Question about Polaroid FLM-3232 Television

Polaroid flm-3232 locked or in sleep mode? Is that possible

First off let me just start by saying that I am new to this forum and up till now have just been a visitor. I'm having a problem with my polaroid flm-3232 lcd tv and I know this site is loaded with experts and hobbyists. So, here I am.
Here is a brief description of what happened.
Connected laptop to polaroid with vga cables. Then, switched from cable to VGA from input screen. Blue screen appeared with no signal message.
Then closed laptop cover and black screen appeard on polaroid with message in orange letters "not supported".
Grabbed remote tried to switch from vga to cable but polaroid doesn't respond. Manually tried via buttons on side panel still nothing. After battling and panicking for a few minutes I unplugged the polaroid from the wall waited 1 minute plugged it in again and nothing, tv will not turn on. No red light no blue light (dead).
(I unplugged and plugged it in four times) the 1 minute interval which I mentioned and then after 5 minutes 30 minutes and 2 hours. still nothing.
It's like the tv is locked or sleeping I don't know I'm just guessing. That is why I'm here. My wife and I are both flipping especially because a tv is not in our budget right now. I would appreciate anyhelp. thanks in advance.

    I'm going to need more help, that function (channel +) did not work, tried it with the remote and onboard the tv via side panel. It was worth a try, thanks.

Hi there!

I work in an electronics store and I've come across this problem before. The only solution that has ever worked for the people who call in or come to see us is pretty simple. You need to unplug your PC from the TV (if you haven't already done so), turn the TV on by using the "channel +" button. Some TV's when turned off at the wall will not turn back on again unless you press the channel + button. Give it a go and see what happens. Let me know if you need more help.

Also, it sounds like your laptop may not have been supported due to the wrong resolution being outputted through your VGA connection. When you get your TV turned on again I'll see if I can help you get them to work together,

Cheers and good luck!

    Sorry that my little trick didn't work for you. I've been doing some reading on the web about your model of Polaroid TV and have come across countless other complaints regarding the unit not turning on. To be honest it doesn't sound like that model is doing to well. Maybe your PC didn't have anything to do with the problem afterall. All the reports that I have read have ended up in the customer having to take their televisions back to the stores where they purchased them from or calling Polaroid for advice.

    I hate to say it, but if you don't get any lights coming on when you power up the unit it sounds like there's a fault that the manufacturer will need to look at. It may be worth while checking the AC adaptor as well. I hope your tellie is under warranty, and if not it's still worth getting a quote for repairs.

I have a red light and thats about it...i have a 32 inch polaroid and it just wont power up

In case of FLM-3232 this can be both the main board and the power board.

I'd say the odds are in your favor that it is the power board - this is the more common scenario.

If you test the board and find that it produces proper primary voltage, though, then the problem is in the main board.

This is also curable sometimes, but unfortunately at least presently we do not offer a repair service for it.

Hope this helps!
