We have a Protron 42 Liqiud Crystal Display TV (PLTV-4250).

Customer Question
We have a Protron 42"...
We have a Protron 42" Liqiud Crystal Display TV (PLTV-4250). Two days ago it made a strange squeaking sound and shut off. After unplugging the TV and plugging it back in, it came back on. It has problems now though. It came back on brighter than normal and won't adjust back to 'normal'. It also shuts off when we go to the 'menu' and move from icon to icon at the top of the menu. The TV will not turn on again unless we unplug it and plug it again (either on the side of the TV or with the remote). Is this something that can be fixed?
