Question about Protron PLTV-32 Television

1 Answer

Blackout, High Pitch Squeel

I've had a Protron 32" LCD HD TV for 2 months now. About a month ago it started acting up. It will all of a sudden emit a loud popping noise and then one of several things happens: it usually freezes the picture and then goes black or blue, or it then emits a piercing, high pitched sound and then freezes the picture and then goes black or it just goes black. In each circumstance the green light on the front of the tv which indicates that it is active turns to red which means the power is in sleep mode. At this point the only way to get it going again is to turn it off completey via the back side power button, essentially resetting it, because the remote ceases to function until you do. It occurs multiple times in a row but randomly. It will be fine for a week or two then occur several times in a few days. Protron tried to blame it on the cable system (Comcast). Is this a power supply problem? Has anyone else experienced this?

Re: Blackout, High Pitch Squeel

Funny to see this because this is exactly what is happening to my 32 inch TV and I was researching to see if some one else had this problem and right away I find this, I've had my set for over a year now, and I have no solution at this time, but I will continue to research this, I figured that Protron would blame the cable company,that's what company's with crappy products usually do. Blame someone else.

Here's the only place I know that sells them:

It seem to be the #1 common problem with the Protron TV.
It maybe cheaper to find someone to fix the power supply, but if you get it from LCDPAYLESS, make sure it has some type of warranty on it. I hate to see anyone pay $130 and it only last a couple of months.

hello, the first thing to do is to check the power supply, meaning check the main fuse and burned components,if do not have any electronics repair skills call the repairman, but first carefully open the set and check the all the fuses.

HD compatibility - Not

You need to nail down where the problem is by finding another source of 1080i signal and prove if it is the TV or not, then hold Proton's feet to the fire if it is.
