Tip & How-To about Polaroid FLM-3732 Television
I'm still in the middle of getting capacitors so that I can try Stiv0's suggestions and I think it will work because the back of the old capacitors were swollen like the pictures shown. I had trouble finding the capacitors because the electronics stores don't want to sell customers parts because they can't charge ridiculous prices for 10 minutes of work. I ended up finding the 1000uf (microfarad) 10 volt capacitors on a website for $1 per package of 6. There is a minimum $10 purchase for delivery so I'll have 60 in a few days which isn't bad. After shipping it'll only cost $17 to fix my TV. Here is the website if you are having the same problems I am.
If radio shack or the electronics stores won't sell the capacitors to you give this a shot.
