This is the same problem I see concerning my 32 inch Proscan tv. It stopped turning on after 17 months. At first it would turn on every 3rd or 4th try after unplugging, replugging and hitting the on button on the tv. It has since progressed to a 10 minute operation and about 20-25 attempts. The remote will not work anymore to turn it on but will change channels and shut the thing off after it has finally turned on. I am not a big tv watcher and the thing looks new. After reading about the cost of replacing parts with no guarantee it will ever be fixed I guess just dumping it is the only way to save myself more grief. It is a shame these products are such junk.
