This could be a few different things:
1- I would check the G2 voltage coming from the HV Transformer, if low, transformer is bad.
2- It could be your picture tube (CRT)
3- Find someone who gives free estimates ( good luck on that one)
4- If it is your transformer you might spend $200.00 for the repair, that's up to you of coarse.

Kdl 52v5100 gets dark

Try whether you have the same problem when using a DVD player. Go to settings of menu, select picture settings, try adjusting the backlight level/brightness/contrast/sharpness/color etc. to your liking. Check whether you get the same problem if you use the same input on another TV.

Trying to connect my inspiron 15 to my toshiba 32af44 and i can't get a picture on my tv. I have bought a pig tail that goes from VGA(the lap top side) to s-video/audio-video cables(tv side) but still...

> I have bought a pig tail that goes from VGA(the lap top side) to s-video/audio-video cables(tv side)
A simple pigtail won't convert VGA to S-video. The VGA output consists of separate RGB lines and horizontal and vertical synchronization lines.
If you have an adapter that really converts VGA (this output has no audio path) to S-Video and audio lines, then you probably just need to re-select the input through the TV's menu system.

Picture is dark

There is a high voltage transformer(flyback) inside of this set that has two controls on it. One is for focus and the other is for screen control(brightness). You may want to try adjusting the screen control clockwise to see if that will help. The transformer is large, either black or gray, and has a thick red wire going from the top of the picture tube to it. It should be located close to the back of the set.I would try this first before I took it to the shop. Good luck!

Good day.
Your units problem could be traced down to the loose contacts in your chroma and crt circuit sections. Have these sections resoldered. This should resolve your problem.

response is highly appreciated.

Try # 2... Green Fog

The green gun in your picture tube is set a little too high. If you are experienced in removing the back cover of TV's,etc., you may try to find the drive and/or bias controls either on the circuit board that plugs on to the neck of the picture tube or mounted on the main circuit board of your TV. These controls are usually labeled. If you can find them, locate the green bias or drive control and back it down a little while watching the picture through a mirror. A slight adjustment may correct your problem.tJIS IS CALLED GRAY SCALE ADJUSTMENT. BE CAREFUL THERE ARE SOME HIGH VOLTAGE CIRCUITS NEARBY. WORK WITH ONE HAND AND USE AN INSULATED TOOL TO MAKE ADJUSTMENTS I hope this may help you.AGAIN BE CAREFUL!! Stargazer

Toshiba 35A44 - Dark picture on all channels and DVD's

for this brightness problem actually came out from flyback transformer...so, before you spend and waste your money, try to adjust at back of your tv first. But if you aren't an expert, better ask technician to do because that transformer supply a very high voltage....there's two adjustment point at flyback transformer, one point for focus and the other one for brightness! try first...

Picture too dark

You didn't say if you are receiving an off air picture or cable or satellite. The reason the commercials look good is because the local station (or source) transmits them "in the clear", that is, without any enhancements to the video signal. Network programing or local newscasts are sent through a device which inserts a reference signal in what's called the "vertical interval". You may have seen this as a series of flashing dots or pulses at the very top of the picture. There's a lot of information packed into the VITS (Vertcal Interval Test Signal). One of the lines contains a reference pulse for video which is set at a certain level. Your TV sees that level and automatically adjusts its circuitry accordingly. What I suspect is that your set is out of calibration and is pushing down the video signal because it is not "seeing" the level properly. A video alignment should correct this and can be done by a good repair facility. Hope this helps.
