Sudden loss of power and won't come back on

I have the exact same issue with my Polaroid LCD TV...it was working just fine and then 3 days ago it suddenly went black and would not power back on. Not even sure if it is worth trying to get repaired or if I should just buy a new LCD tv....

More than likely it has a bad power supply board. The only thing is good luck finding one. I am going to try to repair mine.

My tv goes off by itself, after a while it comes back on. two days ago it went off and i cant get it back on


There is an IC in the TV that controls all functions; power on\off, volume, menu functions, etc.

When this IC losses power it will turn off the TV.

When this IC regains power it will restore the TV to the last Known condtion before the power was lost (OFF or ON)

It is possible that this IC is defective and has intermmitant power or functionality. This would result in this intermittant off and on and why you cannot power it on suddenly.

Also, be aware if the outlet that the TV is connected to losses power you could get this symptom (same if the outlet has a loose connection with the TV power cord)

overall point is:
1. Ensure the wall outlet is in good condition and the TV
2. the TV power supply could have some issue
3. if not 1 and 2, the TVs main board may be defective.

Screen goes black, still have audio


I first changed the 220uf capacitor with no luck. I flipped the BURN switch to on and the set has been working great for a week now. Daughter left it on for about 20 hours overnight with no problem. Anybody have an idea what those 4 tiny switches are for? I have heard these type of switches called "dip switches". They are tiny white switches in a yellow block on the lower left side of the upper circuit board. The top one was labled 40", the next one down was labled 46", the 3rd one was 4 letters "EW" something I think, and then the bottom one was labled "BURN".

I Think NO expert can help this problem because it free answer


I think I may finally have the answer for the "black screen of death" for the 42" Polaroid LCD televisions. I was having the same issue with the screen going black after a couple minutes of being on. I would shut it down then turn it back on and it would work again for 5-10 minutes. On the "power board" which is the board on top, there is a little red light that turns on when the screen would go black. above that there are 4 little switches, the lower on says BURN. I simply switched that over and the television has been working for 2 days for 8 hours + each day. Hope this help. Let me know

No picture


if nobody will repair the tv, then your probably better off buy a new one. yours could have the bulbs blow, there could be something wrong with the board or the power supply. i don't recommend working on a tv because they are very easy to mess up and do even more damage. for your next tv, get a higher rated brand like samsung or sony. they tend to be more reliable and are easier to fix/find somebody to fix

No Picture in my 1 Year Old Polaroid FLM-2632 LCD TV


had the same problem. if you take out the power supply in the back of your tv ( easy to get to just a few screws in back to get to the box then a few more to get into it and some quick disconnects) you can take it to a local tv repair shop and they can remove the two green capacitors in the upper left of the circuite panel and place in 16v ones that can actually handle the power needed. do not try to do it yourself although the new capacitors only cost 2 dollars one wrong move and you burn the wires on the board. the repair man only charged me 54 dollars well worth it considering polaroid wanted to charge me 500 to fix a 2 dollar part that should have been recalled. they are in the busines to make money but if any of us did what they did wede be considerd con artist. final note since ive replaced the capacitors my tvs worked better than when i bought it
