Question about Polaroid FLM-3701 Television

Open Question

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?

SOURCE: Hook computer to ILO tv

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.

Ive retuned, re-set, unpluggest and plugged back in and i recieve no channeks still, been like this for months


What is your TV source? The Polaroid LCD-2000 only has a NTSC (analog) tuner. Most OTA stations switched to ATSC signals a few years ago and a converter box is required to watch the TV. (A few low power TV stations still broadcast in NTSC but you need to be fairly close to the transmitter to receive the channel.) If you have cable, check if they have migrated to digital cable (QAM for unencrypted channels). If that is the case, you'll need a cable box.

With a digital-to-analog OTA converter box, you can still lose station reception due to the signal strength cliff. Depending on your area, you may need an external antenna or to check the direction of the antenna. I know I have to rotate the outdoor antenna every so often. It shifts in high wind. Even if the antenna only moves 5 degrees, we will lose the signal for half of the stations.

I hope this helps.

I was av1, av2 before but now i can't access my lg 42'' flat screen A2


Hi happy,
This happens quite often due to current leakage from signal box.. Please continue with AV1. But Have your cable box or whatever signal box you are using for any current leakage so that AV1 remains safe. If you lose AV1 too, you may have to replace the main board.

I have a dell studio 540 desktop, I need to restore to factory settings but my monitor will not stay open. It opens for a few seconds then immediately goes into power saver mode and turns off, how can


I see two things here, but need clarification;

1) Monitor goes to Power Saver Mode, then turns -> OFF?

Sure that monitor didn't go into Standby Mode?

2) Why are you performing a restore back to factory settings?
Pick up a virus?

Primer;
The monitor receives a signal. A video signal. The video signal comes from the computer.

If the monitor is NOT receiving a video signal, then the monitor will state No Signal.
This is for older monitors.

New monitors do not state No Signal anymore.
It's Power Saver Mode, or Sleep Mode.

If the monitor is truly OFF, the Power On button will Not be lit up.
Or the Power On LED light on the monitor.

Monitor power on LED is lit, or Power On button is lit?

Monitor is not receiving a video signal;

Use a monitor cable from a KNOWN to be working monitor, for a temporary test.
OR,
Use a Known to be working monitor, and it's monitor cable.

Need to find out if monitor cable is good.

Monitor cable checks out good?

Then problem is computer.

The two leading issues with desktop computer failure, is;

1) Computer is dirty inside
2) Power Supply inside computer is bad.

Please post back in a Comment.

I have question, can I have a PC display on TV through VGA cable only I mean by three (Green Signal, Red Signal and Blue Signal) PINs of VGA cable?


Yes you can, but you will need a sync box for the computer signal to be formatted to the correct signal for a tv.

Hi ,iam trying to connect a digtial converter(rca) to a dawoo dtq27u4sc 27'...i read your info.what kind of transformer(if any) do i need.. ? iam using the 3 prong av cabel hook up at back of tv = av1...


OK, let mesee if I get this right, you have a digital TV tuner box that picks up the digital TV signal off the AIR? And this tuner box has 3 RCA jacks on the back (Red:Right channel audio output, White: Left channel audio output, Yellow: Composite video output)?
If the above are corrects, then all you have to do is to connect those cables to the AV1 (if AV1 is for the compoite video and analog audio input). No transformer needed.
Please clarify.

My samsung 940N acts like a florescent tube, tries to start and doesn't


Use the self test feature.. follow the steps..

1. Turn off both your computer and the monitor.
2. Unplug the video cable from the back of the computer.
3. Turn on the monitor.
If the monitor is functioning properly, you will see a box in the illustration below.
This box appears during normal operation if the video cable becomes disconnected or
damaged.
4. Turn off your monitor and reconnect the video cable; then turn on both your computer and the
monitor.
If your monitor screen remains blank after using the previous procedure, check your video
controller and computer system; your monitor is functioning properly.

Warning

The Power supply inside the monitor can be hazardous and donot open the monitor while power on.

Donot work with the monitor when it is open and the power supply is on.

If there is something wrong with the input signal, a message appears on the screen or the
screen goes blank although the power indicator LED is still on. The message may indicate
that the monitor is out of scan range or that you need to check the signal cable.

50" Vizio Plasma reads "No Signal" on all inputs?


Well, your TV is still under warranty. That's the good part.
The only thing I can recommend without voiding the warranty is leaving the TV unplugged for 30min. That way, the TV can reset itself and hopefully correct the problem.

If that doesn't solve the problem, it's time to use the VIZIO warranty.
Here's contact info if you need it.

XO Vision GX-1581 No Signal


It looks like you've narrowed it down to a settings issue. If it is saying "No Signal" while on AV2, then you need to switch to AV1 where your video signal is. A remote might be available online from XO Vision (www.xovision.com) directly or on E-bay. You might also be able to find a local dealer of XO Vision from their website. One quick fix you can try....since the monitor has 2 video inputs and is stuck on AV2, you can simply get video by unplugging the video input on AV1 and plugging it into AV2. Hope this was helpful.
