Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. These kinds of issues usually occur after power surge. From what you have described it seems that a capacitor on the power supply board has gone bad which turns off the unit after it gets hot. To start with you can open the back of the unit and check the power supply board which is the board where all the power cords/plugs goes in. Check this board for blown/flat/bulged capacitors and replace them. Also check the main board which is the other board where the power cords goes into, as it works for around 3-4 minutes so the issue seems to be with a bad component not a board. Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.


Thanks
Rylee

    all capacitors on power supply board looks good ( with back off it's the one on right looking on the inside of the back cover ) so you think it's the board on the left?

    As I said earlier if the board on the right is fine then it should be the board on the left

    do you know the name of that board? Thnx

    If the power board is fine then it is the main board that should be checked.

JVC LT40A320 turns on but no picture. Replaced Power Supply & Backlight Inverter (TV was hit by a lightning surge, would not do anything at first) now the green light comes on but no picture or sound.


Since your TV was struck by lighting, the power supply is the first board that gets affected by the sudden change in AC power.. The main board is the next board due to the fragile components and the excess of voltage that is supplied to it when the lighting happened. Since you have replaced the power supply already.. I would suggest to replace the main board and that should restore the functionality on your TV.

TV picture goes out after 10 minutes of viewing with popping sound


It can be a couple things. Something bad on the power board. Or the vertical output circuit. How long ago did you purchase the television. Your best course of action is to have it serviced.
If you need any information or other assistance let me know.
Thanks,
Lee

Screen froze during lightning storm. no picture now. When powering on screen lights and then dims - no picture, no sound


You might have had a power surge.Try unplugging your TV for 5 minutes and plugging it back in. If you cannot get a picture from any device such as a DVD player and cable then your TV needs serviced call a repair man. Good Luck!
