Question about JVC Televison & Video

2 Answers

Lightening hit really close to my house and my JVC DVR doesn't work anymore. I didn't buy the extended warranty from Fry's when I bought the DVR and they won't fix it since I didn't buy their service policy. I need to find someplace to have my DVR fixed. I live in Austin, TX.

Possibly it can be fixed. Lightning can make it unprofitable to repair. A reputable shop should be able to give you a reasonable estimate. Ask the people that sell these things and ask who fixes theirs.

I wish you well.

It may be a little late for the DVR. But by using surge protected power strips in the future, you may save yourself some grief. BUT, a real close lightning strike can still take out some things even with all the surge protection I have.

Get the power strips with Mov's and rf filtering, and with a warranty on protected equipment.

    Maybe. It may not have burnt out much and it may be simple to fix.

    Or it have fried a bunch of components or the microprocessor and would not economical to repair

TV hit by lightning. Will Best Buy replace without questions?


Ask and see but I would not mention the lightening---if its 3 months old the LG warranty should cover the repair or replacement.

They will not know at all it was lightening unless you tell them.

"This thing just stopped working" they will either get it fixed or get you a replacement set.

I bought one of your products acutally a 32 inc tv and I have it for Atlesst 8 months I really don't watch tv so is not like the tv could had been mess up and is sad to say and I am really upset my tv...


Hindsight is wonderful---always suggest a extended warranty since it either gets fixed or exchanged.

Most sets come with a one year parts and labor warranty but not all.

If the set is dead let me know brand and model number (on label on back) and I will try to assist you.

I have mod#GLD4355RF53 ser.#TH83039469 When you turn it on it turns off.I found out that it is vent system and this mod# has a manufacture flaw because they have vented to the back.


My sollution is to buy something else but buy the extended warranty. Keep reading to find out why.
I have the same model. Only 2 years old and either the control panel or module is out. $150 or $130 depending on part and I install. Then you have the risk of it going out again. It was a $600 + dishwasher. I'm pissed.
I am trying to sell it on Craigs to someone for parts as I hate to scrap it. Probably the moisture problem and the power surges did it in.
I bought a new maytag with the extended warranty and will probably extend it more. The problem is that all the electronics are sensitive, fragile, and expensive. No sense buying a new appliance without the warranty because no new appliance is reliable anymore. I threw away $600+ before and had I paid an extra $100, it would be fixed and still warrantied.

Jvc sxpw650, my house was hit by lightening and now my sub makes a loud noise and the receiver which was grounded reads overload after the speakers work for a few seconds! please help? can i just replace...


The reason it goes into overload is due to the fact that the power amp section parts have developed a short and thus causing an overload in the power supply. The affected parts need replacing and I rather suspect that the subwoofer amp section has also developed a fault. I rather think with the lighting damage that you might have to replace the lot! And not just the subwoofer!! If your house was insured replacements might be covered by that. If not you sound like your in for a big bill!
