Roku express dimming

My roku express keeps dimming. I checked online and I saw that you have to change brightness under tv picture in settings but roku express does not have this feature. Is there any other way to make it brighter?

Re: Roku express dimming

Roku players don't have any display settings other than resolution and for 4K devices colorspace settings. Brightness settings are only available on the display you're using. Roku TVs would also have such settings of course. 

I don't know exactly what you mean by screen dimming. The next time it dims, change your input to another device, or the TV tuner, and see if it is still dim. It's always possible your display (TV) is failing.

Re: Roku express dimming

Sounds like macrovision, are trying to pass the  analog out through recorder and then on to the tv?

Roku 4K+ dimming and brightening on it's own

I am having the same issue with the Express 4K and if I switch back to the other input it's fine.

Re: Roku 4K+ dimming and brightening on it's own

Hey @Theresa64524

We're here to help!

For us to isolate the cause of the problem, have you tried using a different HDMI cable? How about connecting your Roku Express 4K to a different TV? We would recommend trying both then let us know if that resolves the issue you're experiencing.

Please keep us posted.

All the best,
Kariza
