Question about Flat Panel Televisions

1 Answer

Inoperative LCD TV

I have a Visco Model VSC-37V1 LCD TV, Serial #64437-102033. It began to fail gradually over a 2 or 3 day period. It was having trouble turning on. Pushing the Power button would turn the power light from Red to Blue (normal) but the LCD backlight wouldn't come on unless the power-up process was repeated several times. Eventually it stopped working completely. Now when the set is plugged in the Red power indicator light comes on and pushing the Power button will change the Power LED from Red to Blue (normal). However no backlight comes on and there is no sound or any normal operation. Pushing the power button at this point will not turn the set off (power light from blue back to red). You must unplug the set and then the process can be repeated but there is no normal operation. I have swapped the control board in the set with another know working control board and the symptoms are the same so the control board is not the problem. All power supply voltages have been checked and are normal. Any idea which board is the culprit here? I was referred to you by Nathan at shopjimmy.com. Thank you for your help.

My tv keeps flickin on and off. sometimes the remote works and sometimes it dont.what can i do?


Hello Malcolm,

That model is sold under several different names but the same model number. These units are well known to have issues with the power supply board and this can cause the exact symptoms you are having. The power supply board can easily be repaired, you just need to replace the defective capacitors on the board. Here is a link to a repair guide for the Visco TV that is the same as your Polaroid model. The repair guide shows what to look for and replace on the power supply board to repair it. I hope this helps.

I have a VISCO 32' tv & lost the remote. Model # VSC-32V1. I need a remote to use to get to the HDMI area. I tried a universal but it only turns it on & does channel.


Check the operation manual and note down the model number and go and fetch it from any electronics shop nearby. These are available freely now in the market.

My lcd element FLX-3711B dont turn on.. I plug the cord cable and only flashing front red light? Whats the problem?


Hello,

The Element FLX-3711b TV is the same unit as several model of Polaroid and Visco TVs. They are all made by the same company just labeled fr different brands. The flashing power light is a very common problem and is caused by a failure of the power supply board. The capacitors on the board short out and this causes the board to not power up correctly. Here is a link to a repair guide for the Visco TV that is the same as the Element FLX-3711B so the information will be the same for both units. The repair guide shows the parts that will need to be replaced on the power supply board to rebuild it.

TV was working fine till Friday 29 Jan 11. Went to turn it on screen was dark blue,but sound was on, after about 10min the screen went to bright blue then the picture came on. Saturday the same thing,...


Hello,

The problem you are having is the power supply in the TV is failing. When you try to power the unit on you get on power or a slow turn on. It also can explain the problem of not running at full 1080p resolution because the higher the resolution the no power is required to operate the TV. Check out the article that explains the problem and how to repair it.
