SOURCE: No power to my Protron PLTV 3250. What can I do

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.

SOURCE: My cable input has disappeared.

I also have this problem. Also, if I switch the input to PC or HDMI, it will no longer allow me to go back to AV.
AV itself doesn't quite work. When I turn on a peripheral, the TV seems to register the machine, but doesn't properly display it. For instance, if I turn on a game system, the screen switches from "No Signal" to grey. Another interesting thing is that when powered on, the intro screen that is usually blue displays as grey.
I'm chalking it up to a software issue, so my solution would be to find a way to reset it to factory settings, but I can't find any way to do so in the manual or online.

This TV uses AC ADAPETR dual outputs (12vdc and 24vdc), verify that the 24vdc is working, the 12vdc is working because the red indicator light is on, check that the power supply output first.

Hello, there is a default password, if you source is in component 2 it can't be used here are some links to the pdf file pltv types.
V-Chip Lock When turned on, blocks access to mature television and movie content, based on the MPAA and TV PG ratings selected below, unless the viewer enters a password (set below). Set Password Sets the V-Chip password. To change the password, enter the current password followed by the new password. The factory-default password is '1234'.

We own a proton pltv-32c. the image coming in is larger than our screen (or the ratio is off). Basically the top and bottom of all images are being cut off (same for TV and video watching). What to do?

Check the FORMAT option in the OSD (on screen display) menu. It may need to change.
It's on page 15 of the User's Manual.


Controls the picture format. The options are 4:3 and Full


Or you could reset the tv by using the All Reset button on the menu.

All Reset

Resets all options to factory-default settings.
See page 23 of the User's Manual.

My protron tv pltv-32c has no picture but has sound, if you change channels the picture will flash on for about 1 second


If there is sound but no picture, screen is completely dark and the picture is occasionally flashing, then the fault is likely a faulty inverter. In some case a faulty controller board or a defective PSU can cause the same problem.

I summarized the problem here:My LCD TV has sound but no picture.

I posted general procedure to test inverter, PSU and controller board on LCD here : How to test an LCD TV or monitor PSU and inverter.

If screen is not dark, but has blacklight or noise things are different. In that case check connection cables first. Parts that may be defective are main controller board, terminal circuit and tuner board.

Protron parts are available using the link below. Ensure that parts are compatible with your model before purchasing.

Absolutly A blue ray is not really tv specific but if you want HD and feel the sound and video then sure a bigger better tv would do. But you can hook a blue ray up to any tv basically remeber the ps3? Same idea.

Yes it will work and then some!! Happy buying
