The remote control to our Protron got dropped on the floor yesterday causing the batteries to pop out. Now it isn't working at all. Is there something to check for in the remote to see if it can be fixed or are there options for replacing the remote control for this brand of television?
I had a 32 in Protron , finally replaced it yesterday, couldn't get a picture on it, but I was on here looking for solutions and saw people that needed the power cord and remote so I kept them. If you would like them email me at [email protected] and put I need your Protron accessories in the subject box and tell me where I can send them.
No universal will work.. I'm making a remote for this TV that people can buy on ebay-- by july 1st 2007 search ebay for pltv-32 remote and you will find a programmed, ready to go remote for less than $25 that will work well with other devices (comcast cable box, sony audio systems, etc..)

The remote control is dead or the remote CPU chip that control all functions is dying and only some of functions buttons will work,some wouldn't anymore or the rubber insulater between the rubber buttons and the remote circuitry board are worn out and make no more contact.Can u take the remote aparts?Yes.Check all the rubber butttons insulater see if they're still good.Tries clean the remote PC circutries board with some rubbing alchahol also the battery - + connections too.Wait like about 20 mins for the rubbing alchahol to completely dries.Putting it back together again an putting in new batteries,the remote control might work again.If not have same result.Try website like Remotes.com to buy an original or very close compatible remote for a replacement.
Try fixing your old remote control.
Take off the battery, open the back of your remote, lift the circuit board, clean the green painted part with cotton balls slightly damp with rubbing alcohol as well as the black thingy behind your remote pad, let it dry put it back together, replace with a new battery and try if it works.
make sure the remote works first! one way to check it out is using your cellphone camera and point the remote to the camera and see on the camera for any light that come from the remote. make sure you have good batteries
You may just have a bad remote or the IR sensor in the TV may be bad. Bring the remote to a store that sells Protron and try it. You may be able to get a new one if it is bad http://www.protronusa.com/contact.php
there is a problem with the front control buttons. i see this quite often at the shop. the best way to deternmine this is to remove the buttons and use the remote to turn it on if it goes away then i would suggest replace the button cuicit board assembly
