Sony Grand Vega 61" HDTV LCD screen going very dim over the past few days...will fade to black with green "on" light blinking, then resets itself to on again, but display still very dim. This TV was purchased from Best Buy in 2005 My warranty expires next June. Is there some adjustment I am missing? Already tried brightness control with little or no response.
Thanks,
Ed

Why is the picture dark Magnovox FP4610W104?


If the picture is dim, the backlight is starting to fail. If the screen is black and you cannot see any picture, the backlight has failed completely.

Dim/dark Picture


The model indicated here is rear projection that uses three picture tubes.

If rear cover is removed--can be done by removing entire front screen but there are hazards like damaging the screen---with rear cover removed clean the lens in the three round cyclinders which point up and are hard to miss===

They are the light source for the picture---there is if you look up inside and to the rear a mirror but unless grimy it rarely needs cleaning.

clean the lens with a lens cloth or even a paper towel with glass cleaner sprayed on the towel.

If it is a tubed projector, it could be tired tubes. The EHT unit may be faulty. If it is a DLP or LCD then it could be a failing lamp. Job to tell with no information, sorry.

On my 50 inch DLP, there is only about three inches of clear and bright resoulution on the right siade of the screen. The rest is showing the picture dim. I can see the picture but is is dark and dim.


You have some bad capacitors in your set. If you are knowledgeable on electronis components and how they react in a circuit you can check them and replace them yourself. If not have a service tech do the job for you. However if you are electronic savvy then check all the caps in the high voltage section of your set and replace all weak or leaky caps this will fix your problem

How to adjust brightness


You don't say anything about the brand, but most have a menu or setup button on the remote (and TV) which give an on-screen display of functions available. You should see one for picture adjustments. Perhaps the projection bulb is getting old and dim. This is another possibility.

Dark picture on wega lcd


Yes, if this TV has a bulb it is likely to be the bulb.

I am not familiar with this exact model, but other LCD Projection TV will show dim picture after some time. Expected life of the lamps is about 2yrs. After 2yrs the picture will become dim. After 5yrs I am suprised it is even working.

Dirt doesn't cause this problem unless your are a smoker or have the unit "literally" outside. DO NOT try to clean it or let someone tell you to do it because it will cause more problems than it fixes.

One of the most common faults with the phillips rear projections is the coolant in the tubes. That can and will make the picture very dim and can cause the brightness and focus controls not to have much affect over it. Please respond to this same post with your model number and I will check to see if their are any other items that could cause that symptom.

Mits 46805 - Replaced IC's now picture is dim!


Good Day, Nickb2b;

The IC's you installed will not cause a dark/dim picture......but I would like you to check two things:

1. Make sure you put all cables that you may have unplugged into their proper positions, the cables are marked with numbers, ensure all cables are properly seated,

2. Look for fluid on the PCB's.

Good Luck, big IRISH.
