Question about JVC HD-52Z575 52" Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television
I finally decided to upgrade my input to HDMI once my cable company got a new box that had HDMI out. When I hooked up the TV the HDMI input gave me only a black screen then after plugging it in and out a few times gave me a green screen. I know the box and cable work since I hooked up another TV and it worked fine. I called JVC and went through the whole HDMI reset without any luck. They said I need to get this serviced, but I really don't want to pay for this for a TV 3 yrs old, especially since it obviously never worked from the beginning (I just never used the HDMI input until today). How much would this cost me (or is there something I could replace or check myself for less money?)
Hey guys, had the same problem. Found this solution on the web. Worked for me.
JVC HDMI Port Fix
Turn the TV on, and enter the Service Menu. Select 2 for Self Check. Then turn the TV off, and after the fan turns off, unplug the power cord. Reconnect the power cord, turn the TV on, and the HDMI port is reenabled.
Here’s how to get to Service Menu:
Before entering the SERVICE MENU, confirm that the setting
of TV/CATV SW of the REMOTE CONTROL UNIT is at the
"TV" side and the setting of VCR/DVD SW of the REMOTE
CONTROL UNIT is at the "VCR" side. If the switches have not
been properly set, you cannot enter the SERVICE MENU.
1) Press [SLEEP TIMER] key and while the indication of
SLEEP TIMER 0 MIN is being displayed, press
[DISPLAY] key and [VIDEO STATUS] key (Fig.2)
2) The SERVICE MENU screen of Fig.1 is displayed.
3) Verify what to set in the SERVICE MENU, and set
whatever is necessary (Fig.1).
Refer to the SERVICE ADJUSTMENT for setting.
4) Press the [BACK] key to return the SERVICE MENU.
This should work.

On JVC HD-ILA TVs the HDCP is triggered off by light.There is a light sensor behind the rear panel. If the rear panel is removed and the TV is powered on the sensor will lock out the HDCP of the HDMI signal. You all tried to do the reset procedure but you didn't say if the back panel was on or off. If you do the reset procedure with the back off it will just lock out again. Very strong sun light hitting the back of the TV will cause some light to get in thru the vents and trigger a lockout. An NG next to the IP is normal. All of the items listed on the two vertical columns need to say OK. If you reset the HDMI and you are still getting a green screen there is a possibility that the light sensor has failed thinking it is seeing light and causing the HDCP to stay locked out.
IF you get a black screen when you connect a known good HDMI signal this means that there in a compatability problem. A black screen means there is HDMI protocol communications going on but the signal can't be decoded.
It is the same thing if you pick up the phone and dial a number in Moscow, the phone there will ring and a Russian will answer it, So communications have been established but if you can't speak Russian and they can't speak English you don't have a picture.
Many people confuse a green screen and a black screen as being the same thing, They are not.
It would also be good if you give the exact model number since there are several generations of HD-ILA TVs now and the service menus differ a little.

Thanks Dwightvwolf !!!!! This solution should be more accessible. I read somewhere that there was a "fix", but it took me an hour to find this page.
Again, Thank You,
