    RED LIGHT, no power will come on, I only use this TV for my PS3, so it rarly gets used. I just moved and its been connected for a few weeks. I went to use it for the first time, and NOTHING. Im very unimpressed with this peice of ****. If you are not watching 720p or higher, it looks like garbage. My dad just got a 52" LG and it still looks great in 480i. If i have to watch 480 on this Polaroid 3211-TLXB it looks so crappy, i just watch a 27"CRT and it blows this peice of **** away, hands down. Bottom line, This ******* light issuse is then end, now i have a 32" LCD POS Paper Weight, WHAT THE **** DO I DO NOW? Thanks Polaroid.

My polaroid 3211-tlxb tv wont power on

Fault in the main power supply regulator board. Check and replace damaged component/s at its main power regulator [SMPS] section circuit. Contact any service technician. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Surf the site with patience. Pull up older posts.
It will be best to replace the power supply regulator board as card basis rather than making "Surgery" to it; which usually will make loss for both money and time. Even though you can make it right, it will cost around an amount equal to the cost of a new board; including the cost of (spare parts + service charge) More to say, most of the spare parts to it will be difficult to get from open electronic spare part market. This is true to most of the flat panel TV power supply boards; irrespective of its brand and screen size.

Polaroid 26inch lcd tvred standby light on but power wont turn on. I've unplugged the tv, changed the batteries in the remote. The tv stays with the red standby light only.

You need to open it up and checking the voltages in the power supply sections, you should have 5v (for logic circuits), 12v for sound, 24v for backlight inverter circuits. Look for bad caps with bulging tops in power supply also.

PLEASE HELP!! I have a Polaroid 4011 TLXB. In normal use the red LED remains on in "standby," when powered on the red LED becomes blue. Suddenly, (literally, overnight) the TV stopped responding to...

Look on the power supply for a plug that has an id of voltages, you'll see one that says PO, that means power on, to kick the power supply up. Put you DVM on that pin and press the power button and watch the meter, you should have high activity, if it comes up to lets say 3.4 volts and falls off then the main board needs replaced. Let me know how you do!
