Question about Proscan PS32500 32" TV

ProScan PS32500 32"-Picture has white static line & Static/burning smell

So there's a white static line going across the screen interrupting the picture. There is also a static sound coming from inside the TV. I turned off the TV and could smell something burning inside. Next day tried it again, and still the same. Took off the rear shroud, and traced the burning smell to the printed circut board located on the picture tube itself. Found a light black mark almost dead center. What's happening?? The TV was fixed a year and a half ago due to a power issue. Now this! The last fix cost $400, what am I looking to pay to fix this now? Is there a over-heating issue common with these TV's? I notice my entertainment center doesn't have too many "breathing holes" to help circulate the air around the TV. Thanks.

Re: ProScan PS32500 32"-Picture has white static line &...

It sounds like the circuit board is arching over somewhere. It could be as simply as cleaning and digging out the carbon mark to stop the arching. This is most likely the screen or focus voltage causing this, if there are no parts that have broken down. This will damage the printed circuit board and make things worse the more you let this cook. This could be dangerous for you to mess with because of the high voltage present, so my best advise would be to get this into the repair shop as soon as possible before this board burns up. It should not cost all that much if the CRT board can be repaired. Good Luck

My son was bouncing a small ball against the screen and then it went to looking like a rainbow. Would this be the picture tube?

He may have caused some type of damage to the picture tube, but usually rainbow effects happen when magnets are present. Perhaps the ball became charged with a large amount of static, which then discharged across the tube, damaging the controlling circuits.

Has sound but no picture

do you feel the static on the front of the set when it turns on and do you see a flash of a white line across the screen when you turn it off?
If so this may help
This is an easy repair if you've ever soldered and would not be too costly for a repair shop to do it for you. The problem is a bad Vertical Output IC (usually mounted on an aluminum heat sink with the part on it labeled LA78?? ) and 1 or 2 bad capacitors. Some times you can even fix the problem by re-soldering the contacts of the IC- To find the IC follow the 4 wires that come from the Yoke (which is a contained coil of wires slipped over the neck of the picture tube(s)) back to the board. 2 of the wires go to the horizontal o/p and 2 to the Vertical o/p the thinner gauge wires are for the vertical.

Philips 27PT6441 27" TV Problem


Pls note that my experience is with the phillips 27" model27PT6341/07. It may not be the same board as yr model, as I can't remember nor find the service manual anymore. (browse around online for it though)

However, after taking the back off. Look close to the rca jack and svideo connection. Mine is located about an inch from the svideo connection.

Here are some pics that may help you.

The new one is the black and gold one marked 10uf 100v in the pic.
Other users have advised to go as high as 10uf 250v, to avoid having the cap overload again.

PS. I had the lines for about 2 weeks. They got steadily worse then one day my tv looked like it was broadcasting an hourglass. The lines converged in the center and flared outward (no pic).

Faint horizontal lines in picture

This is usually caused by a problem in the Horizontal Output section, around the Horizontal Output transformer usually a capacitor or diode going or gone faulty... the line you see are the Horizontal "Retrace" lines that are useually "Hidden" when the circuit is OK..

Still no picture, but there is sound

If you are getting static on screen you dont necessarily rule out the FBT, but if there is a fusible resistor by the FBT that is blowing it may be supplying current to the vert IC, the IC may be shorted internally or externally, check your connections and try replacing IC. Also check the pump up cap and if it is powered off the FBT the rectifier diode.

Static on screen and then turns itself off then on

My first aproach will be to see if the tv reacts to tap on the sides if you see a reaccion when you do it most likely you have a loose conection and need to call someone to find it and resoldered it.Dont do it yourself if you dont know how.
