Any colored lines running vertically or horizontally is a bad panel. Not worth repairing.

Tv codes


What problem are you having?

Try using Mitsubishi codes if the Polaroid codes for Direct TV. Mitsubishi code: 10178

Toshiba code 678 works for a Polaroid TV model FLM-1514B

Polaroid tv/dvd combo is 1991.
The dvd code equivalent of that code is dvd 1480.


0019 = NEC1, device code 4
0054 = RC-5, device codes 0 and 3
0150 = Mits, device code 71
0178 = NEC1, device code 4
0765 = NEC1, device code 64
1256 = NEC1, device code 64
1276 = $0057, device code 71

My tv is messing up...my tv is blacking out with verical lines running in and out then back to the picture any idea???


Look at the power supply first since it is easier to get to, look for burnt parts, bad capacitors, etc.

if nobody will repair the tv, then your probably better off buy a new one. yours could have the bulbs blow, there could be something wrong with the board or the power supply. i don't recommend working on a tv because they are very easy to mess up and do even more damage. for your next tv, get a higher rated brand like samsung or sony. they tend to be more reliable and are easier to fix/find somebody to fix

Directv remote


1) Use 2 new AA batteries in RC32 remote control;
2) Slide mode switch to "TV";
3) Press and hold the MUTE and SELECT keys at the same
time until the green light under the selected switch
position flashes twice, then release both keys.
4) Enter 9-9-1-1.
5) Press PWR button on TV.
6) Point the remote at the TV and press CHAN+. Repeatedly press CHAN+ until the TV turns off. Every time CHAN+ is pressed the remote advances to the next code and power is transmitted to the component.
7) Use the CHAN- key to step back a code.
8) When the TV turns off, stop pressing the CHAN+ key. Then, press and release the SELECT key. If the light flashes 3 times before the TV or component responds, you've cycled through all codes and the code you need is not available. You must use the TV remote control.
9) To verify the code, slide the MODE switch to the appropriate position.
10) Press and hold the MUTE and SELECT keys at the same time until the green light under the selected switch position flashes twice, then release both keys.
11) Enter 9-9-0. (The green light under the selected
switch position flashes twice.)
12) To view the first digit in the code, Press and release then number 1 key. Wait three seconds, and count the number of times the green light flashes. Write this number down in the TV owner manual.
13) Press number 2 for the second digit, 3 for the third digit, 4 for the fourth digit and 5 for the final digit.

To control TV volume from Directv RC32:
1. Press and hold the MUTE and SELECT keys until the
green light under the DIRECTV position flashes twice,
then release both keys.
2. Using the number keys, enter 9-9-3. (The green light
will flash twice after the 3.)
3. Press and release the VOL+ key. (The green light
flashes 4 times.)

No Picture in my 1 Year Old Polaroid FLM-2632 LCD TV


had the same problem. if you take out the power supply in the back of your tv ( easy to get to just a few screws in back to get to the box then a few more to get into it and some quick disconnects) you can take it to a local tv repair shop and they can remove the two green capacitors in the upper left of the circuite panel and place in 16v ones that can actually handle the power needed. do not try to do it yourself although the new capacitors only cost 2 dollars one wrong move and you burn the wires on the board. the repair man only charged me 54 dollars well worth it considering polaroid wanted to charge me 500 to fix a 2 dollar part that should have been recalled. they are in the busines to make money but if any of us did what they did wede be considerd con artist. final note since ive replaced the capacitors my tvs worked better than when i bought it
