Question about JVC Televison & Video
I have a JVC D-Series 32 inch desk top TV - not a thin one, not plasma or HDTV - about 5 years old. This has been a GREAT TV but the last several months the picture has become dark. No amount of setting adjustments - picture, color, bright, detail, temperature, game mode, theater mode, standard mode, or TV mode - nothing alleviates this. Don't know what we did with our manual but the warranty has surely expired and the Good Guys went out of business. Going to buy a HDTV soon and put this in spare bedroom - OR should we give away? It has great sound and works great, except for this issue. Is there some way to say replace lamps inside it or some such? Thanks in advance.
The cathodic tube has aged and it's starting to show that - 5 years is about the overall lifetime expectancy of a CRT tv of that size so i should say that it's time for a new one.
You can't replace the tube - it's no longer in production but you could force it to give the same image as before for a few months more. You have to raise the acceleration of the electron gun by raising the voltage and for that all you need to do is to adjust a potentiometer. The problem is that you must do that with the tv working and the voltage there is over 1000 volts, easily large enough to kill you, and if you go over the limit the tube will be seriously damaged.
My opinion: keep the tv as is as long as you can use it comfortably then junk it.
