Question about JVC AV-27020 TV

2 Answers

Black menu screen pops and hides half the tv.

JVC AV - 27020 made in march 1999. Hi i just got this tv, with out the antanna all you see is snow. Well when i hooked up the antanna you could see picture as clear as possible. But after 10 - 40 seconds (varies) this black box appears on the bottom half of the screen. If you change the channel or play with the volume it goes away but comes right back. Why would this be happening. i tried messing with the menu options but nothing. Its the same size  box as the menu screen with out the letters in it. I dont have a remote or book for it so im at a loss. the picture and sound are perfect just that annoying box. Do i need the original remote? could it be some kind of lock on there? Thanks in advance.

Blinking Timer Button

The tv must of turned on the timer by itself. They do do that sometimes. I suggest leaving it unplugged for 24 hours to reset itself.
If problem persists, you may be able to go to your menu and access the sleep mode timer and set it to 0:00 or OFF

JVC AV-27020 TV Blinking LED, Static Electricity on tube but no sound and image

Sounds like a bad main regulator IC.. Try putting a 100 watt light bulb across the main AC fuse, turn on the set and see if it will stay on longer. If it does, replace the main regulator iC. If it does not, then it could be almost anything in the sweep section of the set, and or in the regulation circuit of the power supply. Look for slightly swollen capacitors in the set. good Luck please do not forget to rate this thread.
