JVC 40FH96 - Is it dead?
I have (had?) at 42" JVC 40FH96 LCD television and just last night we were watching something and the screen went black. At first I figured it was channel, and then perhaps a bad connection somewhere. This morning we took it off the wall, unplugged everything and then just plugged in the power to see if I could get to the menu. Nothing. The power light comes on but no picture at all. We've had it for just over 3 years now and it's been used quite regularly. My wife is at home with the kids so the TV is on quite often; roughly calculated I'd say its been used between 12,000 and 18,000 hours. These things are supposed to last much longer than that I thought. Does it sound likes its toast? Is there a bulb or something that can be replaced? Is there another way I can test it? Thanks in advance.
