    the television was on during the night and went out. The red light will not come on. It is not a cable problem because the clock from the cable bos still works. the tv is only about two years.

    Mine just now went out too! I was watching the tv and the pic started going out and then zing, nothing. There is no power light, green or red, nothing. Like yours mine is not quite 2 years old. I sure hope someone has a fix for this.

    my pltv-32c is 38 months old, on two occasions during that time when I tried to turn it on there was nothing, no red light etc. In both cases unplugging it for five minutes and then plugging it back it fixed it.

    I am probably on borrowed time now but we are watching it now as I type this.

    I just lost my 2nd tv (yup...bought them through shopNBC in 10/2006) to the same problem - just went black/no sound/no picture/no power. Tried running an extension cord to a different outlet, just to be sure. Mine are model PLTV3250 (no external transformer or a/c adapter). If there is anyone that can fix these, they would make a good living! Any assistance is greatly appreciated! Thanks!

I got one from that guy on e-bay 10.00 off like the other guy, after making offers all day, same thing and shipping, paid around 136.00+20.00 to fixya, to find the guy I think i got fixed do they call that fixed now days? we will see when it gets here, i guess its better than a new 32'' tv, hope it works, it does not look the same, Why is he on e-bay if he does not deal a little bit!

Tv will not turn on


You lost the standby 5vdc power supply and may be a lot of bad caps, very common problem with this model.
Check the power supply; look for bad caps with leaking/bulging tops, check to see if you have standby +5vdc at the power supply connector, the front red indicator will not be on if you do not have this +5vdc standby voltage due to shorted out Q7 and ZD4.

Tv shut off


Common failure in this TV is the caps in the power supply are bad and also failed 5VDC standby supply stops working (if you do not see red indicator light on the front panel, the it is bad), and backlight inverter bd.

We have been having problems with my Protron


Look at the power supply first since it is easier to get to, look for burnt parts, bad capacitors, etc.

Protron lcd tv getting no power


I have the same problem. I am told that I need a new power supply (adaptor) but from what I am reading on the Net, they are very rare and TV repairman told me he cannot find the part. I heard that Protron is out of business.

Protron pltv3250 32 in. lcd, no power, no lights


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.

No Picture (power indicator does not light up)


I have a Protron 37: LCD TV. The power indicator does not change to green (the red light is showing) and the TV will not turn on, either by remote or using the power button on the TV. The TV is about a year and a half old. Can you please help me?

Thanks
