Question about Polaroid FLM-3201 Television

No Power to TV

This morning, my tv simply shut off. The light on the front doesn't even turn on. I unplugged the TV & waited, plugged it back in, still dead. I removed back panel, but area where there might be a fuse was not easily accessable. I have owned the TV for over 2 years, do not have extended warranty. What can I do?

Re: No Power to TV

I would call or contact one of the shops on FixYa and get them to fix it. For this you may need to provide a schematic, what I would suggest doing is contacting the company and asking for the service documentation for the TV and then providing that to whomever you are having fix the device or if you feel comfortable do the work yourself you can use a FixYa Expert to start you on the process of troubleshooting the problem. It sounds like you do have a power supply problem.

Magnavox television won't stay on

I know this is going to sound strange but I have something to check. If you have LED lights in your house turn them all off. When they are off turn on your TV and see if your TV stays on. Yes, there could be many problems but this one is cropping up quite a bit. If this does not work then you need to take a look at the power supply board.

No sound, no picture

Hello sorry to hear that. From your description it sounds like your signal board may have been damaged by you plugging in your laptop to it. The signal board is the one with the tuner on it.

Tv shut off, and wont turn on. It flashes when you press the power button. NO clue at what is wrong.

is the tv on a power strip? unplug the tv from the power strip or wall outlet wait one minute then plug back into the wall outlet and not a power strip. TV should power back on.

I have a westinghouse 42" lcd tv. Was working in the morning, ran some errands and when I went to turn it on, only the blue power light came on. No picture or sound. The only way to get the light to turn...

I had a similar problem with 2 other lcds. In one of them there were 3 capacitors that needed to be changed. In the other the main (biggest capactior) needed to be replaced. Someone may have already posted the solution for this tv with more details than I can provide.

Ilo tv isn't working

Try a power drain: 
1. Unplug the TV's power cable so that the TV is not grounded to the house.  Do not simply turn off a powerbar if one is in use. 2. Press and HOLD the TV's own power button for one minute to drain the capacitors. 3. Plug the TV back into a wall outlet versus a powerbar, if one is in use and see if this makes a difference.
If the TV still won't turn on but you have a LED light flashing, the problem is usually with the TV's mainboard and not the power supply or the LED wouldn't even be on.  Service is likely required.

Power button is green - no blinks / no picture / no sound

Unplug it from the wall, wait 2 minutes and plug it back in. if problem still exists, its probably the main pcb.

TV turns off by itself & won't turn back on til unplugged, then plugged back in

Well, first your model number is the 42 inch, but I digress...

I had a similar problem with a Viewsonic 27 inch, with the blinking power light on a failed power-up. It turned out that replacing the power transformer was the ticket. However, as I have the 50 inch Panasonic plasma, I know that the transformer is built into the set itself. I'd still suggest that this is what needs replacing though, as this is different from a set being on but having no picture.
