I have a GE 46 in TV that had the same occurrence. I believe it is a sign that the amplifier is overheated or stressed. The way I fixed mine was to unplug TV and leave off for a few minutes -then plug in. I discovered this by accident when the power went off one day and the sound returned (had been using my vcr audio output plugged into my stereo for weeks!) This fix will work for weeks-sometimes months-evidently resets the circuits inside the amp somehow. Last time this happened I also removed the back of TV and blew out the dust with compressed air while it was unplugged-still have sound 4 months later without a "reset"-so I'm guessing it did help .

If it wont work since the change over to digital,
it cannot search because of the signal difference.

Mine stopped mid-
December. I used the old reliable 99999 as my zip code, turned off the tv for an hour, turned it back on, entered my correct zip code and was patient. Today, the 15th of January, it popped back up. I have a feeling that it is all due to the switch over. I think different cable companies are setting things up and the gude was lost during that time. Maybe if you are patient, it will pop back up also.

When TV does not start, and sometimes you hear a clicking noise, that means that the TV is on protect mode.

Try first leaving the TV power cord unplugged for some times, let say one hour or so.

Also ensure that the fault is not coming from a faulty receiver box sending bad signal, check if you get same problem with no receiver box or dvd connected.

If that does not work, and you keep having a flashing led on front of the TV, and tv turning off by itself after a while, that indicates a fault condition.

The flashing light indicates a diagnostic state called protection.
When the TV goes on protection there are only two possible reasons.

1The internal circuits are jammed because of electrostatic charges accumulating on capacitors, or because of a wrong voltage read by the main chip on your monitor controller board. this started the protection circuit.

2 The protection circuit detected a wrong voltage or abroken contact, identified an internal fault and kicked in , startingthe flashing light.


If you are in situation one, then theTV will reset just unplugging power cord for one or two hours,sometimes even minutes.

If you are in situation 2 , then there is an internal fault.

Common faults that can occur are a blown capacitor on power board, a convergence IC has blown, or a fault on Digital board.

Check also the video cable or any external connection cable, if the cable is shorting, or the connector is bad, you can get same flashing state because of the video cable.


If under warranty contact the manufacturer ringing the number on the user manual

If you want to repair at your own expenses, just locate any good qualified repairer..

Wii is compatible with all projection TV, try lowering down resolution settings on Nintendo and check PAL/NTFS settings.

Many problems with this unit with the HV transformer (flyback) and also a regulator ic in the power supply. Sorry, nothing easy for this type of problem. You will need a tech to diag. and repair this problem.

Pro Scan/RCA TV's (Pro Scan's are just glorified RCA's TV's) don't hold up very well (cheap components). You can try removing the back and checking the fuse/fuses (could be that simple), but if it's over 5 years old? You may be looking for a new TV soon.
You should find a fuse on the circuit board near where the power cord goes into the back.
I hope this helps, and Good Luck.

yes it could be the problem of power supply.

If it is a glass screen there is nothing you can do to it. First the tube is not available and second too costly if it was. Third the only chance is a used tube from a junked out tv at a repair shop and that will cost too but not as much. But seeing that it is a CTC 179 and assuming the long number is the serial number, it will be hard to find. If that is not the serial number then I'm sorry for I am completely wrong! If it is a lcd tv then the screen cost usually about three quarters the price of the set. Sorry about your problem. Hope this helps At this point I am assuming from deductions that it is a LCD.

I have a proscan tv and i tried connecting a usb cable to the usb service port, and nothing has showed on the menu options and nothing on the source menu... Is the service port any use?

After turning off the power, disconnect everything from the power outlets or surge protector. Wait for several minutes while all residual power exits the system. Return all the devices to power and turn everything back on. Check the television to determine whether it works properly

You need to connect the coaxial cable from the antenna to the TV's coaxial RF (TV) connection. (Really old antennas may need a signal adapter - 300 Ohm to 75 Ohm.) Then make sure that the current video source (sometimes labeled Input) is set to TV. On the later Proscan PLED1526A, there is an Input button on both the TV and the remote to cycle through the list of video source options. Enter the menu of the TV (on screen display). Now you should be able to find a sub-menu for setting the channel information. Using the newer model above, you may have a Channel option. Use the left/right arrows to reach that. Then press the Enter to enter the sub-menu. Navigate to Signal Type with the up/down arrows and set this to Air for over the air channels. (Use the left/right arrows to select the signal type and press Enter.) I believe the HRC is for certain cable systems. Then try the Auto Channel Search.

Note: if the TV was manufactured before 2007, it may only have a NTSC tuner. In that case, you'll need a set-top OTA converter box (ATSC to NTSC) to get most channels. Only low-power stations are still broadcasting the NTSC signals. Depending on the model, you can connect this to the RF port of the TV or the AV (composite video) or the YPbPr (component video) source with the appropriate cables. Change the TV input as needed. Then scan for channels following the directions for the converter box.

I hope this helps.
