Question about Polaroid FLM-3732 Television

1 Answer

Power up fixed but still have scrambled colors

Hello All,

Over the last few months my FLM-3732 has had the power up problems that we quickly figured out how to work around. Then, we noticed the coloration on the monitor appears scrambled. All colors are there, but it looks like the colors have been inverted and/or scrambled. Soon after, it would not power up at. In the process of figuring out what was wrong, I found fixya (what a great place) and figured out how to fix the power up problem by replacing the two capacitors. This worked great, but I still have the scrambled image. My thoughts are that it must be somewhere on the input side because the poloriod logo and menu text look normal, but I'm not sure. Any guidance here would be great.

You will need to test some components at the tuner and check the tuner for any bad solder on it , although the tuner may be going bad testing the components around it may find the problem

Polaroid FLM-3732 Television turns on then off


A common problem with this television is the power unit. Some of the capacitors go out on them within 2 years. You can buy a replacement power unit for about $150 or if you know how to use a soldering gun you can purchase the capacitors for about $5 and fix the unit yourself.

I just fixed my Polaroid 3732 and it cost me $3.49. I would push the power button and the standby light would come on but the picture would not appear. After I changed the capacitors it starts right up.

Screeching sound and display of color bars with no picture


it is two 1000uf 10 volt capacitors on the power board. the tops of the
capacitors will look like they are bulging. total cost of parts around
five dollars. if you can use a soldering iron and have a half hour to
spare this will fix it .there are alot of polaroid customers that have had
this problem and fixed it themselves. just click on the follwing to see

My FLM-3732 did the same thing yesterday. But I had a had time getting it to come on and it finally did.But when viewing with the analog tuner I could see some hum in the picture.The digital ones looked normal.

Today when I turned it on the LED went blue but then dimmed and slightly flashed/flickered.

On the power supply board there were 2 very small 1000 microFarad 10V capacitors that looked odd.The tops were slightly pushed up.
I pulled them off and they both read too low.Only about 200 microFards.
Replaced them both with a couple of 1000 microFarad 16V capacitors from the junk drawer.

Now it works normal again.

The fix is posted here! I took my tv in to a repair shop, since I am not mechanically inclined to make the repairs myself. $75 later it works!!
