Question about Proview Computers & Internet
SOURCE: LCD display Proview
The power inverter is the problem and the only way to fix it is to replace the board. It was a poor design and my Proview 19" experienced the same screen issues as those previously stated. You'll pay $25 for shipping and up to $65 in repair costs. The kicker with Proview is the lousy 1 year warranty. I threw my Proview away and purchased a Hanspree 19" with a 3 year warranty.
There is a 3rd party repair facility in TX that specializes in this type of repair for a flat rate of $75 but that doesn't include your cost to ship and insure it. Another possibilty is to buy the invereter yourself and break open the back and replace it. If you can find the correct part it should run you about $35.
I rank Proview monitors in the same category as the Koss Home Theatre, which is JUNK!

bzinbby1, Hi, I think I know what's wrong. In fact I already know what's wrong! But I want you to do one test to let me know how bad it really is! Here is the test. I want you to reconnect your Proview to an already fully booted "KNOWN GOOD" pc with WIN DESKTOP showing. Then and only then power up the Proview and hold a good, bright flashlight 2 inches from the lcd screen after the screen goes to BLACK! Even though the screen appears BLACK, can you still see the WIN Desktop if you hold the flashlight at different angles???? Get back to me with results of test. I will then tell you what options are open to you as a consumer whose screen is now dark and lifeless. I'm louie12fix on fixya or [email protected] aol.com

First place to look will be the power supply section, look for bad caps (bulging tops or bottom seals), the post back what you see so we can guide you further for direction such as voltage checking, see example of failed monitors due to bead caps: http://s807.photobucket.com/home/budm/allalbums

There may not be a code set compatible with your Proview TV since this brand is not that widely distributed.
The code sets available in any remote reflect the brand names and feature sets of TVs (and other entertainment electronics) that prevailed when the remote was designed.
Even the so-called 'learning' remotes will not program to every InfraRed remote.
Your best chance is to check Shaw's website for the most recent codes:
