Question about JVC AV-36980 36" TV

1 Answer

BLACK SCREEN When I turn on the TV, I have sound and can change the channels but no picture (black screen). It was manufactured on 10/98. The TV was given to me. So I have three questions: 1. What is the problem? 2. Is it a costly repair? 3. Is it worth fixing or should I just get rid of it?

You could be having some problems in the HT area. look for a burnt low value resister that is around the fly back transformer. the value of the resistor is marked by their color. so look and check the resisters that have gold on the third band of its color.

How to get rid of a black screen on my tv. sound is ok

If you mean that you get a black box, with a little of the picture visible around the edges, then your closed captions are on and set to TEXT. This puts a black box on the screen about 10 seconds after changing the channel. Go into the menu and turn off the closed captions and the picture will be back to normal.

TV picture

The set you have has a bad tuner assembly. At this point most likely you would be better off getting a new TV set. Good Luck
