Polaroid LCD TV TLA-4641C

The menu keeps flashing on and off. I cannot access anything with the remote or on the TV. When I press the input button on the TV it will stop the menu from flashing but I can only access the screen it freezes on, the picture screen.

If the TV goes in standby, then it is in protection mode.

Ensure also that the fault is not coming from a faulty receiver box sending
bad signal, check if you get same problem on DVD with no receiver box
connected.

Try first leaving the TV power cord unplugged for some times, let say one hour or so.

The flashing light indicates a diagnostic state called protection.
When the TV goes on protection there are only two possible causes.

1The internal circuits are jammed because of electrostatic charges accumulating on capacitors, or because of a wrong voltage read by the main chip on your monitor controller board. this started the protection circuit.

2 The protection circuit detected a wrong voltage or abroken contact, identified an internal fault and kicked in , starting the flashing light.

If you are in situation one, then the TV will reset just unplugging power cord for one or two hours,sometimes even minutes.

If you are in situation 2 , then there is an internal fault.

If under warranty contact the manufacturer ringing the number on the user manual

On LCD Pay particular attention at inverter and power board, power board can be inspected looking for bulged or leaking capacitors, then tested with a multimeter. The inverter is more difficult to test , there is need to read voltages, should be done by a tech. Also the LCD controller board can cause same problem

On Plasma, test Sustain (Ysus/Zsus) / Buffer boards , cables to plasma, digital board and power board.

On Rear Projection : check lamp, lamp ballast, power board, and convergence.

On CRT TVs, check ballast , flyback transformer, CRT, Tuner, Convergence.

Could be the input selector board not changing inputs. Presumably you have pressed the input button on the remote? What happens? Power down completely, remove mains plug wait 15 mins power up and try again. Also try a reset in the menu.

Problem on polaroid 04011c not shoving menu display or volume or eny command


Does your set respond to the controls on the set itself?

If you, are you able to access the setup menu to perform a factory reset?

If so, press menu, navigate over to setup, then choose reset defaults, to see if that improves your situation.

I hope that helps.

Tv won't change channels. push channel up or down button on tv or remote and nothing happens.


Are you set to view through the antenna input. If you are on any other input say watching though your cable box your channel button for the tv is not usable. You are using the tuner in your cable box.

TV scrolls through input sources on its own


To make sure the remote is still working, point the remote to the TV sensor, press couple of times and notice the Red LED is response or not. If the LED blinking, the remote works fine. The suspection now is the main board which is control all the inputs. You can try to get TV back to factory reset, it might help.
