Re: Proscan TV powerup

When TV does not start, and sometimes you hear a clicking noise, that means that the TV is on protect mode.

Try first leaving the TV power cord unplugged for some times, let say one hour or so.

Also ensure that the fault is not coming from a faulty receiver box sending bad signal, check if you get same problem with no receiver box or dvd connected.

If that does not work, and you keep having a flashing led on front of the TV, and tv turning off by itself after a while, that indicates a fault condition.

The flashing light indicates a diagnostic state called protection.
When the TV goes on protection there are only two possible reasons.

1The internal circuits are jammed because of electrostatic charges accumulating on capacitors, or because of a wrong voltage read by the main chip on your monitor controller board. this started the protection circuit.

2 The protection circuit detected a wrong voltage or abroken contact, identified an internal fault and kicked in , startingthe flashing light.

If you are in situation one, then theTV will reset just unplugging power cord for one or two hours,sometimes even minutes.

If you are in situation 2 , then there is an internal fault.

Common faults that can occur are a blown capacitor on power board, a convergence IC has blown, or a fault on Digital board.

Check also the video cable or any external connection cable, if the cable is shorting, or the connector is bad, you can get same flashing state because of the video cable.

If under warranty contact the manufacturer ringing the number on the user manual

If you want to repair at your own expenses, just locate any good qualified repairer.

My proscan 42" LCD tv

hi; do check the AC cord if still good.
if your LCD TV wont start , even if you press the power button , it has a power supply failure, maybe some capacitor has bloated or changed value, try to watch this if you know how to solder, or even disassemble the back of LCD TV. if not try to call a repair technician.
thanks ,, hope this helps........

When I turn the power on the the green light flashes, the set attempts to turn on,goes off,green light goes on attempts to turn on and goes off. This is a 36 inch picture in picture, about the first year...

You most likely have a horizontal and/or a high voltage issue. These sets are famous for this problem. If the picture was still good before it went out, it is probably worth getting checked out. Thanks

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
