I was playing the game psychonauts, on my CRT TV which I basically couldn't see at all, since the game was so dark. I tried turning up the brightness but that didn't help at all. But some other games have issues too, and some DVD's also look very bad when played on the CRT TV, they look darker on HDTV but the darkness isn't nearly as bad as it is on the CRT. Games played on the PS2 CRT combo in general just look darker and crappier than my other consoles but I mention psychonauts which is a glaring example.
Basically what I am asking is there any way I can reduce this problem or fix it?

I unhooked the back of his GC (the AV out or whatever it's called). Since we'd already unplugged the av cables from the tv, I think. It's been years ago, like 2002 or 2003.

The PS2 was always darker than the original Xbox and Gamecube, I'm guessing to hide graphical flaws? I always have to turn the brightness up on my TV when I hook the PS2 up. Battlefront II is nearly unplayable on dark maps if I don't.
