Question about JVC HD-52G786 52" Rear Projection HDTV

Annoying projector noise

I have long suffered with the constant and annoying growling noise from the projectors (or their cooling fans) in this unit.  It is similar to the noise from the compressor in a large refrigerator.  Is there a replacement part that can make this unit less noisy?

Re: annoying projector noise

I went through a huge hassle about the fan noise on my JVC 52-inch, but they refused to do anything about it. Likewise, the retailer ( refused to accept a return "once the box has been opened."

The noise is way out of line - we have to turn the sound up all the time to drown out the damned fan. We've tried repositioning the TV, propping it up off the table surface... nothing has helped. The next thing I may try is to build some ducting for it, but it's been this way from day one, and JVC is well aware of the problem.

I'll never buy another JVC product.

I have a nuvision 52 inch lcdlp the projection tv with RGB. It will turn on and have picture like it's supposed to but after about 3 minutes give or take the picture and projector shuts off and power

Usually when this sort of thing occurs with a projection unit, the problem is due to overheating. The unit is designed to self-protect if the temperatures get too high. Check to ensure that the air intake/exhaust areas are clear and that the cooling fans are operational. Excessive dust/dirt can also cause overheating. The unit may need to be cleaned. Avoid disturbing too much when cleaning internal parts and ensure that power is disconnected when cleaning.

Tv shuts down after 20 mins or so need to unplug for a time to re start then will run again for a short time

projector tv works like a projector.
the superhot bulb needs cooling, and if the cooling fails, it shuts down.

so what you have is either the fan is not working, or the cooling system is not working.

have to fix it professionally.

Have a KDF 60Wf 655 will not turn on. Green light comes on then red light with 7 blinks any suggestions? Took bulb out but the bulb light never lit and the bulb doesn't look blown.

Wether it looks blown or not replace it and dont put oil from your fingers on the bulb. Also clean the cooling fans for the bulb and projector (which may mean taking the back off and taking apart projector). Dirt in the projector fans can cause a fault not allowing for the unit to turn on. All the cooling work ins conjunction with a good bulb.

Tv making noise sounds like projector motor.

Your cooling fan may be collecting lint. If it cannot run freely, you will lose a projection lamp. Just like a clothes dryer, you must have a good clean exhaust exit to assure proper performance!

Where is the air filter

No one seems to know what they are talking about when it comes to this issue. I had the same problem for a couple of months. I looked up and down the internet for answers and manuals and came out empty handed. I didnt want to pay a repair guy so i decided to take on this filter problem myself. The OSD should say Projector Fan Filter Unit Needs Cleaning. The fan filter unit they are talking about is on the projector itself. That means you have to remove the back panel. I placed the tv on a blanket screen side down. Revome the board inside the stainless case and remove the projector unit. You have to unplug a few cables...thin gauge wires so be careful. Underneith and on the side of the projector are two foam filters. I vacuumed the heck out of them and its been working fine. You could try getting away with removing the front panel to the right of the lamp. you will see the small foam filter to the left of the projector but there is another one under the projector. Try vacuuming the best you can. My tv was pretty dusty inside so I'm glad to dug in a little deeper.

I am wondering if this sound might be your color wheel spinning. The color wheel often makes a low humming noise as it spins. Try checking to see if this is not the source of your noise. You need the color wheel to generate the colors needed to turn the B&W picture generated by the DLP into a color picture.

Thank you,
