Question about Proscan PS27125 27" TV

1 Answer

Intermittent loss of picture

My Proscan TV works fine right after I turn it on, but within about five minutes the picture disappears and is replaced by a horizontal white line acrosss the middle of the screen. The sound is unaffected. within a few minutes the picture may, (or may not!), reappear. This sequence of events is randomly repeated as long as the power is on. I love the set, but can't afford a repair shop's bill. I am good with tools and such, know a bit of electronics, and am perfectly willing to attempt any advanced repair procedure; it's either that or the TV goes unused and uselessly taking up valuable space in my garage. Thanks for any helpful advice.

Re: Intermittent loss of picture

You'll have to locate the vertical output IC which should be mounted onto a heatsink, then take out a good magnifier under the printed circuit board and examine the solder connections on the pins of that IC and resolder the ones that are cracked.

I had a similar problem, except I could make the screen and sound come back by banging on the the TV. I opened the TV and poked around on the circuit card and found a loose pin on one of the regulators, labeled C3852. I resoldered the pins and its working fine now.

Vertical line picture

problem is caused by the loss of horizontal deflection signal. It is quite surprising that the entire unit is still working, since usually, a loss of H-Out will disable the entire set. Problem can be as simple as loose solder connection to a more complicated defective horizontal circuit. I would suggest havint it checked by a professional TV tech.

TV works fine for about 1hour.....then the picture

You have a problem in the Hi voltage or horizontal drive circuit most likly. Its a slight possiblity that the video is going out because of a cold solder connection from the flyback transformer blanking pulse to the video/sync separator circuit as it does and has happened in the past. This set should only be serviced by a trained service person as there are no real user serviceable parts inside this set. Good Luck

Loose Picture (Goes completely Black)

Nothing special about that board as I cant seem to find that # but If my memory serves me correctly it sounds like a crt board and its a simple soldering job on the crt socket?? Altough Im not there to see the set still 550.00 seems like an awfull lot to repair a set even if they have to replace the entire chassis. I think you should cal rca and take it to an authorized RCA repair center and if the shop you took it to was an rca authorized center I would also report that to them(RCA). Good Luck
