Problem w/48" JVC iArt 1080, help, paypal INSIDE  

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
A friend of mine guided me to this forum, hopefully someone can help.

A couple months back at a raffle I won this JVC 48" iArt hdtv/projection tv.

After hauling it home, I plug it in the picture comes on, stays on for about 5-10 minutes then goes off. Following this the power button is now flashing and the tv can't be turned back on, pushing the power button does nothing.

I let it sit for a bit, go to turn it back on, it come on for a moment then shuts back down the the power is flashing once again.

2 weeks goes by...


I go to turn the set on, it comes on and stays on for about 5-10 minutes again. Then the same thing happens as stated above, picture shuts off, and flashing power light.


The TV appears to have been a floor model, but is in excellent shape, and when the picture was on it was very good

My question is what could cause this??? Is it a quick fix? I really don't want to spend hundreds of dollars to pay someone to come and repair it, I'm fairly good with electronics and assembling my own computers, but i have no clue when it comes to the innards of a TV set.

Please, any help would be GREATLY appreciated, and hell, if anyone hits the nail on the head and that fixes it or is the exact problem...I'll shoot yah $25 via paypal for the help!


Thanks in advance!

I guess it could be anything but the most likely is a bulb replacement. Why are you not calling JVC to talk with one of their techs?

All they told me to do was unplug it for an hour to see if it was the automatic sleep timer...I did that...after that they told me to call my local repairman...lol. The TV guy wants $150 an hour just to look at it. If its a bulb, where do I go for parts? A burnt bulb would cause the power button to flash?


Thanks for the help thus far!

The power button flashing may be an indicator that the bulb is gone but only a JVC tech knows the answer so call back and ask for help. Isn't this set under warranty? You can get a buld through JVC or do a search on the net.

He's talking about a CRT projection set.

I don't know what's wrong with it...but it most certianly isn't the bulb....it doesn't have one.

(JVC Microdisplay's don't begin 'till 52", and they aren't I'Art's.)

Yeah its a rear projection...the screen doesn't power on at all now, it attempts to, clicks when you first power it then blinks. What could it be?

Its been quite a few months, the TV still sits downstairs as I haven't really done much more research into it, but a fresh post maybe will get some fresh ideas. If I don't plug the tv in for a few weeks and try it it will turn on and work for about 5-10 minutes then, the picture shuts off and the green power light on the front begins blinking, the only way to stop it is by unplugging the set.


Any help would be GREATLY appreciated!


Thanks!

get the serial number off the back of the unit (see if you can find a manufacturer date, too). Then, go back to JVC to see if there is any warranty on that TV. Keep trying if you don't find a helpful CSR.
My guess would be some sort of heat problem tripping an auto shut-off mechanism. Maybe try it with a fan blowing across the back of the TV to see if it lasts longer before cutting out.

Just tried it again after letting it sit for a few weeks...it goes right to the power button blinking, doesn't even fire up.

Model number: av-48wp55
serial: 16999106

Don't believe theres any existing warranty.
