    I really do not know who sands 2499 is nor where they got their degree!
    Don't mean to sound rude but there is NO TUBE inside of a DIGITAL TV ???
    The screen is driven by electronics and chips unlike the monitors of yester year ???
    I encountered a problem with my POLAROID 15'' HDTV while using it as a secondary monitor as well as continuing to have Time Warner Digital CABLE hooked to it.
    It is now DEAD.
    A friend who lives about a mile from me had a POLAROID 19' HDTV which was also hooked to Time Warner Digital though I do not believe she attempted to use it as a computer monitor and it too is LIFELESS.
    Either the High Def Digital system that Time Warner uses did not Play nice with the Polaroid HDTVs internal processors of there is a fault within the TV's processing system or it did not play nice with your computer.
    Could be a virus.....
    Get a new Electronic Board from the POLAROID Service Department and get a friend who knows just a little about electronics to install it for you. It really isnt too complicated as there are but a few wire harness's that have to be unplugged.
    The casing is really more complicated to take apart than it is to replace the board..
    Or buy a new tv.

After i power my polaroid tv on the screen shows for about 3 seconds then goes black what causes that


Its a Lcd so if it stays on turn off all the lights (we want a dark room) and with flashlight look carefully at the screen to see if you see a faint image of a picture there or not.

Tv turn on no picture


If the sound still works normally but the screen is dark then I would suspect the inverter for having the issue. If you dont have sound either then I would check both the power board and the main board.

No light at the sides of the monitor.(led) The monitor is very dark , but still there is video.


Dark screens are usually the result of a broken backlight tube - most likely impact / shipping related. Being the 15" screens on these computers are pretty darn cheap (eBay's your best bet), I'd buy a used screen and replace it. Target price: under $40.

Polaroid 15" HD Widescreen LCD 1511-TLXB, turn on, stays on for about 30 seconds to 1 minute and then screen goes black, no sound, no menu


Do you have to turn it back on with the remote after this?

If so, then you may have set a timer by accident through the menu system.

More information would be required.

I am trying to connect my laptop to the Polaroid LCD TV, as i would like to use the TV monitor as a computer monitor (my laptop monitor is broken). So I connect the correct wire to correct places, however...


The simple patch that I found (same problem) was to start by using any old monitor that I could borrow to set up my Dell Laptop.
After getting the Laptop booted on a regular monitor I right clicked on the desktop and went to properties then to the settings tab.
Here I found the dual monitor settings (#2 will usually be dis-abled by default.)
Click on #2 monitor and set the resolution to the lowest number (800 x 600 works well)
Then I clicked on "make this monitor my primary monitor"
As soon as I clicked apply the PC Windows screen appeared on the Polaroid TV screen

Earlier I had set the secondary monitor as "extend this screen to this monitor"
This also worked but I had to "drag the current screen to the right all the way off the
"borrowed monitor" until it appeared on the TV screen. The mouse pointer will be there also.
At first it took a little getting used to but in a few minutes I was up and running.
Hope this helps your situation
