Question about Polaroid TTM-2401 TV
The power supply is going in to protection. There is a short somewhere.
Since you sound like you are able to service the set, remove the CRT socket and see if the set starts up and has high voltage. If so, the CRT may have a short in the electron-gun, or it is being over-biased from the CRT board.
I don't know the particular model design of your set. In the models that I do know, I have had components on the CRT board go defective and cause over-biasing of the CRT and cause a shutdown on startup.
Sometimes the components on the CRT board fail because the CRT is at fault, and it is arching some very high voltage back out to the devices on the CRT board. In this case, they will soon fail again.
If the above does not work, then it is possible that the flyback transformer has some shorted turns, or there is a failure in the HV multiplier.
Other things that can cause a shut down is if there is any components in any of the areas of the set that are causing too much current pull from the supply.
These sets can become very involved and a challange for the most experienced of techs to service.

My LOEWE CAL 232 will not power up. When the power button is pressed, the monitor turns on, with the LOEWE on the monitor, then the TV continues with the previous activity (antenna, DVD, VCR etc.). Now all that happens is
1. the red light comes on
2.after about 1 second the green light turns on for about 12 seconds
3. the the green light turns off for about 1 second
4. then the green light turns on again for about 12 seconds
and this continues until the power button is pressed to turn the TV off. During this time, the monitor does not turn on and the only sound I hear seems to eminate from the power button.
