Hi and welcome to JustAnswer,Thank you for the question and your patience. Should you still need assistance for information purposes only...Initially, is this since new? ...or only a recent issue

Still, there is no single prescribed settings for these picture attributes as these are subjective; i.e. dependent on the user preference hence adjustable. There is however a "Picture Reset" that allows these settings to bo back to factory defaults from where thence the owner/user can change.However, the described symptom of "...picture is dark but gradually come on..." almost always point to an internal hardware issue or more particularly, possible suspects are:• CCD lamps (least likely);• inverter (likely);• low or missing or slow to buildup voltage / power supply issue (most likely).All of the above would require that the unit be opened up for visual inspection, voltage/continuity/resistance checks, confirm faults and effect repairs.I realize that the above information may perhaps be not what was expected. Unfortunately, there is no quick-n-easy fix and neither is there a workaround; sorry for having to be the bearer of bad news.Are you then considering a DIY (do-it-yourself) repair approach? If yes, you may need access to and familiarity with the use of a multimeter and even perhaps a soldering iron.

Hi again,
Any update(s)?
As posted above, a most likely internal hardware issue. If considering a DIY, then carefully check the brightness level of the CCF lamps/backlights.
Please post back results / observations of the above once tried.
