It is actually easier than most people think. Try taking it apart and see if it is something you could do. Much cheaper than a new tv.

I have a Videocon 42"


Hi,

Are all of the functions still working on the TV? If so, then the good news is that it's simply a bad screen, but the bad news is that replacement screens are impossible to come by unless you are an Authorized repair center for Proton. The only option you have is to replace the TV, or contact a shop.

From what I've found out, Protron and Spectroniq are the same company. I just visited the Protron web site and it has not been updated since 2007. I believe the company is no longer in business and will doubt if you will find a Protron Service Center. You are very lucky to find a repair shop that will attempt to work on the TV, most will not. The internet is plagued with issues with this TV. Even the cost of the screen would not be worth repair.

Let me know,if needed further assistance.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

It dropped from the table and the screen smashed. You can hear voice from it when plugged but of course no picture. Can this be repaired? If so, how much do you think it will cost? Do you think it will...


yes, the screen can be fixed, as for cost, it might be cheaper for you to just get a new tv, as screen replacements for it run around 500 bucks, just for a screen, and that's if you can even get one.

42" Protron LCD TV


Most likely the TV has a power supply related problem. It's possible that it maybe a bad capacitor or transformer on the power supply board. The most common problem are the power supply for the screen itself. Most manufactures call it a Blacklight Inverter Board. But, I can't say it's 100% the problem because I can't actually look at the tv over the internet. I can only make guesses with the symptom.

You have a few choices:

1. You can try leaving the TV unplugged for 30 - 45 minutes so the TV can discharge and reset itself.
2. If by chance the TV is still under warranty, go that route.

3. If you have some electronic experience, if you can find and purchase a Service Manual over the internet; It will help you diagnose the source of the problem and fix it by soldering in the new part. The Service Manual will give you circuit diagrams, test points, and part# lists.Usually, cost under $20. And most cases the new part cost less than $15.

4. Pay a TV shop to do the repairs. It maybe costly, but get an estimate of how much they will charge. That way you can decide if it worth repairing or replacing the whole TV.


I hope I shed some light on the subject for you.

Smashed screen


It may well be repairable since it probably isn't that old but with the plunge of flat panel prices, it may cost more to repair than replace. 
If you replace the whole set, don't buy another plasma; while they are a tad better than the LCDs of the period it was manufactured, there isn't much difference in the two systems today and the LCD display will not decay over time as the plasma is known to do.
