Sony LCD TV has Dark Picture

My 3yo Sony 60" LCD TV pic has gone way dim, tried to increase brightness with no luck. Time for a new lamp? Do they go dim before they go out? The lamp is original. Thanks in advance. Jim K

Hi there,

the problem is not the lamp.

This model has a set of two backlight lamps, and it is practically impossible that both lamps go faulty at the same time.

When the backlight lap in an LCD TV goes off in this way, the faulty part is always the backlight inverter, that is the high voltage board powering the lamp.

In your case you have to get the TV inverter booard replaced.

    I have esentially the same issue (I think). The screen gets funky and very dark but only on the righthand side. For about a month, it would correct itself in 15min and work fine. Now it stays dark. Question: the set is 2.5 yrs old. Should the lamp be replaced while they're at it?

The LCD screen on my Gateway M-6317 is dim. How

Press and hold the 'FN' key and tap the key that has the picture of a sun and an up arrow (or some other similar picture that dictates brightness - there should be two different keys that affect brightness one to increase and the other to decrease). Once you have the brightness set to your liking quit tapping the 'brightness' key and release the 'fn' key

Picture is dark

Adjust video settings:
  1. Press Wega Gate
  2. Select Settings
  3. Highlight Video
  4. Press + to select
  5. Adjust/increase the brightness.
  6. Press Wega gate to exit.
If picture is still dark, you need to replace the lamp again. Sony recommends that you replace the lamp:
  1. After approximately 8,000 hours of use.
  2. When the screen becomes dark or the color becomes unusual.
  3. When the lamp indicator on the front of the TV flashes.

Dark picture on wega lcd

Yes, if this TV has a bulb it is likely to be the bulb.

I am not familiar with this exact model, but other LCD Projection TV will show dim picture after some time. Expected life of the lamps is about 2yrs. After 2yrs the picture will become dim. After 5yrs I am suprised it is even working.

Dirt doesn't cause this problem unless your are a smoker or have the unit "literally" outside. DO NOT try to clean it or let someone tell you to do it because it will cause more problems than it fixes.

Tv will not turn on

For dark picture I need to ask one question, How long ago you replaced its lamp? one year, two years?

Picture brightness is depends on lamp in LCD rear projection (DLP) TVs and if lamp got weak in generating light, you will see dark picture.

I would recommend to replace lamp and buy Sony original lamp from Sony Accessories Store.

Required lamp part number is as follows..
F93087500 LAMP BLOCK ASSY XL-2400
and price is $200
Good luck.

Whirlpool Side by Side American style Fridge Freezer too hot and too cold! I have model S20D FSS10-A/D Service number 8586 161 15000 Side By side FF - and after replacing many components on the rear board 13 years ago it has been running well. However.... with a new fault I am hoping that the symptoms may allow someone to point me in the right direction. Not having a circuit diagram has been a hindrance. Over last few years the front panel inside in the fridge in my model has been developing a display fault - it started with the LED display winking out briefly about twice a second. The mark/space of time for the 'winking out' changed slowly to 50% on 50% off twice a second to eventually become just flashing on briefly twice a second and finally off all the time. However, the default settings/functioning of the FF has been working fine so didn't need to use the panel. However, can't read any fault codes that might be there I don't think that the buttons are doing anything on the panel. It has 15v supply but I don't know what supply voltage from the rear PCB should be. Then... A few weeks ago the house RCD tripped once and the fridge bulb had blown ********* stain on bulb interior and Relay RL3 was chattering randomly - I took the board out and noticed a fried circuit track where it looped thinly either side of component hole that was unused. I soldered in a bridge over the gap. Restarted the FF. From then the freezer cools to -32c and warms up to -2c and down to -32 etc.. The fridge varies in temp but does go as low as 0c and high as +9c. Alongside this, when the compressor is not running we can heard a ticking noise and identified that the compressor fan was turning slowly about ?100 rpm There's no ice build up, the freezer to fridge air louvres are opening and closing when you switch the FF on, and do seem to open and close at different times. The evapourator fan seems fine as does the compressor fan, the bottom of the fridge is dust free and the rear panels are all on to allow proper cooling of the condensor motor. I pulled the board again, checked all the capacitors I have a slightly different board to many and all the capacitors I had used from one brand have failed again. I took all the caps out and measured them. C6, C16 should have been 0.68uF and were in the order of a few nF C14, 26, 27,28 should have been 0.1uF and were 0,.6nF, 2nF, 10nF and 38nF respectively. All other film and electrolytic capacitors were within tolerance. I replaced all the faulty caps thinking that I had found the display problem because you had told me in the past that C6 and C16 relate to the front panel and the cooling issues and fan issues but NONE had been cured :- I checked the continuity to the front panel of all connectiions and they're fine. Also checked the 2 electrolytics on the front board. So I am at a bit of a loss. I have checked the zener diodes in situ and all have about 6v forward voltage drop I cannot find a replacement board due to different connectors on my unit - so unless I can fix we will have to fork out for a new FF :-
