no change

Its probably not as prominent using the PS3 the problem is bad back-lights I am afraid these will need replacing thing is its a laborious job and costly.....

is it something i can repair?

They can go dimmer as well as failing altogether, and no its something you can't do yourself I do not fit myself so I did try and do the work but damaged the LCD panel an easy thing to do,you could try though but you wil need the correct backlights www.shopjimmy.com may stock these however I would not advise you to do this the set has to be stripped down

Ask Your Own TV Question

There are many videos on youtube about backlight replacement to give you an idea
