Rca proscan PS35152 - power on ?

Hi - My tv has started not turning on everytime. If I unplug it for awhile it seems to fix the prob for a few days & then it starts acting up again, now it wont start at all.
I noticed when i plugged it back in this last time, there was an arc in the prongs where i plug it into the power strip.
Also, the plug itself on the back of the tv seems kinda "wiggly".
There are 2 buttons next to where the tv plugs into the back of the set,
one says polarity and the other says high low off - I was going to push them
but am concerned if i put the switches in the wrong position I may be doomed.
I had the power supply replaced one year ago.
any suggestions? My husband turns into a monster when his tv doesnt work.

I have the same problem - I know it is the power supply and want to repair/replace it myself. Where can I buy the Power Supply or what goes bad on it ? Need part # and where to buy. Thanks!

TV channel sound from a different channel

I just unplugged the tv from the power source and disconnected the cable connection and then reconnected them back after sometime. The TV started auto programming after turning on and that resolved the problem.

TV Pops & turns off

There are no tubes; generally the pop happens because of high voltage. It is being shorted out and the pop is either the flyback transformer or the horizontal transistor oscillator. these two are reponsible for creating the high voltage cycle for your television; when either of them or their circuitry is shorted out you hear that "pop" which is the emergency cut off circuitry coming into play to protect the rest of the television.

Good day.

The spark the you see means that your wall socket is loose. Have it fixed by a qualified technician. With regards to your unit, it has an internal problem. In my experience, the power supply is not dissipating power to the circuitry. The problem is contained in the power supply, have it checked by a technician.

Audio not working on proscan ps61700

I have a GE 46 in TV that had the same occurrence. I believe it is a sign that the amplifier is overheated or stressed. The way I fixed mine was to unplug TV and leave off for a few minutes -then plug in. I discovered this by accident when the power went off one day and the sound returned (had been using my vcr audio output plugged into my stereo for weeks!) This fix will work for weeks-sometimes months-evidently resets the circuits inside the amp somehow. Last time this happened I also removed the back of TV and blew out the dust with compressed air while it was unplugged-still have sound 4 months later without a "reset"-so I'm guessing it did help .

More than likely you have loose connections on the power supply board. Fixing the connections should take care of the problem.
