Question about Protron Televison & Video

Hi my tv works pretty good except that after about 20 to 30 seconds the tv turns black. The sound still works perfectly fine but I would like a little picture with that as well. How do I fix this? My friend said it might be the inverter box....

There's a good chance you have failing electrolytic capacitors either in the power section or the inverter section or both.
Any caps in these sections that look bulged at the top, or bulged/leaking at the bottom need to be replaced.
If you repeatedly turn it off and back on, eventually it'll probably stay on, but every time you turn it off, the TV will get harder and harder to keep the picture up until one day it just won't.
Sometimes you have to do the opposite to start it up and unplug it for 5 mins, then try.

If you aren't tech savvy, don't worry, read the rest of this solution and watch the videos.

If you are handy with a soldering iron and can identify the power supply and inverter / FM section for the backlights, an inexpensive handful of capacitors will likely fix you right up.
Match the capacitance on the capacitors. Go over voltage if you can, and still have them fit.
IE - it's not a bad idea to replace a 10V cap with a 16V or 25V or even a 50V, but don't replace a 680uF cap with a 500uF or a 1000uF (unless you are positive it's only doing ripple filtering, and even then, you should go OVER, not under the uF rating).

Most of the caps that go are 10V 1000uF or 3300uF.

I found some great videos of the procedure (for many Samsungs with the same issue) on youtube.

As you can see, this issue spans plasma TVs, as well as large and small LCD TVs and monitors.
The parts are cheap, and skill required is minimal.

Hi I'm having an issue with a Sony TV model KDF-E42A10 when I push power button it makes this buzzing sound and it sounds like a fan noise then turns off by itself and it has no picture the screen displays...


Is it 3 sets of 2 buzzes about 15 seconds apart ?
---This is a bad bulb or an improperly installed replacement

or a continuous buzzing ?
----This is a Power Supply Unit going-bad or failed. The louder it gets the harder it is working....eventually it will fail. Ensure there is proper ventilation around your TV.

You have inadvertently activated one of the closed-caption modes called T1 or Text 1. Find out how to turn the closed-captioning off and on and you'll be able to turn this off.

Sony sets are tricky to troubleshoot and you're not telling us much. For example, do you hear anything at all when you turn it on (clicking or high voltage coming up then shutting down). Anything appears on the screen at all ? Does the red light on the front blink and if so how many times ?

My TV pictures turns black afetr a few hours but I still can hear sound perfectly!!!


It sounds like your rptv lamp is going out. If this is an older DLP this is most likely the cause. You can get a replacement at www.laptopsforless.com part number BP96-00224J for $151. If the tv is still under warranty, I would have them do it, otherwise replace it yourself. If so here is a link to give you step by step instruction. Please give me a good rating. ;-)

Black square covering up most of the screen


Try goeing into your Menu and see if you have the closed Caption on that will produce a black box on the screen if you have the owners manual look in there,if you don't have it you can go on line and download it from the manufactures website under Downloads Good luck Walter Grzybowski

All kinds of weirdness going on...


hi maybe your connections are poor try changing them and see if it works out but it sounds like a solders problem: they are dry or broken try and see if you give it a small tap on the side the picture shakes\dissapears\working good at last if soo then its that i guess that you dont have any electric background soo you will need to take it to a tech gay good luck
