Re: problem with picture on older 52"

It's probably cap related... The +/- 30 or 12 volt lines feeding the tuner could be disrupted if a high esr cap is failing... ESR stand for equivilent series resistance and when a cap like that begins to fail it takes longer and longer to warm-up to its peak or in your case heats up beyond it's tolerance and fails to dissipate voltage at a correct rate affecting the circuit its in - in this case the tuner.
Not normally an expensive job but not one I'd want to do in-home. Good chance the tech will need to trace test the circuit with a scope anf ESR meter. Kinda like tearing an engine down to it's basic components if you know what I mean. You're better off taking the unit to them, saving the pickup delivery charges, and as always get an estimate in writing before any repairs are made over your okay amount...
Have a great day!

A couple of suggestions, if only on cable and using a box disconnect the set and box from power and after several minutes repower and see if a reboot helps.

The two models listed here both should also have a soft reset done with the original remote and the set on---Menu,1,2,3, enter.

A lot depends on the quality of the cables you are using. If you are using the leads which came with your cable (scart leads) theyare not string enough you need to purchase gold platted leads in insulation...good manufacturers are belkin/ pure av. this goes for hdmi cables too. it is all well and good buying a good tv but you need the superior cables to use it

Tv picture is jumping

Unfortunately, JVC service manuals are not usually available outside of Authorized service centers. That being said,anyone that services TVs should have seen similar symptoms on other sets and should be able to "fix" this one even without a schematic. Call around. In the meantime, I'll look into this a bit more.
