Question about Protron PLTV3250 32 in. LCD Television
No power to my Protron PLTV 3250. What can I do to fix this.
My Protron PLTV - 3250 just went out yesterday. By this I mean it turned on and went out in a few minutes. I left it off and today it completely died. I opened it up because I always think I can repair things. So what I found is a burn mark on the curcuit board of the power supply which is located inside the tv. On the other side of the burn mark is a (zener diode), this diode is burned out and therefore the power supply is not working. I am going to Radio Shack tomorrow Monday Aug. 31, 2009. The diode is very tiny but should be easy to replace with a sauder gun because this diode has place holders to hold the tiny diode in. If this does not work at the top of this page is a link that says power supplies for your tv for sale. I am going to check it out. Anyway just so you all who know about computers= the tv power supply is similar to the power supply on a computer. Just like a computer power supply comes in a case that you install into your computer and then you just connect the connectors to your motherboard and drives. Well in the tv the power supply is stand alone also, you can disconnect the wire connections in the tv and replace the power supply. If you notice the power cable to your tv is the same as a computer power cable, so the power supply in the tv is much the same as a computer power supply. I hope this helps you.

Standard RCA cables are fine to connect both units. If home theater and tv has Component Video (Green-Red-Blue) connections, you can get better video result.

Hi, most protons have power supply problems, the power supply is no longer available, but it can either be mailed in to a company called PTS to be rebuilt or you can attempt a component level repair yourself.
Most non technical people can not disassemble and solder there TV.
If you are comfortable soldering, you can open the TV and view the power supply (upper center section) look for any bulging capacitors (cylinder looking small components) sometimes replacing the swollen caps will fix your Proton, If any parts look burnt you will need to send the board to PTS to get it rebuilt , should cost around $100.
PTScorp.com can be found online here or bring the TV to a local servicer that agrees on a flat rate price to fix it

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.
