Question about Polaroid FLM-3232 Television

Repair my Polaroid FLM-2601 by replacing capacitors/? for FIXYA

Hi there.  I'm tempted to try this because I like to piddle around with this sort of thing and am detail oriented, and your repair instructions are very precise. But I had one question: when I replace these capacitors will that solve my problem in the long run?  Or will I have to replace them again as this will happen again after awhile?
Do not be mislead by my Product choice in the Product bar.  This site does not offer the actual product Model (FLM-2601) but there are plenty of references to it. 

Thanks!  You can email me at zzz at tampabay.rr.com

Doesn't turn on


Pretty good chance the power supply board is bad. A number of capacitors will become leaky and you lose all power. Some techs still know how to do component Laval service but most just change the board $$$$

Re: Polaroid FLM-2601


I repaired mine the same way, I replaced the two defective 1000uf 35v capacitors and mine works as good as new. The capacitors are ruined by heat, as they are positioned at the top of the power supply board where all the heat is (a poor design, in my opinion). If you do this make sure that you use high temperature electrolytic capacitors rated at 105 deg. C. minimum. I used caps rated at 125 deg. C. hoping it will last a little longer this time.
