A6500 MAKES EVERYTHING DARK...HELP ME!!!

I have a6500. Now i do reviews on YouTube in my room. My room is properly lighted,i have 1 ring light for the front and 2 side lights for the green screen. While recording videos, everything looks dark on the monitor. We tried to  Brighten the area and the video still comes out darker.  I don't know if its a glitch or the settings are messed up but ive never had a issue  with this camera. Its like the whole video is not bright at all despite our changes.

Well, because he is shooting video his shutter speed is fixed at 1/50th of a second  with 24fps setup.

Aperture is as stated F4.

Whats your ISO?  On auto? Or fixed? and even more importend when it is on auto please check your range, should start at 100 to 6400(or (higher)

btw u know the screen dims at 4k?
