I recently purchased this tv through Circuit City because of the really low price I could get it for. I had read good, but limited, reviews on it as well as the numerous positive reviews for the 37" model. I think the picture quality on it is excellent, but I am having a hard time getting used to the "Automatic Backlight Adjustment" or whatever it is called.


From reading other posts, it's apparent that this can not be disabled. I really don't want to exchange this tv as it's right in my price point, and I'd rather have an LCD versus a plasma due to the glare on most plasma screens (I have a rather large picture window in my room). Has anyone found a workaround for this annoying "feature" or otherwise found a way to live with it? I'm not sure if I will ever get used to the tv doing this. My wife, who usually thinks I'm too particular when it comes to stuff like this, notices it as well so I know it's more than just my anal retentiveness at work here.

Hmmm, can't turn it off, huh. Maybe if you can find the little window the light sensor is under and put a piece of black tape over it.


I had that feature on my Sharp but they allow it to be turned off. I found it annoying.

There is probably an adjustment in the service menu. I accessed mine by holding down the menu button on the TV, and then holding down the menu button on the remote. On mine I get one menu when I start with the TV button, and another when I start with the remote menu button.

Disclaimer: Anything you do in the service menu is your responsibility. I made no changes, just checked it out.
