Question about Proscan PS32500 32" TV

1 Answer

ProScan PS32500 32"-Picture has white static line & Static/burning smell

So there's a white static line going across the screen interrupting the picture. There is also a static sound coming from inside the TV. I turned off the TV and could smell something burning inside. Next day tried it again, and still the same. Took off the rear shroud, and traced the burning smell to the printed circut board located on the picture tube itself. Found a light black mark almost dead center. What's happening?? The TV was fixed a year and a half ago due to a power issue. Now this! The last fix cost $400, what am I looking to pay to fix this now? Is there a over-heating issue common with these TV's? I notice my entertainment center doesn't have too many "breathing holes" to help circulate the air around the TV. Thanks.

    I have the same problem. A couple days ago I thought we just needed to take the trash out- I thought we had rotting food. Today I turned on my TV, it had this weird noise and now I smell the same smell. It's a fairy new TV, Memorex, but how much will it cost to fix?

It sounds like the circuit board is arching over somewhere. It could be as simply as cleaning and digging out the carbon mark to stop the arching. This is most likely the screen or focus voltage causing this, if there are no parts that have broken down. This will damage the printed circuit board and make things worse the more you let this cook. This could be dangerous for you to mess with because of the high voltage present, so my best advise would be to get this into the repair shop as soon as possible before this board burns up. It should not cost all that much if the CRT board can be repaired. Good Luck

The screen turned off - a bit of a static and the picture dissolved into a vertical white line in the middle of the screen and then blank. The sound continued. The remote did not allow me to turn the tv...

Try plugging it in and turning it on.
If it is the same, we call that busted.
Buy a new projector.
If it was totally black, it might be a burned out bulb. A white line means it is busted.

OK, problem seems in convergence section of TV and can be confirmed by testing voltage supply as mentioned in schematics.

You can download service manual copy from Manual Zone for small fee and it has schematics, exploded views. board location, part numbers info.

Let me know if you need further help.
Thanks.

Still no picture, but there is sound

If you are getting static on screen you dont necessarily rule out the FBT, but if there is a fusible resistor by the FBT that is blowing it may be supplying current to the vert IC, the IC may be shorted internally or externally, check your connections and try replacing IC. Also check the pump up cap and if it is powered off the FBT the rectifier diode.

Static on screen and then turns itself off then on

My first aproach will be to see if the tv reacts to tap on the sides if you see a reaccion when you do it most likely you have a loose conection and need to call someone to find it and resoldered it.Dont do it yourself if you dont know how.
