JVC HDTV picture freezes

Try playing some DVD's for a number of hours to see if the fault is the DVR, or actualy the TV set. There is very little in these TV sets that can cause a picture freeze and still have sound!

Scan lines at top of screen

Not likely . Sound like you have vertical overscan problem due to a capacitor or two going weak. If you continue to run the tv with this as your problem your vertical section could over heat making the output IC fail causing a flat line going side to side . Good luck

Your model has a maximum resolution of 720p. What you might want to do is make sure that both your cable/sat box and game stations are outputting at no more than 720 resolution. It's easy to assume that all HDTVs may accept a higher signal, and while they might, some of the scene changes or handshakes may make that operation cause the symptoms you describe.

Can't hold a picture

Your problem while watching cable tv sounds like a bad tuner with little or no adjacent channel rejection. The problem with the DVD and I think to some extent the cable sounds like a video processing problem. This unit has digital video circuits and could easily cause the problem you describe. The easiest and probably the cheapest solution would be to replace the board with a refurbed unit. Two companies which sell refurbed boards are PTS Electronics, Bloomington, IN ( and Tri-State Module, Evansville, IN ( Good luck.

Screen goes dark

I thught I answered this one but if you disconnet the sensor it should brighten up the picture If it dosent then its part of the brightness curcuit and must be replace. As I remeber thewre are severall models that you could simply disconnect. Or there should be an auto brightness feature in the main menu picture ajustment to simply disable or shut it off. Good luck
