Polaroid LCD TV not working with HDMI- says HDCP issue?

My TLX-04240B worked fine at 11am. At 2pm when I tried to access the TV or DVD (both connected with HDMI cables) it won't show anything. For the DVD I get a blank screen. For the TV (which is connected through a Series3 TIVO) I get a message saying that HDMI connection is not authorized "click select for more information" so I did. It says my TV is not compatible with HDCP Digital Rights Management Standards. When did that change? I've had the TV for 18 months and no problems. I followed the troubleshooting from TIVO's website which suggested checking in the settings if HDCP is enabled (it was not, but there's no option to enable it). It said to disconnect both ends of the HDMI cable, then reconnect. Tried that (with both cables) no change. The only other solution it gave me was using the RCA cables. That works. But I bought a 1080p TV for a reason- not to use the RCA cables.

Polaroid website has no suggestions. Any ideas?

3. Remote Control 4. Part 1 and then Part 3
I use it to Power On/Off and Volume control.

Replace both HDMI ports on television


I doubt you could replace just the ports. You would probably have to replace the whole board. I wouldn't spend the money.

How do you connect a polaroid lcd tv to a polaroid vcr/dvd combo?


does it have HDMI INPUT/OUTPUT? OR Audio video input/output? First you must have a cable for either of those two. HDMI (from the lcd tv) to HDMI (vcr/dvd combo).
audio/video input (from the lcd) to audio/video output (from the vcr).
hope this helps.

Polaroid TLX-04240B going to a black screen after running for 2mins. Any ideas on how to fix this?


open the black plastic panel and the aluminum panel which has 3 screws each in the back of the tv.
look at bottom left corner of top board. to the right of the red led light,
there's these four white small switches. turn the bottom two switches to "on" and tv should be working.

TV wont detect HDMI Devices except a pc.


Something is wrong whith the HDMI jack it's self, or the electronic switching is not sensing a signal is present. In either case the board that has the HDMI jack you are using needs to be replaced. Most all these boards are double printed, Multi-layered or both which prevents replacing the jack it's self. I do have a question though, do you only have on HDMI jack on the unit or do you have another one available.

Vizio vw42lf hdmi problem


The factory menu won't help you diagnose anything. If you are having issues on both HDMI ports, definitely check the cable and that the output works on the DVD player, try this on another TV if possible. If all else fails, call Vizio @ 1-877-MYVIZIO and they will send one of us techs out to replace the main A/V board, that should resolve your problem.
