This mite sound crazy but it is time to change the oil in your TV. Yes your TV has three seperate picture tubes on the inside of it. A red tube, blue tube, and green tube. Each one of thses tubes has a clear oil that the light shines through. Over time this oil gets cloudy and distorts the light thus dimming and fadeing your picture please have a tech change the oil in your tubes.

The color is not working. I am being informed to change the motherboard. 42 inch JVC. where can i buy the orignal from?


Please elaborate on the color not working:
1.Is the picture clear just the color shift is off, or is the picture like watching a black&white Tv?
2.If the colors are just faded, non-contrasting, come and go, go into the programming section and reset adjustments to achieve the desired picture.
3. For colors that fade in and out ( come and go ) absent any information as to the source ( cable, antenna, satellite ) check all source connections, disconnect and reconnect while keeping a an eye out for loose, damaged, or dirty/corroded connections.
4. If determined that that the television does have a component fault, I question the mother board designation as these units have several compartmentalized card/boards. Replacement board availability and location ( as I do not know your location ) is available from :

The color seems to be fading. NOt a clear picture.


Likely the picture tubes are getting weak from old age. Not much you can do about this.

Color fading, orangy red, video adjustments don't fix.


if it is a tube type unit you may not find a new tube they are almost extinct ,
also, most tube malfunctions are caused by improper voltage, only a qualified tech should work on the high voltage section of a tube tv,,, it can kill you even if it has Not Been Plugged in for a whole year
