I have a 37" Sylvania LD370SC8-S LCD TV. The colors are very bright. A black bar in my color bar pattern is light grey. The picture adjustments help a little but they cannot bring the over-brightness to a reasonable level. The colors look like pastels. I think the backlight inverter might be bad because I got a nasty shock when my knuckle touched a fairly large heat sink that cools a 3-leg device on that board. I don't think a heat sink should be energized. The video and audio are good except for the brightness. I am looking at a replacement board for about $50+shipping. Can someone let me know if they think the backlight inverter can cause black to look grey and other colors to look pastel? Thanks for any ideas
