Pretty cheap for a 50" 1080p 3000:1 contrast t.v. right? Yeah, I had the same thoughts. Even with a few bad reviews (over the sound quality from the standard speakers, which were right on cue, you'd need a surround sound/external speaker setup) I still dove in after the "deal," however the phrase, "you get what you pay for," really fits well. I had this t.v. for a mere month and one week before it decided to simply shut off, with no warning, and wouldn't recognize any power whatsoever. If you are on a budget, but want a large flat screen, don't settle for this t.v. You'll want to spend the extra 100 bucks to get a better brand. (Proscan = R.C.A. by the way) If you want to get a good quality 50+" television, be prepared to spend no less than around 600$, because the quality under that isn't worth the money.

We bought this TV in April and within a week the screen went crazy. Took it back to ABC and got a new one. Also bought the extended warranty. The picture on this TV just went out, so back to ABC. Ps, the sound for me, no matter how I adjust is annoying. We had to buy a sound bar to fix it. You get what you pay for.

I brought this TV in September. Rarely watch it. It randomly cut off & now it want cut on anymore. I have to unplug it several times to get it to cut on. Customer service is horrible and rude. Factory will only repair it if you pay for shipping which is a $100 +. I just waste my money on a 50".

I purchased a Proscan PLCD5092A-B LCD television just 1-1/2 years ago. It worked great, but now will not turn on. The red light goes to green, but there is no picture. At first, I could unplug, plug back in and would get a picture after many tries.
I called for service. The repairperson told me the main board needed to be replaced. The item costs less than $75.00. I found the main board on the internet, however, it turned out to be a different configuration and would not work. I called Proscan and found out it was sold to Curtiss. I called Curtiss and was told they do not sell parts.
I spend 8-hours over 2 days searching on the internet. It seems that the part I need does not exist in the US at this time. Often the part is available but rarely then the part is harvested from a TV which is either used or was broken during shipment to the dealer.
One parts supplier told me that Proscan was the worst TV for repair parts. Another told me to always stay with big-name manufacturers.
I hope to find the part. I hate to throw out a TV that is only 1-1/2 years old.
If I have to buy a new one, it will be a major brand such as Samsung, Vizio, or Sony.

Mine is just over a year old and it went dead. The repair shop that has it found it has corrupted firmware and it needs to be re-flashed. Because they didn't have this model's firmware in their inventory, they tried an RCA and Sceptre firmware (same basic main board) and the TV will now power on, but both firmwares tried have picture issues (upside down or pixely), plus the welcome screen will say either RCA or Sceptre. I called Curtis Proscan for help and they wont do any of the following:

1) email the proper firmware to me or the shop
2) sell me or the shop the memory that contains the firmware
3) sell me or the shop the main board

Their advice is for me to pack it up and ship it to Michigan USA for service.

My TV could be repaired with just the courtesy of an email, and they won't do it.

I just want to correct the comment from a reviewer of this item that "Proscan = RCA", this is NOT true. Proscan is currently made and distributed by Curtis. Years ago, the Proscan name was used as RCA's step-up line of AV products.

It took two external speaker system attempts to finally figure out how to turn off those nasty internal speakers as there's no option in the Settings. First attempt was to use the earphone jack but figured there must be a better way and then it dawned on me. I hooked up cables per diagram and then simply muted internal speakers from ProScan remote. Works like a charm.

We bought this TV November 23rd of 2012 and the picture does need some work but the more cords and the settings that you hook it up to makes the picture get better and better. We also connected our new Blue/Ray DVD and boy the picture is great!!!! I will however get the extended warranty because nothing is guarantied. Overall it is very much worth the price for getting a "50" inch!
