My picture is dark even with backlight setting at maximum what is wrong?
Hello, my name is*****'ll be happy to assist you. I need additional info of TV symptoms to troubleshoot the problem. This is not an answer so do not rate it.- Can you please get me the model number written on back of TV in question?Thanks.
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

Samsung LE40A556

OK, does TV menu screen also come up darker when push menu button on TV or its remote?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

It is reasonably clear compared to the picture quality

OK, please unplug TV power cord from wall socket for 10 minutes to reset, replug back in, turn TV on and check if screen is bright?If problem still persist then it seems backlight inverter section is failing which is part of power supply board so entire power board will need to be replaced which will help to resolve the issue. Please get the part number off of label pasted on power supply board in TV to search/ google to get the price and stock info to order it if you wish to swap it in TV by yourself, part number would be like BN44-00197B or some thing similar.I trust my input will help you out.
