    When my Protron does not come on I just unplug it for a few minutes and It seems to reset itself. Call me lucky but who knows how long this will last.

    The tv would only turn on for literally 2 seconds then .... off. Tried troubleshooting by unplugging and plugging it back on; still nothing. HELP!

    I have the same problem. I changed the remote control battery and the TV will only come on after pressing the remote control button 7 to 8 times.

    MY PROTRON IS ONLY THREE YEARS OLD. I HIT THE POWER BUTTON ON THE SET AND IT WON'T COME ON. I CAN TURN IT ON WITH THE REMOTE ONLY. THEN I GET A WEAK SIGNAL AND CAN BARELY SHUFFLE THROUGH CHANNELS.

    ok so it's been a long time since someone updated a post on here, i was just gifted a protron tv witha bad power supply board just like so many others i've seen online with "please help me" well here's my free fix for it if it works great, but it's NOT going to work for everyone... that said... i took the infamous 5v tv turn on wire and jumped it to the +5 volt rail that runs on the same connector at the opposite end. It made a short click of some sort( i had the stereo on so i didn't exactly hear the 15 times i recreated the incident). anyhow.. i jumped the rail 2 times for 3 seconds each.. my light turned red, i hit the power and the tv is what i'm still 3 hours later typing to you all on now so i'd say it works... so i switched off the power switch on the back, unplugged it for a full minute and reconnected it and it didn't work again, i jumped it again and it worked again... in the end i ran a manual switch to the top of the tv that "fix's" the tv when it loses power due to storms, moving, whatever. it's worked about 50 times so far... i don't know how long it'll keep working but hey, for free and about 1 1/2 hours of time inspecting and taking the tv apart, i'd say not bad. hope this helps one many or all... good luck!

I have a Protron 32" LCD. My power supply crapped out as so many others have. There are several web sites that have the same complaints about the Protron LCD TV. Most of them refer to a bad power supply. A replacement power supply is almost impossible to get. However, I found that some people had their power supply repaired by a man in California. They even posted a link to his email address. I live in New york, but I figured, what else have I got to lose? If this doesn't work, I need a new TV anyway! His name is Dave Simpson and he responded to my email the next day. I shipped my power supply to him, and he fixed it! I got it back, plugged it in, turned on the television just in time to see my football team get destroyed! The whole process took less than a week! The best thing about this is that the cost of the repair was quite reasonable! This is especially true when you think of how much a new television would cost you! He even takes Paypal! His email address is:

I hope this helps!

I have the same problem but learned how to work with it. When I first go to cut the tv on nothing happens the power light turns green then yellow but the screen does nothing. I kept pushing the power button on and off till I got the screen to come on but it still wouldn't say the famous "powering on please wait" so I left the tv on for about 5 min and boom it cuts on. So I guess once the screen is on u have to let warm up weird?? Huh reminds me of my monte Carlo

Protron pltv 32 tv


funny that no one's been able to help you, because I accidentally discovered that the power supply cord for my computer worked for my Protron PLTV-32C lcd...  not sure if your model is different in someway, but you may want to try the cord from your own PC first, 
and if it works.

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.
