Question about Proscan PS50700 50" Rear Projection Television

2 Answers

TV made a loud popping sound and quit working

I was watching TV when it made a loud pop and quit working, I unplugged the set and checked the main fuse, all OK. I checked for power at the main board where the cord goes into and along other areas at the red & black wires. I have power, but the unit still won't turn on.I forgot to add it makes a strange noise too, kind of like a CD drive turning/rubbing. I am not familar with TV electronics (cars yes, tv's no), is there any online manuel or diagram showing me the parts layout and location. By reading these fixes here sounds like I may have a HV flyback tranformer problem. Could this be my problem. My Model # is 50700, production date 08/99 I will add my s/n# later. All of this happened right after my power came back on after gettiing knocked out from Gustav! Thanks

Lamp Problems


If you put in an osram "neolux" type lamp--these will NOT often work in Mits. tv sets. And MIts often sends out Neolux bulbs now. A phillpis bulb for this works MUCH better.

Loud pop


Check the lamp.
Pull it out and look at it.
More than likely the lamp has shattered inside the set and needs replaced.
Bulb replacement is made for consumers and can easily be replaced.
Need any more information, respond to this post and I will reply.

Hi,
It seems lamp/ bulb popped again, check lamp inside tv.
If tv does not show red blinking light then it would be lamp that knocked off, replace lamp in tv to fix its problem, please buy Sony original lamp for good picture in tv.
Let me know if you have additional question.
Thanks.

Heard a loud


Sounds like it could be your power supply board. Same kind of issue i had. Try unplugging your tv completely for an hour.

My DLP TV made a loud popping sound then went off


first. unplug the set for 5 minutes and see if it will reboot. if it does not the you have 2 problems, the chassis is also bad. next open the lamp door cover, it is behind the speaker grill, and behind the lamp door.
take out the lamp and see if it has broken on the inside if it has it needs to be replaced. mits will send you one i believe it is about 100.00 the number is 915P020010. if the lamp looks ok then the color wheel has probably fallen apart.if this is the case the light engine need to be repaired. check out www.tv-techs.com

Projection tv not working


I guess loud sizzling was from High Voltage Splitter in your TV. HV seems cracked and leaking high voltage.

You can observe and confirm it by removing back cover and power up TV from distance and check at rear of TV. Please take care and there should be little dark to observe arc from HV splitter.

If this is the case, HV splitter available in Part Store.

TV started popping then died


sounds like the sound amplifyer IC in the set went bad and it holding down or blew out the voltage regulator. If your a tech first thing I would do is find the sound output IC and disconnect the main b+ lead and see if the tv will come on. if it did I would replace the audio output IC. If it didnt i would have to troubleshoot the Power supply for the missing voltage. if your not a tech its not advised to try to do this repair as there are no user serviceable parts inside this set. Seek A Pro to assist in this repair as there is hi voltage in this set even when its unplugged. Good Luck
