Hi this tv is 2yrs old it recently created a mind of it's own and will switch itself off and on making it impossible to use either the tv or dvd.any sollutions to this ploblem would be appreciated.
We had situations such as those described and found that customer is using liquids of some kind to clean the face of the CRT.Some dripping caused the tactile switches to get contaminated,thus acting the maner as you describe.We had to replace the tactile switches and the zener diode on the control board.

Just buy a GOOD QUALITY universal remote control, before you buy, please check if your device is listed on the list of the supported devices. Forged cheap universal controls, a good one starts around $20.00
Some TVs brands - I believe Proline is one of them - cannot be retuned when you are in Digital mode. If you switch back to analogue mode, then press the menu button, the option to auto-scan should be available. Once you retune, switch back to digital mode.
Try this and post back if you need further assistance.
Please rate this solution if you find it helpful. Thanks.
Most times it's video read issue such as a dirty lens on the laser.If you smoke in the house or use a fireplace there is a lot of airborn stuff to leave a slight haze on the lens making reading the disk impossible.Try a standard cd or dvd lens cleaner.The on that looks like a cd and uses alcohol on one of the cleaning brushes on the disk you've got a 50 50 chance.
could be that either the dvd or the vcr are malfunctioning, usually it is the vcr that creates the problem. If you turn tv on and set vol to low see if you can hear the noise of the motor loading or trying to load,with out a tape inside. It may be a good idea to have a qualified tech repair it, these units are difficult to work on and further problems may come up if you are not familiar with the tv.
Codes is almost impossible to break,tries reset everythings in the menu setting,unplug for couple hours,just see if it reset itself,that all could do more than three years old tv not possible find reset codes.
Ok this is actually a common problem, but it can be caused by many things. First lets see what it might be:
1) Dirty on/off switch contacts
2) Control processor responding to interference
3) On/Off switch partially depressed in switch housing
4) Capacitor connect to control bus not working properly
5) Control Circuitry damaged by electrostatic or electromagnetic pulses
Now these are the logical reasons, any other and you need more help then I can offer.
I would not suggest that you do any work on this TV but rather get a qualified TV technician to check the TV and give you an estimate on how much it will cost to repair your TV. It should not cost much.
