Re: Girociclo I'll pay to have my ac adaptor fixed!!!!!1

Hi all.  As the rest of you, the power adapater to my Protron (same model above) gave out, and as indicated in this and other blogs on this site, was told by the company to call back in a few weeks when they "should" have more in stock. 

While it's a bit more pricey, I found a company by going on e-bay "lcdpayless" by typing in the model No. of the adapter.  They make an "equivalent," listed as 99% favorable reviews, that is better and should last longer.  Best thing, it shipped within 24 hours.  If you are like me and don't care to wait months before Protron (they don't take orders) may have one or two more in stock, give it a shot!

Re: Girociclo I'll pay to have my ac adaptor fixed!!!!!1

Hi, has anyone actually received the ac adapter, I have called everyday for almost 3 wks, I called again today, and was told they received ac adapters, but it was not for the pltv32, I am now going to try and have the adapter fixed, has anyone tried that? and if so did it work?  I guess I should feel blessed, I have had the tv almost 3 years without any problem, but I can not see throwing out a tv when it works fine with the exception of 1 ill made external part. tina

Are you still searching for the AC Adaptor? Do you have a phone number where I can order this AC Adaptor from Protro? My 32inch Protron LCD won't come on and I have a strong feeting it is the AC Adaptor. I also took it to a tech but he was unable to fix it.

Re: Girociclo I'll pay to have my ac adaptor fixed!!!!!1

Protron said that I would have a new adapter(090-02180-13) in 2 weeks. My tv was under warranty but if it wouldn't have been they said you could order an adapter for $79.00. My adapter is over heating and I have placed a small fan blowing into it and so far it has kept it cool and the tv has not shut off automatically as of yet.

Adaptor is not working

Hi I am Vortash .. most likely if you go along to your local Radioshack , Maplins or any other Electronics outlet and take your old Adaptor with you they will be able to supply you with an equivalent based on the Voltage and amperage and polarity information on the original adaptor specs label .. Regards Vortash

1 Take the old power cord, as a sample, to any of the electronics shop in your area or nearby. Make sure that the new one has the same voltage and ampere ratings as the old one. 2 You can also contact the retailer from where you purchased the TV 3 You can also go online and get the power cord from stores like Best Buy, Circuitcity,Radioshack,,walmart etc

Ac adaptor on my 32 Protron inch LCD TV no longer work

What is the current output of the adaptor? If it is AC and you use only the 12v to 3v it is ok. But if the current output of the adaptor is DC and you use both 24v to 6v and 12v to 3v there is some danger if use the new one. Remember that DC current have polarity.

Need AC Adaptor

This model can be sucessfully refurbished, we charge 125. in our shop. The manufacturer uses very cheap components that "bake" out.
I havn't seen any decent replacement. Keep in mind..this power supply has 2 outputs. I believe some pple try to replace it with a single output replacement because the connector to the lcd is the same connector.

AC ADAPTOR 090-02180-I3

Here's the only place I know that sells them:

It seem to be the #1 common problem with the Protron TV.
It maybe cheaper to find someone to fix the power supply, but if you get it from LCDPAYLESS, make sure it has some type of warranty on it. I hate to see anyone pay $130 and it only last a couple of months.

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

To my understanding, any power adapter would serve the purpose as long as the replacement adapter have the same specification as that of the original. Pls confirm, 100-240V 50-60HZ 3.0A max. output +25 6A +12 3A. The only limiting factor is that the plug/connector should fit the jack of the TV unit.

Having said that, then most electronics store would have a generic replacement. You can even look for replacement from computer stores. Over the counter sale would not need a PayPal account, and cash sale would of course not require a credit card. It would be to your advantage to bring along the original/defective with you to compare/as per sample.

Good luck and thank you fur using FixYa.

AC adaptor for 32 inch Protron TV

It seems a lot of people are having problems with the Protron power supply. I’ve been able to repair all the ones I’ve seen so I’m confident I can fix them. I don’t sell the replacement power supply but I’ve heard about the ones on EBay. They seem to be a mishmash of two power supplies (12vdc and 24vdc) wired together with the proper connector. This should work but it just doesn’t sound very clean looking to me and they end up costing $150.

I’ve been charging between $50 and $100 to repair these power supplies. My recommendation would be to send me the power supply I’ll check it out and unless it’s unusually damaged it will cost $50 plus shipping to repair. If I can’t repair it I’ll return ship it and only charge for shipping.

I will guarantee the repair for 1 month. I don’t know what’s causing the power supplies to fail so I can’t guarantee it any longer than that. My feeling about the reason the Protron power supply stops working is two part; could be overheating due to lack of proper ventilation to the power supply; or the TVs power requirement is overdriving the power supply.

Feel free to contact me if you have any questions.
I repair these at my work, so here’s the shipping address:

Dave Simpson
23372 South Pointe Dr.
Ste. B
Laguna Hills, CA 92653

Also, I’m set up for PayPal.
