How to Fix a Polaroid LCD TV Screen

A Polaroid LCD TV delivers its picture via DVD player or cable connection to your home or office. After setting up your device and using it, you might experience technical difficulties with power loss and picture quality. Navigating through a few steps of self-maintenance will have your Polaroid TV running smoothly again in little time. You can examine your TV's power cord for damage, rewire a DVD player connection, and adjust your Polaroid's backlight.
Difficulty:Moderate Instructions

    • Turn your Polaroid around so that the back is facing you, as a first step in correcting a power loss issue. Examine the length of the power cord from the back panel of the Polaroid to the wall outlet for damage, such as tears or rips. Replace the cord, if you see damage. Unplug the TV from the wall outlet and inspect the metal receptors (prongs) for dirt. If the prongs are dirty, clean them with a dry cleaning cloth. Plug a separate electrical device into the outlet and turn it on to confirm that the outlet is performing correctly. Plug the Polaroid TV back into the outlet, and try again.
    • Twist the Polaroid TV's back panel towards you so that the connected cables and jacks are easily accessible to you. If you're experiencing problems getting a picture from your DVD player, inspect the connection of the audio/video cables to your "Composite In" jacks. There are three cables in a standard audio/video setup: a yellow cable, a red cable, and a white cable. Unplug all three cables from their jacks to reset the connection. Insert the yellow-tipped cable into the "Video" port, which is yellow-colored to make matching the cables easier. Insert the white-tipped cable into the "L" (left audio) port and the red-tipped cable into the "r" (right audio) port. Perform the same steps on the audio/video cable out ports of the DVD player, and try again.
    • Raise the TV's backlight level, if you're having trouble seeing the picture. Push the "Menu" button (located on your remote control), and the TV setup menu will appear. Use the navigation buttons located on your remote control to scroll to "Image," and push "Ok" -- located within the navigational buttons on your remote control. A list of options will be displayed, such as "Contrast," "Hue," and "Saturation." Choose "Brightness" from the options. Use the four-way navigation buttons to raise the brightness (make your screen brighter and more illuminated) or lower the brightness (make your screen darker).

The TV electronics for the picture may have failed. Do you get any picture ever, like when you turn it on, or when you connect a DVD to it?
If you do then replace the scart cable with a good known brand. Cheap scart cables often do not have all the pins connected up.

I can't get tv to send sound to sound system


Having browsed the user manual I wonder if you plugged in the Sony BDV T57 Home Theatre System while the Polaroid FLM-2632 tv was powered down via the optical cable .
Then powered up the Sony BDV T57 Home Theatre System first and then powered up the Polaroid FLM-2632 tv
Maybe the Polaroid FLM-2632 TV has to detect that the Sony BDV T57 Home Theatre System is connected and powered up when the Polaroid FLM-2632 powers up. To activate its digital audio out ????
The note part about only being available only under HDTV (cable/air) mode. Might be the cause of your hassle also ?

You could try pressing the source button on the remote to see if that brings it up.

Also the TV may have got itself in a muddle. There will be a way to reset it to factory setting. If you can get into the TV's setup menu there ought to be an option buried somewhere to do that.
