Spectroniq / 32& PLTV-3250

Our Spectroniq 32 in. LCD was working fine when I went turned it off Saturday night. When I went to turn it on Sunday morning, the tv wasn't powering up. Cable is working. Plug in wall is working. Tried to plug it in another wall socket. Still no power. Power cord is in securely. TV was purchased in November of 2007. Haven't had a single problem with it until now. I tried to call Spectroniq & they say the number is out of my calling area. I was able to get to their website on Sunday and sent an email to their support department. Still have not heard back. Tried to get to their website today and it is not loading.

Has anyone else had this problem? If so, were they able to resolve it? Any information you can provide is appreciated.

    had same problem. did everything the book said to do for powershooting tips. tried to call company, no answer. couldn't find anything on internet for spectroniq. did find website called neco, that is supposedly connected to spectroniq. they only gave a long distance number which is in new york. called it and all I got was a message that repeated over and over again. finally called the store where the tv was purchase, and they informed me that they no longer carried this brand. they did give me a number to their service department, who then inform me that they don't repair them because spectroniq is no longer in business and that they cannot get parts for their products. So this is where I am today... still searching internet hoping for a miracle!!!

    Wow. I had the same problem 2 weeks ago. Worked fine and bam no power the next day. I did all the troubleshoot. I purchase my TV 2007 as well. I am surprise there is not some resolution for us consumers by now. If anyone finds a solution, please post. I wonder if i could at least sell the TV for parts and recoup some money.

    I'm having the same problem. Like many, many others, I to purchased a Spectroniq, PLTV 3250 LCD HDTV 32 inch Television. After having the television for 3 years it suddenly stopped working with no warning. No power lights red or green. The television completly died. One day is was working perfect and the next day I was unable to turn the television on. I tried calling the company for assistance and recieved a busy signal or recording. Based on blogs and complaints that I've read, its clear that this is a common defect that occurs in this model. I purchased my TV in August 06, as others purchased their televisions within the same time frame and are experiencing the same issues 3 years later. It seems as if this television built with a 3 year life expectancy. Is there anything we can do?

    I bought my spectroniq 720 hdtv through the home shopping network on tv, Shop NBC to be exact. I won't be buying anything from them anymore. I got two of these piece of junks for the price of one and one worked perfectly, the other, it would turn to blue screen that would read "dtv". I called Shop NBC and they said that I would have to ship it back to them and that I would have to pay for shipping. I told them that I shouldn't have to pay for shipping and that was the extent of their help. I still have the same problem with that tv, but at least it works until the blue screen appears then I just hit the tv button and it will work fine until the blue screen pops up again. However, the other tv, the one that was working perfectly doesn't turn on anymore. As of yesterday, it's now a useless piece of junk. Word to the wise, don't buy from tv shopping networks, especially Shop NBC.

    I bought two Spectroniq 32 in tv, the same model as the complainer. When I took them to the TV repairman. They said they had two more that came in. They have not been able to find parts for my TV, they said it is a piece of junk, and I should throw it away. These TV are less then two years old, and I paid over $1, 700.00 for them on from the online HSN on tv. I am angry that I was taken, and made a fool of. It make me not want to buy another flat screem tv, and will not buy any tv from HSN again.

    I have 2 of these TV's. The one went just like everyone else and I purchased a new power supply online for $30 or $40. My other one just went so I have to do that one now. It is easy to do if you have any technical ability. Just do a search online for your Model number and power supply and you wioll find several suppliers - watch the price though, some are high but there are a few that are pretty reasonable. I don't remember where I ordered the last one from, I am still looking for the paperwork.
