Re: Random purple or clear static

This is definately a convergance problem you can get someone out to adjust these it is difficult to do yourself and if you got it wrong you might not be able to undo what you did.
But the chances are you will need the convergence ic replacing this will solve your problem and believe me this is a very common fault on the types of tv most the fault i come across with these tv is the ic need replacing unless you are confident with soldering and understand the amount of electric inside a telly i wouldnt advise you do this yourself as the electric inside one of these can and will kill call someone out tell them you need the convergence ic replacing this will solve your problem and also get them to check any resistors as one or a couple of these going can cause the ic to go hope this is some help to you but it is not something you can do unless you know what you are doing let me know what you want to do.
If you are skilled in electrical repair you will need to be able to understand a spec sheet and follow circuit diagrammes and you will also need relevent testing equipment

Hi i have been researching your problem and it seems this happens alot on these types of telly the problem people have been having is with the pcb formatter board and once this was replaced it solved the problem but when you get this replaced make sure to tell them to check the resistors leading to the pcb board as a blown resistor can cause the problem with the pcb board so get these checked as well.

I cant get it to work on full screen

I am having this same problem as this one above (62HM95). The issue I'm having is that it will also not work full screen. I selected the 'Split' option on the remote and the picture on the left is fine... absolutely clean and perfect, with audio. The picture on the right is completely distorted in very strange colors (mostly constant variations of purple), with audio as well. You should note, that the same video information was feed into different imputes to select for the split. In other words, I feed the cable stream into the TV using the component video (Y B R) as well as the coaxial cable and selected both options for the purposes of displaying the same information side-by-side. On screen I selected video option four (4 for color stream HD) and option (0 for cable/antenna). If I highlight either side and select one of them (4 or 0) the screen goes full screen and I see nothing but one solid color of purple. I've researched the purple and they call it 'Electric Purple'. That is all I see... just the solid purple, with the audio. What I have also noticed is that, If toggle between imputes while in the full screen option and come back to either option (4 or 0) the image plays/appears OK for about 2 seconds then goes back to solid purple. I just can't understand why this is happening especially when the on-screen menu displays perfectly fine. I cannot enjoy this TV by only watching half of it in split mode. Besides the multiple replacement bulbs I've had to buy I've completely had it with this TV

I have a JVC Model # HD-56G787 and while i was hooking up Dish box the screen went black. Now when anything is plugged into the inputs (correctly) the screen is black. I have tried using Other Cable,...

Static discharge can destroy electronic components. Since your TV became defective when you were connecting an external device, it is very likely that a static discharge killed the first active component inside. It is a good idea to have a tech check the input select IC is functional or not.
