Setup proscan tv

I bought a proscan 37" plcd3717A. Please keep in mind that I am a 6o yr. old woman with very little knowledge of electronics. My problem is I can't get it hooked up! There are 14 "holes" and I have 5 plugs! All I want is to hook it up to my PVR! All I get is a "no signal" on a blue screen! HELP!!

Newer tvs have a lot of input connections ( holes) and can be very confusing. With out knowing what kind of plugs you have I will try to help as best I can. First ,if you have a coax cable hook it to the corresponding connector. The coax is a pencil sized cable that has a center wire and a threaded nut. It will screw onto the threaded connector on the back of the tv. If you have RCA cables these will be color coded yellow for video red and white for audio plug these into the corresponding connectors. There may be more than one set of these connectors and may be marked input1 or input2 etc.make sure to write down which input you plug these may also have colorstream cables there are three green red and blue. Some of the newer tvs don't have inputs for these but if yours does plug them into the corresponding colors. Another cable you may have is a s-video cable this is a single cable that has a multi pin connector on each end. Again find the corresponding connector and plug this cable in. The newer cable is called a hdmi cable and is a cable with a rectangular end. This one cable takes the place of the multi-pin s- video cable or the RCA cables. It also replaces the colorstream cables. If you were able to connect all your cables up. Turn on the tv. You may get a blue screen that says no signal. Don't panic take the remote and find the input button. Pressing the input button changes the tv to the various sets of inputs on the back on the tv. Press the input button several times waiting in between each press of the button for several seconds untill you find the input you connected your cables to. If your connecting a vcr make sure you have a video playing so there will be a signal for the tv to find. I'm not sure what a PVR is, but make sure it is playing some thing when you scroll through the inputs on the tv with the remote. Hope this helps.

The red white and yellow cables are composite connections. The red/green/blue connections are component connections.

The playstation's composite connections consist of two audio connections- red & white, and a composite yellow video connection. The TV's white connection is the audio, and the red/green/blue are component video. You need an adapter that will connect the one yellow(composite video) to the three red/green/blue (component video) connections

Sounds like your resolution on your computer is set too high for your tv to accept. Try putting your computer resolution down to 1024x768 or lower and see if that works.

I have a proscan plcd3717a. The tv keeps turning itself off. It stays on for 2 to 3 minutes then it shuts off. The sleep timer is turned off. Do you know what is wrong with the tv?

Fault with the main power supply regulator board. Check and replace damaged component/s at its main power regulator [SMPS] section circuit. Contact any service technician. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Surf the site with patience. Pull up older posts.
It will be best to replace the power supply regulator board as card basis rather than making "Surgery" to it; which usually will make loss for both money and precious time.

It can be caused by many things such as cold solder joints, loose connections, failing components such as capacitors. Unplug it for about an hour tolet it reset itself to see if it will help, if not, you will have to open it and inpsect he inside, take the voltage reading before and after the problem.

Trying to hookup vhs analog player to hd proscan

your toshiba player should have output composite video and audio which are color coded Yellow for video, red and white for audio same goes for proscan hdtv. connect between the two keeping in mind color of cables. If the toshiba player is really old you can connect the RF cable output to antenna input to the proscan tv and watch taped programs from the player on channel 3 of the proscan tv. If then you want to keep the hookup and still watch HDTV connect the antenna to the toshiba vcr and when you shut off the vcr you can now watch the hdtv channels as usual because now you are bypassing the antenna to the Proscan tv. Hope this Helps..
