Question about Polaroid 15'' HDTV Monitor FLM-1511

Video screen will not stay on

I have to turn the power off and back on several times before the video screen will stay on. The audio continues to work each time but the screen goes black. At first it would stay on after 3 to 4 tries, Now it is taking about 30 cycles before the video will stay on. I cant take it any more. Is it worth looking for a repair location, is this a problem that other people are having. Is this just a power supply problem?

    O am using it as a tv so the input is still working, but just goes black. If I turn it of and then back on the picture will stay for about 5 seconds and goes black. Dont know why I have kept turning it of and back on this long, bet it has taken more times to get it to stay on. Once on it will work all day.

    When you lose the picture, does your screen say "No Input Found" or something to that effect, possibly image or text that tells you that the monitor is still functional? This text only has to be on the screen for a fraction of a second to better diagnose the issue. Or is the screen completely black without any sign of ever turning on, other than the audio playing?

Solution: Replace cap. Radio Shack sells a 1000uF, 35V cap for $2. This will work.

Why did the cap go bad? The cap is too close to a heat sink and over heated.

What does this cap do? This cap sends a signal to an IC which keeps the monitor 'on' after the power switch is pushed. When the cap is weak, AC ripple voltage is applied to the IC and it sends a signal to shut the monitor off.

Opening the Monitor: These monitors are difficult to open.

The two plastic pieces snap together and must be pried apart with a flat screw driver.

After removing the stand, you need to insert a flat screw driver at the bottom of the screen where two slots are located. Then work the screw driver around until the two plastic pieces are separated.

Remove the cover plate and unscrew the push button circuit board.

Unplug the monitor cords from the driver board and remove the screen.

Unscrew the mounting screws from the power supply board and remove.

You will need to pinch the plastic support in the middle of the board to remove.

Cap Replacement:

Cap is located near a copper heat sink and the value will be on the side of the cap. It will be bulged up on the top. You will see burn marks on the board surrounding the cap. Unsolder the cap.

Install the new cap and solder. Make sure you connect + of the cap to + marked on the board.

Be careful not to solder across joints.

Keep leads long so you can bend the cap as far away from the heat sink as possible.

Reassemble monitor and turn on.

This should solve the problem.

Do you have to turn it back on with the remote after this?

If so, then you may have set a timer by accident through the menu system.

More information would be required.

Have you inspected or changed the lamp? Lamps can slowly break down and not function. Sometimes they will show obvious signs of internal breakage and other times are cloudy or a the base of the center glass filament there will be a bubbling of the glass there. Another problem is there could be an excess of dust accumulated and need to be cleaned out with a vacuum. At any rate, I would recommend changing the lamp first if you haven't done so. There is a access door to the lamp. Some are on the back and some on the front. If the lamp is good the next part is the power supply which will have some bulged capacitors on it keeping the set from starting up normally. If you know how to solder the capacitors are easily identified by a bulge on the top of them. If you cannot solder then changing the power supply is a hand which can be done by unplugging and plugging up another. Do a search online with the model number or call Encompassparts.com at 1-800-638-3328 for price and availability giving them the model number and mentioning the power supply

Before we start taking things apart, lets try your simple remove power plug routine and power system back up. Also, please try your unit on a few different channels to see if your problem continues on each channel. Your Main Board, Power Board, T-Control Board are suspected problems at this time. Press and hold the power button for about 15 seconds, the unit should power down by itself after you have powered it on. If it does not, then do not be concerned. Let me know if the problem continues. The first link below will bring you directly to the troubleshooting guide if you need to continue forward with the same error.

Computer Power comes on, shows compaq first screen, then everything stops. press esc, F10 or F12 and nothing happens. just continues to show the compaq screen. Any suggestions?


Try unplugging everything you can from the computer. Only leave keyboard, monitor, and power cables connected. Then try to turn on again. If computer boots now, then start adding peripherals back one at a time, rebooting each time. when you get the hang, there is your suspect peripheral.

Also, is the monitor itself having issues, or is it the computer? Look at the power light on the monitor, is it staying green, or is turning back to same color when it is in standby state?

if you know anything about the tv, take off the back and remove the power supply board. Reflow or resolder the solder points, takes like 2 hours, but is well worth it as my tv works fine now. make sure to use rosin core solder and good luck
