Power supply, or main drive board are the two most common problems in many of these sets.

You would be best to send the set to the authorized service rep. He will be able to swap out the boards for new ones to find the bad boards. Then he would be able to adjust the set with the new boards, and it would be fixed.

Get an estimate before agreeing to service the set. These sets can be very expensive to repair.

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

No picture


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.

Plasma wnt stay on


I have had this problem in some models of plasma sets before. In most cases the power supply and main drive boards had to be replaced. In a small number of cases the failure was the screen itself.

In all cases, the cost of the repair was expensive. For the screen failure, the set was scrapped.
