Question about Polaroid FLM-3732 Television
The problem:Press the power button and the led turns blue, but nothing happens. Plug/unplug worked for a while. Then nothing. Polaroid diagnosed over the phone(had me hold a flashlight upward on the screen to rule that out) the control box charging me $225.00. Tech came, no fix. Promised to get back to me 24-48 hours. No. I had to call each time and they made an excuse. Its been a month and today they want to charge me for an LCD and give me $100. I told them no deal. They did the diagnosis over the phone! Bought caps myself and had tv tech to come check them out. He replaced 3 that were about gone, but no pic. He is trying to figure out...he still thinks it is something about the control box.
Turns out, I find the parent company 'Petters Group Worldwide' went bankrupt October 2008.

My FLM-3732 did the same thing yesterday. But I had a had time getting it to come on and it finally did.But when viewing with the analog tuner I could see some hum in the picture.The digital ones looked normal.
Today when I turned it on the LED went blue but then dimmed and slightly flashed/flickered.
On the power supply board there were 2 very small 1000 microFarad 10V capacitors that looked odd.The tops were slightly pushed up.
I pulled them off and they both read too low.Only about 200 microFards.
Replaced them both with a couple of 1000 microFarad 16V capacitors from the junk drawer.
Now it works normal again.
