Question about JVC AV-32120 32" TV

TV won't turn on; on/timer light flashing incessantly

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)!

    I'm not unhappy with the advice from rogrrabbit (in fact, he sounds quite like he knows what he's talking about!), but Mama taught me to always get a second opinion.

    (Especially since this "malfunction" comes at a very inconvenient time...for one thing, our DVR is almost full, and scheduled to record the season finales of our favorite HBO shows tomorrow!)

    I think I need maybe a little less "technical" answer -- neither my husband nor I would be comfortable opening up the set and soldering anything, considering it's been over 20 years since either of us soldered anything (and that was not electronics but jewelry!).

    This information will probably come in very handy, though, if/when we have to take it to be repaired, and we'll pass it along to the repair person. I just don't think it's something we could handle ourselves.

    We're just trying to keep this old TV out of the landfill, and save ourselves the hassle of shopping for a new TV, until it's absolutely necessary.

    I didn't mean for you to take the "rejection" so personally. Geez.

    I should have been more specific in my original question, I suppose, that I was looking for a..."low tech" solution, for lack of a better term. I saw an answer for a similar problem that suggested pressing a combination of buttons. I was hoping for something like that, and if not, I'm taking it in for repair.

    I have no problem taking this to the shop, and I am HARDLY looking for "free" advice -- I paid $10/month for help here, only to get a snarky, irritable answer like yours. I thought it was definitely worth $10 if someone could help us with a simple solution that would keep our TV out of the landfill. A $5 part would be great if I felt confident I could install it myself without burning my house down or killing myself in the process. I don't. Simple as that. Since the answer obviously isn't as simple as pushing a button or two, and I can't handle the repair myself, I am more than happy to take it to a repair shop.

    There is a difference between being environmentally conscientious and/or frugal and being cheap. I am the former, not the latter, and I resent the implication. (If the site doesn't pay you for giving advice to people who HAVE paid for membership, I'm very sorry. But that's something you should perhaps take up with them.) I thought people paid for advice from experts because they are NOT experts, but apparently I'm expected to know the answer to my problem before I even ask it. Most doctors are happy to let their patients seek second or third opinions before opening things up, as it were, but I guess that doesn't apply to electronics.

    I appreciate the advice I've gotten (although definitely not the attitude), and I thank everyone for it. At least I am forearmed with what you two have said before I call around to find a shop familiar with the problem (so I don't waste precious fossil fuels driving around with a TV in my car trying to find one, you see). I sincerely apologize if I've offended you. It was not my intent; I was only trying to provide more information in case someone had additional advice for me, not to imply that your advice was no good.

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.

    This is the last time I am going to help someone who really does not want an answer--good luck to you--thanks for nothing. You asked the question and got an honest answer--now I know why some techs here do not answer this kind of question.

    maybe you should take it to a shop if you do not understand when someone tells you the problem and the answer--if you want if fixed for free--good luck--cannot afford a 5 dollar part?

Hi the problem you are having will be with the starter located on the circuit boardTV won't turn on; on/timer light flashing incessan - 2.gif 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

I have a JVC AV 32432 and the on timer light is flashing and tv won't turn on.


Flashing of timer is fault indications. Check this site for more details. It has more than 1400 posts to different brands of electronic entertainment and other equipments. All posts referrers with the repair and fault finding to electronic entertainment equipments. It will be best to view it either in Flipcard or Timeslide option, can be selected by the sidebar tag at the top left of the display screen. Timeslide view will be the best to select. If you are using Google Chrome as browser, Flipcard option will be the best.

Timer is not the problem---the tick ticking sound is the shutdown circuit in the set that has been triggered by a short somewhere likely in the high voltage area or the convergence circuit---shop repair---says Akai but I suspect set was made by Samsung who owned that name at one time.

Are there any lights lit on the front of the TV? Have you checked for a bad lamp? When you reset the TV the timer/power light should flash on and off rapidly for 60-70 sseconds. Does that happen?

Tv won't turn on and timer light is flashing


Look closely at the flashing light... Does it flash in a sequential pattern like 4 blinks, a short pause then 3 blinks, a short pause and then 1 blink or some similar pattern????

If so, then the light is not a timer light, it is a trouble indicator light and signals that a component inside the TV has failed testing when the unit tried to power on.

If not, then I have no clue about what you're describing as a timer light. I am unaware of the Misubishi having a timing light installed.
