Question about Polaroid FXM-2611C 26 in. LCD Television

1 Answer

Poloroid FXM-2611C works fine for 5-6 minutes then loses video

The video/sound is fine for about 5 minutes then the video changes and looks like a scrambled video signal. Sound remains good. I can unplug the tv for a couple of hours, plug it back up and have sound/video again for a few minutes, then lose video again.

Any hints as to what component I might replace to fix this problem. I don't have and cannot find a schematic for this tv.

If you have a soldering iron and a capacitor tester you can check each cap out one by one, making sure that when you put back in a good one you observe the original polarity. If a cap has blown or is leaking it is obviously bad.

Boards can be expensive and perhaps not cost effective for a repair when you can get a new set for about the same money with a warranty to boot!

Polaroid 26inch lcd tvred standby light on but power wont turn on. I've unplugged the tv, changed the batteries in the remote. The tv stays with the red standby light only.

You need to open it up and checking the voltages in the power supply sections, you should have 5v (for logic circuits), 12v for sound, 24v for backlight inverter circuits. Look for bad caps with bulging tops in power supply also.

Polaroid FXM-2611C

this sounds like the problem most LCD tv's get with swelled up capacitors in the power supply board. look for circular cylinder shaped parts rapped in plastic with writting on the sides, and metal tops, if the top is rounded over, not flat, it is bad. replace them.
