Question about Protron PLTV-32 Television
My power supply failed on my PLTV-32 after about three years. Was unable to find an exact replacement, but ordered one from LCDPAYLESS.COM for $125.00 - Item No. ADP-2412V-4P. Just received it, not quite what I expected, it's actually two separate power supplys spliced into one, but it works fine (for the moment).

I found a power supply for this TV on Ebay but it is about $150.00 and is not guaranteed for more than a month.I found it after I sent for one that did not work with the TV.If I do try the right spec unit...12V 3Amp with light and fan and it works, I will try to get back to inform you all....CDM

Just wanted to let you all know that I recently had to deal with the same problem with my ac adaptor failing (blue light off and the fan not working, no power to the tv). I did a lot of searching and found out Protron/SpectronIQ is filing for bankruptcy!! I also didn't feel like giving $150 to LCD Payless when I'm seeing posts that their "replacement" isn't working either. Long story short: I found a guy in my area that was able to FIX my ac adaptor!! Now my TV is working again. I've seen so my posts from people with this problem and I figured others would want to know. His email is [email protected] I think this could be the solution for many people and it was definitely cheaper than buying a new TV. Good luck all!

Just wanted to thank the poster that recommended Dave. ([email protected]) Mailed him our kaput ac adapter and he sent it back, fixed, used better parts - and it works beautifully. Fast service too. He does only give a 30 day warranty, but we have had no problems. Highly recommend. He saved us from having to buy another tv!

Just purchased LCD payless's ac adapter for 142.00 and so far it's working great. It's nice because there's no light and no fan noise like the Protron adapter.

I had the same problem with my ac adaptor for my Protron LCD TV failing. I started to read the seemingly hundreds of messages online from all those having the same problem. Very long story short, after doing a lot of research and searching (calling Protron/SpectronIQ and finding out they are filing for bankruptcy!!) I found a guy in my area that is good with electronics and was actually able to REPAIR MY AC ADAPTOR!! The TV is working great now! If anyone is interested in getting in touch with him and seeing if he can fix your adaptor as well, his email is [email protected] He charged nowhere near what they are charging on ebay for the supposed "replacement" that people are also having problems with. And its way better than buying a new TV. Good luck all! I hope this helps.

My original power adapter finally stopped working about 3 months ago (after having the set for 3 years). I found the only place to get a replacement adapter was on EBay, which I bought for about $140 (including shipping). The new adapter was two adapters connected together. Anyway, just to let you know the new adapter that I have had for 3 months is now not working properly - not enough power seems to be coming from the adapter to power the TV, so the picture 'flicks' on a off every few seconds. After only 3 months!!!!!!
I am trying to contact the guy on EBay but the warenty was only one month. Is there no pride in making a decent product anymore? This TV sucks! And getting proper parts is a joke!
I have bought another TV now - a SAMSUNG. No more no-name brands for me. I am going to stick with the well know brands in future.

We fought with the people we bought this TV from and never did get any satisfactory resolution. I can tell you that we ordered an adapter from them and it DID NOT solve the problem so it is not the adapter. Finally, we just gave the TV to a TV repairman to play with and he still has it. We have another TV - learned a very valuable lesson.

This is a very easy to fix problem for a tech, but maybe dificult to regular people, bet you got a broken solder in the power suply input to the tv, move the cable terminal and see if the picture comes, any way is a job for a tech...good luck fan only work when the power supply drain higth current as the video is on....

If I where you, I would just go to hardware store and get multi-adapter for $10 and make your own

I also sent my power supply to Dave in California.
Service and turnaround was incredible. I sent it to him, he e-mailed when he received, the e-mailed a day later that it was fixed and on its way back to me. Very reliable and reasonable. This all happened in April 2009.
Dave- thanks so much
