Question about JVC AV-20D202 20" TV

1 Answer

Erratic Self powerdown

I recently aquired this tv from a buddy and soon after i got it the screen will power off but the Power light stays lit and I can change channels while the screens off? the sound also dies with the screen but all the functions will work but the picture is getting no power! What causes this??? Can I repair this or is this tv needing a certified repairman? I know my way around the pcb board "so-to-speak" But I'm clueless as where to start when it comes to TV's and i don't wanna get ZAPPED! (which i saw a friend get a nasty jolt when he slipped off his chair, dunna what he touched but i'm not very keen on getting shocked!)So any visual guides as to tell me WHAT NOT TO TOUCH would be reassuring. Thanx KingCaspar

Best thing for you would be to call in a pro as a TV set IS NOT the place to be experimenting around inside of.

I bought a samsung DNiejr 2 yrs ago and recently it has started making a sharp whistling sound. How can i repair this myself

The most likely problem is with the Switch Mode Power suplly (SMPS) However it cannot be confirmed as you did not mention whether the tv screen is dark or having any raster (lighted up).
Do you get the green LED ' Power on' indicator lighted up or stays red only.
If it is green your problem is either with the Horizontal/vertical output stage.

So state more about the current status of your TV

The temp light on my Samsung DLP tv stays lit. Is

No. Refer to your owner's manual on cleaning. You may have dust buildup around the vents or you aren't providing adequate ventilation for the unit.

TV power light blinks off and on and TV dont come on

I had a 26 inch Mitsubishi that developed problems as it aged.  Whenever it went into a diagnostic mode the power light would blink and the set would go through a series of screens to self-test color, focus, sound, etc.  Usually it would then reset itself and run fine.  Once I had to have it serviced and they replaced a mother board.  Eventually (after about 14 years) it just died.

When you plug in the tv the tv appears to come on and you here a click. The timer light stays lit red and the screen will not come on.

There is a fault in your tv, if this is a crt type could be at high voltage section.HOT is shorted , flyback is shorted or both. But atleast your standby power is working. The click sound could be the relay in action.

Manual should be available here to look at or dwonload. I copied the reset instructions. You may have to go through some set-ups after a system reset. Good Luck.

System Reset
If the TV will not respond to either the remote control or the front panel controls and/or will not power Off, press the SYSTEM RESET button with a pointed item like the end point of a paperclip. The TV will turn Off and the TIMER light will flash quickly for about one minute. When the TIMER light stops flashing, you may again turn on the TV. The changes you made the last time the TV was on before you used the SYSTEM RESET button may be lost, however, the changes that were previously saved are not lost.
