There is some other shorted component at the circuit board. It might not be due to a bad capacitor, as you thinks. Contact any techinican to confirm it.

    The capasitor is definitely bulged. Do I just pull it out?

SOURCE: 37" polaroid lcd tv won't turn on

First, I am no tech, this is at your own risk! I have a flm-373b which is out of warranty 15mths. A nice paper weight. Plug it in, blue light, no picture or audio. So I got the service manual and started taking it apart. Pulled out the so called control box and at the top is what appears to be some sort of power inverter board. I looked closely and saw that there were 2 capacitors that looked damaged. One was bulged and the other looked like it had popped. They were side by side, green and marked 1000Uf 10v. I took the board to work with me and unsoldered the capacitors and very carefully replaced them with 1000Uf 16v caps. This was just a crazy chance. When I got home I put everything back together, ran 2 extension cords to the back porch and plugged it in. The tv came on faster than when it was brand new. Now I have waited 3 weeks to post this, just in case my house burned down, but the tv is still working great. Again this is at your own risk. Polaroid is not helpful and they want you to spend more money to correct their problem which will probably not correct anything. I really do wish you luck with this or with putting up with polaroids BS.

I have the same problem, very unreliable, just tried solution posted on this board and it worked. Turn on - while LED Bliinks push the channel button - also tap back a few times not too hard not too soft - possible problem(s) here, as suggested on tyhis board, capacitors (sic?), poor soldering connection, (In which case tapping might make it worse, but if you have no pic, nothing lost nothing gained), good luck, repair work suggested at about 200 bucks on this board.

Yes I think that would be the problem, aswell as some dry (cracked solder joints). A bad cap is usually bulged on the top and looks like this:

Hi,
Symptom shows that Mani Board is bad in your TLX-03210B Polaroid TV and need to be replaced. I do not see problem of capacitors in power supply board. Problem seems in system control section of TV that is located on main board.
Click Shop Jimmy as it is best source to obtain boards of LCD TVs.
Please call Shop Jimmy for main board availability as currently its out of stock.

Hit "add a comment" button for further query / info.
Thanks.

Replace Capasitors


Just start removing all the visible screws , The power module with the bad capacitors is the unit in the center , Wasn't rocket science to find it either , Just follow where the power cord connection at the tv goes to which board
