Hello everyone. I had this problem a few months ago. The problem is the backlight driver failing. The chip can be replaced but you would need a surface mount rework station to do this. There is a member who has done a mod to upgrade the brightness. You can find him in one of the other threads and he will email you detailed pictures of the mod. Philips charges to much to fix these units. You can find refurbished units on the net for $169.95. This is what I had to do. Hopefully the new Pronto will not have all of the issues we have all had to suffer through with the 3000.
