Question about JVC Televison & Video

Loss of picture and sound

I was watching TV and unfortunately hit a wrong button on my remote and that is when my problem started. Now when I turn on the TV the lamp light blinks slow for a short time and then stops. I did unplug the TV for a couple of hours but that didn't help. Also the only way now to turn the TV off is to unplug it. I think it has to do with the input information, but I am unable to access the menu to check for proper setup. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks,

    The model is 61z456. The number of times the lamp light flashed was 20. It might be the lamp but if I remember from the last time the lamp went out both the power light and the lamp flashed continuously. And I was thinking I had sound but not sure. This TV has had thelamp replaced with in the last two years under warranty, not that it might not be bad again but I don't think so since I know I hit a wrong button on the remote and the screen went blank.

    If is in sleep mode I am unable to get it out of sleep mode. Also I would think I woukld still be able to turn the TV off with the control button and not have to unplug it. I guess I have a problem that can't be fixed over the internet. I thought it might be something simple that I was missing or that you might have repair manuals that go into more detail that users manual.

    I removed the bulb and it doesn't look bad. Is there a way of checking them. I guess what I am really wondering since I pushed a wrong button is there a reset procedure I can do.

This is just a theory....

Does the remote have component buttons for use as a universal remote?
example : tv dvd vcr sat etc.....

If so try pushing the TV button and see if that gets the TV to respond

Also is there a button for Input or source on the remote

If so if you accidentally pushed this button you may have switched the tv to receive from any of the various inputs it may have, and if there is nothing connected to that input you would have no audio/video

Hope this helps you

There is a way to check if the lamp filament is open by measuring for continuity using a multimeter in the diode or continuity range. The other way would be to try to see through the fan vents for any sign of light when the TV is trying to power ON.
Pressing a button might not have been the cause for the TV to fail because if that was the case, you will still have access to the menu screens.

In some of the tv there is a setting to put your tv into a stand by or a sleep mode.which causes this problem.

    The TV has detected an internal error and is in protect mode.

    The lamp lights indicates that there is a fault related to the lamp, and probably lamp, or the small ballast board powering the lamp must be replaced.

    The blinking are error codes.

    Depending on how many blinking you have, it is one of the following problems.


    1. the lamp door is not well closed.

    2. the lamp did not fire because the lamp is defective and must be replaced.

    3.the lamp did not fire becsue the ballast is bad, and a technician must replace the small ballast board that powers up the lamp.

    You can find a replacement lamp here, or by calling JVC number listed on the owner manual.

    It is weird that is the lamp, 20 times is not a valid blinking code for this set, then it is rather unlikey that is the lamp.

    You can try removing the lamp and putting back the lamp in place, be extremely careful if you DIY as this is a delicate operation.

    A weird error of this kind is usually associated with problems on dital board that is the main board inside the TV.

    Try leav3ing the set unplugged overnight, if this does not fix the problem, call JVC either to get technical assistance, or to buy a warranty extension.

    A warranty extension will be cheaper than a single repair, and will cover your TV repairs for an extra year or more.

    To test a DLP TV lamp you set the multimeter to test impedance, and test the bulb contacts using the multimeter, if this returns infinite impedance, then the lamp has blown.

Magnavox 37MF23ID, would not turn on. Power button only blinks (green light). We have switched power cords and nothing happens. No picture, no sound.


if the power light comes on but the screen stays black, then your TV might be on the wrong input Channel. for example: you switch inputs when you play games or watch dvds vs. watching regular tv. Try to change the input

You have turned on the demo mode of your TV. One of there procedures should turn it off for you.

1) Press the Time/Day and Control > buttons on your remote at the same time.

2) If that doesn't work press the Menu button on the front panel of the TV for 10 seconds.

I have a Toshiba cz36v51 that won't come on...


I do not have that make and model. However:

Some remotes have to have a code set that matches the brand of the tv. Your remote should have come with a list of brands and codes.

Alternatively, the instructions for your remote should tell you how to determine which code to use.

I'm guessing its the "CC", closed captioning. You have to turn it off, it's either in your menu or you have a button the remote saying either, Text or CC.
