Hi, I have a PS35160 chassis CTC179DJ. It will work well for a while ,about an hour or more, but then it gets white horz lines all over the screen and the sound pops. It also powers down and comes back on by itself. I have checked the tuner box for cold joints they seem ok.

Re: proscan ps35160 powers off
Hi, thank you for posting make and model number, I`m afraid it`s all bad news for your set, the flyback transformer is getting ready to fail and because of the age of the set it is no longer available from RCA, heres the part number " 227318 " you can try calling some of your local shops to see if they have one sitting on the shelf but I wouldn`t hold my breath, sorry to give you bad news, if you have any questions feel free to e-mail me back, BMW Rider

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.
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
if voltage drops means there is a short circuit in your tv.
1 disconnecting 120v line if supply becomes ok then there is short ckt in horz.section &if it does not gives 120 volts then there is problem in power supply.
please check as per instruction &let me know.
Actually, the set has the PTK188AC chassis. This is a very uncommon chassis. The most common reason for the set not starting in that chassis is a shorted high voltage splitter. That is the large black box inside the set that has 5 thick red wires in it. When the set is turned on, the computer senses the short in the high voltage circuits and immediately shuts the set back off. When the set is on, that box has dangerously high voltage in it so it should only be replaced by a qualified tech familiar with the high voltage splitters in RCA projection sets.
Most likly this set has two or maybe trhee problems .. first one sounds like a main power filter is open or the main power supply is at fault. the second coulkd be related or the cause of the first problem and could be shorted convergence ICs. the third could be a bad flyback transformer and good luck if thats the problem.. if the sets 10 years + in age, i would think very seriously into investing much to get this one going again.
