Question about Polaroid TBX-2000AF 20 in. TV/VCR/DVD Combo

1 Answer

Audio I bought the Polaroid TV/VCR/DVD from Target in March. It was a floor model, so there's no warranty. Recently the audio has been flickering off and on -- usually turning it off for a bit helps, but it is finally totally gone. The TV was generally on mute during its use as the floor model, so the only problems I should have would be with the screen. Any suggestions as to simple ways to fix it? I'm hesitant to open it up myself but would rather not have to pay to have it transported and repaired at a shop.

Re: Audio

I would first see if the audio output stage is functioning properly. I would do this by plugging into the audio output RCA jacks with an audio amplifier and seeing if the audio is breaking up there if not the problem is in the stages after the jack tap off point if the problem is still present in the RCA jacks then the problem is before the RCA jacks. Now I would also take voltage readings of the audio output IC chips this includes bias voltages and the output signal voltages. of the input and the output of the chips (in case of stereo). This will tell you if you need to replace the audio ICs or not. Now what could be happening is that the audio control circuit could be at fault for this you will have to check the voltages on the command processor. There is no simple way to repair this problem, which does not involve opening it up. However there is a way to bypas, and I mean bypass the problem "THIS IS NOT A FIX" If the audio out of the RCA jacks is not effected you could plug an audio amplifier into them (Left and Right Stereo) and use the amplifier as your audio output. This is not a good practice, but it will get you by. I would suggest getting the set fixed though.

I want to record a dvd from my tv/dvd/vcr combo to an external vcr. i'm not trying to break any laws, it's only for my babygirls personal enjoyment. please tell me how the wires should be

as long as you're not breaking any laws you can connect the video/audio output of your combo unit to the video/audio input of your vcr using audio/video rca cables where the yellow plug goes to the video input/output and the red plug to the right audio and the white to the left audio input/output.

Muted t.v. channels

Hi lildreamer05,

Many stations broadcast seperate audio channels to allow commentary or alternate languages to be heard if desired. I recommend navigating your audio settings and looking for "SAP." If this is selected, turn it back to "Stereo," "Mono," or whatever other option is applicable to your audio setup.

Thank you,

Hooking up a DVD player to a Quasar TV/VCR Combo


Yes, for a workaround. The adapter would be 2 RCA female to 1 RCA male. You have to connect both the red and white to the female RCAs and use the male to connect to the TV's Audio INput. The yellow goes to the video. There should be no negative technical effect other than lost of stereo quality. The audio output of the DVD is line level and could normally tolerate this condition.

The correct method is to use a simple line level audio mixer and mix the L& R audio signal to produce a mono signal or to use a stereo amplifier for the sound output.

Hope this be of some help/idea. Pls post back how things turned out or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

External DVD won't play - no manual available anywhere

The tv has a set of imputs for audio and video ,there is a posibility your dvd is not working right,you can also try a vcr by using the rca audio and video outputs of the vcr to the rca audio and video imputs of the tv,that will tell you if the dvd is not working ,the tv should have a switch selector for video and antena or have a channel below 1 called aux.
