Polaroid FLM-3701 "No Signal" on AV1, AV2 & S-Video

The monitor powers up correctly ("Polaroid" opening screen) but will not accept a video signal from the cable box. All I get is a "No Signal - AV1 Source" (or AV2, or S-Video Source) box in the middle of the screen. The audio seems to be working fine. I've tried different cables and the box works fine with another TV. The component-in connections (Y,Pb,Pr,Audio L,R) both work correctly with a DVD player as well as the VGA-in from a computer. I don't have anything with a DVI-D output to check the DVI-D input. Any thoughts?

The best way is to buy a graphics card with HDMI output. This will dsplay your PCs desktop the way it's supposed to look, and will appear much sharper and clearer than using vga, as the output is digital to begin with. If you don't need to play the latest games, you get get one for around $30. Add a wireless mouse and keyboard and you'll be able to control everything from your armchair. You can also then use your PC to download and watch films etc from the internet..

It looks like your power supply might not be providing enough current to get the LCD to power up. This LCD needs about 3 to 4 amps to work properly.

You may be having a problem with the parental control, This control has a video lock. You may need to unlock this to get the video working again. If you have your owners manual, you can find the instructions for unlocking the video on page 41 of the manual under parental settings. If not you can find a pdf copy of the manual on this link to Polaroids customer support website If this does not help you, the customer support telephone number for Polaroid is 1-866-289-5186. They should be able to tell you how to get the functions of your television working again. I hope this information helps you with your problem.

Diagram where fuse is in the polaroid flm-3701

There is a fuse on the power supply board. It is labelled F1. It is a small cylinder near the AC connector. The F1 fuse is 5A 250V. How ever, capacitors are more likely to fail on this television.
The Polaroid FLM3701 has a problem with capacitors failing on the power supply board. If enough caps go bad, you will get no power. Not even a power light. Any capacitor that is swollen is bad.

Is there a coaxial input on this tv?

No because it is a monitor only; meaning it does not have a TV tuner of its own.

Where is the fuse in a 3701 LCD Polaroid TV/Monitor

In the Polaroid FLH-3701, the fuse is located on the power supply board, next to the AC power connector. It is a small black cylinder. It is labelled F1. Value is 5 amp, 250 volts.
A fuse does not blow for no reason. Most commonly a fuse will fail because of a short someplace on the board. I have this same TV. The fuse blew. The reason was transistor Q6 had shorted. There are two identical paired transistors on the output side. Q6 and Q7. They are both Infineon 11N60C3 MOSFET transistors. Check those for a short. There may be a burnt smell.
More commonly, this TV will fail because of bad capacitors on the power supply board.

Cant see Picture

Nope. The AV inputs except a composite video signal that is either NTSC or PAL. You will need to convert the PAL signal to NTSC.

No Signal

You will have changed the video/audio input, on your tv, it should be an input button on remote. The signal will either be on AV1, AV2, AV3 Component or HDMI.
