I have an older Panasonic that I just got to game on. Its a Panasonic model PV-2023-PD, the issue that Im having is that the screen is very dark. I have tried to find some sort of buttons that may be placed on the t.v. as where you can adjust the color or screen settings, and haven't found anything of the nature. So is there a way that I can repair this t.v. myself?

Inside the set there is a flyback transformer (follow the thick red wire from bell of picture tube). On this flyback there will be two controls, focus(f) and screen(s). If you want to be able to put the control back to very close to exact spot you started, take a marker and mark its position. With set on observe screen of CRT and SLOWLY rotate control clockwise. Picture should become brighter. If control is turned too high or too fast the TV may shut down or retrace lines will appear on the screen. Correct point is just a little below point where retrace first became visible. Smile
