Power supply board
# L09039912400134      MIP 500HW

Do you have any idea where I can purchase this part and any idea of the cost??

Answer
Here is one for $85!

This company

http://www.home-audio-fidelity.com/tag/supply-unit-elastic

had one listed but I don't see it now.

Here is  a used one for $30 on eBay:

Maybe there are others.  Unfortunately, sometimes there are slightly different models for each set so you should carefully check the exact part number listed on the board to make sure the replacement is the same number. The number you gave 'L09039912400134' does not look like the board number but if it is, I didn't find anything with that part number listed.  You might contact directly to the parties listed above and get their confirmation before purchasing.

Best wishes.  I cannot give you a very high confidence on the reliability of Proscan models.  They are not a good investment for repairs once they start falling apart  - in my opinion.
