Question about JVC HD-52G886 52" Rear Projection HDTV
I have a JVC HD-52Z575 TV purchased in 2004 that recently had the lamp loudly "pop" and go out. I replaced the lamp from one purchased at DM and when I turned it on, the pictures were much darker requiring the briteness and contrast adjustments to be max'ed out. Also, there is a decidedly darker large area dead center on the screen and within this circle the colors are off in hue. The color purity is wrong. On a full red screen, that same circled area has a purplish tint to it. Faces outside the circle are proper hue where they are purplish inside the circle. The hue adjustment dos not function at all even with color management turned on or off. Turn the color all the way off and the black and white picture is fine except for the darker area.
I though it might be the lamp and tried another new lamp from DM with the same results. I had a JVC "preferred" repaiman come out to look at the set and they said it has to go into the shop. They said if it isn't the light engine, the cost to repair should be between $500-$700! That would include a board that could be at fault on the light engine. They mentioned that they have to hook up a PC to the TV to analize it and possible "update" the eeprom. When I asked why they could try doing the eeprom in the home and what the cost would be, they could not answer except that the computer doesn't go out to the field.
I think they're trying to take me to the cleaners! I've been a TV broadcast systems engineer for over 40 years working for television stations as well as RCA field service enineering and NBC at 30 Rock in NY. I know how TVs work. But it seems to be a dark deep secret about the inner workings of this TV with little or no information available. From what I see in the forums, either I need a rewrite (reset) to the EEProm or a module or a light engine. I can do the work myself. Does anyone else out there have some thoughts on how to get this expensive TV back to working correctly without spending a bundle?
