    Hi I have a Philips LCD but the picture is very dark nearly impossible to see unless you shine a torch onto the screen. I have heard that they use a bulb so maybe it is this that has gone. Any ideas would be good. Thanks

    Have you been in to the menu and adjusted the contrast and brightness? If this does not work then I would suggest a call to a repair centre or the retailer you got it from. How old is it? What model is it? Might provide a bit more insight to your problem.

    I can't give it to philips as it was sent along with a 17" upgrade by mistake. It's the 15pf8946/12. I have tried putting the contrast and brightness up with no avail.

    My thoughts are this:
    1. Its broken - throw it away
    2. Its broken - take it to a repair shop
    3. Its broken - i can fix it myself

    I hope it's 3. as i can't really afford to get it fixed.

    I have only tried the co-axil and scart connection have not tried the pc input or the s-video or audio/video phono sockets.

    Please help me!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I would imagine you won't find much you can do yourself to repair it. Get it repaired, you don't have to go to philips for a repair. Check the price as it might be cheaper to buy a new unit. I don't know about the inside workings of the set but someone else may be able to advise you about what to look for. Try a search on google or something and you may find a few answers.
