Polaroid Model FLM-3232 Television

I have a Polaroid Model FLM-3232 Television that is two years old (Serial No. C0600181910003696 ). This set does not turn on at all (no blue screens, it is as though it were never plugged in). I have a friend of mine who owns an electronic store. We first tried the capacitor repairs that www.fixya,com covered but the TV still did not work. Most of the TVs with defective capacitor were FLM-373B TV as covered by fixya,com (mine is a FLM-3232). My buddy even checked the fuse under where the 110V wire plugs in and the fuse is good. I contacted Polaroid and they felt it was a Control Box problem and they offered to sell me one for $210 but with no warranty.

I would like to know the defective component on my Control Box so that my electronic friend can replace it for far less than $210. It is probably not the capacitor as my electronic friend changed most of those out per above.

My polaroid flm 3232 is 4 years old when I turn it on I get loud screeching and and popping sounds plus the picture is a color pattern. Can you help me?


Same thing happened. I unplugged it and everything for a couple of days then turned it on. Went to the menu and put reset to default. The V chip was then activated. If that happens to you too try 8202.

Sound but no picture.


It sounds like it is the picture tube. The same thing just happened to me. The back of my television started smoking and then there was no picture.

The problem is with your "control box". I just went through this also. You didn't say how old your TV was. My TV was 1 year, 3 months, 26 days old when my control box went out. I finally got the number to Polaroid and called until I got help. (don't expect any help with their call center) They sent me a new control box and the TV works fine now and the box has a 90 day warranty. Unfortunately, if your TV is older than mine was, its unlikely they will help you. You can watch ebay for a unit, they come up regularly. You will need to know which one is the model version for your TV. Look at your serial number, the 4th and 5th characters tell you which version. If your model version is 00, 01, 02, 03, A1, 23 then the unit is: *909-KS0-GF371XAH. If it is 12, 13, A2 then the unit is: *909-TE1-GF378XCH. This info on the serial #/model version was given to me be a repair tech that had a control box for sale on ebay. I have not verified the information, nor did I have to use it, but it sounds accurate and he seemed knowledgeable. I hope this helps, good luck.
