Question about RCA L37WD12 37 in. LCD HDTV

1 Answer

Protron LCD televsion has no audio

I've just read several comments regarding this company's product. I too purchased (not one but two) Protron televisions from Shop NBC and the extended warranty. I have called several times and been told to reset the television. I would turn it off and wait a few moments and then the sound would return but now I have no sound on either televsion. I have a lovely picture but no sound. I am wonder about a label on the back that says it is analog and may have not be compatible with digitable signals.

Does this mean that I need some type of equipment because it's connected to my cable box? Could that be the problem or am I just screwed? I can't get any where with customer service either. I haven't even been offered to mail the sets back. I had them both for less than two years.

    I have the same problem. For awhile, I could shut the tv off, and back on, and the sound would return. But now, like you, no sound no matter what I do. I have run this differently also to double check for any different type sounds, like digital, or analog, and still, no sound. We may have been had. :( Mine is a 32".

The TVs sound would not just not quit working because it is not digital. I have a TV from 1985 that still can be connected to a cable box. What I would do is get a few RCA cables and connect the satallite to the TV with the RCA cables if that does not work try hooking it up with a cable cord, if that does not work i have no idea to help you.

I have a Videocon 42"


Hi,

Are all of the functions still working on the TV? If so, then the good news is that it's simply a bad screen, but the bad news is that replacement screens are impossible to come by unless you are an Authorized repair center for Proton. The only option you have is to replace the TV, or contact a shop.

From what I've found out, Protron and Spectroniq are the same company. I just visited the Protron web site and it has not been updated since 2007. I believe the company is no longer in business and will doubt if you will find a Protron Service Center. You are very lucky to find a repair shop that will attempt to work on the TV, most will not. The internet is plagued with issues with this TV. Even the cost of the screen would not be worth repair.

Let me know,if needed further assistance.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

It works sometimes but mostly never. The power is on and the screen is blank.


For anyone who still has this issue including above morris_gray,
I've encountered this myself with my first generation M-Audio Axiom 25 USB MIDI Controller plugged into a MacBook using GarageBand (G2 apparently has identical malfunction).
It should be noted that I never installed any type of software for the device, that came with the device. I simply wanted a controller for GarageBand, and I will also note that it has worked flawlessly for about 4 years on this setup, until about a week ago...

I'll provide what information I have gathered about the blank LCD screen issue as well as the controller simply not functioning correctly as listed below:
The most common way people test/fix this is to "hard reset":
- turn controller off (assuming you've kept the usb cable connected to your computer)
- hold down both the + and - buttons directly below the lcd, and simply turn the power on. Some numbers should appear on the lcd soon after the reboot and you are okay to release said buttons...
I've read testimonials, watched videos of people doing this and successfully getting their device back in action, though the reset will default anything you have saved for the device.

Sadly, this did not work on mine. I've tried several different cables- in several different usb ports- on several different computers (as suggested by M-Audio on their support page. I still get a lit up but blank lcd. I've even tried to still use it but only some awful noises come out and nearly every function just makes the thing freak out and it becomes silent/unusable/useless.
M-Audio suggests sending it back to them for fixing at this point.
Because I've had my Axiom 25 Gen. 1 for so long and I have never installed anything what so ever that came in the box, and have little faith that M-Audio will replace mine, I will most likely try to take it apart and mess around with the electronics inside as it's just a big paperweight now.
I did read that in the Gen. 1's the blank lcd could be a result of a chip gone wrong, so to speak... Gen. 2's had some type of "grounding" issue that resulted in the blank lcd and such.
I hope this helps anyone, if I stumble upon a way to fix this through my own curiosity I will inform the masses...
I'll be on the hunt for a new controller most likely and it probably wont be an M-Audio...not that I'm upset with the product, it lasted me quite a while and I've made a lot of solid songs/music with it, but rather I feel the need for something different and maybe a little more sturdy that can actually be a synthesizer on its own, not just a controller.

Ac adaptor on my 32 Protron inch LCD TV no longer work


What is the current output of the adaptor? If it is AC and you use only the 12v to 3v it is ok. But if the current output of the adaptor is DC and you use both 24v to 6v and 12v to 3v there is some danger if use the new one. Remember that DC current have polarity.

Re: Protron LCD tv - READ THIS #631 I work for Protron.

We are in a big dispute with the Chinese factory that makes Protron LCDs. No replacement parts will be coming, ever.

There are no remotes and no power supplies available.

PROTON has already won their lawsuit which prevents us from selling under the name PROTRON. As soon as they pay the bond, we are shut down.

Our management is in chaos. Our customer service dept is non-existant. Our rating with the BBB is 'F'. The product is cheap because it is made with cheap parts. Getting the picture here?

If you buy a Protron LCD, you are completely on your own.

Good luck.

Blackout, High Pitch Squeel


Funny to see this because this is exactly what is happening to my 32 inch TV and I was researching to see if some one else had this problem and right away I find this, I've had my set for over a year now, and I have no solution at this time, but I will continue to research this, I figured that Protron would blame the cable company,that's what company's with crappy products usually do. Blame someone else.
