Avion 32" LCD HD TV AC Adapter 090-02180-I3 Problem

We have an Avion 32" LCD HD Tv which uses an AC Adapter.Some time ago the adapter - YHi model # 090-02180-I3 - stopped functioning. WE can't use the Tv with out it. Can we get another AC adapter with the same model # to power the Tv? Please advise. I also have had the 090-02180-13 YHi ac adaptor/power supply go out on my Avion 32" LCD TV. Need to find one or equivalent.

    I have the same problem with a relatively new Avion TV purchased
    through Shop NBC. Manufacturer did not have any power supplys to
    sell me one. Looking for a solution too. Looks like I saw
    some on Ebay for over $120.

    Same problem with our's, TV actually worked prett good up until then ac adpater fried itself, are there any solutions out there?

  • gibsoncr1 Sep 06, 2008

    Mine just went out too and based upon what I am reading from all of you, I need to shop for another television. It wont be from SHOPNBC! If you have found an adapter, from a reputable establishment, please let us all know. I don't want to go to ebay and have no warranty or help after the purchase. Good luck to you all and sometimes, paying a little extra for a name doesn't seem so bad.

    Mine just went out too. it lost sound a couple of monhts ago, but we were able to use the surround sound system to accommodate. last night the AC adapter stopped functioning altogether. I will never buy from ShopNBC again since they do not seem to back their products. If any one has a solution I would greatly appreciate it. I don't have the money to buy another TV this size.

    I have the same problem and it is really affecting me because I can not go to bed with out the TV and the Avion was in the master bedroom. My husband and I are sleeping in the guest room. But it is getting old :-)

    I have the same problem. Has anyone found a solution or found the AC Adaptor?

  • missoctober1 Nov 29, 2008

    My ac adapter stopped working and now I can't do anything with my tv. Its model number is 0900218013. In additon, no one can advise me on where to get a new one. Had I known this ahead of time, I never would have invested in this television.

    Beware! I used the lcdpayless company to order a new Avion 32" LCD HD TV AC Adapter 090-02180-I3 which I paid for through paypal. I never received the merchandise. It has been 2 months. I referred the company to the FBI Internet Crime Division.

You will need two adapters 24V and 12V. You can buy them from mpja.com. Do not buy anything from LCDPayless. They are crooks. I order power supply for Protron 32" and they sent me some garbage that is not working. I returned it and they refused to reimburse me full amount and then they claimed they didn't receive it at all. STAY AWAY FROM THEM THEY ARE THIEVES.

I found someone who is able to repair the adapter. I came real close to just chunking the thing, but someone from this board, I think, told me about him. I emailed it to him and within the week he'd fixed it. Below is his name and email address:

My Avion 32" LCD uses the same power adapter, model YHI 090-02180-I3 it has it on internal fan that has been alway loud but sounds like it may go out soon...if the fan goes out then it will over heat and fail I'm sure...another fine China made product 8)....anyhow...I was searching for a replacement when I saw many post of people not being able to get one.

Go to www.lcdpayless.com and in their search box type in 090-02180-13 (13 not I3)...I know its a "I" on the model but not many people notice that and if you put in I3 the search engine doesnt find it.

They are selling for $127.99 it looks like you may have to use paypal...I'm not sure because I am going to wait to see how long mine will last...who knows if it goes a couple of years I might just throw the whole TV out and buy a new one for $127.99... 8)

If this helps anyone please respond so everyone will know if it is good info or not.

I bought an avion flat screen 32 inch from shop nbc. the black adaptor gives off a bright light all of the time. At the time i bought it I had a non hd time warner cable box. I requested an hdtv box from time warner which they installed. sometime in the summer of 2006 the light began to dim. I went to florida on vacation for 1 week. when i returned there was no light and my tv did not work. I called time warner. one twc rep hesitantly told me there were a few cases with their hd boxes on some tv brands. but they could not help me. i called in a tv repairman who looked and left. i called shop nbc and the rep there arrogantly said i should have bought a warranty.
I called the california telephone number for avion on the original booklet. I did get a man who sounded like he was in india not california. he asked if the light was out on the black box. when i said yes, he said it might be that i needed a new black box and the tv might work again with a new box. i said where do i get the nex box. he said i can order it with him. i said how much? he said 80 bucks. i said great can I order one. he said yes, but not when they are out of stock and on back order, which he said they currently were. well it took many many many months and many phone calls to the same man. finally after many months, the box was in stock. he took my order and i finally got a replacement box not more than a week or two later. I plugged it in and to my great relief my tv worked like new! it is now almost 4 years later and the tv is still perfect. the only thing i did do at that time was to gett time warner to take away the hd box and replace it with a standard box with dvr. i have a new problem now. i just switched to verizon fios and their list of remote codes do not list avion so I cannot use the fios remote to control volume and turn set on and off. i am now going to try to find out the code for verizon. its strange because the last brochure i got from time warner gave a code for avion and verizon does not list one. anyone out there know the avion tv remote code for verizon fios?

The quick fix is throw that tv away, and buy a new one. Even if you find an ac adapter for it , the next thing that goes is the tuner and if that does not fail sound will! Shop nbc got us all with Protron piece of #%(($%$# TV.

SOURCE: ac adapter

If I understand your description correctly, you have two TVs that use the same model adapter, and both adapters have failed. In that case, I would suspect a weak design, or you may have put them in some place where they were overheated or zapped by power line surges. If it appears to be a design problem, you may want to consider using a substitute.

The adapter should have the output voltage and current marked on it, for example, 12VDC 2300mA would be a 12 Volt, 2.3 Amp output. The polarity is usually marked with a diagram showing whether the center in or hole in the plug is positive or negative.

You can use an adapter with the same voltage and plug style (including polarity) and the same or greater current output. If you find one with the right voltage and current, but the wrong plug, you may be able to change the plug. Just be absolutely certain you have the wires going to the correct terminals; reversing the polarity could damage or destroy your TV. Do a proper solder job on it; simply stripping the wires and twisting them on will not be reliable.

AC ADAPTOR 090-02180-I3


Here's the only place I know that sells them:
http://stores.ebay.com/LCDPAYLESS_LCD-monitor-Power-Supply_W0QQcolZ2QQdirZQ2d1QQfsubZ2195941QQftidZ2QQtZkm

It seem to be the #1 common problem with the Protron TV.
It maybe cheaper to find someone to fix the power supply, but if you get it from LCDPAYLESS, make sure it has some type of warranty on it. I hate to see anyone pay $130 and it only last a couple of months.

AC ADAPTOR FOR PROTON 32 LCD


Hi and welcome to FixYa,

To my understanding, any power adapter would serve the purpose as long as the replacement adapter have the same specification as that of the original. Pls confirm, 100-240V 50-60HZ 3.0A max. output +25 6A +12 3A. The only limiting factor is that the plug/connector should fit the jack of the TV unit.

Having said that, then most electronics store would have a generic replacement. You can even look for replacement from computer stores. Over the counter sale would not need a PayPal account, and cash sale would of course not require a credit card. It would be to your advantage to bring along the original/defective with you to compare/as per sample.

Good luck and thank you fur using FixYa.

Protron 32 in pltv3250 will not come on


Does it have a YHI power adapter or an internal power supply? The YHI type has a power adapter box with a low voltage cable that plugs into the TV. The internal power supply TV only has a power cord. dave@thola.com
