The picture is too dark.
Is there a "brightness" adjustment or is the set just getting old?
The only possibilities I see are on the back (Tech adjustments) "Screen" & "Focus".
What does "Screen" do?

If your TV seems to be darker than you think it should be, it is possible that the problem is with the light sensor. The light sensor will automatically adjust the picture brightness based on the ambient light that is in the room, (i.e. if the room is bright the picture will also be bright, if it is dark the picture will also be dark).
To turn this feature off go to Settings > General Setup > Light Sensor.

You don't say anything about the brand, but most have a menu or setup button on the remote (and TV) which give an on-screen display of functions available. You should see one for picture adjustments. Perhaps the projection bulb is getting old and dim. This is another possibility.
*The brightness control setting determines how bright your picture will be.
*The contrast control sets the gain of the video circuit. This determines the difference between dark and light scenes. Low contrast settings make the picture "hazy". High contrast settings make the picture more distinction between dark and light scenes.
*The sharpness control determine the frequency
response of the video circiut. High sharpness settings give better resolution but also shows
more noise in your picture. Lower sharpness settings smoothe out the picture removing noise but also fine detail. It needs to be set for the best all around picture.
*Picture Enhancement is pre-set adjustments which give you
different picture qualities. You just select the one you like.
I don't have the remote or the owner's manual.
Is there a way of doing functions w/the front controls on the unit?
If not, I guess I need to track down a remote.
