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?

Mind you they are used but taken from good units.

If you get one remember to switch out the prom by the red LED if you get one from a different model such as the TLA-04011C

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.

I HAVE A 42" Polaroid LCD TV (TLX-04240B) that i

First, I doubt that the power supply and MB are "connected", so they likely lied to you. As far as parts go, you can get them on Ebay, probably for around bucks total for the power supply and MB. This is important, Just because the model number on the TV matches the model number on the part, it doesn't mean it is the right one...the manufacturers sometimes use different boards on the same TV's. So make sure you are looking at the numbers on the boards and that they match before you buy it. Honestly though, you never know what you are getting on ebay as far as used boards and power supplies go, by the time you pay for shipping ETC you are going to be probably 150 to 200 bucks into it...and it might not work, or it might work for a while then the used parts go out as well. Best Buy has a 43" sharp LCD TV, smart, built in Roku...for 269. You might be better off to spend the extra 50 to 100 bucks and just buy a new TV, and definitely better off buying a new TV than paying some scam artist 400 bucks to fix a TV. Either way, good luck!!

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.
It's very simple to fix the problem to everyone.
My tv capacitor was not the problem.
I hope this will help everybody.
