Polaroid Tlx-01511c dead set

A friend of mine has this polaroid lcd tv that just went off and wont power up again. It is only 8 or 9 months old and hasnt had much use, but Polaroid will not honor warranty because my friend received tv as a gift and doesnt have purchase receipt. Any Ideas as to what the problem could be. I would like to fix set for her since she cant afford to keep buying tv's that dont even last a year.

    No lights come on, quick slight static sound in speakers when plugged in. I took out power supply board and the 2 fuses check to be alright. Dont see any bulging or leaking caps. I havent checked transistors or other components as of yet.

    I checked the power supply voltages at the pins and get +5 and +12, but I dont think P/on pin is getting a signal or voltage to turn it on. I tried both set on/off switch and remote. Hard to trace board with out schematic. Any one know route the signal for p/on takes or any ideas where to look?...

I just took one of these apart right down to the LCD. The two bulbs in the LCD were cracked. When you turn it on it crackles a little then the light goes out. I tried to find bulbs online but no luck yet. Hope that helps.

Does the blue light come on? If so then its caps in the power supply that needs changing, 1000uf/16v replace all of them.

The only thing you can do is look inside the TV for blown fuses. But, after that. it's hard to tell what's really wrong with it. And taking it to someone to diagnose the problem will cost more than the 15" TV worth. At the moment, I can't find a Service Manual for that TV yet. But, if I had to guess, the power supply board went bad. Cost about $80.00 at It's only a guess.
Sorry I can't help you more.

Change battery and see. Look for any jammed buttons on the remote and/or on the control panel of TV. If you have removed the plug, when the TV was in standby mode, sometimes the system controller could not have got time to reset. Try using the control panel buttons and see whether the TV responds. If not, switch it off manually, switch off power and remove plug and retry after 48 hours.

Polaroid TLX-01511C screen goes dark after power on

If the screen is still glowing, then you may have either dead T-CON board or the main board. Dead backlight inverter board will not get any glow on the front or the back of the LCD panel.
First, look at the screen in darkened room to see if you can see any slight glow from the screen, if it does, then the problem can be the T-CON (not getting the 12vdc) or the main logic board not feeding the signals to the T-CON board.
if not, next place to check will be the power supply module, make sure it has 24vdc which is required by the backlight inverter to work, the reason for not having 24vdc can be from bad DC filter caps (leaking/bulging top, high ESR) or short circuits in the inverter board which will cause the 24vdc supply to go into shutdown mode, so you may have to disconnect the power cable that feed the inverter board to see if the 24vdc will work without the inverter board hookup, you will need to apply about 3~4 amp of load to the 24vdc to make sure it can handle that. There are fuses on the backlight inverter boards also. So there are some troubleshoot you will have to do to find out the causes of the problem you are having.

Lost audio on channels 25 and 40

Check your sound settings. It's possible that you have settings set to something those 2 channels can't handle. Interference on those 2 channels could also kill the sound.

Polaroid LCD tv - model TLX-04244 Shuts itself off...

The solution at this point would be to get the power supply repair since new boards are not longer being manufactured. In about 95% of the time if the LCD doesn't power up or turns OFF by itself or need to be unplug for some time to make work again; those are the symptoms of a dying or defective power supply.
If your TV is less then a year old, still under manufacturers warranty.
