I've had a Protron 32" LCD HD TV for 2 months now. About a month ago it started acting up. It will all of a sudden emit a loud popping noise and then one of several things happens: it usually freezes the picture and then goes black or blue, or it then emits a piercing, high pitched sound and then freezes the picture and then goes black or it just goes black. In each circumstance the green light on the front of the tv which indicates that it is active turns to red which means the power is in sleep mode. At this point the only way to get it going again is to turn it off completey via the back side power button, essentially resetting it, because the remote ceases to function until you do. It occurs multiple times in a row but randomly. It will be fine for a week or two then occur several times in a few days. Protron tried to blame it on the cable system (Comcast). Is this a power supply problem? Has anyone else experienced this?
Funny to see this because this is exactly what is happening to my 32 inch TV and I was researching to see if some one else had this problem and right away I find this, I've had my set for over a year now, and I have no solution at this time, but I will continue to research this, I figured that Protron would blame the cable company,that's what company's with crappy products usually do. Blame someone else.

hello, the first thing to do is to check the power supply, meaning check the main fuse and burned components,if do not have any electronics repair skills call the repairman, but first carefully open the set and check the all the fuses.
If your TV is not turning ON, the power supply is defective. It's a bit hard to find service parts for these TVs, the only way to fix the power supply is to replace the defective parts.

got a 32 inch wharfedale tv from argos also and it seems to boot up and then shut down and just loops, if i keep unplugging it i can sometimes get it on but with a high pitch wailing, only 15 months old, gutted!
I had a pwer supply for my Protron 32 inch TV that was not working. I bought the one on ebay and it stopped working after only three weeks. Ultimately I found a guy who could fix my original power supply for a reasonable price. It been working for a year now with no problems. I wish I would have tried him first!!!!
