Question about JVC HD-56G787 Television

1 Answer

Dark Picture I purchased jvc hd-52g787 09/07. The pic began to become dark in 11/08, so I purchased a replacement lamp and installed it. The pic was better, but the brightness was not right. Because the new lamp was under warrantee, I returned it, received a replacement, installed it and the same results. The picture is great but still very dark. Using the onscreen menu, if I turn the brightness up the pic loses the crisp look. Its like it has a dingy look. Almost OLD LIKE quality. I thought that the mirror or projector may just need to be cleaned. I cannot seem to get the screen off to clean the inside. I dont want to damage the screen by forcing it with possible damage. The inside does look to be needing a good cleaning, especially since we both smoke. Any help? Thanks Don

Sorry Don

Smoking absolutely destroys these TVs. Just like Teeth, the smoke gets inside and permenantly yellows the Light Prism. Since the Light Prism is responsible for passing light in these units, the yellowing dims and yellows the picture. There is NO fix for this.

Cleaning these is dangerous since all the parts have either a UV or Polarizing coating on them.

Again, I am sorry but this is the truth. On the other hand, try pressing the "Video" Button to see if one of these settings is any improvement

JVC HD-56FN97 when turned on blue light is solid,red ligt blinks a few times and goes out. My picture is very dark despite adjustments I make in the menu, any help or feed back apreciated.


The set does use a lamp for a light source and average life is 2 years or 2000 hours---many lamps before they actually fail get to be darker.

Picture is dark


Adjust video settings:
  1. Press Wega Gate
  2. Select Settings
  3. Highlight Video
  4. Press + to select
  5. Adjust/increase the brightness.
  6. Press Wega gate to exit.
If picture is still dark, you need to replace the lamp again. Sony recommends that you replace the lamp:
  1. After approximately 8,000 hours of use.
  2. When the screen becomes dark or the color becomes unusual.
  3. When the lamp indicator on the front of the TV flashes.
