Most likly this set has two or maybe trhee problems .. first one sounds like a main power filter is open or the main power supply is at fault. the second coulkd be related or the cause of the first problem and could be shorted convergence ICs. the third could be a bad flyback transformer and good luck if thats the problem.. if the sets 10 years + in age, i would think very seriously into investing much to get this one going again.

Flashes of blue light are fault indications. From the number of flashes occurs at one time switch on, you can get an idea about the faulty section circuit board inside. If you wish to get details about these blinks, check this link.

I have a sony projection tv. Colors/piture not right


Replace convergence ICs and a 5 amp pico fuse on power supply. ICs are part number STK392-560.

Just be sure to use thermal paste on the ICs or they will self destruct in a short amount of time.

T.v. light comes on when I hit the ON button, but there is no sound or no picture.


The standby 5vdc is working but the rest of the power supply sections (5vdc main, 12vdc (for sound), 24vdc (for backlight inverter board) are not on. The first place to look will be the power supply module, Check for those voltages. Look for blown parts,bad caps with leaking/bulging tops.

Hi Sandy, the problem with your TV is called "convergence". It can be a problem with the convergence board or more likely in this model in the power supply or deflection circuits. Unfortunately, troubleshooting by a technician is required.

Proscan PS60690 1st turns off then on by itself. Then 3 on-off cy I've had this exact problem twice. The 1st time I replaced the RCA part number 205064, which I believe is called the HV splitter. I used a generic non RCA part. The TV worked great for several months but went out again and it has been broken for 2 years. I finally ordered the new true RCA part number 205064 HV splitter. The TV, again seemed to be fixed, and what I a beautiful picture it had through our cable box. But, no happy ending at this point. It worked for a couple of days and then turned off and back on while my wife was watching it a few minutyes ago. It cycled off then back on twice in a 3 minute period so with the picture showing and tv still on she went ahead and turned it off. This is how the problem began several years ago the 1st time it went out. I don't want to turn it back on anymore in case the brand new HV Splitter is still OK. Does anyone know what other parts may be going out, causing the HV splitters to go bad and start shorting out. I know the HV spitters have been an ongoing problem with these sets, but since I just put a brand new RCA one in only 2 days ago I'm wondering if something else goes out first and causes the splitter to go bad after a period of time. I would appreciate any help. I can't afford a new set right now and the picture looks so great on this set using a cable box I feel it's definately worth fixing. ps Could missing o-rings cause this? I've never seen the o-rings. Even the first time I replaced the HV Splitter. Thanks
