1 Answer

Dim screen The dvd player plays dvd as soon as turned on. The screen is extremely dim and must be tilted to even be sure a picture is there. All sound plays properly, everthing works fine, you just can't see the images.

This could either be an inverter issue, or a backlight issue. Lamp replacement varies from very easy, seconds, to impossible without returning the entire panel to a service depot. There are some other possibilities (cables, motherboard problems controlling the backlight) but they are RARE. Inverters are relatively cheap (they are not "cheap", but they are still 80% less than a new LCD panel and 75% less than replacement backlight IF you could get it replaced). A new inverter is likely to be in the $50-$75 range. Any difference when working with batteries as opposed to AC? If so then it could be related to a power saving setting. But if your screen is completely dark, only visible with a light flashed at the screen, then that's not it. Good luck post a comment for the result

New Philips Televion dim and flickers

You should return the player because if it is dim and flickering than there is a miss connection in the play. It could also be that your tv is not compatable with that player.

Player has sound of the movie but the screen is just white no picture

There is a small button on top when the screen closes it turns off the display. While the movie is playing press the small button with a small pointing object and see if the display shows something on the screen for a few second and then off (you can sometime see the movie playing but very dim). then there is a problem with the switch not switching the display back to normal. Hope this helps...

Toshiba 22LV505 TV-DVD:

Check the DC filter caps in the power supply first. Check the 24vdc (or 18vdc for this 22" model) to see if it goes away when the screen goes black.
There are main AC fuse, backlight inverter fuses, T-CON fuses.

Dim Mode

Make sure the orange wire with white stripe is connected to your dash illumination/parking lamp circuit. There should be a tag on it that says 'ILLUM' (unless the installer clipped it). That should dim the display whenever your lights are on.

If that doesn't do it enough I think your going to have to dial down the brighness - and that will do it for all functions.

Audiovox D1812 disc loads & plays but VERY dim screen

Sounds like the backlight isn't working, could be the flourescent tube or the inverter that powers it. At least those are the likely suspects in other LCD monitors that have similar problems.
