First of all, you should know what is the source of this problem (in your case). After that, you will be able to fix it on your own. In this post, I will cover all possible causes and solutions in detail.

In many cases, JVC TV has a blinking blue or red light but does not turn on. Sometimes, there is no light at all, and some users report that their JVC TV is not turning on with the remote control.

There is a different solution for each type of cause of this problem. Now, let’s discuss why this happens and what you can do to fix it.

Why is my JVC TV Not Turning on?

Here are some main reasons for common JVC Roku TV problems:

  • The TV is not connected to the switch properly.
  • Faulty HDMI cables.
  • Dead remote batteries. 
  • Damaged power cord.
  • Main board failure.

How to Fix a JVC TV That Won’t Turn On?

First of all, you should do the “basic” thing and check if your TV is properly connected to the power outlet. If your TV is getting enough power supply, you should try these fixes discussed below.

Power Reset Your JVC TV

You can reset the connection by following these steps:

  • Switch off and unplug your JVC TV from the socket.
  • Press and hold the power button of your TV for 15 seconds.
  • Wait for two minutes to make sure that there is no residual power left on your TV.
  • Plug in your TV and turn the switch on.
  • If you see a red light, it means your JVC TV is working now.

Check Your TV Cables

Your TV will not receive power if your cables are damaged or improperly connected. Faulty and wrongly connected cables can prevent your TV from turning on and cause other problems like no sound issue in a smart TV. That’s why, you should unplug, clean, and inspect your HDMI (and other) cables to ensure they are not damaged and are properly connected.

Change JVC TV Remote Batteries 

If your JVC TV is not turning on with the remote control, then you should try changing your remote batteries. Many times, dead batteries are the main culprit of this issue. So, you should keep checking your batteries and replace them when needed.

The red light on the TV is for the timer, which is in charge of turning on and off the TV at a set time. The red light starts flashing when the timer function is activated.

Disable the JVC TV Timer

Please do not be concerned about the strange red light flashing on the TV screen. You may have accidentally turned it on. You can turn it off in the following way:

  • Press the menu button on the JVC TV remote.
  • Choose the option of ON/OFF timer and press the button with the right arrow.
  • Now, disable the feature by scrolling down.
  • This will turn the timer off. You may now complete and exit.

Clean the Main Board

You should clean the board to be sure that there is no dust. Be careful not to come into contact with any of the parts with your hands alone. Wipe the board dry with a fresh cloth. Compressed air can also be used to remove any dust or debris.

Check the Vents

One possible cause of your JVC TV not turning on could be overheating. Make sure there is no (any kind of) debris or dust obstructing the vents on the TV’s sides or back. If so, clear them out with a can of compressed air. Additionally, ensure that the TV is not situated in a closed area without sufficient ventilation.

Replace The Capacitors

If the issue is still not resolved, you should check JVC TV capacitors and replace them if necessary. For this purpose, you can take the TV to a repair shop. Labor and parts will cost approximately $50. If the TV is old enough or has other issues, I would recommend replacing the tube as well. The new tube will use less energy and last longer than the old one.

Contact Customer Support

If your JVC TV is under warranty, you should reach out to customer support in order to fix it. You can also call them at 1-888-582-8870 (Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 9 p.m., and 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. on weekend days). 

Wrap Up

If your JVC TV is not turning on, you should ensure that it is getting enough power from the wall socket and that the connected cables are in good condition. Then, you should try resetting your JVC TV, removing any Bluetooth devices, and changing remote control batteries. However, if there is a serious problem in the hardware like the main board failure you should contact JVC customer support or any professional person to get it repaired.
