Examine the electrolytic capacitors on the power supply circuit board. If they have vented, then replace them with premium quality units such as Panasonic/Matsushita from Digikey. Should restore your power supply immediately and eliminate this problem for many many years. Estimated life 5-10 years. About $10.00 in parts.

Best to replace ALL electrolytics on the power supply to ensure a long life TV.

Polaroid TV screen will not always come on.


Are you talking monitor rather than tv? I have an LG 22 inch monitor and the on off button is on the bottom, If I don't hit it right or just tap it, it won't turn off but flashes. Where do you have it plugged in? Is it with some other electronics, or right to the wall outlet? I'm really at a loss as to what your problem really is. Are you using the remote? One quick fix might be the battery's in the remote. If they don't have enough power, short or no signal will be sent to tv or not being able to decipher it.

TV screen Flashes blue and then shuts off.


When it flashes blue, are the flashes bright blue lines going across the screen with the picture in the background, if so, It sounds like the Blue tube or blue driver circuit is breaking down after a short period of time. If this is the case, the uPC that controls the set is detecting a large current drain on and is shutting the set off for protection, An engineers expert eye is required I`m afraid. Ian.

I have a 42'' polaroid. no pic no sound


If you replaced the metal box located on the backside of unit and nothing changed. Send it back for a refund because your problem is most likely the video control board located top center of panel. If you replace that and problem remains its the panel.

Samsung HCM4215W,shuts off.


Sounds like a short in the power wire, it takes about 10 to 15 minutes to warm up then shorts out and when it cools down you can watch for 10 to 15 more minutes before it shuts off again, you need to take it in and have the powercord replaced because this is very hard to do from home and one mistake can make the whole tv not work.
