Stacey, My comments came from the fact problems found on this series of TV all had the exact same symptom. If you do a google search on AV 28 - 36 inch 980 series everything points to no power. I only saw 10 postings on line. That certainly does not point to the hundreds of TV's repaired off line. I am in San Diego

About 3 to 4 yrs ago, my tv got a surge which did not allow me access to turn on or off. I took it to a repairman and he said something got fried. He fixed it. The problem i was having was not use the remote to access the on/off switch. Do it manually. When ever i used the remote the tv would go dead. By unplugging tv for awhile finally it would catch and the tv would come on. Until recently it has worked, but now its starting up again but now just unplugging and plugging is not doing the job anylonger. My tv is a AV32D502, and its about 6 yrs old. Other than this problem the tv has worked great
My tv is working just fine now. Went to Radio Shack and bought the capicitor $1.59 and a soldering kit with everything in it $7.99, tax $0.63. total cost $10.21. NOT $200-$300 to have a repairman do it. Should be a law against such abominable travesty. it's no different than price gouging at the gas pump. I removed the back cover of the tv myself. found the bad capacitor and it looked just as described, puffed up at the top, but was scared to attempt the soldering so had the maintenance man do it for me $0(damsel in distress here). he put the cover back on, plugged it in and VOILE`. I got my tv back! Tom, if you ever read this, thanks so much. if it wasn't for you i really don't know what i would have done. Thank God i had sense enough to look on the internet and found this thread. i would have been royally screwed and no reach around LOL! I hope that anyone with this problem finds this thread. could save them a bunch of money!
Thanks to you Deb, you have inspired me! This was only the second JVC product I have bought and wasn't happy with the first one, a boom box that died after 2 years. I'll never buy another JVC product.
Well, i just tried to turn on my JVC AV 32980...guess what? NO POWER!!! was working just fine last night. Did a google and found this thread. So, now i become a TV repair woman? Thanks Tom for the fix. I just hope I don't burn my tv up trying to solder it.
Had the same problem with my JVC-32980. Working one day, next day nothing. changed out C926 with a 1000uF 35V capacitor that I bought at Radio Shack for $1.49. TV works like a champ. Took all of 20 minutes to fix.
I have a JVC Model AV-32850. I was having trouble sometimes with the T.V I would turn off the T.V. and it would turn back on. This was happening ocassionally over time until finially, a couple of days ago it just went off by itself and the T.V. was black and the red timer on button just kept blinking and making a ticking noise. I got on google and read all the e-mails with people having the same problem. I went to radio shack, bought the 1000uf 35v capacitor for $1.69. I took off the back of the T.V. Unplug first!!!! Slid out the circut board, located the C926 caacitor, (it was located next to the C928), I vacummed all the dust from inside of the T.V. My brother desoldered the c-926, and I pulled out the capacitor with needle nose pliers, put the capacitor in, (Mine had both wires coming out of the same end) (Cut the wires) with wire cutters, he soldered it and we plugged the T.V. in and it started right up. I can't beleive it!!! Saved me alot of money and time. The negative wire had a picture of a hollow battery on the side of the capacitor. The bottom of the board had the positive marked. We never did this before, it took a total of a half hour to do. The capacitor is located just to the right of the center(looking from behind) It was the smaller of the 2 capacitorS, The 1000uf 35v was slightly larger then the one I replaced but worked fine. The hardest thing was locating the c-926. It was in front of a round looking white spool.(lOOKING FROM THE BAK OF THE t.v.) The c-926 is a round cylinder shaped like a small AA battery. but only 1/4 it's side. HOPE THIS IS HELPFUL TO ANYONE ELSE HAVING THIS PROBLEM. Thank You Tom P for helping out.
I had the same problem as everybody else. Last night the TV worked, today nothing. I've got a 27" JVC that we bought in 1995. For $10 at Radio Shack, because I didn't have a soldering iron, and a half hour of work, I'm back to watching football. Thanks a lot to the people on this forum.
Replaced C296 as indicated by Tom P. (Thanks) and it also fixed my JVC AV27980. This is the second time I have had problems with JVC products with little to no support. This will be the last time I buy JVC.
I have a JVC AV-32980 that is about 6 years old. Same thing... my power wouldn't come on. I Googled JVC TV service, found this thread, and went to Radio Shack. I bought the capacitor before even opening my TV (My trust in you was well placed!). When I opened the TV I discovered that there are TWO TYPES OF CAPACITORS that meet the 100M/35V specification. One is coaxial connection (wire coming out of each end of the cylinder). The other is radial connection (two wires coming out of each end). MAKE SURE TO BUY THE CAPACITOR WITH THE TWO WIRES COMING OUT OF THE SAME END OF THE CYLINDER... I.E. CAPACITOR WITH RADIAL CONNECTION). I removed the old capacitor, went back to Radio Shack to get a new one with the right type of connection, and POOF>>> $1.17 and 20 Minutes later my TV is working again. THANKS GUYS!!! (Too bad JVC refuses to acknowledge the problem... Note to self...:)
My 7 year old AV36980 just stopped coming on today and searching the web for JVC service information I fortunately came across this forum. I found C926 bulging as described, took a quick trip to Radio Shack, paid my $1.75, replaced the cap and voila, the TV powered right up. The internet is awesome! Keith
