“Proline 28N1 ”

Written on: 25/10/2010

Proline 28N1

I'm amazed so many people can use the net to complain about this tv, but cannot use the net to find the free fix, rather than spend £49 on a call out.

The reason the screen 'compresses' on the sides is that the CRT controller chip is set for a smaller model, and when it gets reset by a power surge or similar, it comes back on as a 24" picture on a 28" screen.

I gave this TV to my mum after I bought my 42" Plasma, and I have showed her how to fix it, and she is in her 70's!

Ok… Read Full Review

“I bought my Proline 28N1 Television in December 2000....”

Written on: 25/04/2004 by CDA (1 review written)

I bought my Proline 28N1 Television in December 2000. After just under 8 months the edges of the screen compressed by about 4 inches to give it a sort of vertical letterbox effect. Still under guarantee, so Comet engineer came out to perform a secret combination of button pushing on the TV & remote and problem solved. Ten days later the same problem occurred. Cue second engineer and a similar mysterious combination of button pushing.
A month or so later and screen again compressed from the… Read Full Review

My proline 28n1 broke down 3 months after warranty ran out and the after sales service is not very good. They want £49.99 just to come plus parts! I feel that this is the first in a long line of breakdowns and so I will quit while I'm ahead and put it out with the rubbish today! I WOULD NOT RECOMMEND PROLINE TELEVISIONS!… Read Full Review

Can't help thinking that I would have pushed the manufacturer to put the TV right only being 3 weeks out of warranty. A quick mention of the Sale of Goods Act normally does the trick.

I've had same recurring problem on my model and the trick is to hold in the middle button underneath the panel on the front of the telly whilst pushing the 'ON' button. You then have three seconds in which to push the 'standby' button on remote (the central red button). That puts the screen into it's factory settings mode. Scroll down on remote to 'EW' which is the width setting and press 'right' on you remote to increase the width of the screen. Once desired width has been reached settings are stored by pressing the 'yellow' key on the remote.

I endorse the comments about the 28N1 although I got 4 months after the warranty! Comet were most unhelpful.

Written on: 18/07/2002 by Steve. (1 review written)

The Proline 28n1 TV offers good picture and sound quality for the price. Good for DVDs-I tend to use the zoom mode to increase picture height as widescreen pictures appear too short. AV inputs (ie SCART) gives much better picture quality than the aerial. This would normally indicate a poor aerial system but it was OK with my old Goodmans 2195T. The sound quality is good, particularly with treble at full and cinema effect on, but would probably be much better with external speakers. Finish is a… Read Full Review

Well i'm happy with mine. On/off did fail but was repaired promptly, was lucky as was just before 12 mths ran out. Got it for £185 but manual missing. Now find i can't put DV camera into it or my video. Any ideas, got a scart inputbut i'm lost.

"filter out macrovision"...you must be mistaken. If AV2 can be set to out then it will be analog and hence still have the macrovision encoded onto the signal. No television exists that actively removes macrovision (illegal anyway). Have a look for "timebase correctors" on the web to see what I mean.

<br>Still a very good value telly, if it's reliable!
