Question about Televison & Video

I have a 46" LCD TLA-04641C. I left the room for an hour and came back and the TV was off. It will not come back on and does not even light the warm-up light. I have tried in other locations ie: outlets and still nothing. I am pissed, this TV is only a year old. What am I to do with it now for service locations in the Spokane WA area. Any feed back would be greatly appreciated. My e-mail is

seems ur tv is dead wth an unknown reason !!
Normally you will not have a light lit if the fuse is bad. This TV is known for having issues with their power supplies failing but the main board can cause the power supply to fail. Please be careful if you open the TV. The manufacture recommends that there are no user serviceable parts inside. This is due to high voltage being present even with the TV unplugged. Often the problem is caused by defective capacitors in the power supply.
A dead condition usually indicates one of the following: Open fuse (often internal, and usually pops due to other circuit defects). Short (overload condition) in the circuitry. Failure elsewhere in the circuitry. Most modern electronics have some logic circuitry, and if there is a section of the circuit not working, the logic circuit keeps the set from coming on at all.

First, if your power cord plugs into the set, check that it is properly connected. If you can get into the internals, find the fuse, check it, replace with an exact or near exact size.

If problems are beyond the simple, technical expertise will be required to nail down and fix the problem.

hope u ve got a satisfactory answer,
all the best

I have a 46'' Polaroid HDTV model TLA-04641C

It hasn't been 'unplugged' until you have let it stay that way overnight. There are components that need to discharge and that can take hours. You wrote 'standard sounds;' did this mean audio or something else?
If you have normal audio but no identifiable video, then the backlight or the inverter for the backlight has failed.
If audio is present, try looking at the screen from several angels to see if you can identify some ghost-like video. If so, then the above suspicion is pretty much confirmed.
I hate that the modern sets seem so prone to failure, it isn't a good trade-off for the increase in quality of the results. Most of these are not poor engineering but the effort to build them with the cheapest possible parts inside, often only saving a few dollars, but ruining their reputation.

Tla-04641c wont power standby light comes on and the relay clicks but nothing with the power button like im not even pushing it. opened it and pulled the power capacitors looked bad though i...

Hey listen bulldog, I am just having the same problem! Exact same thing, standy led on, power supply and boards seem like new, but tv doesnt power up! I read a schematic at and if you follow it through it states, to change the control box!! I have fair confidence that I can replace the control box because I have experience in soldering and have built my own computers before as also swapping major components in laptops as well! So I am willing to take the risk to fix this but heres the problem!! I dont know where or what the control box is or where to go to buy a new one! POLAROID customer service is aweful, unless you know the manufacturing plant and can go there, they wont be much help! I hope this info helps you, if you got the problem fixed can you tell me what you did or where I can look to get my issue resolved! Need anything else just post here!

Polaroid TLA-04641C no sound

You should go into the menu SOUND section of your tv. Look for the TV Speaker choice option.
This will have to be turned on to get sound from the tv.
