Question about Protron PLTV-26 26 in. HD-Ready LCD Television
It can' be a fuse problem but it could be a wire connection problem or video card problem.
But first, connect the TV to a DVD player using a RCA and observe if there would be sound.
In case you don't know; Yellow stands for video, Red stands for Audio and White also stands for Audio.
The wires will go from "OUT" of the DVD player to "AV IN" at the back of the TV.
If there is still no display after this, please let me know so that I may direct you further.

Disconnect the TV for few minutes, say 10 minutes and then turn it ON.If the problem persists, then it would confirm an internal failure. It is neither a fuse nor wiring.There is no fuse in this TV. There is no wiring other than the connectors between various boards. Rarely, i have seen any issue with them. I could say, rare of rarest.
This is highly suggestive of ' bad inverter board '. You need to get this tested and replaced.
Initially, since the Protron PLTV-26 is an LCD type TV, a simple test is to shine a flashlight at an angle towards the screen. Do this in a darkened room. Aim towards the area where the volume level is usually shown. Press on the volume control Up/Down. If semblance of the level could be seen even darkly / faintly, then the problem with the Protron would be a backlighting issue. Backlight as the term implies, refers to the soft whitish glow provided by small tube like bulbs behind the screen. This then would almost always be a hardware fault, not a setting nor a configuration concern and would require that the PLTV-26 be opened up to effect repairs.
Options then are:
If a DIY is being considered, possible suspects are:
