Polaroid TLU 03711C - HD LCD flatscreen TV 37

I have got a Polaroid TLU 03711C - HD LCD flatscreen TV 37".

every time i turn the tv on, its make a high pitch buzzing sound, this will continue for up to half hour slowly fading out. if i turn my tv off, then back on this will happen again, every time.

when i have turned the tv on and its is buzzing if u turn down the volume, the buzzing will remian, however if u put the tv on mute the buzzing will dissapear.

i think this mite be related to my xbox 360, altho if nothing is plugged into the tv this will still happen.

I think it mite be related because if u have left the tv on for a hour and the buzzing has died down, then u put the tv onto HDMI1 (xbox channel) u can still hear the buzzing.

Also if i try and turn my tv onto channel HDMI1 (xbox) within the first minute of turning it on the tv crashes and i have to turn it off at the plug.

I have bin told i need a replacement 'main board' is this the case?

and what is the actual problem? and is it related to xbox? (altho when i didnt have xbox plugged in, problem persisted!)

thanks

    I have the same exact problem! also sometimes it wont turn on unless i unplug and retry

    There is a high pitch beeping / buzzing tone which eventually fades away after about 5 minutes. The sound stops when the TV is muted but it doesn't make it go away, it simply comes back when the sound is turned back on. I found a quick solution is to turn the sound up on the TV which sort of overrides the tone, but this isn't really a work around.


    I have read that it's something to do with a capacitor which has blown, however I have no ideahow to replace such an item so I will be calling local TV repair firms.

What to do when your Toshiba 55TL515U powers on, works fine for a few hours, then suddenly turns off, and then continues to click as if it is turning on and off again?


Fault at its main digital board. Short circuited component/s at it. Contact any service technician; or the authorized service center. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Pull up older posts. http://electronicshelponline.blogspot.com/ In most cases, the main board might have to be replaced. If so, a software [firmware] update too might be necessary.

I was playing a game on my polaroid tv and the screen went black on me. How do I fix it?


Sounds like The main power supply regulator section circuit fault. Either it will be a separate board, or the part of main 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. Pull up older posts. http://electronicshelponline.blogspot.com/ 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.
Search the site by type in the "brand name" to your device; in the "Search box at the top right of the display window of the Homepage" to get gathered related posts.

I have sound but no picture on my tv


This is a popular question. Most of the time you either need to make sure all connections are not loose or just need to turn off your tv and receiver and unplug. Wait for 1 minute then reboot.
I recommend this short video as it walks you through some diagnostics for other possible problems.

No Video Or Sound - Stand By Light Flashes 5 Times


If the tv was made before December 2008, there is a capacitor settlement from a class action lawsuit by Samsung. Supposedly (at no charge) they will send a repairman to replace the capacitors.

I can't get my Comcast remote control to sync up with this sylvania 32in HD tv. I tried every code in the Comcast DVR manual under sylvania tv's and nothing, I would love a fix to this problem.


the tv is likely to be generic in nature i.e. parts used by many manufacturers. if you knew what tv builder actually designed it you could find the code. does the remote have a search feature if so use it, it should find something that operates most tv functions eventually

TV just flashes different colors


You have entered a diagnostic colour test. With the TV powered on, hold the 'Menu' & 'Enter' together, then press the power button. Problem resolved
