Question about Polaroid FLM-2011 Television

3 Answers

19 inch polaroid TLA-01911C

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?

    Forgive me as I am a novice at this still. By main board do you mean the Power supply board that I have out or the bigger board that is next to it?

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.

Element tv dark no picture


Hello,

This is a very common issue with that model. There are filter capacitors on the power supply board that fail and keep the back light power section from starting up correctly so you get no picture on the screen. The FLX-1910 uses the same power supply board of the Polaroid TLA-01911, below is a link to information showing how to repair this power supply board.

My Elements FLX - 2210 has lost the ability to


Hello,

This is a very common symptom of a power supply that is failing. There are parts called filter capacitors and when they start to fail they can't filter correctly so the power supply can't start. When you keep trying to power it up it will finally do so but the time it takes gets longer and longer as the capacitors get worse until one day it will not power up anymore. The TV uses the same power supply board, the 200-000-xxxxtltx as the Polaroid TLA-01911c TVs. Here is a repair guide for the Polaroid model that shows what to look for and replace on the power supply board to get it back up and running again.

PROB LEM WITH POLAROID TLA-01911C


Hello,

The white screen and nothing else usually indicates a failure of the filter capacitors in the power supply board. When these capacitors go out the voltages are not correct so the TV can not power up right. You can rebuild the power board by replacing the bad capacitors and this should bring the TV back to life. Here is a link to a repair guide for this power supply board.

Polaroid 19" TV TLA-01911C has no picture. Powers up, see logo


I had the same problem. I replaced 14 capacitors on the Power supply board. I used Panasonic FC series. You could look for swollen capacitors or ones that are oozing. For sure replace these. My set had capacitors that are known to cause problems so I replaced all of them even though I saw no swelling of oozing. Be sure you label all connections carefully when you disassemble.
