Question about Protron PLTV-32 Television

1 Answer

The source keeps changing automatically

I bought Protron PLTV-32 about 2 months ago. Since I bought this TV, the source (TV, Component 1 and 2, AV1, etc...) keeps changing automatically. For example, while I am watching a DVD connected to AV1, the source automatically changes to AV2 and the screen loses the signal. I called Protron 3 times, and each time I was told to keep the source switch off for 30 minutes, but it did not solve the problem. Is there any way to fix this problem?

    TV keeps turning itself off; jumps from Component 1 (where I watch cable) to something else entirely. I tried the solution posted, turn off at set, unplug for 30 min., turn on at set, this is supposed to reset the TV to original settings (some said) but it is not a solution, the set still does its thing. Maddening. Any solutions?

    I too have the same issue, it seems when I have the tv turned on for a few hours it starts to do this, it seems to me like a heat issue. I can turn the tv off for a few hours to cool and than it works again for a while.

    I bought this TV in March 2007. It was the last one on the floor and I got it for a steal. No wonder! The source button continually switches out. While I'm watching TV it switches to DTV. It can happen 10 times in 20 min of TV watching. No telling when this is going to happen. Heat? I have no idea. Then it was happening in the morning, but not the evening so I thought there was something in that- crazy I know. I am ready to get rid of it, but I can't stand the thought of being wasteful. I'm not willing to pay $175 to mail out. I think I may buy the same TV somewhere and return the OLD one in the box and get my money back. The store will mail it to back to Protron and THEY can accept the loss as they have not been helpful in fixing this problem.

    Same problem. Source switches. But there are times when it doesn't happen in a day that is why I thought it might be some outside influence like communication eqipment. I live in the country where there are a lot of gas wells and compnaies run up and down the road all the time with all sotrs of equipment. But maybe the heat? Heat in TV or remote? Not real clear on that solution.

Have protron pltv-32cm. model lt32c1m1. how do i shut off the v-chip block? i don't have the password.


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'.

My PROTRON LCD PLTV 32 IS BLACK & DEAD


I had a pwer supply for my Protron 32 inch TV that was not working. I bought the one on ebay and it stopped working after only three weeks. Ultimately I found a guy who could fix my original power supply for a reasonable price. It been working for a year now with no problems. I wish I would have tried him first!!!! If anyone is interested his email is dave@thola.com.
