Question about Proscan PS50700 50" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

My Proscan PS50700 turned on by itself in the middle of the night and began cycling through the channels. Luckily, I happened to see the light from the TV and got up and turned it off. When I've tried turning it back on again, it immediately begins cycling through it's channels, even though it's supposed to be on channel 3 for my satellite. It will not acknowledge the remote. I've tried unplugging it, and it doesn't seem to help. I've also put new batteries in the remote. Again, no luck. I'm not mechanically inclined at all. What can I do?

Well, that's the front panel button.Try pushing each button until you know which one is the cause.Actually,you need to find someone to replace this button, because to replace this button,you need to open the TV case, that's why you need an expert to do this.

Hope it works!!!!

Can I adjust the convergence on proscan ps50700 without remote ?


No, and it is not real easy to get into the advanced convergence menu to do it. A a question: on rear of set aside from model number is there a chassis number like PTK195?

My tv. proscan mod. ps50700 won`t turn on


The PS50700 uses the 195 series chassis. The most common cause of the set not starting up is a shorted flyback (high voltage) transformer. Sometimes a shorted flyback will also cause the horizontal output transistor to short too. These parts need to be tested and/or replaced by a tech familiar with the RCA 195 chassis.

Setting up playstation


The PS50700 uses the PTK195 series chassis. You can switch the TV to the video mode by pressing MENU, press channel down 3 times to highlight "4 Channel", press MENU, press channel down twice to highlight "3 List and Labels", and then press MENU. The current channel will be highlighted, and you will press channel down until you go below channel 1, which is where the video inputs are (VID1, VID2, FRNT). To exit, press MENU, choose "Exit", press MENU and choose "Exit" again, or just wait until the menu times out. An easier way is to get a universal remote that has an "INPUT" button.
