Can you please try to get to the back of the tv, as it is necessary to get the model number for us to discuss specific details about the tv .

Where on the back will I find the model no?

It is on a sticker on the back, usually near the power cord

most wall mounts will tip or tilt out enough to make connections and see that info, or stick your phone back there to snap a picture of the tag

Model : UN50ku6300f
Type no. 50ku6300

Great, thank you for checking.

What you are experiencing is an issue of the eco sensor adjusting to the room brightness, but over correcting.

Press the Home button then go to the Settings (gear) menu, then System, then Eco Solution, and set that to OFF.

Let me know if that works for you.

Thanks,

Nathan

Should eco sensor be on or off ?

It should be off, that is what I was wanting you to set to off.

How do I get it set on off ? It seem to keep coming back to on after the tv picture come on and I go back to check the setting

Try setting the energy saving mode to the disabled setting also, then change the sensor to disabled

When energy saving mode is on off and low is checked brightness is fine but picture slowing darken again. How do I set it so it stays
When you go back in has it reset itself to be on again?
Go into the picture setting and put the picture mode to movie or custom and try again
