PROTRON PLTV-32 power supply update

In march 2008 (after 3 years) my original power supply failed. After looking at this website and following the suggestions, I ordered a replacement part from LCDPayless on Ebay. I got the part and it worked for about 3 months and just failed again. Note that this part cost me $140 (including shipping).

Of course they only had a one month warrenty so not expecting any help but have sent off an email to LCDPayless for assistance on getting the power supply changed.

So those of you looking to spend another $120 to $150 on this, may need to know that the power supply bought from EBay may not last either. I had a TV repair company look at my TV and they tell me that there are just NO parts for the PROTRON, so note that you might not be able to get any resolution on this.

PROTRON and shopNBC should be held liable for all these problems that people are having with these TVs.

    I believe this TV is still OK yet the power supply is the cause of the problems. Is there a way to have the power supply fixed, so that I can continue using this TV set?

Change the power supply with a higher amperage so it cannot be easyly break down higher amperage can survive overheating of the supply and can last long try this option....

    You said you got already the part for power supply but din't last long and you said also it cost you 140 bucks. In my understanding this part is for power supply assembly. When we are talking about power supply , ..then we are dealing with the Amperage . Amperage is the current flow in the cycle of power supply. In my opinion that part you buy had a lower amperage value that cannot last long in overheating produce in power supply that is cause why that part is busted... That's why I recommend you to buy another part again with higher amperage value so it will last long and survive in overheating produce in power supply..

    You can take the powersuppy to a professional to be repaired, also you can inspect it yourself for blown fuses but I

    suppose thats not the problem.

I HAVE A PROTRON PLTV-32CM AND LAST WEEK IT JUST WENT OUT. NOW ALL IT DOES IS WHEN YOU CUT THE POWER ON IT JUST GOES AFTER ABOUT 3-4 SECONDS. I REMOVED THE BACK COVER AND ALL THE CAPISTORS LOOKS OK. WHAT...


Protron's mainboards like to fry and a replacement is difficult to find. Protron tvs are built with very cheap parts and don't follow manufacturing guildlines very well and are difficult to find parts for. I would start with the mainboard as the power supplys don't usually fail in these tvs.


Best of luck and please rate if this helped :)

It looks like the power supply failed on your TV. The failure rate is about 95% in the power module.
There aren't service parts available to swap the entire assembly, the only option now will be to fix the power supply to the component level.
Let me know if you need more assistance. You can write to my email address jah2mil@hotmail.com

funny that no one's been able to help you, because I accidentally discovered that the power supply cord for my computer worked for my Protron PLTV-32C lcd...  not sure if your model is different in someway, but you may want to try the cord from your own PC first, 
and if it works.
