When I plugg my Hicon television up to my power supply and turn it on, it takes roughly 5 mins for the power supply to turn on. Is there a problem with the power supply?

Yes you are having a power supply problem and the culprit might be the main filter capacitor. On opening you might notice it would have bulged out and might be leaking.You will have to get it replaced.

FLM-2601 will not power on

I have a 2-year-old FLM2601 that all of a sudden refused to power up, total black out. I searched the web and found the power unit seems to have a lot problems one form or the other. To keep it simple I decided to replace the whole power supply assy. I got the replacement part from "Best Buy Partserach". Part number: 6LM00220C0 (or Advent 667-L27M6-20C), about $90. I swapped the power board assembly, and everything work fine now, only hope this time it last more than 2 years…

It took a while to dismount the back panel, you need to get all the screws off, including those holding the bracket for I/O ports, the RF will remain connected by wire, but you can wiggle it through the opening when back panel comes off. I Also took the TV off the stand.

Good luck!

Polariod FLM2601 Power Problem

I don't know why it isn't working, but I did feel I should say that if you do get it fixed I would change those capacitors out. The original capacitors that you replaced were high temperature electrolytics, rated to 105 degrees Celsius. the radio shack capacitors are rated at 85 degrees Fahrenheit maximum. As I believe that this common problem with these units is caused by those capacitors overheating, I would highly recommend you use replacements with an equivalent or higher temperature rating.

Power problem - Polaroid FLM 2601

The Flm2601 is plagued with a poorly designed SMPS and needs to be replaced... The ONLY outlet selling those is Fox International and the PS model number is #MLT166A... I do have the manual for that PS but it won't do much good - it usually buldges several 16v caps when it goes then goes into a domino failure...
Good news is the supplies aren't expensive, I think the last one I bought was around $70.00 dollars and it's a plug and play.
