    we have the same issue and have been able to "rest" the monitor by turning off the power and pulling the power supply. After five minutes or so it has usually worked. However, today we have tried several times and it will not come back on. the diag keeps coming back to haunt us...

That indicates an abnormal temperature rise in the power supply. These plasma TVs are board replacement repair only. The power supply board seems most likely would have to be replaced. I hope you have warranty coverage. It could get quite expensive to fix.

Power on, no picture

check your input.... could be on hdmi or something with no signal... push every button on that remote and see if any of them actually get a menu or something to come up.... backlight could be off or just bad.

My JVC Plasma GM-V42UG was displaying the self-diagnostic light pattern of blinking/red/red, now it will not power up at all. Any suggestions?

It is impossible to say without checking several components and running some tests. It is most likely a problem on the power supply module although it is possible that it could be the y-main, x-main, and y-drive modules. I would definatley let a tech take a look at it and give you an estimate. A lot of times there will be capacitors that will go bad on the power supply module that can be replaced that is fairly inexpensive. You can inspect the power supply yourself for bad caps if you want. The caps will be mushroomed or domed on top rather flat. You can google electrolytic capacitor if you are unsure what they look like.

I have a 6yr old GM-V42UB 42in Plasma monitor. Has been acting up and then picture went away totally, All 3 self diagnosis light in top left are one with only the top one blinking. Any idea what this...

the manual just states to call your local jvc dealer/repairman and tell him what lights are flashing and he can tell you the meaning of the code

it does not list the meaning of what you are describing just the meaning if the top and bottom flash while the middle is solid.

so dont be shy give someone a call even jvc but youll be better off with someone local
