The picture seems to be getting darker. Its not as bright and sharp as it used to be. Its about 9 years old but has not been used very much. Might it need a new bulb or something? 57HX81 Proj TV Color...


simple: remove back cover and locate the three large black lens you will see top and dead center, clean them with either a lens cloth or a paper towel with glass cleaner----they are the light source for your picture and should be cleaned once a year---as they get dusty the picture gets darker and duller looking.\\

Picture getting darker over the years


It could be your Light Engine. However, I would first check a few things:

1. Make sure your Low Power/Lamp settings are adjusted so that they meet your brightness needs.

2. Make sure you used a Mitsubishi original lamp, as generics get chewed through fast and hard.

3. Try another lamp; sometimes you can get a bad one in the bunch.

All those things don't work, consider a Light Engine ($400 + for parts; $300+ for labor)

Darker picture


Clean the lenes inside of the TV and the mirror and screen (a little dust build up on these three things adds up quick!) also if you smoke that can build up too! these tvs have too be cleaned inside

I have a 10 to 12 year old Zenith SY2772 tv. The picture is getting gradually darker and darker, so that it is very hard to see what is going on in scenes that are dark to begin with. I assume that it is...


Yes it could be other things, but to be honest, I wouldn't waste time or money on a set that old. If the picture was perfect and something else went bad, perhaps a small investment would be worth it, but with your description, I'd pass.

Time for a new set.

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.
