    same problem, tried to use the remove, tv wont turn on. Status light on the front (illuminated PRIMA) is lit, but does not change to blue (colour when television is on).
    Used both the remote and the side panel.

    I have the same problem except the prima logo will change to blue, but nothing happens. It has taken anywhere from 2 minutes to 2.5 hours to come on. I have sent it to the repair shop and they are having trouble contacting Prima about the part. Any suggestions?

    im having the same problem with Prima 32" lcd, no sound or picture. Seems to be an ongoing problem with Prima lcds. Found this website which has tons of horror stories and think best thing is to bin my tv rather than throw more money away trying to repair.

    I have the same problem. We bought ours at Sears about 2 years ago. Last week unplugging it, plugging it back in & pressing power worked. Today nothing is happening except a crackling sound!

A friend had this problem. TV worked fine, then one day when he turned it on there was nothing. We unplugged and opened up the back of the unit then to look for a blown capacitor in the power supply. The 820uf 35V capacitor was ready to pop it's cap. This is not a common cap so it had to be special ordered.( make sure you ask for the exact cap as the ones that were provided had to be modified to fit, to big) I replace the blown cap with a 1000uf 35V one just to see if the LCD would turn on, it worked. We ordered the new cap ( 820uf 35V) and replaced it with the 1000uf 35V. However we do have another issue yet to be solved or wavy vertical lines on the screen when the satelite of regular TV is played. Not sure if this is a bad ground or a leaky cap or a tuner issue.

Prima = rubbish
I have the same problem. I buy it in Hong Kong last year with 3 year warranty. I try to contact the customer support by email or phone. WTF, no one reply me. Their phone number is invalid. Don't buy these rubbish!!! or you must regret.

I need a code # to program my Universal RCA remote for my Prima TV and my DVD player

I own a One-for-All universal remote, and my booklet says the setup code for a Prima TV ( without a built-in DVD or VCR) is one of the following numbers: 0761, 0783, 0815, 0817. I can not guarantee these numbers will work with your remote, but it is worth a try.
I assume your DVD has been attached separately, and not built into the TV. In some cases, you might not need an additional setup code. Once the TV has been turned on, you simply push the DVD button on your remote, to activate the DVD. The instructions which came with your remote and your DVD should provide you with more details. If the instructions indicate that an additional DVD setup code is required, then please respond by telling me the brand name of your DVD.

I need the code for my poloroid tv on directv unersal remote control

Look for a code name under the brand name of Prima and try that if its there. If thats not there try doing a power scan search with the direct tv remote (look in owners manual for this feature or call direct tv)
