Question about Polaroid FLM-3701 Television
Posted by Anonymous on
There is a fuse on the power supply board. It is labelled F1. It is a small cylinder near the AC connector. The F1 fuse is 5A 250V. How ever, capacitors are more likely to fail on this television.
The Polaroid FLM3701 has a problem with capacitors failing on the power supply board. If enough caps go bad, you will get no power. Not even a power light. Any capacitor that is swollen is bad.

SOURCE: How do you connect the
You can't connect a coaxial cable to the FLM-3701 because it's an LCD monitor - it's not a TV. The difference between a monitor and a TV is a TV has a tuner. A monitor does not.
This means you can only use this monitor for watching TV if it's connected to an external tuner with AV cables, e.g. a composite cable with red white and yellow plugs. You cannot connect this monitor directly to an antenna or a cable line as it does not have the hardware for tuning/scanning the TV channels.
Cable boxes, satellite receivers and digital converters are all classed as external tuners. You will need to connect your coaxial cable to one of these boxes and then connect the box to the TV with a suitable type of AV cable, e.g. composite, component or DVI.

Yes , there are fuses in the power section but the possible chance is the power supply and Unless the unit is removed to check you will not be able to get a first hand view.Use a multimeter to check and confirm if there is any shorted drivers or capacitors in the SMPS section.Please check this link:

few and far between as some of these sets were never meant to be fixed----Try three things: 1 is Ebay has literallly thousands of boards for sale used. 2. Google the model number with "parts". Look at places like ShopJimmy.com which number 2 may lead you to.
Good hunting---Google with key words.
