I will need the model number found on the back of the set?

If you press the menu button of the sets own remote control during the fault condition is the menu dark too please?

Model number : 42PF9966/37
Yes, even if I hit menu on the TV's remote control, the screen keeps getting dark. If I change the TV channel, and then change it back, it returns to 'normal' view momentarily before switching back.

No I am just referring to the menu itself NOT what it does so if you press the menu button of the sets own remote control during the fault is the menu dark too?or is it nice and bright and normal?


Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Ok, the menu is also dark (affected)

Also, I don't know if this is relevant, but the TV was working just fine until 2 weeks back, when we received our Roku 3. I feel it wasn't long after we hooked up the Roku 3 (with the wifi remote/headset) that the screen issue started. Would you benefit from a screenshot to diagnose this better?

Is this something that can be corrected?

Hi Anthony, I recognize it might take you sometime to review problems, but can you confirm you are actively looking at this, and if yes, what can be done to correct this problem? If I dont hear from you, I am going to have to assume, no one is looking at this, and close my account.
