If it's failing to turn on, the main power supply is probably at fault and without some technical background and a couple of test instruments, you will not be able to do the repair yourself.
What you can do though is; unplug the set, let it stand overnight or at least several hours, remove the back panel and look for a separate board with mostly larger components on it; it will have a ferrite core (no laminations as with a line-frequency part) transformer on it and several larger capacitors which are cylindrical and mounted vertically to the board.

Before touching anything inside, especially on that board, allow several hours to be safe since the larger capacitors can hold a painful voltage charge for some hours.

If you see signs of overheating such as discoloration of the board material, the PSU may not be repairable but if you can find a part number on the board, you might be able to buy the power supply from the mfr. and install it yourself but it will likely have the same problem eventually unless they have altered the design or improved component quality.
If there are no signs of heat damage to the board, there may be companies offering to repair it as a subassembly instead of repairing the whole set which could be much more expensive.
If you choose to replace or have it done, the main power supply still may not be at fault since most are capable of switching on and off if a downstream problem is causing an overload and the power supply for the backlight may have failed and is causing an overload shutting down the main supply.

To turn on the TV:

Turning the Display On and Off

There is a power switch on the bottom of the display and a power button on top. The power switch is used to cut off power completely, whereas the power button turns the screen off but
allows the remote to continue working.
To turn the display on:
1. If the power light on the front of the display is off, turn on the power switch on the bottom of the display.
2. Press the POWER button.

To turn the display off:
1. Press the POWER button.
2. If the display will be unused for an extended period of time, turn off the power switch on the bottom of the display and disconnect the power.

Protron lcd tv getting no power


I have the same problem. I am told that I need a new power supply (adaptor) but from what I am reading on the Net, they are very rare and TV repairman told me he cannot find the part. I heard that Protron is out of business.
