Question about Polaroid FLM-3734B 37 in. LCD HDTV
Hello. I wanted to let you know that I read your posting on the Polaroid FLM 373B and decided to give it a try since you did such a killer job of describing the process. 1/2 an hour later my TV was better than when I got it. YOU ROCK!!!!!! The parts to fix it were about $3.50 for the 2 caps. It was too easy to believe!!! Thnak you so so so so so much! You saved me from buying a new TV and a ton of headaches with Polaroid.
I had the same problem as everyone else. The blue light would come on, but no picture. We would have to unplug and reboot several times to get a picture. The quality of the picture was going bad as well. yesterday, it wouldn't turn on at all. We followed the advise and changed to two capacitors, plugged the tv in and it turned on without a problem!! (you could see the capacitators were buldging) We will see how long this will last, but hopefully will buy more time for us. (we have never soldered before, but thought we didn't have much to loose, and it wasn't that hard!) It took less than 30 minutes and under $20 to fix vs the minimum of $250 polaroid wanted to charge us. If there is a class action suit, count us in!!!

Had the same situation as others, powered on blue light but nothing else, then unplug multiple times to get a picture. Finally nothing would work. Replaced the capacitors as was suggested and everything is fine. Installed Radio Shack #272-1032 1000mf 35v in place of the original 10v
