20 Most Recent Spectra SS213 TV Questions & Answers

I don't think there is a Direct TV remote code for this type of television. (Strawberry Shortcake). I'm assuming the reason is because this is such a cheap, generic tv that Direct doesn't recognize it. "Strawberry Shortcake" isn't as big as "Hello Kitty" I guess.
. This is sad because even though the big, pink power button has popped off to where you have to press the little rubber nub, my daughter has been using hers for well over two years where many reviewers have given the tv model bad reviews of breaking down after only 6 months. Hers did not come with a DVD player, although it IS a SS213 model.

100% you have or a faulty tuner inside that has to be checked for dry joints or it has to changed completely. Patrick

First and foremost, is it completely black or if you change the channels (like to an HDMI channel) do you see the display number in the corner? If the latter, then it's possible that the device(s) you have plugged into it, or the HDMI port went bad. Doubtful that is the problem, but I thought I would mention it first.

Try unplugging it and leaving it unplugged overnight. When you plug it back in do you have a picture? Probably not, but it's worth a try.

Beyond that, there are a couple of things that can be wrong:
Loose wiring - these TV's are really well known for loose wiring. If you feel competent enough to take the back off the TV, you can check for loose wiring

Bad capacitor's - these TV's also have really poor quality parts inside and a bad capacitor (or multiple bad capacitor's) can cause the same thing. Again, if you feel competent enough to take the back off the TV, you can look for bulging or leaking capacitors, they look sort of like a dripping or draining battery or bulging battery to someone not used to looking at them

Smacking the back of the TV - this one sounds weird, but sometimes smacking the backside of the TV will knock whatever came out of place back into place and it will start working again

Bad bulb - sometimes the bulb goes out, and a bulb is an inexpensive fix, but you'll need a TV repair shop to do the repair (unless you know something about TVs)

Worst case scenario - worst case scenario would be a burnt out board which can cost more than a new TV, especially of this brand

I don't recommend you open the TV unless you feel comfortable. It's high voltage back there and can result in injury if you don't know what you are doing. Additionally, there are some problems that can be fixed by watching You Tube videos it tells you how to diagnose the problem, what to purchase, etc. You might want to research such videos, if you feel comfortable doing the project yourself.

Good luck!

I also have a 32' Protron LCD TV and had the same problem. Try this, it worked for me.
Push the TV button once, then press and hold the Setup button untill TV button flashes two times (aboutut 3-5 seconds) now enter this code 10178. TV button should flash two more times. Now your remote should work your TV. Good Luck!!!

Your TV must be connected to the Internet - through a wired or wireless network - in order to perform system updates. Alternatively, you can download the updates to a USB flash drive, and install the update on the TV via USB
To check whether the Automatically check for update or Automatic software download setting is turned ON or OFF, follow these steps:
  1. Press the HOME button on your remote control.
  2. Select Help.
    For Androidâ„¢ 9 / Android 8.0, select Apps, then select Help.
    NOTE: You can also display the Help screen by pressing the HELP button on the remote control.
  3. Select System software update.
