Question about Polaroid FLM-3232 Television
I've had my Polaroid Tv for around 2-3 years now, haven't had a problem out of it till a few weeks ago.
I go to turn it on and the red light goes blue then goes red, I left it unplugged for an hour then it turned on and worked the whole day even when I turned it off and turned it back on.
Well me being stupid I turned it off the rest of the night. Go to turn it on again and it does the same thing (When I woke up), unplug it and plug it back in...Still not working. Does anyone have an idea of what is wrong? I know the screen works fine so it's not that, I thought it was the power supply but I need a second opinion before I take it into a shop.
You likely have a bad control box. Polaroid sold MANY of these TV's with bad parts. I searched online and finally found some contact info for someone in corporate. I basically stomped my feet and threw a fit until they agreed to do something. I have had the TV for 1 yr 9 mo when it started doing the SAME thing. If you call customer service, they will offer to send you a "discounted" replacement TV for $310 (refurbished) but you pick up the costs for shipping yours back, shipping the new one AND tax. Or they will sell you the part for $500 and then you have to pay a repairman to install the part.
My suggestion.....don't take NO for an answer. They finally agreed to send me a control box. I am sure it's refurbished and now I have to figure out how to get it installed. I also found a site online where a few people fixed it themselves for less than $30.
Good luck! I will never buy Polaroid again.....ever!
