Question about Proscan PS60690 60" Rear Projection Television

4 Answers

TV Won't Turn On

Model # PS60690 Chasis # PTK188AC.
When I press the power button the green light flashes on and off 3 times. While doing this I get a bright flash for the left projector (facing front screen) area while at the same time, 3 high pitch squeal sounds. There is no response from the other projectors and this is visable due to front and rear panels being removed during inspection. I live in Ontario Canada and am the original owner.

Any assistance would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Re: TV Won't Turn On

I was wondering what the black and red wires coming from the oppisite side of the 4 coax size wires do? I have bought a new hv splitter part number 205064 for my tv but I'm not sure on how to install it, if any one has a diagram or a picture that would be great.

Re: TV Won't Turn On

Thank you My Dream. I did what you told me to do and it worked. My Proscan is now up and running. It was the High Voltage splitter as you told me. For anyone else who might need to change theirs Pay Attention For The Little grommets or rubber gaskets that are around each of the wires. They will sometimes fall out on their own and you will be hard pressed to find them once they fall inside the cabinet.

65" mitsubishi rear projection tv won't turn

IF model number posted is correct and green power light comes on for a few seconds and then goes off:
On front of set press and hold both the Menu and Input (device) buttons at the same time for at least five seconds and release both buttons.

Power light will then blink a two digit error code like 2 blinks, 2 blinks, a pause and repeat it several times.

Let me know what error code is found and I will tell you what it means.

I have a Mitsubishi WD-62525 HDTV that suddenly wont turn on. Just has a green blinking light when you hit the power button. Any ideas?

I found this on another website, most likely it is your power supply capacitors.
  1. Press the "reset" button and hold for 10 seconds .... Does TV turn on and blinking green light turn to solid green.

  2. Unplug the TV from it's power source for various times, ranging between 5 minutes and 24 hours..... Does blinking green light continue upon plugging in the TV.

  3. Disconnect ALL devices from the TV; DVD, Tuner, Cable Box, unplug the TV for various duration times .... Does blinking green light continues upon plugging in the TV.

  4. Press Power and Menu buttons simultaneously and hold depressed for 20 seconds .... Does blinking green light continue to flash.

  5. Press Power and Display buttons simultaneously and hold depressed for 20 seconds .... Does blinking green light continue to flash.

  6. Insure that no front panel buttons are inadvertently stuck in an "engaged" position.

Diagnosis: If none of the above test resolve the issue, then the failure lies in one of the following:

  1. DM Module Capacitors have FAILED.
  2. DM Module is defective.
  3. EEPROM Board failure
  4. Power Supply failure.

Screen won't turn on --flashing green/solid green power light

There is a user serviceable fix for constant flashing green light!!

That is an extremely common problem with Mitsubishi tvs old and new. It can be fixed easily and cheaply for those willing to use their hands.

Refer to this guide to replace the capacitors on your DM Power Circuit Board part # 935C9860. You could also have someone else do it for you for $100

Guide for a $10 DIY repair in capacitors :

Paid Rebuild Service:

That fixes the problem most of the time.

After replacing capacitors is you still get green light try replacing the EEprom. EEprom board also known as the E2P board is part number 935C978001

Tv won't turn on

Usually this problem is caused by part failure on circuit board. Most often in power supply or deflection circuit. You will need test equip. and soldering/desoldering tools to fix this set. Most repair services charge 275.00-475.00 to do this repair on a PS60690. Crate is removable by removing rear cover, disconnecting spk. plugs and keyboard plug. Loosen two screws and whole thing slides out. This can save you service call fee.

Proscan not turning on

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.
