Question about JVC AV-48WP30 48" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

Distorsion at certan points

My JVC - which I just acquired via craigslist has a strange problem. at the top third of the screen the images are constrained, to give you an idea what this looks like imagine credits rolling they get to the top the letters become shorter in height. If a person is standing as the image his or her head is too small.

Also, the sides when viewing normal resolution images are not straight up and down, but rather are wavy. Convergence adjustment does not seem to help as all crosses are white. the boxes that go with the crosses are smaller in size than their counterparts at the center and bottom.

Any thoughts are gratefully appreciated. Feel free to ballpark estimate the cost for repair.

Thank you

Re: distorsion at certan points

The problem is from poor geometry which is a factory setting. you will need a tech come and do this with a template, in the factory mode. it sounds as if someone has got into the factory mode and changed settings.

My JVC AV-56WP74 is showing green and purple waves at the top of the screen what is defective?

Common problems with the chassis used in this model for complaints such as this are caused by damage in the convergence circuitry (since there are three separate picture tubes, each mounted in a physical location different from the others, the light each tube "throws" on the screen falls in a different physical location on the screen; the electronics of the convergence circutry force the red & blue light information to "converge" on the image produced by the green tube, which being physically located in the center of the other two is the "master" image), usually associated with the IC's used as amplifiers for the convergence circuits (this model uses STK392-110's) and with the high-wattage, low ohmage resistors used as biasing components for these amps

Spot on JVC hd-ila screen

There are several things that could be causing this. Dust or foreign matter on the inside of the screen, dust or foreign matter on the reflecting mirror or dust in the optical block or light engine. The first two can be fixed by you if you can gain access to the interior. The third will require a technician. If you have had your question answered, please be sure to rate the solution. Thanks!
