Question about JVC LT-32WX84 32 in. HDTV-Ready LCD Television

1 Answer

Living over seas and using the wrong outlet

I hate to think it but I suspect that there is no soultion to my problem. Using an adaptor we plugged our TV into the 220 outlet next to the cable. Imediatly it began to smoke white sweet smellling smoke. We unplugged it and opened all the windows. When we came back later with a step down transformer we got picture and sound and things seemed ok. However after a few minuets a weird sound could be heard like a rattle snake and we did notice the sweet smell was back though very faint and without the smoke. We turned the TV off agian and are hoping for a solution to appear >< We do know from having our microwave previously plugged into the step down transformer that it is a little lower power output than 120 but without proper equipment were not sure exactly what the output is. Please, let us know if there is any hope for our TV. Thank you, Lost in Korea

SOURCE: Progressive power up problem

Yeppers. Sounds like the standby power supply has a bad capacitor in it and the regulator Ic is defective. These parts should only be replaced by quilified technician as there is very high voltage inside these sets. Good Luck

SOURCE: TV wont power on, clicking noise and flashing standby led

Sounds pretty bad to me, I had a computer monitor that did a similar thing when plugged in after blowing, it's not a good thing. I didn't even bother to mess with it. You may have to replace the whole power board or at least have a whole handful of pieces to re-solder. It most likely isn't worth it unless your other tv's are under 30" and you don't have a lot of money ;)

Your TV needs to be calibrated. Rear projection TVs are very sensitive to movement. They have 3 color canons that need to be precisely aligned so that the colors overlay each other. They are like three projectors all aimed at the same screen.

If you were to enter the User Menu on the TV, you should find an alignment/calibration choice that will re-align the colors using some on-screen help.

If you are not able to resolve the situation on your own, a certified ISF Calibrationist should be called.

And, since you've bought this TV used, it should be cleaned by a professional (the canons, lenses, etc.)

My Lenovo s10 power adaptor (Input 1.7A, Output 20V 2A) was working just now together with the battery. After i didn't used the laptop for an hour and returned to switch it on, the power adaptor isn't...


You said laptop is working fine if just using the battery,that means that there is nothing wrong with the battery itself. Can yu please try to connect the laptop directly to the power outlet without using the battery just for the mean time,remove the battery and connect the AC adapter directly to the power outlet then power on the laptop,if nothing happens,that means that there is something wrong with the AC adapter itself or the power port on the laptop.
Hope this will help...

The printer is plugged in but does not turn on. The green light on the AC adaptor is on. I have tried a friend's AC adaptor and it did not work either.

I think it would be wrong to suspect a problem with the adapter wire if the same problem occurs with two adapters. Do both adapters work with your friends printer? If so one would suspect that the plug port on your printer is defective.

This is the advice from the manual:

Power button is not lit

1 Disconnect the power supply cord from the wall outlet, and then from the printer.

2 Plug the cord all the way into the power supply port on the printer. make sure it is well seated

3 Plug the cord into an electrical outlet that other electrical devices have been using.

4 If the Power button light is not on, press Power.

If this does not correct the problem and it is a new purchase I would consider returning it to the vendor. Otherwise you may need to have a technician Tto investigate and confirn that power is reaching the printerre and the problem lis elesewhere with a switch or posisbly you need to replace the power connector port on the printer.

Gets dark wave in three waves,

The first thing I would suspect is a noisy AC supply. Try using a ground adaptor. Sounds technical, but if you every went to Grandpa's he may have been using a few and you just didn't know what they were. They are commonly used to adapt a 3 prong electrical plug to a 2 prong AC outlet. If your TV does have a 3 prong AC cord, give this a try before you do anything. It's a cheap solution and often works like a charm.

My battery died, I plugged in the charger and the battery light flashes and then shuts off

Your battery might be completely drained. Remove your battery and and plug your laptop directly to the power outlet using just your laptop's AC Adaptor. If should now work with the battery being bypassed.

If it won't work in this way (connecting to AC Power with the battery removed), there must be something wrong with your laptop's board.

Nintendo DS Will Not Charge

Try if the battery is charged right, when batter is fully charged disconnect from AC adapter. Hold the power button for 5 seconds. If it does not work that means that you need a replacement battery for the Nintendo DS. When you receive the replacement batter, follow the steps again.

Melting power adaptor

Is the power adaptor made for the country you are living in? It's possible the plug you are plugging it into has a higher current than the plug was certified for. Have you tried plugging the laptop in in another location (like, in a different building)? You may just need to replace the adaptor, how old is it?

My son plugged in your AC adaptor Model AD 126 when we got Verizon DSL and he put the modem in my room. Cords from that modem go to my computer and to 2 other computers elsewhere in the house. The adaptor...

Too much things is connected thru that wall. The outlet is being use to pull more current that its normal use or that it can handle hence running different ports hot which will cause problems in the near. Somthing will get too much current & blow up !

Recommend that you chose a outlet for the adapter.
