My proscan had been working great one night and the next morning I turn it on and have double or three images of everthing! Any idea what might be wrong and can I fix this myself or do I need a repairmen.

    Thank you. Other than having three different colored images within close proximity, the picture looks fine. I had already switched out the cables on the back of the tv but there was no change in picture quality. From what I'm reading, clarify if I'm wrong, you might think that it could be the convergence or the tuner!

    One more thing! Would you have any idea how much I could expect to pay for such a repair. I had called a couple repairmen and they said it would be about $85 service call and would credit the service call toward the repair.

Your tv is a CRT projection one which means that the image is generated by three separate tubes. If in the image that you see all those extra images are coloured differently then the convergence is faulty and for that to be fixed the convergence board must be tested - this is a job for a professional. If the image looks normally apart the doubling then this is caused by a malformed signal. If you're lucky it's just a problem with the cables that are plugged in your tv - just fix them better (or replace them) and it should be enough. If you're unlucky the problem is inside the tuner and, since it can't be fixed, it must be replaced. Again this is a job for a pro.

    Since the images have different colours then it's surely a convergence problem. It might be adjusted from the convergence setting from the menu but it doubt it - it has come too suddenly not to be a fault in the convergence board.

  • Azrael SRL Jul 15, 2010

    Depending on the extent of the damage the part will cost at least $25 up to at most $150 (the entire convergence board is replaced). The labor costs and all the rest - that depends on where you live and who do you call.

Proscan PS60690 1st turns off then on by itself. Then 3 on-off cy I've had this exact problem twice. The 1st time I replaced the RCA part number 205064, which I believe is called the HV splitter. I used a generic non RCA part. The TV worked great for several months but went out again and it has been broken for 2 years. I finally ordered the new true RCA part number 205064 HV splitter. The TV, again seemed to be fixed, and what I a beautiful picture it had through our cable box. But, no happy ending at this point. It worked for a couple of days and then turned off and back on while my wife was watching it a few minutyes ago. It cycled off then back on twice in a 3 minute period so with the picture showing and tv still on she went ahead and turned it off. This is how the problem began several years ago the 1st time it went out. I don't want to turn it back on anymore in case the brand new HV Splitter is still OK. Does anyone know what other parts may be going out, causing the HV splitters to go bad and start shorting out. I know the HV spitters have been an ongoing problem with these sets, but since I just put a brand new RCA one in only 2 days ago I'm wondering if something else goes out first and causes the splitter to go bad after a period of time. I would appreciate any help. I can't afford a new set right now and the picture looks so great on this set using a cable box I feel it's definately worth fixing. ps Could missing o-rings cause this? I've never seen the o-rings. Even the first time I replaced the HV Splitter. Thanks
