Question about Polaroid FLM-2601 Television

1 Answer

I have power supply in hand

I have looked over the ps unit over and over and over again and do not seem to find anything wrong. This is mind boggling people. Anyone know what caps or resister or whatever is wrong with this thing that needs to be replaced? I can do the work just cant see anything causing a problem. I get the red light when I power on.

I experienced a similar problem with three FLM 2601 power supplies (from work). The two large caps that have hot melt keeping them in place are the typical culprits. They are located at one end of the module near the x-former.
Radio shack has the 35v 1000u caps for about $1.40 each.
Hope this helps.

Baseborad heater doesn't stop working

There should be a thermostat on each unit, if not there should be a thermostat on the wall for it. There is always the chance that an installer or builder/landlord was too cheap to put one in. You can buy baseboard thermostats and put it in yourself if you can turn off the power. They can be purchased at a big box or other builders supply. If it is on 230 volts get the double pole version of the switch. It may be mind boggling for some to figure out where to put all the wires so you may need help from someone electrically inclined.

I hear two beeps when i conect power suply on my emachine t5212 model

Very sorry about your son.

If you can't find the real problem, you can always put that hard drive into another PC to get the files. If so, be sure to looking to a potential "jumper" setting on that drive for it to be recognized.

Lacie ED mini v2 won't start up.

I had the same problem twice, but it was the power adapters each time that were causing the problem. It wasn't the unit itself. Lacie replaced the power adapters and it worked fine.

Loss of power

I would start by checking for a fouled spark plug/wire. Also, check the fuel filter. It doesn't have to be good just because it is new. Could have a factory defect.

Yes you can replace the old defective power supply with the new atx but the problem is the size. It the size it fit to your computer nothing to worry because power supply now is almost the same output only the wattages changes.

Beeping noise and no power

The "cricket" sound you heard can mean any number of things:

1. A component in the power supply that sets the frequency failed, causing a high frequency (hence over-voltage) in the SMPS, which then also failed. The initial failure may have occurred in a small high-voltage capacitor in the power supply (around 160V or so rated)

2. A failed horizontal drive or vertical stage, which drew so much current that the switching semiconductor in the SMPS failed.

Note that such failures often occur like dominoes (one, then two, then three, and so on). Sometimes the fuse itself will not even blow out. The best thing to do is to first remove the line-output transistor and then replace the switching semiconductor(s), nearby zeners, capacitors, and fuse if blown. Then turn the unit on and check for about 105V on the collector terminal of the line transistor. If that's fine then turn unit off, replace the line transistor.

Of course the above procedure is only a guide; the precise steps taken will depend on your exact make and model. Also, if the above sounds mind boggling then rather take it down to your nearest repair shop. Good luck.
