Sounds like text is staying on screen because you have brightness turned up too much

the reason it is dark is probably because backlight is bad - backlight is flourescent bulb and if you have ever seen a flourescent bulb you know how it gets dark from edges almost as soon as you start using it

you might be able to replace bulb yourself if you are handy or bring in for service

there is a chance (possibly a good chance) that the power supply for the backlight is bad also - you might want to consider if a repair is worth it considering how cheap they sell these things now

let me know if i could be of more help

good luck!

    I was advised that the tcon board could be the problem, so i sourced one off the web for £40.
    It took me about 10 mins to change it and now the tv is like new.
    hope this is of help to someone else instead of having to pay extortionate repair prices.

In settings, check display setting for brightness. See if the auto brightness is selected. If so de-select and try. Another thing to check is the battery saving mode !

Mottled background


Sounds like you may need a new lamp according to my Samsung DLP manual for a HLR4667W.

"Why do I need to replace the lamp?
The lamp used in a DLP TV has a limited lifespan. For the best screen quality it needs to be
replaced periodically. After replacing the lamp, the screen quality will be bright and clear as new."

Vizio lcd flatpanel tv with dark background


If half screen is affected it will be either a board (LCD and Plasma have different names) but in those one board drives each side of the screen unit--worst case is the display panel itself which is fatal from a cost point of view.

I have a 19 inch samsung monitor. suddenly it went dark. Can it be repaired?


Hello,
Please be more specific about your problem:
1. Is it black or just darker by lower brightness? 2. Is the power led turned on and what color is it showing?

Dark, horizontal lines after text and dark images.


This implies that your monitor had gone bad. you need to take it to a computer repair shop.

Closed caption text is pale white now instead of bright green


Theres no color option on this set as far as the manual says. It sounds like the Video driver comming out of the microprocessor is bad, so the micro will need to be replace. This is not a user replaceable part so please seek a pro to repair this for you. Sorry i couldnt assist you more with this. Good Luck

Strange silhouetting and a vertical strip


If A vertical strip appears on the screen when recording a dark background or the subject is blooming or silhouetting, you need to adjust the BLC. * The contrast between the subject and the background is too great for the camcorder to operate normally. * Make the background brighter to reduce the contrast or use the BLC function while you are recording in a brighter environment. BLC (Back light Compensation) * BLC works in CAMERA/M.REC mode.B * Back lighting exists when the subject is darker than the background: 1. The subject is in front of a window. 2. The person to be recorded is wearing white or shiny clothes and is placed against a bright background; the person?s face is too dark to distinguish his/her features. 3. The subject is outdoors and the background is overcast. 4. The light sources are too bright. 5. The subject is against a snowy background. 1. Set the power switch to CAMERA mode. 2. Press the BLC button. Normal - BLC - Normal BLC enhances the subject. Notes: * When NITE PIX to set to ON, the BLC function does not work. * The BLC function will not operate in EASY mode.
