JVC TV-13143 13 in. TV/VCR

We had a very bad thunder/lightning storm here a year ago during the night and in the morning, my 2-year-old TV would not turn on. Have checked around and was told it may just be a fuse but don't know how to check or change and do not want to mess around with high voltage. Can anyone help?

Its could be a fuse but highly unlikly. A surge will usually blow out the power supply, like short out the rectifiers,or the standby power supply. Its best to let a trained servicer look at the set. Good Luck

My neighbor has acquired a jvc tv/vcr combo w/ original remote. when she wanted to program it for cable it only seemed to do ch. 33 - 79 channel 2-32 did not show up. We also could not figure out after...

Your cable company has probably started distributing 2-32 as digital channels. The JVC only has analog NTSC capability. You can acquire an inexpensive digital tuner for around $40 to solve the problem.

Sets such as this still have power applied to stand-by circuits whenever it is plugged in. Try unplugging it for 5 min or so and then if normal operation does not return, ask around for a competent repair shop. With lightning or surges it can be either something "simple" to someone experienced (about $50 maybe) or well exceeding replacement cost. A power strip with surge protection is a good idea in the future, unplugging everything is better but not always practical.

it is possible to fix it. There may be some burnt fuses and a couple of resistors. But it can be fixed in my opinion.

Color messed up on tv since lightning strike

your tv may have ben magnetized by the lightning strike.
tv's have an automatic degaussing circuit that demagnetizes
the pix tube when the set is turned on. this degaussing circuit
may not be working or magnetism may have been too strong for
the internal degaussing to correct.
contact local tv repair shop in your area see if they can manually
degauss your set , it should be a min. service charge around $25.

I think my TV/VCR may have been hit by lightning

If the set is more then a few years old most likly woundny pay to fix. Find out how much it will cost for an estimate and you be the judge on the repair. A 113inch vcr combo cost only around a 100 bucks or so. Good luck

Sony 20in TV/VCR combo suddenly stopped working?!

The problem you have with the tape is probably one of the nylon or plastic gears have worn or cracked and the mechanism has gone out of timing. the no channels is probably the tuner assy. These Ive seen go out a hundred times. Unfortunatly this is an 8 year old unit and the cost to repair will most likely exceed, or close to the cost of another unit, as I know that tuner assy part #TELH-005A cost around $63.00, and the cost to repair the deck assy depends on what the problem is and then add labor ,your looking at around 150 to 200 bucks. Good Luck
