The Convergence IC's have went out. This is normal for this TV after about 5 years or so. You will need 2 sanyo STK392-150 IC chips, and about 6 resistors to fix. The cost is about 50 US dollars if you do it yourself. If you are not good at soldering, don't try it. However if you are, and can read an ohmeter it will be no problem
daveT29 - I had my brightness cranked, too. The picture went dark and off-color after moving the TV from one corner of the living room to another.
After waiting for the TV repairman for about 4 weeks, I "fixed" it myself. Take the front panel off (4 screws, then a black panel) and blow out all the dust. I was afraid to use a swiffer duster because of the static electricity, so i just used with my mouth blowing powers.
