Question about JVC GM-V42 42 in. Plasma Television
This isn't much help,sorry.I searched all over JVC home page and could not find any mention of a plasma TV,or your model number.If everything is posted correctly,it doesn't appear that they have anything left for plasma and they are slowly disappearing also by everyone.I do not know how this site works as far as extra charges or not,or whether they get paid no matter what,but whether or not you approve my solution is fine with me.This site is quickly disappointing me and I see complaints all the time.LCD TV's are proving to be better designed and more reliable than plasma.Most of the circuit boards I have looked up for this size TV are $300+.With the holidays coming up,economists are predicting excellent sale savings due to overstock.This is common with newer technologies.Prices start high,come down as time passes,then when just about everyone has what they need,the manufacturers do not know enough to produce less and there is massive flooding of the item.You probably should just get a new one.We bought a brand new 42" over the summer for about $650.That there is 2 circuit boards.The better brands are LG,Samsung,perhaps Panasonic,JVC,and Phillips,maybe Vizio.I never see Vizios posted here and rarely see the first 2.Please do not buy an Olevia or an Akai or other off-brands.I see constant problems with those 2 in particular.Something you want to look for is a dynamic contrast ratio between 60,000:1 and 150,000:1 with 1080p.Any ratio bigger or smaller either isn't as good or is unnecessary as far as picture quality.Also,never buy a display model.The discount they give seems like a deal but what the TV has already endured is not even close to worth it.Also,if the TV does not come with it's own cleaning cloth,it is best to use one for a flat screen.You always dust it dry and rarely use maybe a little water,as pure as possible,to clean the screen.If you really want to pursue repair on your plasma,here is the link to JVC.Plasmas have gotten somewhat better.If yours is older than 5 years,it is pretty much obsolete.The technology is moving faster than computers did.If you need any more help,here I am. gmccarthy86 hotmail Good luck,Greg
