    On the Protron PLT-26, mine went dark with no sound all at once, like it was on a timer circuit to go bad at that exact time. I checked with the service centers locally and they can't fix this brand of TV since no parts are available. I wouldn't recommend buying an off-brand in the future.

    The tv was on and all of a sudden the tv just went off and never came back on again. I had a service technican come out to the home to perform a diagnostic test. I found out that I need a new circuit board and you can not get the part(s) for the 32" Protron Crystal Display LCD. I have only had this LCD for 2 years and its no GOOD!!!! What can I do? Having problems contacting the manufacturer to honor the warranty.........

Just posted this elsewhere:
 I checked and found the Protron name belong(s) or (ed) to Spectroniq and neither of the two websites are up anymore. 
Also, I could probably make a zapped supply work again but you do not know what might have been damaged downstream from it and that is a good possibility; the damage may be much deeper than it appears since many of the integrated circuits used in modern equipment don't tolerate hundred (or thousand) volt spikes and without a working supply, there is little chance of diagnosing it unless a service department has a few lab-type power supplies and can simulate the failed original supply. 
If you do find anyone who has stock on assemblies for this TV, you may find more than one part number on the board. If it is a number that seems to be under clear lacquer, it is likely only the bare board number. If it seems to be stamped on or has a label with a number on it, this is going to be the whole part number for the 'stuffed' board.  
I can't help you with this one but I would suggest, especially if you live in a lightning-prone area to consider installing a 'whole house' surge protector. They do cost a couple of hundred US dollars plus installation charges, but the established companies even include an insurance policy that covers $10,000-25,000 in damages. If you own your home, it's your decision and I cannot imagine any landlord would object to having you install one at your own expense.

Panasonic tcp42x1 non stop blinking no powerup

It sounds that the main digital board has the fault. Non stop blinks of standby LED indicates that there is no serial clock, serial data flow. In other words, Bus circuit is blocked. This bus is generated from the main system control IC on the main board. As you know, there is no repair to this main board. Only replacement can be done as card basis.

Cleaning the PC board in an RCA universal remote control

Cleaning will help only for removing dirt. I think in your case, the contacts in the circuit board and the rubber pad is damaged with heavy use. So use CARBON INK to recreate the contacts in the circuit board. Also use carbon dots(Available in sticker form) in rubber pad.
I think, this will fix your problem

No Blue

Nope you did it! Its the blue tube. Go to and enter your model number and look up the tube. I did one last month for someone at Are you the same person? Oh well look it up but do you have the proper equipment to replace this tube, as its very dangerous to handle!! They have a tendency to implode and then explode if not handled right.
