    Does anyone have the wiring diagram for this power supply, and what voltages it should be, so i can use my multimeter to find out if this is the exact problem, and probably fix it.

I highly recommend the repair guy that someone emailed us. On ebay a guy wanted $142. including shipping for a new one and did not even have in stock. Refunded money after a week.

Emailed (Dave Simpson) and he emailed me back same day. I priority mailed the unit to his work addess for $11.00 on Monday and by Friday he emailed me back it was fixed and charged me $61.00. He takes paypal. The repair is good for one month but he said if does go down call him.
I have called the 909-657-2252 (Protron Group that made the Protron 32" LCD) and all I have ever heard was a recording and after multiple messages for 2 weeks they have not called me back.

I had a power 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's been working for a year now with no problems. I wish I would have tried him first!!!! If anyone is interested his email is

Here's the only place I know that sells them:

It seem to be the #1 common problem with the Protron TV.
It maybe cheaper to find someone to fix the power supply, but if you get it from LCDPAYLESS, make sure it has some type of warranty on it. I hate to see anyone pay $130 and it only last a couple of months.

Made pop noises screen flashed considerable hum then no power no sound no nothing


This model no. is known for AC power adapter problem. Pop noises, flashes of the screen is an indication of out-of-regulation condition on its power supply. If there's no LED light lit, then high chance that the fault came from the AC power adapter.
This model no. used AC power adapter with a 12 Volts output feed to the unit. You have to confirm the 12V output using the multimeter set in DC measurement.
If the 12V output voltage is not present, then you have to replaced it with new one. This model no. is already discontinued, only substitution is available online which will work also for your unit. You may inquire/call Sears hotline no. (1-888-213-5824) to confirm and order the AC Adapter.
Please let me know if the Adapter is intact to assist you further.
Please rate only if you feel I've gave you the best answer. If you have any question, please let me know.
Have a nice day!

Konka Model # KLC1508BU Mfg Dec 2005 There is no response when I turn set on - I suspect the external AC Adapter - There have been intermitttent problems in past that were resolved by...

First of all rule out if the adapter is burnt or spoiled. You can do this using a multimeter, the readings will give you the result. If you find fault in the adapter then you have to take the adapter to a electronics store and ask the salesman to give you a similar adapter with same polarity, power ratings and connector. This would workout cheaper and faster. The adapter will work fine.
Plz. don't forget to rate my suggestion.

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

To my understanding, any power adapter would serve the purpose as long as the replacement adapter have the same specification as that of the original. Pls confirm, 100-240V 50-60HZ 3.0A max. output +25 6A +12 3A. The only limiting factor is that the plug/connector should fit the jack of the TV unit.

Having said that, then most electronics store would have a generic replacement. You can even look for replacement from computer stores. Over the counter sale would not need a PayPal account, and cash sale would of course not require a credit card. It would be to your advantage to bring along the original/defective with you to compare/as per sample.

Good luck and thank you fur using FixYa.

Ac adapter

If I understand your description correctly, you have two TVs that use the same model adapter, and both adapters have failed. In that case, I would suspect a weak design, or you may have put them in some place where they were overheated or zapped by power line surges. If it appears to be a design problem, you may want to consider using a substitute.

The adapter should have the output voltage and current marked on it, for example, 12VDC 2300mA would be a 12 Volt, 2.3 Amp output. The polarity is usually marked with a diagram showing whether the center in or hole in the plug is positive or negative.

You can use an adapter with the same voltage and plug style (including polarity) and the same or greater current output. If you find one with the right voltage and current, but the wrong plug, you may be able to change the plug. Just be absolutely certain you have the wires going to the correct terminals; reversing the polarity could damage or destroy your TV. Do a proper solder job on it; simply stripping the wires and twisting them on will not be reliable.
