If an image appears too dark or washed out, Equalize is the sledgehammer way to pound it into a usable state. The command attempts to redistribute pixels so that they are equally balanced across the entire range of brightness values. You can tell Photoshop to look at the entire image when equalizing, or sample a smaller area that will drive the overall adjustment. The command will take the lightest area and map it to pure white (255) and the darkest area to pure black (0). Since the equalize command uses the full 0-255 range, you will need to adjust levels to keep the image broadcast safe.
