Our tv screen is dark on certain channels and if the particular show is showing a night shot on every channel.

Try entering the "picture" sub-menu in your settings, then set the choice on "vivid" (or whatever the brightest setting is). If that doesn't work, try attaching the device on another input. Occasionally, if you are using the coaxial output of your device (the screw-on cable), it can give you a dark picture. If you have another output on the device, try it instead.

Has the lamp ever been replaced? As lamps age they get darker screens. First though check to make sure the TV settings aren't accidentally on a dark setting. Go into the menu and see if increasing the brightness helps.Different picture modes like movie, games, vivid have different brightness settings vivid usually the brightest.

Monitor grays too dark

That means that the inverter board is faulty and myst be replaced.

The inverter board is an high voltage board that supplies AC power to backlight system. when inverter is faulty, you will get an extremely dark picture.

Parts must be tested before replacement.

Best settings

Vivid will make the picture look its brightest, press either Status, info or recall on the remote to see what Resolution you are receiving. If 1080i or higher,(720p is higher than 1080i) you should have a very clear and crisp picture.

The pic needs to be brighter. we have the adjustment to the brightest setting

If you take the back off the TV you will see the 3 picture tubes. You can clean the lenses. Also there is a mirror mounted to the back..if you clean these it should help. If the picture is really, really dark, then you probably have an electrical component bad in the TV and will need an expert to repair it.

Very dark picture on TV

Try restoring all factory settings. On your remote, press the reset button twice. If that doesn't correct it, then you'll probably need a repair technician. For more info, consult your owners manual, which is also available at
