Hi guy's, just got back from the north and set up my living room with some cash I had saved.
I found a used TV on Kijjiji. A toshiba regza whatever LED flat thing. So I threw out my old RCA projection behemouth. This morning, I woke up and turned it on, the picture is quite low in brightness. So I went to menu options, threw contrast and brightness to 100%, no change.
I then did some google stuff, thought maybe it is a energy saving thing, I don't think this tv has this option.
Anyway, I thought, I think, I just spent 400$ for a very dim TV.
I thought maybe the HDMI cable was bad, So I swapped it with a known good monster cable and still same.
So, since I like repeating myself often, I think I bought a faulty used unit, I am thinking a backlight issue but don't know how to test that.
Any advice would be very appreciated.
BTW, when coming back from the north, you have to get used to traffic.
Do you know if this TV has one (or a few) back-light, or does it have individual LEDs for each pixel? If it is "over-all" back-lighting, then you may have a chance to check/repair that. What specific model number is this beast?
