Question about JVC HD-56G786 56" Rear Projection HDTV

1 Answer

TV won't turn on, possible lamp failure.

We were watching TV just the other day and the screen just shut right off. I am guessing the lamp went out as the screen has been dim on anything other than HD lately. I have looked at D-M for a replacement bulb but I cannot find specific instructions on how to replace the bulb myself. I am pretty tech savy but I don't want to ruin something trying to figure it out myself as this was an expensive TV. Please let me know what to do or where to go. Thanks.

    I went direct to JVC and downloaded the manual and ordered the part early this morning from DM after posting this question. It seems extremely simple as indicated in the owners manual for the product. Thanks anyways.

Most often, I find when servicing these televisions, the lamp has failed but it was due to poor fan circulation. This television has at least 3 if not 4 fans. If you take off the back and find these fans are filled with impacted dust, the fan may be causing the failure. Also check to be certain your door safety switch is making good contact. These tips should ber of assistance but check your fans. A clean inside of a tv is a happy tv!

Hi,

The most common cause of Panasonic Rear Projection LCD TVs not starting is bulb failure. The PT-60LC13 users manual gives some help in translating the LEDs on the front of the TV.

If the TV worked normally for a period of time (months or years) and won't start, the most likely cause is bulb failure. There is no way to measure the bulb, sometimes the bulb is visibly damaged when it fails. Remove the Lamp Assembly and look at the bulb.

If there was an On-Screen Lamp Replace warning and TV won't start, bulb has failed.

The first step with all Panasonic Rear Projection TV "No Picture" problems is bulb replacement. If that does not remedy the problem, get a technician, there are no user serviceable parts. Guessing if the ballast, power supply, controller board or optical engine is faulty is not practical.

The Panasonic Lamp Gallery shows all Panasonic models and Lamp Numbers. There is also a link to Panasonic DIY bulb and lamp replacement.

Sony KDF-46E2000 - Screen Goes Blank


You definitely have a bad lamp. Sony rates the lamp life at between 4000 and 8000 hours. There are 3 things that effect the lamp life, listed in order of importance:
1) number of times the lamp is turned on and off. Every time the lamp is first fired, it takes life off the lamp. Customers I see that turn the TV on in the morning, leave it on all day and then turn it off on the evening can get up to 12000 lamp hours
2) ventilation. Be sure you have at least 6 inches of open space all the way around the set and that the vents are clear of dust and debris.
3) power. If the power is interrupted when the set is on, there cannot be a proper cool down cycle. The fans will run after you turn the set off to properly cool it down, if the power is lost this cannot happen. If your power is unreliable, buy a small UPS to let the set finish a cool down cycle

Occasionally a lamp will faill before the average lamp time due to being defective. from your purchase date it sounds like you got about average lamp time. Be sure to purchase AN ORIGINAL SONY LAMP as a replacement, becuase the aftermarket lamps are bad news, Be sure to rate this solution. Thanks!

Sounds like you need to replace your lamp and the tv will work fine until the new lamp goes out. I have had three lamps since Nov 2006 in mine and I have a notice coming up on my Panasonic saying I need to change the lamp right now. Which is strange, because before there was no warning, it worked fine and then when we went to turn it on again, it just did not work until the lamp was replaced.
