Question about Protron PLTV-37 37 in. LCD Television

1 Answer

Menu feature on pltv-3750 is not functioning on dtv source.

I just received the tv today and hooked up the coaxial cable to the atsc first and attempted to program channels and it went through and got to 125 froze for second and then said saving and never changed. So i shut the tv off and then went back and there were no channels saved and the screen says no signal and now the menu function doesnt operate via the remote or button on tv itself, It works on all other functions (regular tv, hdmi,etc.) so now i cant attempt to program it again. the tv and program feature works on the regular ntsc source but i would like to recieve the hd programming, any help you can suggest would be greatly appreciated.

ATSC is not a cable tuner, it is for antenna only. Qam tuner is for HD cable. If you dont have a QAM tuner you need a cable box.

I am getting a "no signal" on the blue screen on DTV mode of my Protron PLTV-3750 LCD. It has worked until I moved it to a different room. The signal is good on other tv. Anything I can do?


First make sure you have your cables connected securely, then try to move your antenna around and rescan your channels everytime you move the antenna.

After the DTV switch, should I be placing the cable cord into the dtv output to receive all the DTV channels? Protron PLTV 3250 is the set I have and it doesn't seem to get the DTV channels like my other...


Your question is confusing. If you have cable, you don't need a DTV converter box.

If your cable company has switched to digital cable, they will provide you a box, and the cable should go from the wall into the box, then into your TV.

If you don't have cable but instead rely on an antenna, then the wire will go from the antenna into the DTV box, then from the DTV box into the back of the TV. If you're using a regular coaxial cable to go from the DTV box into the television, the TV should be set to channel 3. If you're using the red-yellow-white RCA wires between the DTV box and the television, the TV must be tuned to "Aux," "Line In," "Input Select," or whatever it's labeled on your particular set.

Built in tuner not working since digital transition


I do not know if you will get this message but if you do. Here goes. The protron PLTV3250 does indeed have a digital tuner that can be used with an over the air antenna. You need to push "source" on the remote until DTV is selected. With this selected and your coaxial cable from your antenna hooked up to the digital connector (not analog) on the back of this tv you can then press Menu and you will see a totally different looking menu that you are probably not used to seeing and then from there you can do an auto scan for the digital channels and it works great. I have rabbit ears hooked up to this Protron PLTV3250 and this has a beautiful picture. Far better than the picture I get from just the standard digital Directv receiver. You do not need a seperate digital tuner box to use with this TV. It does indeed have an ATSC digital tuner and it works great. You probably are selecting Source "TV" in the menu and that is not what you select for this TV to use the Digital Tuner. You need to select DTV from the source menu. Good luck and please let me know if you already knew this or if this helped you. Thanks, Tom

Protron 42'' LCD TV


If you need to connect to DTV,you must have RCA cable(video/audio cable,could be component video cable and audio left and right!) Also,in order to have that connect it,you need to have a cable box,directv or dishnetwork box that got the component video output. If you are connecting the coaxial to the TV,you are not going to have any signal in the DTV connection,cause there is anything connect it to there!
