Question about Protron PLTV-32 Television

1 Answer

Faint shadows on screen that aren't burnt images

For about a month there have been these faint grayish I don't even know what to call them, it actually kind of looks like a lot of dust but there isn't any on the tv and I know that it isn't a burnt image. There's two of them coming from the top of the screen, I suppose it would be like a film of fabric inside the screen that ripped in a couple parts but there's nothing wrong with the screen. Can anyone help?

    I have the same problem, I noticed it about 3 months ago. I have the PLTV-3750 and its on the top right side of the screen. It's not always there, just depends on the colors being displayed.I think it has to do with the LCD gone bad.

    I also have the same problem. The left side of the screen looks like roller marks from the old ink printers, and the right side looks like dirt sliding down the pictures. The color of the picture determines how much of it is seen. I do hope there is a solution!

I three have the same problem... like a line going down the screen. Did you purchase yours from Sears? I understand there is a law suit against Sears but cannot find out any info if its includes quality of the product or were there any defects? Mines is getting worst and the warrantee is over

Black screen

If its LCD get the room very very dark and turn on--with a flashlight near the screen look closely at the screen to see if you see a very faint image of the picture or not---Most LCD flatscreen's (not Plasma) use what is called a back light to light the screen--light source.

If a faint picture can be seen that way the light is not on.

Sound on but no picture

Is the screen pitch black or a blue/grayish ? Dim the lights in the room, and shine a bright flash light on the panel. Turn on the set, if you see a faint picture, you have a backlight issue

Picture goes black but still has sound

Use a strong light next to the screen and look for a faint image on the screen. If you see a faint picture, your backlight has a problem. Service shop time. Not a simple fix.

TV screen went negative. Brand new TV

I would use the warranty for this problem. The part that need to be replaced can be somewhat expensive.
With the credit card statement, you can use that as a receipt.

Screen has faint "water mark" looking images on both sides of picture

Then the only possibilitiy at this point is the LCD panel having some kind of defect in it. Since you flipped the picture and no change it is a permanent mark or failure. Check to see if you have any warranty left as this will be an expensive part if needed. They do list a diffusion sheet part number PSHEP0288CEZZ that will probably be the first layer of the screen assembly.
