Re: protron 42" tv
I would suggest to search for customers reviews of this product if you can google it. Personally I have not own one of this TV, I only service them.
I think LCD's and Plasmas are newer technology and the designers and manufacturers still trying to make them better. If you buy one of this TV, try buying the extended warranty if possible.
In regards to the power supply repairs, It could go from about $85.00 to $125.00 or it could be more expensive if you're buying a new board.
a 6ya Technician can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.
Best thing about this new service is that you are never placed on hold and get to talk to real repair professionals here in the US. click here to Talk to a Technician (only for users in the US for now) and get all the help you need. Goodluck!

No repair can be done for a broken screen. Replacement only can be done. But it will cost 2/3rd of the total cost of the TV. If you think it is OK, replace it. Otherwise buy a new TV. It will be the best.
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.
Hi. I hope this info helps you out today. Flat screen displays such as this have a real bad problem of the capacitors going out without notice. There is an overwhelming abundance of cheap, low quality capacitors on the market, and ALOT of these have been installed into flat panel displays and flat tv's. The capacitors should last around 25 to 30 years, but are only lasting as short as 6 months instead. Some of them fail because the formula used to make the gel inside the caps is incorrect, some are failing due to poor quality casings that fail , some due to poor soldering, and some due to poor quality control. Cheap quality is ruining millions of peoples experience with flat tv's and monitors. It makes them think that ALL flat panel's are junk, and that's just not the case. A vast majority of them are just fine, but if it's one that has the defective parts inn it, then it can be frustrating.
Yes, it can be repaired, but it may be a cost prohibitive procedure, as it can cost as much to fix it as it would cost to just buy a new one.
If you want to try and get it fixed, then take it to Fry's or BestBuy. They both have special service techs for just this kind of repair, as they have had specific training to do the needed repairs.
I hope this let's you know what the deal is, and gives you options as to what to do.
The control chip is dead. Since the chip is on the mainboard it also must be completely replaced.
The problem is not in the price - the board and the replacement labor by a repairman will cost you less than $300 - it will be in finding the board in the first place: Protron is a no-name manufacturer that makes its tv's from separate parts that it buys from other manufacturers at the cheapest price possible, they only assemble them also the cheapest way possible; as such you can't get parts from them , they don't have any - especially if the tv is out of production for more than a year(all the warranties have expired and they no longer have to fix them). Because of that all you can do is to try to find a second hand board online or at a repair shop. Before calling a repairman make sure it can get the board at a reasonable price.
Hello, Open the back cover of the television to check for dry soldering , if found resolder and power it on , if otherwise, Your power supply board is not yet dead, u know basic electronics’ and soldering? Most of the times, the power supply board just have dead leakages gases capacitors.These capacitors always bulges up on it top,or puff up on it top.Replaced these gases leakages capacitors will get your TV power stable,and work again.Or tries websites like Shopjimmy.com,Ebay.com to buy a whole refurbish power supply board for the replacement.
Unfortunately, Protron LCD's are very low quality, mine went out in 15months. Your problem may be similar to one I had & I fixed it by cycling the on/off switch next to where the power cord goes in the back of the TV. Also make sure the power cord is inserted right since the "yellow" light indicate powering up but not full power. Hope this fixes it since I couldn't find ANYONE that services/repairs PROTRON brand.
