Dark picture problem 42PES0001D/10
I have been extremely happy with my Philips Essence but since a few days the picture in its standard settings becomes extremely dark I would have to put up brightness to 100 in order to see something. For instance I have tried the 123654 trick stated in an earlier message about the same TV model but that doesn't change (the brightness of) the colors. I am now looking at the CSM menus and I cannot read the text of the screen, thats how dark it is.
I have updated the firmware, resetted to factory defaults, took out cables and what not more, but to no avail. Please tell that this a buggy lightsensor or some other setting, because I do not think this is normal for a 2 year old premium model TV.
Any ideas or suggestions are more than welcome. There have been a few messages on the same model in the past days...is this coincidence?
