Ok, I'm pretty stressed out right now because I'm a little worried about my tv. I presently have a hitachi 57" widescreen running in the living room....went in there where my girlfriend is watching tv and the picture seemed darker?? I checked the contrast/brightness controls and they seem to be in the same spot i set them too after running the dvd essentials program. The comcast onscreen menus are different colored now too, like they are darker too. The set is only about a year old and I think something is messed up in there. The same thing happened to a little 27" set I had before the hitachi. It all of a sudden got darker and then I had to turn up the brightness to compensate. Could this be a problem with the line coming in doing damage to the set? I really hope something isn't wrong with the tv, but I really don't know what to do...Guess I'll be calling up circuit city tomorrow to have them come out and look at it or something. Any info anyone can provide or knowledge of similar problems would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.
