Question about Polaroid FLM-323B Television

Cannot get digital OTA with antenna to work

We hooked up our antenna cable to the HDTV input which should be the ASTC tuner. The proper menu comes up but when you try to go into the HDTV tab to get to the channel scan mode the screen just goes to all blue and it says "no signal". We should be able to get it set up without a converter box, at least that's what we thought when we bought it.

    To get dtv stations I have to use the other antenna jack for the HDTV tuner menu to come up for scanning the channels. When I go to the menu for the auto scan my screen turns plain blue and it says "no signal" and then my controls get locked up. I have to shut off the tv to operate again.

    It appears your tv is not functioning properly, Here are a couple of things to try.


    1. Use the buttons on the tv control panel to scan for channels, not the remote.

    2. Unplug the tv for an hour to allow reset then try the scan again.
    Let me know the results.

HDMI input works ok. Hooked up external antenna. Did channel scan. It will only scan for analog channels. Has analog raster on screen. It has no information on menu page for digital channel scan.


do you have the air option in the scan menu see
http://tv.manualsonline.com/manuals/mfg/sanyo/dp42841.html
page 9 important fact cable digital gets wiped by air digital channels

You may be able to get around this via a digital hd tv decoder box and then have it on a hdmi input on the TV as a backup to the cable if you can't have both cable digital channels stored and aerial digital channels stored

JVC HD-56G886 tuner stopped working


My (unfortunate) guess would be the Tuner received a static discharge when you were changing the antennas... this time of the year is bad for static - if you're in a "Winter" climate.

Receivers have a very sensitive FET or MMIC amplifier right inside from the antenna connection to make it better for picking up distant stations.

However, this same "sensitive" amplifier is also prone to being destroyed by even a small static discharge... especially if the tuner had its power turned ON.

Sad to say, it's likely toasted... :-(
(I hope I'm wrong... but you have already tried all other possible solutions)

How do I get the HD on this model? Which cables/hook up should I use? I do not have a cable box or set top box but if these are required, please let me know. Thanks!


Your unit is HDTV ready but is not an HDTV. It is capable of displaying HDTV only through the component inputs. Your tuner is analog NTSC and will not receive HDTV or digital.

You could get an HDTV picture using a Blue Ray DVD and hooking up the component connectors from the DVD to the TV.

The only other way would be to get an HDTV tuner with a component output and hook it up the same way, component out to component in, and hook the tuner input to an off air antenna (receiving HDTV) or cable or satellite with HD signals.

Thanks for using FixYa and for the great rating.

I can't scan DTV channels on my vizio 52''


do you have antenna or cable? if you have antena hook directly to the coax, go to menu, TV, tuner and pick antenna and scan. If you have cable hook directly to your coax repeat the previous step but pick cable instead of antenna. Notice if you have a cable box, you will not need to scan for channel since it will be on channel 3, 4 or any other input you may use.

Have a vizio lcd tv . can not get any channels today with the switch over to digital. i use an antenna


Your TV probably does not have a digital tuner connected to the DTV/ANT input. Mine didn't. I had to connect the digital antenna to a digital converter box THEN go to the DTV/ANT input. Only then would it activate the DTV menu and allow me to scan for channels. If your TV worked fine with Cable TV connected to the input, it was because your signal was coming from the digital tuner in your DVR, or your cable provider was sending you an unscrambled digital signal (not likely).
I used a digital converter box I had purchased with the government $40 coupon back in 2009 but the resolution is only 480 and looks like a Monet or Renoir. Now I am shopping for a high quality tuner.

Can not get the image back on my astar hdtv when I choose the option


First check Tv menu comes on screen?
Connect DVD Player at any a-v input and confirm picture on tv. This will confirm that tv has no problem except in tuning circuit.

Now check Antenna / cable hooked up in RF input of tv properly.
Perform Auto-Search / Auto-Tuning / Auto-channel on TV menu and tune all available channels.
Still blue screen? means TV Tuner looks bad.

You will need to use a converter box if you want to receive digital signals from an antenna as the tuner is not the ASTC (HDTV) type. Once you get a converter or cable box you can come out of it with component video cables and go into one of the inputs in the back of the set.

Picture is snowy on every channel. I hooked up my playstation and set it to the correct channel but the screen display is the same. I tried using the menu and the menu comes up just fine. The menu goes on...


If one tv looks good and another one dosent look good or operate correctly then we know for sure that the problem is not the antenna. Now the menu comes up ok because the menu is injected after the tuner into the video curcuit from a osd or microprocessor. sounds like you could have a defective tuner or antenna block assy.
