Hi, my display is not woking on my JVC PC 55. Although, the stereo DOES WORK !! It doesn't even light up. Why is tghis? Thanks in advance, Joel

Possible failure of the display unit or the power to the display unit. This is irrespective of the functioning of the set as the main processor is working and the display operates on the sub-processor.
remove panel and check the flexible strip and the voltage to the unit to confirm.

No picture on the window

Possible that the flexible strip connection had been damaged and so the display does not seem to get the connection correct.
it will be necessary that you have the ability to open the display and camcorder main covers to see that the status of the connection wire.
if the strip seems to be good with continuity tested, then the fault can be failure of the power to the display- check power supply or the failure of the LCD display unit.

My JVC TH-G30 gives me a locked message when I try to open the load tray what should I do?

hello Setting the disc ejection lock
You can lock the disc tray to prevent the disc form
being ejected.
When the main unit is turned off, hold down the STOP
key at the front panel for 5 seconds
If you attempt to open the disc tray by pressing
OPEN/CLOSE key, the disc tray does not open and
“LOCKED” appears in the display window.
To cancel the disc ejection lock, hold down the STOP
key at the front panel for 5 seconds again when the
main unit is turned off.
“UNLOCKED” is displayed in the display window.
Before the main unit is turned off, DVD/CD function
should be selected.

No picture on 42" Vizio LSD.

First update the display adapter drivers

After that, right click on the desktop

If u're using vista, click on personalize and on the next window click on display settings, and then u'd come across another window which would have a drop down menu... click on that and select the 42" monitor, and check make this my main display ..

If u're using Windows 7, click on change screen resolution, and then u'd come across a big window with lots of information, window which would have a drop down menu... click on that and select the 42" monitor, and check make this my main display ..

Operation buttons and sub display are failing

go to ebay and type in the model number of the unit and it will bring up some part that can fix the problem. i had the same problem and i just ordered the part. its actually a ribbon connector. im sure you just open up the radio and take the old one out and connect the new one up. this seems to be a common problem with this unit. the ribbon just starts to tear, and as it tears, you will start to lose functions on the stereo. i happen to like this stereo, so i decided to repair it. good luck with yours.

Infinity radio - display window not functioning

inside the radio is a miniature bulb that back-lights the display, this is true of all radio's, in fact they all use the same tiny bulb, these do burn out from time to time, u will need to remove the radio/CD unit and then pull the top cover off, inside just behind the display u will find a small twist in socket that contains the bulb, u can buy this bulb at any full service auto part's store for about $2
