Them main video processor driver board may have to be replaced. It is also possible that the power supply may have a fault.

The factory service tech will try the modules to test for which one has failed, and then leave in the module that fixes the fault.

Gray glowing screen can be due to bad T-CON board (blown fuse, bad IC), or the main baord is not sending the 12vdc to the T-CON board. See my giudes.

Picture is too big for screen


You will have a button on the _original_ remote that says Format, Aspect Ratio, Zoom, Size or just AR. It will cycle through Normal, Stretch, Partial Zoom, Zoom, Gray Bar, or the like. You are not in Normal but in one of the Zooms. Stretch is used to make 4x3 movies fill a 16x9 screen, may not be desirable. Zoom is used to fill the 16x9 screen with movies that have been letter boxed. Gray Bar fills the sides of a 4x3 picture on a 16x9 set with gray to "avoid" burn in. Use normal except zoom on LB. -Ken

Gray spots on screen on a JVC HDILA model HD 56G 787


The HD-ila sets accumulate a lot of dust in the light engine. The worst offender is the little fold mirror just under the lens. I take my set apart about every 8 months or so to clean all the dust from the light tunnel and all lenses, mirrors, diffusers etc. The picture really regains it's pop when this is done. Unless you are a skilled technician though, I would recommend against attemptimg this procedure as you need to disconnect the individual color lcds. Check with a local service center to get it properly cleaned.
