Question about Polaroid FLM-2632 Television

1 Answer

Bad Cable Input

I just purchased a used Polaroid 26" LCD HDTV. I went to hook up a basic cable line to the television. The Tv works and I am getting cable channels, but the problem is the picture is really fuzzy and really unclear for almost every channel. I know that standard definition won't look good with a high definition tv. I was thinking that the tuner in the tv is bad or possibly need a new VHF line. What do you think the problem is and how can I fix it? Thanks

    Ok I will try to the DVD Coaxial cable to RCA. Im pretty sure all the other outputs work. I tested both composite inputs with my xbox 360. But if it is the tuner and board, How much do you think it will cost to replace? Thanks alot for a response.

    i also bought an used 26" Polaroid LCD HDTV and i hooked up my basic cable straight from the wall coax to the air/cable input on the Polaroid and all the channels look extremely fuzzy. I tried different cables and it has not changed. I hooked up my ps2 to the rear audio/video input and it works just fine. My question is if my air/cable (coax) input is bad, is there a way i can get it to work using audio/video wires?

Try using your RCA imput to see how the picture looks compared to the tuner picture,is possible your tuner imput is bad,make sure the conector is not loose,the overall picture should look different but not fuzzy all over,using a dvd picture thru the aux (rca)imput should show you the difference.If the conector is loose only it could be repaired but if it is solid the tuner might be bad and it will need to be replaced along with any board it might be mounted to.Let us know how it goes or if you need more information.

I have a Polaroid 26"

It is a bad tuner, the tuner needs changed or the tuner module and that will take care of your problem.

I can't get tv to send sound to sound system

Having browsed the user manual I wonder if you plugged in the Sony BDV T57 Home Theatre System while the Polaroid FLM-2632 tv was powered down via the optical cable .
Then powered up the Sony BDV T57 Home Theatre System first and then powered up the Polaroid FLM-2632 tv
Maybe the Polaroid FLM-2632 TV has to detect that the Sony BDV T57 Home Theatre System is connected and powered up when the Polaroid FLM-2632 powers up. To activate its digital audio out ????
The note part about only being available only under HDTV (cable/air) mode. Might be the cause of your hassle also ?

source from
? Connecting to Audio Receiver:
Use an audio cable to connect the audio receiver's audio LINE IN jacks to LCD TV's
AUDIO OUT jacks. ? Connecting to Digital 5.1 Sound System:
Use an optical cable to connect the audio amplifier's OPTICAL IN jacks to LCD TV's
Use a coaxial cable to connect the audio amplifier's COAXIAL IN jacks to LCD TV's
Note: Above mentioned function is only available under HDTV (cable/air) mode.
? Connect all AC power sources, before turning on the power switch of the LCD TV or
other connected equipment.
? Press the button on the remote to turn on the LCD TV."

LC-26DA5U 26 in. HDTV-Ready LCD Television: i connect a hdmi cable 2 my hd cable box - the pic...

The cable box needs to be set to send different signals when using hd tv and standard tv. Usually a good setting would be 720p in hd and 480p in standard. The tv is working fine it is the cable box sending the signal. If you have another hdmi source such as a dvd player you may hook that up to show the tv is working just fine.

I just purchased this tv. I had no trouble hooking up the satalite cable box but When I hooked up the dvd player the picture is only in black and white. How do I fix this?

Are you using component video (red/blue/green) rca jacks, or composite video input (yellow) rca jack? You need to match the color but watch out and do not get confused with the red and white RCA for audio.

Can't get HD channels selected on tv. Tried auto search with HDTV port connected and the menu selected to HDTV

Hello, the HDTV input is what you would use if you were not using a cable box.
You should connect your cable from the wall to coaxial input on the cable box, and connect an hdmi cable from the hdmi output on the cable box to the hdmi 1 input on your tv and then switch the tv to that input.

How do i get on the HDMI input channel?

Hello Jeff. I just have a basic question for you. Was the Blu Ray player turned on when you first plugged it into the tv? TV's are becoming so complicated that they are becoming less user friendly. Try setting your tv to the first HDMI input using your tv remote's input button. Then unplug the HDMI cable from the tv, make sure the player is turned on then plug the HDMI cable into the left most input if horizontal or top input if vertical. Hopefully if you do that and have the input selected, it should work for you.
Also: Whi9le attaching the cable, I find it helpful to have it in a position where I can see the tv, because when a device hooks up the screen usually flashes or turns blue or something similar.

Hope this helped

There is an input imbalance. Either try connecting your cables to different inputs on your TV, or try connecting to different outputs on your DVD player. (Only worry about the yellow video cable bit initially). Alternatively, try a different cable type; you'll have some ins and outs that don't use RCA connectors.
