Question about JVC GM-V42UG 42 in. Plasma EDTV

1 Answer

Plasma DEAD?-please help

My Jvc plasma 3+ yrs old w/8300 hrs started showing neon green snow around the edge of the picture, then it got worse, now it's dead. When I try and turn it on it flashes a powerful electrical pulse with pure white screen for a split second and then stops. It continues to do this every five seconds (almost like it's attempting to power up) until I shut the main power to it off. Any repairmen or specialists out there that have heard of this?? I'm desperate. Oh yea, model # is JVC GM-V42UG. Not sure where to find the chassis #. Thanks a lot.

    Thank you Jimmy.

    The power supply in the actual monitor unit?

    Is that a large and expensive job?

The green edges you desrcibe suggest a low HT supply from the power supply, and now its likley the power supply has failed completely and will need to be replaced

6MTH OLD HOTPOINT PLASMA TV SUDDENLY HAS NO PICTURE NO SOUND

Hiya!

Sounds like it's on the wrong input, maybe it's analog tuner. Have you tried changing it's input?

JVC PD35D30 Plasma won't turn on anymore...

Yeah, I was going to suggest power supply issue. Plasmas IMHO, are not worth spending the money to fix. Its the reason why they are so cheap these days in comparison to LCD's. I had a 50" Samsung Plasma that went out on me within 2 years (E Buffer board and XMain problem). Its not about the manufacturer but more about the Plasma technology. Do a few searches about plasma and you will find a lot of problems with these tv's. Id say cut your losses, sell the TV for parts and buy a more reliable technology

My plasma picture looks green

You are proberbly using RGB leads, wich is red green blue, each colour runs through each cable, have a look at your cables maybe one is loose, or damaged. check on both ends, but the cables MAY NOT be red green and blue, but the terminals that the plug into will be.

Intermittent 3 inch green vertical line-5 inches from right side

it you have a repair skills you need to open the TV and make sure all the ribon connectors around the circuit boards are proper connected
and if all seems to be ok, the DG board will need to be replaced.

If you dont have any repair skills I would recommend you to take you TV to a repair shop since this is complex repair

42EDT41 colored snow/pixels

I have the same green dots that are seen especially when the bacground picture is dark or black. Mine does not seem to be changing when it warms up, and I also get it on my digital cable as well as on any DVD's I play. Please help with any advise. I think it was always there, but I assumed that a dgital cable upgrade would fix it - I should have known better...

Thanks a bunch in advance...

My plasma tv has green color flashing intermittantly, then goes clear, worse when you change channel. Also can sometimes see logo from another channel. It is about 5 yrs old.

unfortunately my solution was to pitch the tv, and had to buy a new one, it was going to cost $1200 and up to fix it. The tech said 5 yrs. for a plasma is about it.
