Question about JVC AV-32120 32" TV
We have a , purchased Sept. 2000. I saw a similar problem on here, but the proposed solution so far didn't work. The turned itself off while my husband was playing a Wii game, and when he turned it back on, the red light (''On/Timer'') started flashing -- and won't stop. We have now disconnected the Wii, and have tried randomly pushing the buttons on the front of the TV in different combinations. Still the light flashes (and makes an annoying sound, like the TV is being turned on and off). Every once in a while some combination of button-pushing will get it to stop, but only momentarily. (We've never used the sleep timer on this TV, FYI and FWIW--although it sounds from what I've read here like the timer may be stuck?)
I'm desperate to have my TV back (preferably before my 98%-full DVR explodes or blows up the TV)!

All of these sets have one common problem---there is a 1000 mfd(microfarad) filter cap in middle of the board--IT's location is marked as C926--on the side of it you should see printed 1000uf @ 35v(35 volt max rated cap).
Most of the time this is the problem when the set will not turn on--get a cap of the same value but rated at 50 volts instead of 35. This part only has two leads to unsolder---one side is marked with a minus---this is the negative side--you have to get it in right--the other side is + side of the cap.
I have seen dozens of these sets with this problem--to save a little money when they made it--they used a lower voltage rating cap--the voltage rating determines the maximum voltage the cap can handle.
Part should be available at Radio shack and less than $5.00---if you locate it and the top is not perfectly flat it is bad---I have also seen this cap look perfect and be gone.
If you need any more help or have questions reply to this post and I will assist you.

Hi the problem you are having will be with the starter located on the circuit board where the power lead attatches to the telly thiss will have a thick black wire coming from this to the screen.
To replace this you will need special equipment and i wouldnt advise doing it yourself as the telly is still live up to 2 days after it is unplugged from the mains.
As for the cost of the repair you will find it cheaper to buy a new telly as when the things go wrong like yours you tend to solve one problem after another so it would be best to replace the whole telly its just not worth repairing yourself.
If you wanted it repairing then goto a small repair shop as they are glad of the work and tend to charge alot less than bigger shops.
Please dont attempt this yourself unless you have been trained to read schematices.
Its not worth electricuting yourself by removing the case as their is no easy fix to this problem this is a common problem with all tellys of your type this happens to them all after a certain time so its not just your telly ive had it happen 3 times.
The first time i done the repair as i have been trained to do this type of work but i found i just kept getting problem after problem so the next 2 tellys that went wrong i just scrapped it really is not worth doing.
Sorry i couldnt give you good news hopefully you wont give me a bad rating but if their was a way to solve your problem i would advise you on it but their is no easy fix. sorry
