Hello, I'm Shahid. Sorry to hear that you're having trouble with this but I'll do my best to help but need more info to troubleshoot the problem.
- Could you please get me the complete model number written on back cover or side panel of TV?
- What video devices/ sources (such as cable box DVD player etc) are connected to the TV and does the problem occur on all video input sources?

JVC Smart Led Tv LT43KC65. Since the hurricane internet services and etc are down. So we have no cable box and so connected to the tv. Only an Hdmi cable for an xbox. When we got the generator last night. The tv worked fine and we used the xbox on there for couple hours no problem. We put back on the generator at 6 pm today and the tv was fine. I was attempting to connect the tv to my phone's internet when the display started to shake. It is shaking up and down and the menu as well. We have unplugged everything and the problem is still there with nothing extra connected to the tv. Please help

Is this just a standard generator, or is it running through an inverter or conditioner of any type?

No a standard generator. 1200W, 120 v. The tv is 100-220v
TV Technician: Nathan, Installer replied 1 month ago

That is likely part of the problem, the power quality from typical generators is simply not smooth enough to operate sensitive electronics like a tv, and can actually cause damage to the tv in the process. A generator is fine for motors, heaters, fans, pumps, etc, they are not designed for electronics. For that you need a high end inverter based generator, or at least some additional power conditioners inline. I would recommend not trying to run the tv off the generator at all, so as not to cause any further damage. When the power is back on, if you have continued issues with the tv, let me know.

it is possible that when normal power returns the tv could still give us problems?
TV Technician: Nathan, Installer replied 1 month ago

Yes, it is quite possible the tv was damaged by using it with "dirty power" from the generator.

These jvc tvs are very poorly built with very low quality parts, so they are very easily damaged and have short service lives, even on good power.
