    I have tried that allready. I took out the cable card in the back of the tv. I then turned it on and the picture and sound stayed on for about 8 seconds. The screen then goes black, the power button flashes blue for about 4 seconds then the picture comes on again and starts all over again. I replaced the cable card, but same results.

    A tv repair shop said they thought it was the brain. $450-$600 to replace over the phone estimate. The tv seems to be searching for a signal.

  • meike May 29, 2008

    I have checked that also. I even plugged another tv into the cable, and it works fine.

    You cant even get the menu to come up on the tv.

  • meike May 29, 2008

    I tried to use the remote on the tv. When you push menu, the menu screen will flash on for about 3 seconds until the power light starts to blink, then goes to black until the power light stops flashing then you can try it all over again. Small window of time to do anything until the power light starts flashing again and recycles all over again.

JVC LT-32P679 Blinking Power Light, Automatic Shutoff


1. Hold [menu] and [vol-] button on the side of the TV
2. while holding these, press the [power] button on the side of TV (NOT remote)
3. blue light comes ON and stays ON
4. wait 10 seconds then let go of [menu] and [vol-]
5. wait another 30 seconds and some type of picture should appear

I think this is right. I got it from the JVC call centers guys so sorry if I missed or messed up a step.

I have the same problem. The next stage is that the picture won't come on at all and the blue light will constantly blink. I think the light source is bad. Noit sure though.
