    I have the same problem, no power. The previous day the battery remote low came on over the TV ( I have DISH satellite). I continued to watch 'tv through out the day. I turned the set off when I was retiring for the nIght. I tried to turn the set on the next morning and I could not get the power to turn on remotely or mannually. I disconected everything and started fresh. I even tried a power cord from the same version TV of my roomate to no avail. Can anyone tell me the cost of replacing the powersupply? Is it worth the cost?

    I also have the same problem. I checked the plug, looks fine. It will not turn on manually, or with the remote. Was working fine when I left for the store, not working an hour later.

    i have a 32\liquidcrystal pltv \3250 doing the same thing tv willnot come on at all . i replaced the fuse and cord . will not work

    Mine died in the middle of watching a DVD. I took a look at the internal power supply and checked the fuse. It was good. I did notice quite a bit of discoloration due to heat on the main circuit board around one of the components. I am looking for a replacement power supply but after reading some of the posts here I wonder if it is worth the trouble and cost. Especially since the remote died sometime ago as well.

    Our Protron PLTV-3250 stopped working Jan. 2009 at less than 60 weeks old. This TV is STILL under warranty and these people refuse to do anything whatsoever, including replying to my email or phone calls!

    We added a 2-yr Warranty to the 1-yr. Warranty. That may equal 3-years but it isn't worth anything. Many times I've contacted Protron and RepairTech - and nothing - nada - ripoff - THEY ARE CROOKS - as far as we're concerned. We cannot believe that they're still selling their products!

    I've got the documents to back up everything. You can contact me here :

    I have the same problem watched tv just fine last night got up this morning turned the tv on worked for a little bit and then the picture went out and all I had was sound then I turn the tv off and now it wont turn on at all

  • wasntme01 May 10, 2009

    My Protron 32" went out a year and a half ago. As a matter of fact, it went out while I was still paying for it (credit card). It's the biggest piece of **** TV I have ever owned. As a matter of fact, I went back to the regular tube tv because it doesn't break! I should have known better than to buy from an unknown company who ends up filing for bankruptcy and leaving us all high and dry...with broken TV's. Mine has no picture and no sound. The power button lights up red when plugged in, then when you press power it turns green and you still get NOTHING! When you then try to press power to turn it off, the light stays green. I bought it from Sears and they were of no help. I got it as a christmas present. It wasn't a gift that kept on giving. What a disappointment. I figured I'd check the boards every now and then and seen if anyone found a "cure" to the problem.

  • cjingra May 15, 2009

    While watching the TV it shut off and has not come back on. Have tried different outlets and just removing and replacing the power supply. TV is about 2 1/2 years old. By the posts here I guess it is not worth trying to get Protron on the phone. I called a local repair service and they said they have fixed other Protron TV's with same problem between $40-$60. Said it is usually the internal power supply.

  • Anonymous May 16, 2009

    Same thing here. One of the components on the Power supply board burned out. Taking a closer look at it I realized it heated up so much it damaged the circuit board. Not sure if I can just replace the burned out piece or have to replace the entire board. Cheapest one on line I have found is around $100. Not sure if it is worth it.

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.

My set is plugged into a cable box. the tv will not turn on either manually or with the remote.

Plug the power cord directly into a wall power outlet, and make sure that the standby light is lit (turn it on/off manually to see if anything changes). If there isn't any light, then it's most likely broken.
If the TV works again, being plugged into the power outlet in the wall, then the problem is with the cable box (i bet you figured that out too).

Do i need a remote to operate tv

once you have front panel in the tv and this one shows power channel +- volumen +- menu then your tv has to work with those ones and the remote is a second option to do the same. With this i mean you tv has to respond and at least show menu when you push that button " if no signal (cable DVD VCR) plug in"
Then if the tv is dead you should try to repair or sent it to repair. and then get the remote control and it can be universal too.

Tv wont turn on

take your tv to technician who can check your power supply, if your power is coming on and off, than a problem is not as big. firstly let him check a ht of a supply constantly, your supply is cutting.
