Question about JVC PD-42WX84 42 in. HD-Ready Plasma Television

4 Answers


Blue power light blinks on both the tv and the power box. I have unplugged the unit and turned it back on...the power light comes on solid (like normal as the picture is warming up), but then after 10 seconds or so there is a clicking sound(the same sound that it makes when you turn it off) and then the blue power light blinks. Any help please? It is almost like the tv is in a safe mode and needs to be reset. Model # pd42wx84 jvc 42" plasma Thanks!

    We had the exact same problem recently with our 3 year old PD-42WX84, and the "JVC authorized service center" quoted me $323 for a new power supply assembly, with a $350 labor charge.

    Blinking blue light for the second time. They sold me a new power board ($700+) and it worked great for about 7 months and now the same thing. I bought a tuner from ebay and same problem. What component is failing on these boards and why?

TV turns on for 2 second and then it is off

Your TV may have detected an error. Try first to have the TV unplugged overnight just to clear it out then observe it after turning it back on.

Blinking yellow light ,no picture or sound.

You have done all you can do. If you had a power outage, when the power came back on a it surged and probably caused a Power Supply problem or something in the micro controller to fail. Either way it 's not good. I would call Toshiba and let them guide you to a Service Facility that can check it out. Depending on your Homeowners Insurance, repairs could be coverd or unit be replaced depending on cost to repair.
Sorry I am not able to help further,

The Power Light is Red

yeah, should stay red when unit is turned off, indicating there's power but it's doing nothing.

Per user manual:
Solid red - power off (standby mode)
blinking red - power off (now cooling)
blinking green - power on (preparing to light lamp)
solid green - power on
