    No smoke or any type of smell from mine. When I power the TV up Polaroid flashes on the screen then the sound kicks in and no picture. The screen is black, I remember it might of had a black glow then the picture would come on. Picture Tube? Would Polaroid flash on the screen if that was broken? How could I test that to see if that was the problem?

It sounds like it is the picture tube. The same thing just happened to me. The back of my television started smoking and then there was no picture.

Blue LED light comes on but nothing else happens when turned on

It can be the main board or the power supply, look at the power supply first since it is easier to get to, look for burnt parts, bad capacitors, etc.

We have a Polaroid FLM-323B. Have issues starting

Look at the power supply first since it is easier to get to, look for burnt parts, bad capacitors, etc.

I would suggest not to try to use the TV until the problem is solved becuase more damages can result.
Please post back what you find.

Polaroid flm-3232 locked or in sleep mode? Is that possible

Hi there!

I work in an electronics store and I've come across this problem before. The only solution that has ever worked for the people who call in or come to see us is pretty simple. You need to unplug your PC from the TV (if you haven't already done so), turn the TV on by using the "channel +" button. Some TV's when turned off at the wall will not turn back on again unless you press the channel + button. Give it a go and see what happens. Let me know if you need more help.

Also, it sounds like your laptop may not have been supported due to the wrong resolution being outputted through your VGA connection. When you get your TV turned on again I'll see if I can help you get them to work together,

Cheers and good luck!
