    My stupid PROTRON tv won't turn on. I got it for christmas in Dec 2006. We noticed some weird things like when using the VHS tapes the picture would go blue, but we would just unplug and replug the red cable-----anyway it wasn't anything we were worried about. BUT now out tv won't turn on. The light turns green for a second than turn red again. I hate this tv.

    Well, I was having the problem of it not turning on but it eventually did. Tonight I have a bar across a blue screen that says "No signal". I called Dish Network but they said that the trouble is with the TV. It's a hand me down so I don't have a remote or manual. Can anyone help?

When your TV doesn't turn on like and it automatically shuts off like that it is because it is trying to protect the circuitry from shorting itself much like a blow dryer or any bathroom appliance. Something else is bad and it is trying to protect everything else.

I had the same problem and it was the display module that was bad and it kept shutting off due to that reason. Have a technician look at it.

2 (at least) main possible problems. 1) media box( place where
you connect ant, cable hdmi) which controls on/off is bad. If that is the case, there's nothing you can do. Protron doesn't sell
replacement parts for their tv's.The other(main) possibility
is that there is a problem in the power supply.Only a technician can answer that question for you.If it is a power supply problem, the tech may be able to rebuild it for you.

I have a Panasonic TH-42PX50u that suddenly is stuck on one channel and no volume control either. Same whether using remote or on TV. Only turns on and off no other control.

Try changing the input device to something you are sure, works such as a DVD player. Look for any loose contacts in RC jacks/sockets/Cable. Look for jammed buttons on remote and/or on control panel. Try removing the batteries from remote and operating from the control panel of TV. If these are ok, Switch off TV manually, switch off power, remove plug and retry after 48 hours. If problem persists, please refer it to a qualified service technician.

My RCA Truflat T.V won't turn on and the FPA lock is turned on, I have the original remote. what should i do?

TV won't turn on • Press the TV button. Make sure the TV is plugged in.• Check the wall receptacle (or extension cord) to make sure it is "live" by plugging in something else.• Something might be wrong with your remote control. Press the POWER button on the front of the TV. If the TV turns on, check the remote control solutions on page 26.• The front panel controls may be locked (disabled). Use the remote control to unlock the front panel controls by selecting the Lock Fr. Panel in the PARENTAL CONTROL menu and press OK (box won't have check mark).Buttons don't work
• If you're using the remote control, press the TV button first to make sure the remote is in TV mode.• The front panel controls may be locked (disabled). Use the remote control to unlock the front panel controls by selecting the Lock Fr. Panel in the PARENTAL CONTROL menu and press OK (box won't have check mark).• Unplug the TV for two minutes and then plug it back in. Turn the TV on and try again.TV turns off unexpectedly • Sleep timer might have been activated. Go to page 24 for instructions.• KidPass might have been activated. Go to page 21 for instructions.• Wake-Up timer turned on the TV and no remote or front panel buttons were pressed for two hours.• Electronic protection circuit may have been activated because of a power surge. Wait 30 seconds and then
turn on again. If this happens frequently, the voltage in your house may be abnormally high or low.
• Unplug TV. Wait five minutes. Plug it in again.

Remote not turning the Zenith Plasma Display Panel TV on/off.

the remotes are usually multi function .. that is, they can control more than just the TV .. make sure TV mode is selected ... if its in VCR mode or Cable or whatever then it wont control the TV .. if its a programmable remote then it may have lost its program and would have to be set up again ... if its the original that came with the tv then that shouldnt happen . once in a while but not often i see a bad LED (at the tip of the remote) ... those are infra red so you cant see the light beam but a digital camera can .. point the remote at the digital camera and you should see the LED flashing in the cameras viewer when a button on the remote is pushed ...
