Question about Protron PLTV-32 Television

Open Question

We have a Dish dual receiver and we have the Protron 32 TV connected to the 2nd hook-up. There is a coax cable for the connection and I have that connected to the top cable hook-up. I get nothing but a blue screen and a message saying no signal. I've gone to the menu and tried to update the info but nothing seems to work. We had another TV hooked to this cable and it worked fine and we had the Protron hooked into the same receiver using HDMI and it worked. Suggestions

Call Sony on the 800 number. I had that problem and I had to set the HDMI to a lower setting on the ps3. Also remember that all HDMI cables are not equal. If that cable is longer than 20 feet then you could have a weak signal problem.

You might be running into a problem if you haven't changed the video settings on the PS3 to send digital video. Try that first.

SOURCE: protron hdmi pltv3250 32 lcd tv does not turn on

Hey bro, I seen online a buncha people keep saying its a power supply thing that you wont find cheap online.

Do this for me:
1 Lay the TV on its face on a table with towels layed down.
2 Unscrew all the screws you can find.
3 When you take the back off you will fine a plug still plugged into the backing so unplug that.
4 Now you will see metal covers covering the guts or what have you. You wanna take the cover off the one on the left it should be the smaller of the two covers like 6in by 5 in.
5 Now look at the capacitors, some are covered up by these metal brackets. Remove the smaller of the 2 brackets to see all of em.
6 Ok back to the capacitors, if you're unsure of what capacitors are, they are cylinder in shape and standing straight up n down, theres black ones, purple ones and like a green one sittin there.
7 Notice how some of these capacitors are not flat on the top, they kinda look rounded?
8 Unplug everything plugged into the chip board and take it to radio shack and get the capacitors you need along with a soldering iron, or you can write down how many uf's and voltages they are and just bring your paper there.
9 You really should get the right uF its probably (1) 820uF 35v (2) 680uF 25v (1) 220uF 25v and (1) 220uF 10v.
10 Crappy thing bout Radio Shack is its hard to find some of em that have the same uF and Voltage. I know you can get a higher voltage but not sure of the uF.
11 If you do get the right parts which should be around 10 bucks or less, try your luck de-soldering the bad ones and pushin these new ones thru. Its not a hard job at all.
12 Do me a favor go to youtube and type in Polaroid tv repair and the guy fixes his tv the same way except he's only got a couple bad caps. It gives you a perfect example of how to do it.

Lemme know how you make out. If it dont work, lemme know what happens. My Email is FlareSideMuzik@gmail.com

How do I hook up my satilite dish to our motor home?


Most TVs don't have a built-in satellite receiver. You'll need to buy and install a suitable satellite receiver box for the signals that your dish is capable of receiving. The dish connects to the satellite receiver. Then the sat receiver connects to the TV via either AV cables or HDMI. Hope this helps.

Hello! I haven't a problem Yet! I am contemplating buying a used "owned" Dish single tuner PVR 508 and adding it to my current configuration. My home is 2 years old and wired for cable in 5...


Hello, this Luke. Hooking the 508 to any TV is just like hooking a DVD to TV. Just used whichever cable available to you. e.g. RCA, coax. But if you want to have Satellite programming to that receiver, that would be a different thing. You will have to call Dish to add that receiver to your account with them. They will verify that receiver if it is registered to an account with debt and add it to your account if it is clear. They might need to send an installer to hook it up. Let me know if this help.

Sylvania tv lc220sl1 trying to hook up with dish network and tv setup says (autoscab) receiving no channels or no signal.


We would be happy to help get your picture back. The first thing we want to ensure is that all connected equipment is on.Check what type of cable is used to connect the TV to the receiver. If you areusing a Coax Cable to connect the receiver to TV1, check the receiver'sback panel for the output name. If your receiver has a "TV CH 3/4Out" (non-ViP Receiver): Tune TV to channel 3 or channel 4, backif it is labeled "Home Distribution" (ViP Receiver): Tune TVto channel 62 or 75. If using non-Coax (RCA, Component, orHDMI) to connect receiver to TV1, cycle through the inputs until pictureappears; Most TVs have a "TV/Video", "Input", or"Source" button. We want to ensure that the TV and the receiverare connected properly, please visit this link to for more information:http://www.dishnetwork.com/SupportSection/setup-receiver-totv. Once we havemade sure everything is connected properly, unplug receiver for 10 seconds thenplug it back in, this will reset the receiver. If we are still not getting apicture connect another component (VCR, DVD Player, etc.) to the same TV, usingsame cable, same input, and same channel to see if it works. If you get apicture with the other component give us a call at 1-800-333-DISH (3474) forsome additional troubleshooting. If it doesn't work with the other componentthen replace the cable that was used.

We hope these steps resolve the issue. We want to thank you for being a valuedDISH Network customer!

Unhooked all lines in back of tv cant remember to rehook up have2


granmabj,

There are common connections to each receiver but there are unique connections also depending on the receiver. Solo receivers have a coax cable coming from the Dish outside connected to Satellite In. Duo receivers and DVR HD receivers have the coax cable that comes from the dish outside that connects to Satellite 1 and Satellite 2 using a splitter. There is also a cable (coax, RCA (yellow, white, red) or component (green, blue, red - video, white, red - audio) or an HDMI if HD) connected from the receiver to the TV 1. For a duo receiver TV 2 may be backfed on the cable coming from the dish outside using diplexers. This may sound confusing but you can call 1-800-333-3474 for assistance.

I can't get channel 3 to show satellite channels. They only show up on Video 3. I need channel 3 to work for surround sound. I checked wiring diagram and it looks like everything is hooked up the way it...


The only way this will show on channel three is to have the receiver connected via coax to the TV and since it is displaying on Video 3 it either is not or it is connected in more than one manner and the Coax port on either the receiver ot TV may be bad.

Lets just ensure that tha coax from the back of the receiver is attached to the CH3-4 out port and then run to the back of the TV. If the TV has a dual coax input it will need to be connected to the analog or antenna port.

If the receiver does not have a coax port for TV1 you can get an rf modulator to facillitate this conection.

If all else fails try taking the red and white cables that are connected to the TV from the receiver and connecting it to the surround directly.

I hope this assists you.

Thanks for using Fix Ya and being a valued Dish Network customer.

LCD TV IS CONNECTED TO CABLE USING SATELITE. CABLE IS RUN APPROX 150 FT FROM SAT DISH TO TV. RECEPTION IS VERY GRAINY,,,IS IT THE LENGTH OF CABLE? THE CABLE IS 100FT CONNECTED TO 50FT CONNECTED TO TV....


Is the satellite receiver HD or standard?
If it is standard you should hook up the box to the tv via RCA cables (Yellow/Red/White) and this will help with the picture quality.

If it is a HD receiver then hook up the box to the tv using a component video cable and this will drastically change the quality of the picture.

Using a coax cable to attach from the box to the tv essentially is connecting an analog signal to the tv and this will produce a lower quality picture...

Good Luck!!

How do i use the ant. passthrough on tv2 in dual mode w/ dish dvr625


ANT. passthrough for an ant. connected to your 625 receiver will only work on tv 1. The only way to do this is to RF modulate your tv 2 coax to an RCA and hook the RcA cable to your tv2. then use another ant. to connect coax allowing you to pick up dish programing on an input and then going to the channels to enjoy local over the air programming.

Philips flat tv. Can't get it to hook up to dish network. The room where the tv is there isn't a dish box. We have to watch what is on in the other room. It only has one coax cable to hook up. Don't know...


I should be channel 3 or 4. This assumes that this coax cable is coming out as a TV R.F. connection of a Dish Network Box (Satellite Receiver) intended for direct connection to an old fashioned NTSC (channels 2-13, 14-83, possibly even has cable channels depending on how old?) TV.

If this coax is the output of a coax going directly to the Satellite Dish or through what might might look to you like some kind of fancy splitter (called a Multi-Switch) the you WOULD NOT want to hook that to your old NTSC tv. The frequency is too high ... etc. etc... you would need Dish Box (as you call it) a.k.a. a Satellite receiver - with a good and active satellite card from your provider.

32" protron tv


an output like ( HDMI ) would be on a dish reciever , and a hdmi input on a tv would plug into that output on the dish reciever
Is HDMI what you are trying to connect? then you would need an HDMI cable
HDTV = High Definition television , which means that you have a built in digital tuner that will pick up the digital and high definition broadcast channels with an antenna connected to the tv
