Question about Protron PLTV-32 Television

1 Answer

The power won't stay on.

Last year our 32" Protron TV started with the black Verticle lines. My husband just ignored the problem. Today, 9/7/08 the TV will not stay on and get a picture. The red light is on indicting power but when hit the power on button the green light goes on and about 5 seconds later it goes off again.
Any ideas?

Protron filed banruptcy so that they wont be responsible for selling you a lemon, they covered their asses, theres no solution to their tv or electronic problems, they are a bootlegged company, dont bother calling customer service they are some people in india telling you the same thing every time you call, in other words , they dont even know who protron is, they are paid to say whatever and probably paid one dollar an hour, my tv never worked i bought it from national wholesale liquidators and i suggest no one ever buys anything from this store either, they are a rip off! i lost $900. and sad to say so did everyone else that invested money in protrn/sprectroniq

More likely the power supply module is dead.
Please read my guide if you want to do more in-depth troubleshooting.

Or just make sure to use caps with low ESR, 105c, high ripple current, long life rating such as PANASONIC FM or FC series.

You will have to have the set checked by someone to confirm this,
but most likely there is a problem with the TVs internal power supply.

Protron 32"

Hello, I have a Protron 32 in. TV also. After about a month I saw a few lines verticle on the screen. I called Protron and they were very nice and said thet would send me instructions and a pick up notice for FedX. I received it in about a week. I packaged the tv up and sent it to them. I started calling after about a month and they stated they were waiting for the part to come in to fix it. This went on for about 4 months with me call in every week. Eack time thay would tell me it was going to be ship to me with in 2 weeks. After 4 months I called and was very vocal and stated that if I did not have my tv in 7 days and this was on Wednesday I was going to get on my PC and anybody that did any kind of search on tv's, Protron, Spectrum would know about my problems and how sorry the company was and hung up. The folling Monday I recieved a new tv and it was the newer mdl.I also told them I did not want a repaired tv that i had paid for a new one and would not settle for a repaired one. I have not had and trouble with this tv and it is about a year old. I hope you may be able to do the same thing.
