Question about Polaroid FLM-3732 Television
I found a TV by a dumpster. When I plug it in with no devices connected, I get the blue screen and "No Signal" and a very loud screaming noise. I opened the TV and disconnected the speakers and it stopped the noise. I plugged the TV into my computer's HDMI port and I get video, but everything has a green cast to it. Attempts to correct for this on the TV's color settings or on the video card's color settings were unsuccessful. Changing the TV's saturation setting to 0 produces a good black and white image. After being plugged in for a short time, the buttons on the TV stop working (including the Power button) and it will not respond to the remote control. It does, however, continue to display video. It has to be unplugged to get out of this. A couple of times when I've plugged it in, on the Polaroid startup screen, there will be changing horizontal lines that do not go all the way across the screen, and then it freezes up.
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

Testimonial: "You were right. It was blown 1000uf caps. Great job. Thank you very much"
I have the same TV and I just replaced the Capacitors. It came with 2 10000UF 10V caps and I put in 2 1000UF 35Volt caps from radio shack. Its like brand new. There is even a video on how to change them on You Tube.
