Tip & How-To about Televison & Video

Polaroid FLM 373B black screen - no power fix

I followed stiv0's advice back in May 2009 with great success, however, the problem resurfaced in 7 months, which made me wonder what was causing the capacitor blowout to begin with. After trying different capacitors I came to the conclusion that the capacitors are not being blown out by high voltage; instead they are being blown out over time by HIGH TEMPERAURE. The solution was to permanently remove the metal back panel on the TV leaving only the plastic cover so the #$% TV would not overheat. I have not had to replace the capacitors since then. Hope this helps.
