Question about Polaroid FLM-2011 Television
I bought 2 of these at Walmart and they are not under Warranty anymore and do not have power at all anymore. The TVs are a little over 16 months old. The standby light does not come on so there is no power at all to these units. I tested the power plugs that come with the TVs on my bigger Polaroid and they worked fine. My 37 inch Polaroid had the problem with the capacitors gone bad so I replaced them and it is working fine now. I took apart the 19 inch and did not see any visible signs of bad capacitors in this one as it was so obvious in the 37 inch. Is there something else I should look for or test? Jon McElroy
Check to make sure that all cords are connected and that no shorts are there. They could cause the tv to go into automatic shut down mode to stop it from catching fire if it a short. Try doing a reset by leaving it unplugged all night an plugging it back up and see if that works.

The capasitors can also leak in the bottom or corrode inside. Check the fuses on the power board. I suspect the powerboard is where the problem is.
you can ask http://www.shopjimmy.com/searchparts.cfm?make=Polaroid&t=model&m=TLA-01911C if they have the powerboard, you could replace the whole board if it doesn't cost too much.
also it has been reported that this model has alot of power board failures. I'l see if I can find more sources for parts.
