Re: proscan 36 inch tv
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.
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.
best thing about this new service is that you are never placed on hold and get to talk to real repairmen in the US.
the service is completely free and covers almost anything you can think of (from cars to computers, handyman, and even drones).

Please wait approximately 40 seconds for your TV to completely start up.
On the TV remote control, press and hold the UP ARROW button.
While holding the UP ARROW button, press and release the POWER button on the TV set. (The button may be on the front, top or side of the TV.) NOTE: The TV may turn off and then back on.
Release the UP ARROW button.
If the issue does not resolve, please follow these steps:
Turn off the television. IMPORTANT: For
a projection television that uses an internal lamp, wait 5 minutes
after turning off the television to allow the lamp to cool before
continuing with the following steps.
Unplug the television power cord from the electrical outlet.
Let the television remain without power for 60 seconds.
Plug the power cord back into the electrical outlet. NOTE: If
the television is plugged into a power strip or surge protector, remove
it from the power strip or surge protector and plug it directly into
the wall outlet. If the issue is resolved, the problem is with the power
strip or surge protector and not the television.
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
This problem is either the TV's software or how the mainboard is distributing power so instead of just unplugging the TV, try a power drain:
1. Unplug the product's power cable so the device is not grounded to the house.
2. Press and HOLD the product's own power button for 1 minute to drain the capacitors.
3. Plug the product back into a wall outlet and try to turn it on.
Note: This procedure works with battery operated devices as well so remove the batteries and
hold down it's power/on-off button. Electricity can remain in capacitors and on circuit boards
enough to prevent normal functionality. By clearing the residue electricity, your product
will have a fresh start and many times this will resolve a buggy or non-responsive device
that appears to be dead.
Since hardware either works or it doesn't, your issue is either software or power related since you can get it to work so hopefully the power drain will indicate further.
Hi Dave: "My JVC 36" TV will not power on and has a blinking power light."
That means that the protection circuit has started because a fault had been detected.
If this happened after a power surge it is likely a faulty PSU board.
Try first leaving the set unplugged from power outlet for few hours, this will drain power, reset the protector, and fix problem related to accumulation of electrostatic charges on PSU power capacitors.
If unplugging does not work, that means that there is an internal fault. If this happened after a power problem of some kind, that means that probably one of the capacitors on powr board had blown, and must be replaced. The TV must be tested by a technician to find the fault.
There is a good chance that the failure is in the main power supply.
A second chance is that the set is protecting itself from a failure after the supply; this is more likely to occur in the horizontal section where the highest power consumption occurs.
If the failure is in the supply, it could be a fairly reasonable cost repair.
If in the horizontal section, depending on whether the failure is limited to a $10 horizontal output transistor or a bad flyback transformer.
The transformer should still be available but with markup, shipping and installation, the cost could exceed the $100 US mark.
Generally, I have been recommending folks repair their old standard definition sets, buy a converter box for digital TV, and not dispose of them since the flat panel sets are dying like flies, often just after the warranty expires.
This would at least provide some kind of set when the expensive LCD or plasma sets go belly up.
Mike-It looks like the power supply is going on your tv-it can be replaced. This happens, usually, when little kids are playing wth the remote or power button on the tv. Turn it off and on a whole bunch of times in a row, kids love to do that, and it burns out the power supply part- to make a CRT tv like your RCA36 incher- which is a beautiful machine- I have the RCA/PROSCAN 36 incher-LAST longer...You should always wait 5 min between turning it off and on. Don't ever sell it. This one is worth fixing. It has better color and sound Than the new plasmas and lcds-The Pros know this. Be carefull, they might try and talk you out of it-so they can fix it and have it for themselves. So what if it's not High Deff. It's a great set.
You first need to rplace the outlet if it sparks where the surge protector is plugged in as it should not spark for any reason. then you need to make sure thast its not the outlet causing your problem by running an long extensition corn or moving the set to a differant outlet.
This coulkd be what we techs call a dog set to repair , as a surge can cause all sorts of problems. If your not a tech theres not just one part we can tell you could be bad but you also need to know how to test oit as these sets have no real user serviceable parts inside these sets. Also dont forget about the HI voltage these sets can store inside for a long period of time , even when they are unplugged. First thing that should be checked inside this set would be the main power supply. The fact that its trying to come on tells you i-ts probably not regulating or a short is preventing it to start up. Check all the error amp transistors as well as the referance IC. If you can get the power supply to come up with a variac. then check the verticle Output ic and see if you disconnect that if the su
pply and the set starts up. If not then its most likely a problem in the HI vfoltage/sweep circuit and .or the scan power supply. This could be an easy repair but most times not. Good Luck
