Question about Polaroid FLM-3732 Television
I have the 4034B too and don't know which caps to replace. Did you figure it out?
Or, how do you test the caps with a meter?
When I looked on the board, they all looked fine so I changed 5 of them chosen arbitrarily (the one that best matched the description on the website) but no success, I will try this week end to change the others (I did not have enough caps). I found a way to test them with a meter but it is hard and unreliable to do it when they are still attached to the circuit:
The best would be to have a meter that can test specifically the caps, but if like me you don't have one, use the Ohm-meter mode to charge them then very quickly switch to volt-meter (be careful not to choose a tension too high that would fry your caps). You should see a tension really quickly dropping if the caps is still linked to the board. I found this technique on the internet, I don't know if it is really reliable.
I will try on this week-end to change the caps of the other kind on the board then I will tell you if I got lucky.
By the way, a few weeks ago when I called polaroid they told me they were about to change their policy about their TV so I think you should check that before you decide to destroy it with an axe or get a new TV.
