Question about Polaroid TBX-2000AF 20 in. TV/VCR/DVD Combo

2 Answers

Volume problem After a few days, the volume decreases almost to zero. It doesn't affect the output to the stereo, just the TV speakers. And, if i unplug it for a day or so, it's fine again for 3 to 5 days. Then the problem repeats. Any suggestions?

Re: Volume problem

So, better off sending it in for warranty, or just replacing the ic myself?

I have a sharp tv with the volume at its highest but i can't hear anything

Check its speaker first. If voice coil of the speaker or tis cone paper has damaged, speaker will produce a dull low sound output. If the speaker is found OK, check the audio output section of the unit. This section circuits can be located inside the TV circuit board. look for any loose or bad soldering terminals at the audio output IC. It is best to resolder all the suspected solder points by applying a little more solder, withut making any solder bridge short in between adjecent solder terminals. If this also does not help you, replace the audio output IC. It is damaged. OK.

How do i reset the v-chip password on my tv

Hi, try this:-
1/ VOLUME DOWN on the TV set and the ZERO key on the REMOTE control.
2/ VOLUME DOWN on the TV set and the FOUR key on the REMOTE until the message “Initialize5 Complete” appears on the TV screen.

I can't guarantee that this will work , but give it a go and let me know.

Sound off my tv

Hello tennie,

Check your audio out configurations on your TV menu, this includes mute and volume control. After checking them, then try to see if any audio is coming out of the other audio outputs. If there is, then you may have damaged speakers. If there is no audio on any of the outputs you may have a damaged audio output processor or a poor connection in the audio section. If this is an audio circuitry issue; I would suggest that you take the unit to a TV repair shop for an estimate, and let them repair it.

I hope this helps,
Thank you,

Parental control

1. Go to the V-chip selection in the customer menu.
2. If the set has an active PIN code, the menu will display “BLOCK-ING ACTIVE”.
3. Press RECALL on the remote four times within five seconds.
4. The menu should then display “BLOCKING RESET”.
5. Input a new four-digit PIN code and press ENTER.
6. The next menu page will appear which allows you to scroll down to the various lock selections. If you want to remove the PIN code completely, instead of entering a new code, just exit the menu after pressing recall four times.
1. Disconnect AC power for several seconds to reset unit clock.
2. Adjust unit volume to minimum.
3. Press and hold volume down button on unit control panel.
4. While holding the volume down button, press and hold the “Zero” key on the unit remote.
5. The user menu will appear with the V-Chip cursor blinking.
6. Pressing the “Enter” key on the unit remote will open the “New Password” menu.

Sound form Bush TV

It could be several problems, I'll share with u a couple. All of them need a tech.[technician]
Your volume control works by adjusting the voltage\current to the speakers. The VOLUME CONTROL could be damaged\fixed at a point [even if you are raising\lowering] at high volume.Sometime the control has a crack ********\********* in such a way that the volume arm won't go past crack[see above] on HIGH volume.
The audio IC could be shorted in high volume. Sometimes the audio IC is PART of a 64 (sixty-four) pin ckt. How do u test for that if u are not a techo'
Let someone take a peek at it.

14" t.v. when i increase the Volume

I believe you have a regulation problem ,when you increase the volume the audio output IC draws more current therefore the power supply has to keep up with the increase in current,the symptom might happen if you increase the brighness to the max as well,the voltage changes need to be monitored closely to diagnose what component is not doing the work.If you are familiar with tv service this is a problem that will give you a challenge but if you are not too familiar be safe and let someone else get the headache.Let us know how it goes or if you need more information.

No sound,volume bar works

Sorry I dont have a manual but it is available at If you put your ear close to the speaker, with the volume turned up, do you hear any hiss or buzzing? If you dont it could be a bad speaker,headphone jack(if there is one), or the audio output IC or ascoiatated componets. If there is a hiss, then theres a problem with the audio processor or switching IC. If your not a tech, you should not be experimenenting around inside this TV set!

No sound

Check first if theres a speaker cutoff in the menu of the set or the back of the set. Next see if theres a headphone jack and plug in a set of phones to see if you get sound. If you do a connection on the jack is bad. if you put youe ear right next to the speaker and hear a little background noise or a little sound then its probably in the volume control curcuit. if you hear nothing at all its the audio output IC or the speaker itself is defective. Good Luck
