Question about JVC AV-30W476 30" TV

1 Answer

Cannot get low channels - but can get high channels

When programming the TV I can bring in channels 48 and up but when I try to get channels 2 to 47 all I get is a blue screen. No picture or sound. Have tried adding the channels but it still doesn't work. Worked fine before turning it off and when I turned it on, it was like that. Is it something in the remote I hit by mistake? I've gone throught the menu and try and find something and nothing helps it.

    Had the remote checked out and it is fine. They said it could be in the tuner.
    Don't have it fixed yet, but am going to call a repair man.
    Thank you for your help.

First thing I'd try is disconnecting the AC power for about 30 seconds then plugging it back in and recheck the symptoms. You may also have corrupted data in the EEPROM (a memory chip that holds the channel frequencies and other information the set needs to operate) which would mean a trip to the repair shop. Otherwise, the tuner would be my last bet for this symptom, another shop repair. If the first choice didn't fix the problem and you have picture-in-picture capability with two tuners, you might want to switch the cable to the second tuner stub and switch in the menu to that tuner to see if that works around the problem. If you were using a cable box, of course that would be where the problem lied.

Have a westinghouse lcd tv 50inch model ew50t5kw and would like to know before changing any parts or boards what causes a blue screen no sound or picture


  1. Frank: Verizon. com says try this: Change your VCR's Channel to 3 or 4. Most blue screen issues are caused by the VCR not being set to Channel 3 or 4. If changing the VCR's channel (using the channel buttons on the VCR or from the VCR remote control) did not change your TV screen, go to step 2.
  2. Make sure your TV is not in Video mode. There are three possible ways to change your TV's mode using your TV remote control: 1) Press a Mode button, toggle through the options and select TV, 2) Press a Video button to change your TV's mode from Video to TV or 3) Press Menu, locate Mode or Audio/Video setup and select TV from one of the options. If you are not sure how to change your TV's mode, see your TV's user guide for more information.
  3. Check to make sure your set-top box is plugged in and turned on.
  4. Check to see if other TVs (connected to different outlets) have a blue screen. If they do, contact the Verizon Fiber Solutions Center.

Fix blue screen av27870


Hi. Switch off (mains switch) the VCR. Then see if you can change channels with your TV remote. Blue screen mostly means that no channel has been programmed. If there is , you should at least have the sound. So, if you have sound, there is an internal problem in the TV. If no sound appears, try to get into setup mode (button Menu)
and programm your channels. I suppose there is signal on your normal areal connection. Check this out with another TV set, or use the tuner from you VRC. I know there are a lot of possibilities, but you can sort this out, step by step. Good luck.

Sounds like your VCR & TV are on different channels.
The VCR's ouput is channel 3 or 4. Try turning your TV to either channel and see if you get a picture. OR try playing the tape and after 2 or 3 seconds, push the play button again for a few seconds to change the VCR's ouput channel.

Power went out while tv & Direct TV was on


The garbage on your unused channels are not important, just artifacts from signals not strong enough to produce a picture.
The 'blue screen' on #3 is what many sets use when they sense they are connected (terminated) to 'something' but not receiving any signal.

If sounds a lot like DTV's receiver took a hit.

If you have a second set you can borrow or drag to the receiver, try it first but I don't think it is your problem unless the cable input on it was zapped.

No picture


alot of sets turn solid blue when the signal is lost . check your antenna or cable inputs might be chewed up by pets mostly.
try feeding in a dvd player, or VCR signal and see if that plays on channel 3 or 4 ... if not you might need a new tuner.

Try soldering the vertical output IC, sound without picture usually means vertical output is either defective or has bad solder joints. Does your on screen displays work when you press menu?

There is a button under the bottom edge of the screen (with the controls) that has the options "Normal" and "CATV" - press this and it should solve your problem.
