Just checked on the prices for a new spare lamp and it looks like they are now selling for around $60.00.

Just got the "lamp needs replacing" memo across my screen. Original lamp has 6511 hours (196F HEX) so need to look for 1st replacement. Can you please advise where you found a lamp for that price? Also, did you replace the lamp yourself and was it difficult to do? Thanks for response.

I ignored the lamp warning and my lamp lasted another 3000+ hours. I replaced it only because setting the brightness level as high as it could go didn't help and the display was now too dim for me.

Google this part number, TS-CL110UAA, to check for the lamp prices. Make sure the lamp price includes the lamp housing. Some stores just sells the bulb without the lamp housing.

The lamp housing assembly is user replaceable ... one screw for the lamp compartment cover and two screws for the lamp housing assembly. The illustrated instructions are on page 100 of the Owner's manual.

CrosshairDS2... Thanks for your quick response on where to find a good price on the lamp. And also thanks for giving the link for the manual w/ page number for the installation of the lamp. Much appreciated !!! Joeyd1

I have a 61R1U and it looks like the light engine is failing. I love this TV so much that I would like to find a source for the replacement parts.

Does anyone know a good source for parts?
post #3995 of 4010
I would start with a call here: http://www.jvcservice.com/store/restart.asp They might still have stock or know who might. Good luck I still love my set and hope it keeps going for a long time.

Amazon has the lamps for about $55. Probably too late, but maybe helpful info for next time.

It is actually quite easy to replace the lamp in the 61" model. The one thing I would beware of is using a discount/cheaper lamp. I replaced my lamp with one of these and it is only 9 months old and I am replacing it again because the picture is so dark already. This time I am spending extra and getting the Phillips unit.

Been subscribed to this thread since Jan 2007 when I got my 70", couple months ago bought my 2nd replacement bulb as a backup since it was such a great price (thanks CrosshairDF2!)

Two nights ago I turned the system on and got no picture on the TV. Shutdown, restart, same deal. Red light was blinking. It's been over three years on the first replacement bulb so I thought it was time so swapped in the new bulb. However, forgot to unplug the TV before I did the replace (TV was powered off).

Powered the system back on and TV goes through the whole startup, theater pro flashes up on the screen and it tells me what input its on, but still no picture. When I switch source to DVD, same thing, "theater pro" flashes on the screen, as does the input, but no picture.

I unplugged the set, let it sit, plugged it back in, no difference. I then unplugged, removed and replaced the bulb, plugged back in, no difference.

I don't think it's the bulb because the TV menu shows on the screen as do the inputs and theater pro toggle.

Upstream I've got a Harman Kardon receiver switching HDMI from a blu-ray and Dish box.

Any thoughts on what's going on? I thought I recalled something about resetting HDMI inputs being necessary in some cases but couldn't find anything in searching this thread.

thanks!

That sounds like your HDMI input needs to be reset. They are designed to disable themselves if the back of the TV is removed to prevent attempts to byass HDCP. They detect that the back cover is off with a light sensor that can be triggered by bright light entering through the ports on the back. I used to have a lot of trouble with this happening from sunlight reflections off the wall behind the TV, but I stopped it by taping a layer of plastic cut from a thick trash bag over that section of the TV.

Turn reset the HDMI inputs:
1. With the TV on, use the original remote and enter the service menu (press the sleep timer and while it shows "0", press the display and the video status at the same time).
2. Select 2 for self check then turn the TV off.
3. After the fan turns off, turn the TV back on. The HDMI ports should work now.

I have purchased a new set to replace my P70R1U in my main viewing area and will be relocating the JVC to another room in the house. I recall a card that had specific instructions on how to lift and carry the TV to avoid damaging anything, but cannot put my hands on it now that I need it. Attempts to google and search for this online have not been effective for me. Any guidance or other relevant feedback that might be of help to me would be very much appreciated. Thanks!

I feel like I've followed this procedure to the letter, but no dice. After pressing "2" to enter the self-check mode, a bunch of information is displayed and nothing seems to happen. Is there anything additional that should be pressed/entered at this point? Cuz turning it off, then back on has not fixed the problem...

Are the ports just shot? :-/
post #4004 of 4010
Make sure you have both witches to the left on the remote.Do the procedure to enter service menu.Shut it off, wait till fan stops, unplug for 2-3 min and plug back in.See what you got. Hope that does it for you!cool.gif

Still got my JVC....going strong...
post #4006 of 4010
In case anybody is interested, I have created and shared an iRule device and feedback for use with this TV using the rs232 connection (I'm using a GlobalCache GC-100 to connect to the network but other options are available). To find these items, search the device and feedback sections under the Community tab with Type = TV and Vendor = JVC, find "JVC HD-ILA Pro" in the list.

My HDMI ports have not been working for years, but I stopped trying, since my Blu-ray Disc player had component analog out.  However, that player has gotten to the point that we really can't use it any longer and we just purchased a new Sony player that ONLY has HDMI.  I've gotten to the service menu, pressed 2 (a series of text items comes up, such as "ANALOG=0, DIGITAL=9".  I turned the set off, waited until the fan stopped, and even disconnected the AC plug for 5 minutes.  Didn't work.

 

Any other suggestions?

Do you have any light at all behind the TV? It is amazing how sensitive these sets are to light back there - they really should have been recalled and fixed. It doesn't even have to be directly hitting the TV; my HDMI ports would trip on a sunny day simply because the wall behind the TV is painted a bright color. I'd reset them and by the time the TV would get through the warm-up cycle the ports would be tripped again. I ended up taping a black plastic flap over the back inputs panel and never had a problem since. It is taped only on the top so the fan can still exhaust by blowing it out of the way.

Try resetting the HDMI ports at night when it is the dark (no lights near the TV - not even reflected), if that works try taping a flap on the back like I did.

It could also be HDMI handshake issues, try another HDMI device if you have one available.

Then again, maybe the ports are truly bad and it isn't a light issue after all - I really hope this is not the case.

Good luck!

Yes, we have LOTS of light behind the JVC:  the back is directly against a sliding glass door that faces north light!  Couldn't possible be more light than that!

 

So you're saying that the HDMI ports themselves on the back panel, where all the rest of the inputs come in, is the place that needs to be dark?  So I think you're suggesting that once I get it working at night (hopefully), I should then tape something very dark over ALL of the inputs to keep the light off of them?  And leave the bottom untaped to allow for the fan to exhaust the heat?

 

Sounds bizarre, i.e. darkness at the HDMI port to make it work.....

 

And thanks for the help!

Yes. You need to cover up any opening that can let light hit the circuit board inside. That include the fan exhaust and any unused ports. If you can shine a flashlight through it and hit the right circuit board you need to cover it up.

Given the amount of light you have described, I think that it is your problem. (fingers crossed)

ETA: I've heard that JVC put light detectors inside to detect operation when the back cover is off and trip the digital inputs. Apparently this is to prevent accessing the pure digital signal after the HDMI security circuit. They neglected to seal up the ports and vents when they made this design decision. eek.gif
