    Have had the Element FLX-3120 for about 13 months and I turned the TV off in the morning and later that afternoon it would not turn on, the red standby light turns on but the blue light and the TV does not.

    I have exactly the same issue, we have this TV exactly for 12 months, but strange enough today we experienced this the first time, identical with the first post here ... the power is connected, and the red indicator is normal, just not responding to remote control or the button below the screen!

    Mine is a 32' 1080 HDTV

    same exact problem. power on (red light) but the tv does not react to power button or remote (no blue light).

    ...someone help us!

    TV is approximately 1.5 years old and have the same problem

  • Smeds Dec 30, 2008

    I just experienced the same problem as well. I called Proview but they have no listing of any recalls. They provided me with a phone number to their complaint division. Has anyone filed with Better Business Bureau? What's involved in a class action suit?

    I have same problem. I called Element but they referred me to Pro View. Pro View says they do not have any recalls on this product. They provided me with a phone number for their complaint department. Has anyone filed a report with Better Business Buraeu?

    I guess we are all the victims of this POS Element Flx3210.....Proview knows there is a problem and Proview chooses not to help their customers with this problem of not powering up. I had this problem while in warranty,3 months after buying at CCity,,,,,,BTW CCity they are worse than Proview. Glad to see them out of business

    Proview fixed it the first time, they wanted me to pay shipping, I refused and finally after speaking to supervisor they agreed to pay for shipping. now12 months later same problem again. Called Proview and asked if they fixed this problem, since im not the only person out there with this situation. Proview said there was not a problem. Yeah right , Proview wants $240 plus shipping to fix, and a 90 day warranty to back it up. Sorry not me,,lost confidence in their product...Any attorneys out there who want to go after Proview. you will have enough customers to support our dilemma.

    This Element FLX 3210 is a piece of ****. I bought it in Circuit City less than one year ago. It broke three times. I am still waiting for them to ship it back to me. I am so glad to see Circuit City is going out of business. I hope Element will do the same.
    P.S. the customer service in Proview company is ****. Any attoney wants to sue this company?

  • Anonymous Mar 04, 2009

    I have a suggestion as to what is causing this issue. Pin 9 of the vga connector coming out of the PC supplies 5 volts to the PC monitors. This could be causing this failure with these main boards. I also heard that if you disable power save it would fix prevent this issue from occuring. Mine just failed a couple of days ago.

  • Anonymous May 04, 2009

    I have a 37in. element model-flx3710 when i press the power button the screen flickers then turns off, i tried calling the number for the warranty but i just get a busy signal....wtf!!!!!!!!!!

  • karbuyer1 May 11, 2010

    If it is the main board is bad it will probably will be bad again until Proview fixes the problem and the problem is with the supplier of the main board. and I do believe it is related to being used with the PC connection also. We need to get Proview to acknowledge their problem. I have written to Proview and still no response..... If Proview is located in California we need to write to the ATTNY General abouit Proview doing business here in USA. China gets rich we get screwed. I made my donation do you want to make yours.

We are all victims of this Element FLX 3210,,,,,the problem will never go away until it recitfied. Ill pay the extra money and buy from brand name ie:Sony....... The sweetness of low price does not equal the bitterness of poor service. I learned my lesson. Proview does not get any more of my hard earned money,,,,,,EVER.

Replace the main board. Follow the link below. If you are handy you can replace the board yourself. I believe my board went bad because I had my PC connected to it. The part cost $179.99. TV works fine again.

The color on my TV is all pink. I have tried a hard reset but it didn't help.


Your TV has lost a GREEN color from a basic color palette (Red-Green-Blue). It is often caused by:
- damaged LCD cable (which connects the display with a signal board inside the TV),
- damaged video signal cable (ex. SCART, HDMI, VGA),
- damaged video processor (on the signal board).
I can't give you a more accurate answer, because I don't know what is your TV mark and model and, in what situations you have the problem.

Help. Element 40 inch. Left home it was fine. No one was in the house came back and this is what it looked like


That is a LCD leak normally from pressure point or heat. It could have been hit prior and that he took a toll on it there's no repair unless you're replace the whole LCD screen. You're better off if you're still on the warranty try to get a replacement just let him know elite if he has no obvious damage
