Question about Polaroid FLM-3734B 37 in. LCD HDTV

1 Answer

Polaroid LCD TV has no power

Tv has no power, power is ok, outlet is working fine and fuse has been replaced. There is no red light. Was working fine, turned it off, came home and now it won't turn on. I saw a similar post and the solution had something to do with the capactiors (sp?). Will this help us maybe?

Thanks for your help!

PS...I will never buy from polaroid again, this is a replacement TV cause the first one went out, not the same problem though and now it's out of warranty!

The following link posted by stiv0 gives detailed instructions on how to replace the two capacitors that commonly go bad on this TV. When these capacitors go bad they prevent the TV from turning on. However, you still get a red light when you plug it in. Since your not getting a red light I'm not sure this fix will work for you. I'd open up the TV and see if the capacitors are bulged out as described in stiv0 post. If they are I'd go ahead and replace them and give the TV another try. This fix is fairly easy to do and very inexpensive so you don’t have much to lose.

My polaroid lcd tv, wont turn on, its 16 months old, any ideas?


Try plugging it into another outlet - one which you are certain is working. If that doesn't work, you might have a bad fuse inside your TV. If that isn't it, the power supply board may have failed.

Do other devices work in these outlets?

If so, then you've blown your power supply. Power supplies are relatively cheap and contacting your local TV repair shop will get you an estimate for repair.

If no other devices work in the outlets you're trying, you probably tripped a breaker.

Since the tv is not turning on try unplugging it from the wall outlet for a few minutes. Up to 10 or 15 and see if the set will reset on it's own. If that does not work press the power button and when the front light comes on press and hold power button for about 10 seconds to see if it will reset this way. Maybe this work.

Our electricity went out and now we have it back on


Most times when a power outages occur, most everything that's plugged into an outlet receives a "Power Spike". Basically it's a shock wave traveling through the neighborhood power grid when the electricity turns OFF and ON.
Hopefully the TV didn't receive too much damage. Inside the TV, there is a fuse that may need to be replaced. Radio Shack or other electronic store will carry these fuses. If this doesn't solve the problem, the Power Supply Board maybe damaged.

No power on


is the status light on wheather red or blue if eather one then the fuse is fine if not check the fuse. if the lights are on then chances are your caps are gone its a huge problem with these tvs. if it is your caps than just replace them as i did and the tv is working like new again. These are the caps I replaced they where only a little swollen I was worried if they where even the problem but I changed these three and was very happy that my TV is now working like new again the two top ones I replaced with 1000uf 16v the lower one is 1000uf 35v ok well I hope this helps ya

Polaroid flm 3201 wont turn on


If you have no power light at all on the front of your tv. Check the fuse by the power coard.

If you have a red light only and have the dark power board with black heat sinks. check the fuse in the center of the power board.

if the light turns blue when you hit the power button but no picture and have the dark power board replace the 2- 1000 mfd 10 volts caps with 2- 1000 mfd 16 volt caps at 105 deg.

need more help let me know
