My parents gave me a Samsung LN-R409D. Im not sure if its and LCD or whatever but when i turn it on the picture is really dark and you cant see any fine details. Just the outline of everything and some little details but mostly dark. The menu looks fine but the tvs picture is not. I reset the picture settings but it did not help any. I was hoping someone could tell me what may be causing this so i can decide whether it is worth getting it repaired or something simple i can do myself. Thanks!
