Question about JVC GM-V42 42 in. Plasma Television
Hi i have just bought a plasma tv from an auction it was very cheep but has a problem when i switch it on the picture is very faint and it looks like a negative photo ,can it be fixed
There is a setting on the menu called colour reverse.
Check to see if that is left on. If it is, turn it off and it should be fine.

There are two things that can cause what you see.
The main drive board to the Plasma tube is not supplying proper drive voltage, or proper biasing to the Plasma tube. Or, the Plasma tube itself have gone weak.
I hope you did not pay too much for that screen. This type of repair is very expensive! I am sure that is the reason why the seller put the set up on auction.
I always tell our customers, to never buy used unless you know the seller is reliable, and that you can test the set and have it professionaly checked before buying it.
If you can find a couple of Plasma sets of the same model with a good display tube and maybe some bad boards, you can then do some board swaps to make one out of the two. That is if the used sets you get don't all have the same fault. We've also been through this.
