Question about JVC Televison & Video

1 Answer

HD-58S998 This TV gets very finicky when you change connections on the HDMI inputs (there are 2). Because of cord length issues, I reconnected the DTV satellite from HDMI 1 port to HDMI 2 port using the new cable I bought (all was fine), then connected the DVD player with the the old HDMI cable to HDMI 2 - no picture; now there is no picture or sound no matter which cable I use, which device I use, or which port I use including going back to the original configuration. Everything works fine if I use the component hook-ups to inputs 3 and 4. This also happened during initial installation, but the authorized tech guy called support and he told me "it was booby trapped"-something about the HDMI ports shutting down to protect unauthorized work on the TV, or words to that effect. Anyway, anything I could do myself to reset these ports without another service call?

    I resolved this issue after spending some time on the net and elsewhere. Yhe problem is not unique to thisproduct, but is common to many JVC products. The HDMI ports are disabled if a light reached the board, perhaps intended to prevent problems by removing the rear panel with the TV on - however, just using a flashlight or shoplamp externally to view the print on the ports, as I did, will ause the HDMI ports to disable.

    to continue - to re-enable the ports, you must enter the service menu

    Using the remote control:

    1) press sleep - the timer should read 0; while this is still displayed (you only have about 5 seconds);

    2) press display and video status simultaneoulsy

    3) the service menu will appear as follows:

    1 video adjustments

    2 self-check

    3 xxxxxxx



    Press 2--a bunch of codes will appear on the screen that I am sure has meaning to the tech people

    4) Turn-off the TV and leave off for 1 minute

    When you turn the TV back on, the ports will be re-enabled

A hdmi cord was put in hdmi input 3 position and plug into x-box and the tv screen says no signal


Double check the input and that the TV is on that input just in case. But depending on how your Xbox was set up originally the TV and Xbox are not communicating properly. Use your old connected to change the xbox display setting and move the resolution to its lowest, most likely 480. Then reconnect the hdmi to TV and change the settings one by one to see what the highest resolution you can work with. If you choose a resolution it doesn't accept it should revert within a min.

Philips 20pf5120/28 Calibration for gaming using DVI Input


lololol HD to standard video - standard video back to HD is going to cause some issues. Go straight HD to HD with a hdmi to dvi instead. Even if your tv cant do HD theres a loss of information and signal for every adapter you put in and the length of the cord.

I cannot show pictures on my tv from my sony 120 . I have the cords and the input on the tv but nothing happens when I try to show them???The manual suggest to delete the usb port???


Hi,

You can either use the supplied A/V and USB Multi connector cable for connecting the Camera to the TV. Connect the Yellow cable to the Yellow port on the TV for Video and the Red and White for audio. Then select the proper input on the TV where the cable is connected.
You may also connect the HD Out of the Camera to the HDMI Input on the TV using the compatible HDMI cable for the Camera.
Before connecting the Camera to the TV, you may have to change the settings in the Camera depends on the TV type.
1. Component Settings from the Main Settings 2 Menu of the Camera should be set to HD or SD depends on the connection. Also depends on HDMI (HD) or A/V (SD) video connection.
2. Video Out Settings from the Main Settings 2 menu of the Camera should be set to NTSC or PAL depends upon the color system of the TV.
Try changing the settings in the Camera and connect it to the TV to view the images.

Thanks for using FixYa.

Cant get our HDMI to work on our JVC HD 58S998.


First, contrary to popular opinion, HDMI cables connect to a tv are not the best way to connect the two. The HDMI technology has flaws that often shows up as sound problems.

If your TV has the capability for component connections, use them. It will take 5 cables, 3 for video and 2 for audio. You will get superior sound and video. The 5 cables terminate in RCA type connectors and are much cheaper than an HDMI cable.

I hope this helps and solves your problem. :-)

I just purchased a Sherwood RD 6513 reciever, I'm trying to connect a hd cable box (motorola dch 3200), dvd player (sony dvp ns710h) and a rca hd tv (l32hd41). I connected hdmi cords from both components...


Hi! I will be more than glad to assist you. I f you are going to hook up your cable box - motorola to the sherwood receiver, connect an hdmi cable to the back of the motorola cable box, there is only 1 hdmi output there, then connect the other end to the sherwood receiver on the hdmi input, then connect another hdmi cable to the hdmi output and the other end goes to your rca hd tv.

for the sony dvp, you have only one hdmi out, connect an hdmi cable to the back of the sony dvp if u have another spare. connect it to the hdmi input of the sherwood receiver. there is only 1 hdmi output at the sherwood, so u need to use a component cable to be connected at the back of the sherwood receiver component output then the other end goes to the component input of the hd tv.

if you dont have anymore hdmi cable to hook up your sony dvp, u can use component cable, the connection will goes like this, connect a component cable on the output of the sony dvp and the other end goes to the sherwood component input then connect another component cable to the component output of the sherwood and the other end goes to the rca hd tv on the component input.

I hope this will solve your concern, if you have any question, u can get in touch..

Vizio Model#:L37HDTV10A After unpluging the HDMI cable & reconnecting it back, I don't have no more HD picture. The Component cable & HD antena works but no HD brodcasting with HDMI connection....


Is the HDMI port 2 work? Try to turn it off and turn it back on. If it is still not working then the HDMI ports have gone bad. You will need to replace the main board.

JVC LT-32DS75SJ issue with HDMI


Try this

1. Turn ON TV
2. Connect PS3 to TV HDMI input
3. select TV HDMI input for PS3
4. turn OFF PS3 if it is ON
5. Press and hold the [I/O]Power button until the PS3 until you get the "HDMI Detected" message.

Also, this TV has a circuit that deactivates the HDMI if the rear cover is removed. It is possible the HDMI may have been turned OFF. This is reset in the service menu of the TV.

Westinghouse ltv 32w4 hdc 32.02 in. hdtv lcd tv / dvd combo


My 42" Westinghouse HDMI inputs just stopped working. I thought it was the TW Explorer 4250HDC issue so I got a new one from TW. Still said no signal from HDMI. So, I shut the TV down and pulled the power cord out of the back. I waited a few seconds and reconnected the pwr cord. The TV "re-booted" so to say and now the HDMI inputs work. I think TVTEK has the right idea that it is firmware/software related. In the mean time, you might want to give that a try.
