Question about JVC AV-48WP30 48" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

JVC 48" rear projection AV48WP30 is HAUNTED

Great picture, have had the set for two years, no problems. all of a sudden it turns on and off all by itself, have had house power checked, its good, have put on different elec circuit, no change. I have an Onkyo home theatre with subwoof directly behind the set...causes no interference. We have the original JVC remote and the Onkyo remote, which is what we use to control the home theatre, JVC CD/DVD player, and the haunted TV. The set will turn off repeatedly, it also turns itself on in the middle of the night, no alarms set or anything like that. The home theatre obviously is not powering on with it so we dont know when the TV is on at night, unless i have to make a pit stop in the middle of the night, and find it playing to the invisible man! HELP !!

    Bill. Thanks for the reply, really appreciated. While relaxing watching my favorite show, with one eye closed....I decided to remove the batteries in both remotes, still happened. In fact last night the thing was turning off and coming back on, a new tactic. I am calling the repair shop today, cant take the "inconvenience of actually having to get off the couch to turn it back on" !! what a society we have become.... I will post whatever the resolution is for future owners of this set..Thanks again Mike O'Connor AKA "Losing Sleep"

Dear Losing Sleep, The symptoms you're describing sounds like a bad tac switch or two. You might notice a bit of a pattern also, consistent with temp changes. (ie: up in the early AM when house got cooler, and bingo set is on). It's not an expensive repair. Tac switches are an item under a buck a piece. However, this is NOT something you want to tackle yourself... This TV is actually built to self destruct if a less than educated tech opens the back. If you remove the rear cover while the power is on you will destroy all DVI programing inside the DVI (Digital Input Module). The only way to restore the programming is to send the unit to JVC. There is a light sensor inside the TV and when the back is removed with the power on the data is erased from the eprom. You might even take it an extra mile when calling around to find a shop to work on it by asking if they know the correct procedure for opening the back of your TV - - If they do know their answer will be something like this: First turn off set and remove power cord then short pins 1 and 2 on the SB connector of digital input module. Before replacing the rear panel remember to remove the short on the SB connector. Do not turn power on until the rear panel is inserted into the cabinet. If you have to work inside the set with power on remove the two cables going to the DVI module. When you find the right shop take the unit in yourself - you'll save a few bucks that way. Hope this helps. Bill

I have a Sanyo FVD48p4 that has suddenly stopped showing the picture, but there is still sound.


Check and replace damaged component/s at its back-light inverter board, or replace this board as card basis. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Surf the site with patience. Pull up older posts. It will be best to replace the inverter board as card basis. http://electronicshelponline.blogspot.com/ To some model sets; especially LED back-lighted types; the back-light inverter circuit will be part of the main power supply board [SMPS]. In such cases, the power supply board might need replacement. To some models sets, the back-light inverter and SMPS section circuit will be integrated at its main board itself. If so; the main board should be replaced. To some models of sets, all these section circuit will be integrated at its main board. If this is the case, you have to replace the main board.

Big screen tv turns on and off on its own!


Your TV is being overheated by the location it is placed. try moving it in an airy area and see if the problem still occurs. The turning on and off is a response to overheating sensors in the TV housing and if not rectified it could malfunction and may cause burnout, a possible risk of fire.

Stay clear of rechargeable NiCads as they supply to low voltage and you may experience cutouts ? Use good quality regular alkaline batteries. Check battery terminals in gps (both ends) for corrosion/rust and clean if necessary.
