It sounds like your lamp is about to die out,this tv lamps are good for 6000-8000 life hours which is a average time of 2-4 years old and with time the picture starts to get darker and darker until one day black screen. Try Encompass .com ; shopjimmy.com

I changed the bulb on my Zenith Z44SZ80 and the TV picture is really dark and not bright like it used to be. The old bulb was 100w and the new one is 120w. I tried adjusting the brightness and contrast...


curthansen,

You should revisit the lamp by removing it and checking for any obstruction in the light path. When satistied that nothing is blocking the light path and if you still have low light levels I would contact the vendor and try to exchange your lamp for a new one. If the unit is still dim after installing a new, 2nd lamp, I would replace the ballast board assembly. I have a tip at http://www.fixya.com/support/r4977572-when_change_ballast_in_dlp_tv which explains the problem, how to fix it and where to get the parts at the best price.

Thanks for using FixYa and for the great rating. Please consider a testimonial. Thank You.

How to reset the DLP TV Lamp Counter


Press and HOLD the ENTER (or OK) button on the TV
Press and HOLD the MUTE button on the REMOTE
(hold both until the LAMP LIFE HOURS appears on the screen)
Let go of the REMOTE button first, then release the button on the TV
We suggest writing your lamp hours on a peice of masking tape and taping it to the back the TV for future reference.
To reset the lamp counter, press SELECT (or the button in the middle of the direction arrove buttons). Hit SELECT a second time to confirm clearing the lamp counter For certain models, you might have to tweak these steps slightly…offer your inputs!

Mitsubishi WD-52631 shadows and blurs in dark lit movies


If you are getting the same problem with both TV monitors it could then be assumed it's an input problem to the TV monitor. If you are using a digital output from your receiver it could be the cabling. If you are using an analog output from your receiver it is probably coming from the receiver.
Digital video processing does have issues with darker scenes.
Can you try another video source seperate from the receiver like a DVD or better yet an analog VHS, if you still have one. Good luck and let me know.

Zenith 44" LCD TV


The yellow spot is due to the BLUE LCD and/or lens assy cracked, reason, to much HEAT! The blue is the darkest color and hold the most heat, so it goes first, always! In some cases it’s only the lens, however most of the time LCD is damage to. Parts are available, however install and alignment is timely. Quick fix is the complete light engine, which for model# E44W46LCD is part# 3141VSN916C, which customer cost is $1,449.27, wholesale for about $1,065.21. Rebuilt, if you can find it around 850.00 to 950.00. However the rebuilt does not always look as good as factory. My advice, TRASH set. This part will fail again in about 3 to 4 years, unless you watch a lot of white video. Remember, on a black or dark picture, all three LCD are blocking 100% of the light, causing extreme heat within the light engine. It’s a bad design.

Screen Brightness


Your ballast may not be up to 100% of its rated capabilities, thats often the cause when the brightness level gets to unwatchable levels. You may need to troubleshoot the ballast voltages a defective ballast can usually cause a lamp to loose about 60 % of its brightness levels. The other possibility could be the DLP mirrors need polishing but that is something better left to a repair shop as the DLP mirrors are sensitive

Picture seems to be alot darker than before. toshiba 62hm95


I just replaced a lamp in a Sony LCD projection that was just over a year old and it was bad. It was a VERY dim picture. You have a DLP but, in either case a dim or dark picture is almost always caused by the lamp.
