Fixing Polaroid FLM 2601 power problem

If your Polariod FLM 2610 wont turn on or takes several tries to turn on, take out the power supply and replace the two 1000uf capacitors new the coil. Then it will work fine. You can get them at Radio Shack. If you don't know how to de-solder and solder find a friend that does. It not hard, you just have to remove a lot of screws, take off the stand, all the permiter screws the about six little screws on the back. You need to take off the two screws holding the input jack card in and unplugh it to get to the two back screws under the inputs.

Polaroid 3700 lcd (2006): Every time it is turned on it makes a high pitch screech that will go away in 5 min. Sometimes,it immediately locks up and has to be unplugged and tried again. It started about 5 weeks ago.

Hello: This is a problem with the power supply unit, There are two capacitors that need to be replaced in this unit. They are the two 1000uf 10V Capacitors that is failing on the power supply, If you take off the back there is a metal module in the center of the unit, lf you open it the power supply is located towards the upper part of the system. Look at the capacitors for puffy and swollen tops, just in case you don't know what capacitors look like they look like tall batteries mounted vertically on the board with metal type tops. If you run your hand across the top of them they should all be flat. Look for the two swollen ones and replace. The Value on the Capaictors should say around 1000uf at 10V. Replace with 1000uf at 16V. The reason you television is malfunctioning is that these caps are leaky.

Polariod FLM2601 Power Problem

I don't know why it isn't working, but I did feel I should say that if you do get it fixed I would change those capacitors out. The original capacitors that you replaced were high temperature electrolytics, rated to 105 degrees Celsius. the radio shack capacitors are rated at 85 degrees Fahrenheit maximum. As I believe that this common problem with these units is caused by those capacitors overheating, I would highly recommend you use replacements with an equivalent or higher temperature rating.
