My Toshiba tv (19DV501B - Digital series) has suddenly developed

This answer was rated:

My Toshiba tv (19DV501B - Digital series) has suddenly developed a picture problem. The picture has gone quite dark and dull. I have tried adjusting the picture settings using the remote and I've retuned but it's not making any real difference. I've had the tv for just over 4 years.
Can you help/advise?

The sets own remote control broke some time ago - I use a universal remote now. But yes, everything is dull - text boxes for services on the remote and all the digital radio displays.
I am going to be out now for a few hours. Hope to hear more from you later.
Its either a bad t-con board or a bad LCD panel, the panel is not an option to replace in any size set, for a set of this size repairs are not an option either to do your self or for a engineer to do its a much better option just to replace it because these sets come in very cheaply now new.
