Proscan 60680 60in Shut Off won't come back on - Blows Fuse

Have a Proscan 60680, chasis number PTK171ABC C 2404 K1D, that I purchased in 1992. In the last 3 years, I have had to replace the HV splitter twice. Now the main fuse (where electical plug plugs into tv) blows everytime I replace fuse and plug tv back into outlet.

Would greatly appreciate any help with what could be causing this!

Thank you,

    Mine did the same thing a couple days ago. We were watching it and there was a loud pop and it shut off. It would not turn back on again. I unplugged it waited a minuted and plugged it back in and POP, soon as plugged it back in again. Now the fuse blows every time, so something has shorted out.

    Have similar problem, just that the HV splitter went bad the first time, so ordered a generic part from and waiting to get it and installed. Hopefully this should take care of the problem for some time...

I cant get my mackie 2404 VLZ3 to record any audio? I have the board setup to record from the master but no audio comes into my computer. What to do next?

check your cables, on some Mackie boards press the switch to enable master out, make sure the mute or cancle button is not pressed. i have a 2404 vlzpro mixer it's simular to yours, if you have any problems, you can call Mackie direct if the issue is not solved, it could be a bad button, fuse or slide controle, or even a fuse

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
