Question about Polaroid FLM-3201 Television

1 Answer

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?

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.

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.

I have a Toshiba TV model 36A43 that won't power on. The same thing happened yeaterday as this morning. The tv will not power on via remote, or the manual power button. Yesterday, the same thing occurred...

It sounds like you have a switch problem at the front panel of the set. If a switch gets stuck internally the micro is trying to process the command and won't respond to any other commands. The only way to find out is to go into the set and desolder all the manual switches and see if the remote will work the set. It has a seperate detector for the remote. Thanks for using fixya. Good luck

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.
