    I have a new Sony DVD player that has done this since the first time
    it was played. Starts with normal brightness, then slowly goes darker
    (not black), then back to normal, then bright, and so on. Only does
    this when playing a DVD (not when displaying menu items). This was a
    gift from my company, that would be easier to repair or trash than
    return. Anyone have an idea of what may be causing this and where to
    start looking for repair? I searched this group and found nothing on
    this particular model. Thankyou as always group.

    You don't by any chance have it hooked up through a VCR or RF modulator,
    do you? The Macrovision copy protection scheme will cause this exact
    effect unless the DVD is plugged directly into line inputs on the TV.

    Wild guess: You have your DVD player connected to a VCR which is then
    connected to the TV. Right? If so, then no repair is necessary...you
    are seeing an artifact of "MACROVISION" an anti-piracy feature of
    virtually all DVDs and many VHS tapes. Google MACROVISION for the
    remedy.
