Question about Protron PLTV-32 Television

Loud sound from tv

We just had our Protron 32" LCD make this loud buzzing/crackling sound, the thing is the volume is all the way down? Is there some internal component that is faulty? Do I need to buy a new one rather than fix it? Please help!

It could be the inverter board going bad. The inverter board is what makes the back lights come on and has transformers on it that have high voltage. any time you have a noise like a buzzing or arcing you should have it checked

It sounds like you've done quite a bit of troubleshooting, which I applaud you for doing. Have you tried power cycling the TV? Simply turn off the TV, unplug it (and any components connected to it), then plug it back in and turn it on after a minute. See if this corrects the issue. If it doesn't, then I would recommend calling our Product Support team to schedule repairs at:

Humming sound


Samsung states - A buzzing sound from your plasma TV is normal. It is caused by the electrical charges used to create the images on the screen. The buzzing, however, should not be so loud that you can hear it when the volume on the TV is set at normal levels.It is also important to determine the type of buzzing sound. A sound like a ground hum is completely normal. This buzzing can originate near the power cord connection or from the SMPS board position on the upper back of the TV. The buzz will be more audible as contrast increases on the screen, most notably when displaying an all white screen. If the buzzing sound is loud, you may have the Contrast set too high. Lower the contrast to reduce or eliminate the buzzing.You may also have loud buzzing if the rear of your Plasma TV is too close to a wall or other hard surface. Try moving your TV away from the wall until the buzzing is minimized. [1]
If the buzzing is at a higher frequency and resembles a crackling sound (like the sound of Velcro being pulled apart), and originates from the upper middle back of the TV, you likely have a failing SMPS board. Place a support call with Samsung to have the SMPS board replaced.FP-T5084 Have a known buzzing problem with a very simple fix.If the buzzing is coming from the left or right sides of the rear and the volume can be changed by pressing lightly on those locations, you are probably hearing the vibration of the grounding springs on the back panel. Call Samsung (or whoever) and have a technician confirm the problem. The easiest fix is to insulate the offending spring by applying some felt tape.

Luckinfutz, My Protron 32in LCD tv speakers crackle and even when the volume is all the way down we get this loud hum for about 5 seconds. I think the speakers are shot and are on their way out. I read...


Yes, changing the audio board might solve your problems. But the loud hum is the generated by either a bad connection (open the case and check all of them) or a bad filtering of the power (check the capacitors on the power board) so try fixing it first.

Loud buzzing noise on vizio tv


It sound like you may have sound processor problem which is part of the main board, I would also look at the 12vdc from power supply to make sure it is clean DC.

Hi!

I have seen this before in a lcd tv I worked on! My problem was some bad caps (capacitors) on the power supply board. They will look bulged on the top an may be a little leaky (brownish stain). But also check the signal board (rca s-video etc... inputs). My thought in this was a bad cap was producing a harmonic, causing the speakers to squeal! Good luck, I hope this is helpful!

Continuous crackling from TV speakers


I'm sure you have figured this one out. TV itself is causing the problems.
The circuit board that produces the audio signal seems to be the problem.
Before you call the repairman, go to the web site Shopjimmy.com just to get an idea of what the parts will cost. That way he doesn't rip you off.

I hope I answered your question correctly. Please rate me. :)
