your setup.

Picture is very dark on all channels. Settings have not changed. Do I need to replace the bulb?


You may need a drive PCB. This PCB can cause the picture to be too bright, no brightness or picture too dark, intermittantly or permanantly. Do check the bulb though and see if it is foggy looking or dull especially if it has not been changed. Thanks for using Fixya.

Poss. convergence problem with Hitachi 53UDX10B Ultravision


You have convergence problem. Either bad connections on ics, ics are bad or voltages to convergence circuit are missing. There are no bulbs in this set. 3 picture tubes,red,green and blue produce a picture than when alighned(converged) correctly on top of each other gives you a color picture.When not you get the effect you are describing. Frst you can try the magic focus in the menu.

Dark picture on lg dlp tv


Did you use a generic replacement? Many TVs have a dark picture after replacing the original lamp with a generic. The other issue I've encountered are TVs that have been exposed to cigarette smoke will develop a dark, discolored picture over a relatively short time.

Hitachi projection 53" screen color off


Since this is a CRT based projection set, there is no "lamp" involved. Does the picture look like 3-D? If so, the problem is likely to be a convergence problem. There should be 1 or 2 convergence ICs marked STK392-110 inside attached to a heatsink. If you can solder, try resoldering the pins on those ICs. If that fails to resolve the problem, replace them.

Keep us posted.

LCD TV picture screen very dark


I have the same issues with my Westinghouse LCD set. I've found that going into the settings (using the TV remote) I can get it back to a bright picture by selecting 'restore factory settings'. It is aggravating and a pain, but I can correct it.

It only seems to do it on the analog stations, not the digital (HD) ones, so maybe it will go away after the conversion next year.

Hope this works for you.
