Question about Protron PLTV-4250 42 in. LCD Television

1 Answer

TV will suddenly go off including the red light indicator while plugged in and power going to it. There is a flip switch right where the cord plugs in. Sometimes you can just wiggle it and the light will come back on and you can turn the TV back on. Other times you have to flip this switch and then flip back again for the red light to come on. I have my visual equipment, DVD, Wii, TV, VHS plugged into an APC battery and everything else keeps running except the TV.

Hello,
You can fix this by opening the back cover of the television to check for dry soldering , if found resolder , because the likely problem is dry soldering which may cause partial contact making the television to go off.
Hope this helpout

Right now the standby 5vdc is working but it may have gone into safety shutdown due to failed power supply or shorted circuits in the backlight inverter board. You need to troubleshoot it to narrow down the causes first before buying the wrong parts.

My son plugged the wrong power cord into Sony Playstation. now when he plugs the right cord in nothing happens. Is there a fuse or something that can be replaced?


is it the power cord i assume ? make sure the little flip power switch above the power cord is in on position. and u should have steady red light on front of ps3 when unit has power on. using a different power cord should not affect it but its not recommended . most ps3 uses a standard power cable.

My dad cant hook mine up for some reason


Ok

First, Turn your T.V. on and go to the input mode on the t.v.

Second, there should be two cords in the back of your playstation3.
The power cord and the input cord. These are the two basic cords to turn your playstation on.

Once you have them plugged in, on the back of your playstation 3 there should be a power switch right above the power cord. Click it on so that the I is down and the O is up. In the front of your Playstation, a red light will appear indicating that the Playstation is ready to be turned on. Tap the red light until it turns green ( this should only be tapped once) When it is green the system will go to the start-up menu and enjoy your Playstation 3

I plug all the right stuff in but its not coming on the screen...i have i fixed to video and everything


Assuming you plugged in everything correctly, (power, yellow white and red) and have set the TV to the proper channel/input, there are only a few other possibilities:

1. Video cord may be bad (unlikely)
2. Xbox 360 may have some sort of hardware problem (would have to ship it in for repairs if it does)
3. TV won't support it. To check that, all you have to do is try it on a different TV.

Oh and something else I remembered. On the end of the video cord that goes into the Xbox, there's a little switch on the side of it. Make sure you have it set appropriately

Good Luck :)

How do i install an xbox360?


Plug the power unit into to the back. Plug the AV cable to the back of the TV (match the colors) and the back of the Xbox. You'll either use the red/white/yellow if you have a regular tv, or the red/green/blue if you have an HDTV. Then switch the switch on the AV cable to the right setting (HDMI/HDTV or regular TV). Install the AA alkaline batteries in the controller (or the battery pack if you got the rechargeable battery kit). Plug the power cord into the power unit, then last plug the power cord into the wall. Wait a minute for the power unit to light up and then push the big green Xbox button in the middle of the controller down for three seconds and let it go. It should turn on. If not, find someone local to help you. This is all stuff covered in detail in the owners manual.
