Question about Protron PLTV-26 26 in. HD-Ready LCD Television

2 Answers

It will not turn on manually or with the remote.

This happened during a thunder storm and all the electricty went off for about two minutes. I had been watching the T.V. when the power was out, but when the power came back, the T.V. had no power. I checked all circuit breakers. If it was struck by lightening, can it be repaired?

Posting this for the third time now:
 I checked and found the Protron name belong(s) or (ed) to Spectroniq and neither of the two websites are up anymore. 
Also, I could probably make a zapped supply work again but you do not know what might have been damaged downstream from it and that is a good possibility; the damage may be much deeper than it appears since many of the integrated circuits used in modern equipment don't tolerate hundred (or thousand) volt spikes and without a working supply, there is little chance of diagnosing it unless a service department has a few lab-type power supplies and can simulate the failed original supply. 
If you do find anyone who has stock on assemblies for this TV, you may find more than one part number on the board. If it is a number that seems to be under clear lacquer, it is likely only the bare board number. If it seems to be stamped on or has a label with a number on it, this is going to be the whole part number for the 'stuffed' board.  
I can't help you with this one but I would suggest, especially if you live in a lightning-prone area to consider installing a 'whole house' surge protector. They do cost a couple of hundred US dollars plus installation charges, but the established companies even include an insurance policy that covers $10,000-25,000 in damages. If you own your home, it's your decision and I cannot imagine any landlord would object to having you install one at your own expense.

What circuit board might cause the following problem in my TV?


One of the most likely causes is a bad main board. If this went out during or shortly after a thunder storm the main board was probably damaged. You also could have a bad Y-sus board or a bad X-sus board causing the same symptom but these are not as prone to being damaged by a power surge.

What your describing is symptoms of a power surge, Many LCD Tv's are sensative to Slight fluctuation in power during rain, thunder and lightning storms, i myself was happily watching Tv through such a storm at one time, and when i went to bed the TV would not respond remotely or manually, i also disconnected the power from the wall waited for the ready light to disolve and try to turn on, unfortunatley the damage was done, a Tv Repair was nessecary and since then i now use a belkin power surge protector board for my TV and appliances......one question to you is i would guarantee you do not use a surge protection my friend......and your set will need a Tv Repair, it is not major as what is neccesary is a firmware dump on the internal memory and replace the BIOS Battery as well.

HELP! I think my TV got zapped and is ruined from storm!


Check whether the power outlet has power. If it has, I suggest please do not attempt to switch on the TV, unless checked by a qualified service technician.

Go to this repair page - your electrolytic capacitors in the power supply could be failing: http://www.fixya.com/support/r741402-polaroid_flm_373b_lcd_tv_black_screen If not, then if there is a fuse, you should be able to find it with the back off. I don't recall seeing one though.

Leave the TV off and unplugged for 24 hours then try it. If it still doesnt work you may need to consult an engineer. The TVs power supply board may have blown due to power surge/spike. I recommend getting a surge protector to avoid this happening in future.
