Proscan ps35653 chassis ctc169 picture to wide for screen

I have a Proscan ps 35653 with a ctc169 chassis. It was purchase sometime after 1994. About 9 months ago my 3 yr old was pushing the buttons on the front of the tv and the next thing the picture is to wide for the screen. So if you are watchhing a ballgame you can't see the score and time or if you are playing guitar hero with 2 players you can't see the keys on the edge. I can't seem to get it fixed and I can't figure out how to get in the service menu. Can you help?

Press the menu button on the front of the tv and then scroll down using the channel buttons to picture format, next change the format from widescreen to standard.

I have an RCA proscan tv, CRT type. My sound has to be turned all the way up to hear it. There is also a low hum whether the sound is up or down and does not change volumn, no matter if the sound is


The ctc169 was the workhorse of the RCA line being used in over 300 models----sounds like a possible audio output circuit---a lot of parts are no longer available and I would be careful having a shop fix a set this old.

YOU "might" be able to get around this with a surround sound system used with a cable box.

I have a RCA Proscan PS35653 that won't power on. I have had this happen before & took it back to Circuit City where I purchased it. They repaired it but are no longer in business. It didn't cost much...


These units are famous for high voltage/horizontal problems which could have affected the power supply. Parts are beggining to be no longer available for these sets. Have a shop give you an estimate before putting a lot of money in it. Thanks for using fixya.

I bought a new 27 inch proscan in 1991. It was


This is probably a tv with the "ctc-169" chassis. The BEST modern chassis RCA built. I own 2 of them that I USE, one is a 32" CONSOLE, a lot like your 27" set the other is a projo. I would keep BOTH of them ANY day--over ANY of the cheap, unreliable, fragile flat--panel sets today!!

FIX your set!! If the picture was good--it still will be--these sets had GREAT tubes in them. Most likely--a power supply isue with a couple of caps in the power supply, perhaps the controller chip for the chopper transistor, nothing likely serious. Probably about 150 repair--or less.

It sounds like you accidentally enabled a zoom feature or something similar.

Most remote controls should have a clearly labeled "zoom" button or a "picture size" option. If not, go into your TV's menu and look for something zoom related.

If this doesn't work, just go ahead and toy around in your TV's menu. I strongly suggest writing down the default settings so you can go back to them if you screw something up.

Good luck!

Likely the capacitor or diode in the pincushion circuit. Blue box on the chassis near the HOT.

My tv wont turn on all it dose is beep when i pluge it in


If you look on the back of the set, there will be a chasis # probably a CTC169 . These sets usually need to have the power supply repaired. These are great sets and have an awesome picture. There is a kit,I which is available to service technicians which will repair the power supply in most cases. If you can find a good local technician , they should be able to repair this problem for approx $125-150. if you have further questions pertaining to this set , I will be happy to advise you. I probably have repaired a coule hundred of these sets. This is one of the few old crt sets that are worth fixing. Scrivitron
