Question about JVC AV-32F476 32 in. Television

1 Answer

Distorted Picture Proportions

January 15, 2007. I am back again with a new problem with my JVC AV-32F476 32 inch TV, which I purchased less than a month ago today. Again, the problem seems to have developed on its own and stayed. I wondered at first if it had anything to do with my antenna reception (no cable) but was told that it is probably an internal TV problem. Here goes: The people in the picture seem to be all legs most of the time, and quite tall. As well, they could be legs and chest with a small head which seems screwed on, like a robot's. Although sometimes, and this is rather rare, in the same program you could find a normally proportioned person, but the next one is not, and I don't think it has anything to do with the angle of photography. As well, everybody's face seems a bit longer. Changing the Aspect helps a bit, but I like to watch it on full screen. Also, I changed the settings from Theatre to Standard. That seemed to help also, but the problem persists. I remember in my black and white TV many years ago, one could adjust this with a button at the back of the TV, but now, there does not seem to be any such thing. I wonder, is this a defective model? Or is it just a defective item? Thank you for your help. Laylakaf

Re: Distorted Picture Proportions

Well i beleive ur tv still have a warranty since it is purchased less than a month ago according to you. i suggest that u use it and have it check with their technician. it seems that there is an internal problem with your tv, particularly the vertical circuits. did u try to hook up another tv? this symptom is caused by a poor vertical linearity wherein the image is compressed or stretched at the top or bottom of the raster

L32W961 screen goes black then comes back on. later when video comes back sound does not

That is definitely a manufacturers error.
If it has been less than a year since you purchased it i would contact them.
They will send you to a service center. If it cant be fixed they will replace your tv.
It is all covered by them.
If it is past a year its honestly not worth fixing it,
You can find name brand 32 inch tv's for less than 250
while fixing it would cost around 150.

50' philips plasma tv has sound but picture is distorted

I sugest you to change the video resolution settings on the PS-3 to see if TV sets to any one resolution...if you have any other video out (analog from PS3)...connect the out to TV and check video at different resolutions. If PS3 has Deep Color settings turn it OFF.

JVC 42 inch LCD HD TV has no picture or sound

utencilio posted this fix. It worked for my JVC LT-42X579.

Okay, I found a fix! Called JVC, spoke to somebody there, here it is:
1)unplug the TV completely, no wall no power strips, completely
2)wait 10 sec
3)plug TV back in and Turn it on, the light will still be doing the same thing
4)wait 30 sec
5)ON THE TV, not the remote, locate the menu, volume (-) and power button.
6)while simultaneously holding down the menu and volume (-) button, pressed the power button ONCE and continue to hold the other 2 for 10 sec.
7)on the remote control, go to menu>settings>system info
*** now this I know as a FACT will work on systems that display: JVC - ver.5.32FO001, but I don't know of any other versions***
8)press the mute button on the remote twice
9)unplugg TV again and wait 10 sec.
10) plug TV in and turn on

It SHOULD be working normally now... Thanx to the guys a JVC support for this one, I know it seems like an obvious first place to look, but sometimes it isn't. I for one checked online forums first

I have a 32 in lcd ilo tv that want come on.

Yes I have the solution, I watched my 32 inch ILO tv and turned it off went to bed and when I got up the next morning it would not come on. So I got out my receipt, called Wal-Mart they would not offer me any help I had purchased this T.V. in December of 2007, since this is January 09 it was just by days past the year mark and Wal-Mart also informed me that they no longer carry this brand due to this problem, I called the company but they more or less laughed and said that it sounds like your going to have to pay a repair bill or purchase a new T.V. So I am a single mother with no extra money,especially 1 month after christmas. There is a fuse on the T.V in plain view, when you slip off the back of the T.V.on the right side, it costed me a hole $2.50 to purchase at my local auto parts store, works like a new one. The fuse was burt black, so this was a cheap and simple solution. Also Beware this rep from ILO also told me that there company makes Manavox, and Zennith so if there making them beware!!!!!!!!!

Television picture issues...

I had the same problem when I accidently hit the remote. If you are hooked up to cable make sure INPUT is on the correct setting -- AV, S-Video, YPbPr1, YPbPr2, VGA, HDMI1, HDMI2, ATV & DTV (see button on TV or remote). Hope this solves your problem.

JVC HDTV Pictrure Distortion

Your TV needs to be calibrated. Rear projection TVs are very sensitive to movement. They have 3 color canons that need to be precisely aligned so that the colors overlay each other. They are like three projectors all aimed at the same screen.

If you were to enter the User Menu on the TV, you should find an alignment/calibration choice that will re-align the colors using some on-screen help.

If you are not able to resolve the situation on your own, a certified ISF Calibrationist should be called.

And, since you've bought this TV used, it should be cleaned by a professional (the canons, lenses, etc.)
