Question about Proscan PS80690 TV

1 Answer

Will not power up with panelswitch or remote

I've joined your site and have searched for a way to post a new problem for "Proscan Rear Projection TV PS 80690 Chassis CTC188" and am unable to find the place to click for it perhaps I am Blind but it seems the only place i find Post problem is under a model already posted please help me thanks Jer My problem is similar to other models Was watching went into other room came back TV off Asked Wife if she shut it down she didn't tried to power it on and it seemed to try to power up LEDs on guns came on and off 3 times then off unplugged for an hour then tried again same result bypassed surge suppressor same result. Consulted service manual downloaded from net says if power requirements aren't met then this is the result. TV is ging on 12 but still had full bright picture with minor convergence issues in corners. So i'de like to attempt repairs as treplacing an 80 inch TV today is at expensive least, unless I go for front projection. I worked for a TV repairman for a couple of years when I was 16 (50 now) and replaced flybacks, coils, transistors, capacitors, resistors, etc. I have repaired many devices by redoing broken solder connections etc. but I have been repairing and building computers since '93 thief took my scope and signal gen. Still have electrinic VOM with cap and trans checker. So i'd like to get a hold of some sort of flow chart to trace the problem. Sams doesn't list this model, the books i've looked at are too general, and Thomson Projection TV Basic Service Data manual I downloadedfor ctc188 has none, checked HOT it's fine, tried powering up with less voltage 80vac no go cannot check voltages listed in service manual without power, it's not the fuse. please advise

Proscan tv input without remote

Without its remote control, you can't select the inputs. If you wish to buy its original remote control, contact the authorized service centre, or authorized dealer to your device brand.
To select a proper universal remote control, you should know about the number of digits to its set-up codes. There are 3 digit, 4 digit, 5 digit, 2 digit and even single digit codes, to some brand devices. After confirming this, check the sites linked here. Both the sites have set-up code list and set-up procedure to many popular brand remote controls. Check which brand remote control has set-up code/s to your device brand, and buy that one according to availability? Brand name of the remote control isn't a matter, but it should have set-up codes in its code list, to the device you have.
Please note: Every new universal remote control will have set-up code list, and set-up procedure along with its user manual. Never accept a remote control, that hasn't both of this. If you see the site by "MOSAIC" view, will make surf easier.

Sanyo DS31590 no remotes will work, will not turn on power or volume but changes channels

If you can control the TV by using its front panel controls, and only remote control is not working, the fault may be either to its remote control handset or to the remote sensor inside. The remote sensor is a small component, having only three solder terminals and will look like this. 7_12_2012_12_53_47_pm.jpg7_12_2012_12_54_01_pm.jpg
This is the component inside the TV which senses the infrared rays emitted by the remote control, and convert it to digital signals, and send to the microcomputer section circuit to process. This component can be located just behind the infrared remote window at the front panel of the TV. You have to open the TV to access it, and to replace it. Just check your remote for its infrared emission, before going further. Just get more details about how to check a remote control from this site named 'Electro-help'. Pull up older posts there. Just check this link, and locate the site named above.
