Polaroid FCM-0710 - major issue

After following the instructions to the tee on installing my new Polariod FCM-0710 in the kitchen , I cannot figure why it will NOT turn on !!!
All connections are connected correctly (from instruction manual) . The issue is NO power , NO sound , NO picture , nothing .
Does anyone out there at "FixYa" know any secrets ???

Re: Polaroid FCM-0710 - major issue

I just fix one. LCD screen do not turn on.
Open the TV screen and look for the white fuse F1 in the ballast board. it is a 5 inch long half inch wide board with two connectors. Mine was reading over 120 ohms, as fuse must read zero ohms. If reading more of that just sold a thin wire jumper on it.
Sorry for my English as a ******* I just speak Spanish.

Try installing a brand new needle. If that doesn't work, it could possibly be a needle/hook timing issue. You should probably take it for service.

User manual for Samsung TX - P4130. Was given a tv and it doesn't have user manual. Would like to hook up a dvd player to it but can't without the user manual.

First of all, thank you very much for choosing FIXYA today for your technical support needs.

Here is a direct link to the ONLINE USER'S MANUAL for your Samsung TV which I believe is actually designated as a model TX-P1430 instead:

To view the Owner's Manual with Operating Instructions just use your mouse to click on the link, which is the underlined and blue highlighted text just above.

This will open a new web browser page automatically for you and allow you to view the information at the website indicated and the contents of the Owner's Manual.

You may need ADOBE READER installed on your computer to read PDF documents, although many computers already have this type of utility pre-installed.

You can download this free at WWW.ADOBE.COM if necessary.

Click on the DOWNLOAD ADOBE READER button on right side of the ADOBE home page when you get there, then follow the onscreen instructions to install the software on your computer.

See page 7 of the manual for detailed instructions and illustrations of the DVD connection procedures.

I truly hope that was helpful to you.

Good luck and take care.

Don't know that it's worth the money, but here's a source for a replacement inverter board (powers the fluorescent tube back light that provides 'brightness'). Manufacturer/designers of screen and back light power circuit, not Polaroid, are at fault . Screen and back light are used in equipment made by others as well, and all suffer same design deficiency :

The battery is probably not the only problem. If the display won't lite it is either the inverter board or the back lites

How to auto program -

If you are connecting dish Network to the TV you will need to go thru a receiver first.. then whatever input you connect the receiver to then you will be able to get the channels on that setting.. If that is what you are trying to do?

Sound works, picture is very dark

You have to be specific when asking a question please. as you dont mention its a flodable LCD screen TV as I had to look it up. your problem is in the backlite circuit. if your a tech, you should have no problem finding this fault but could be a little trick if your not as your going to need to know how a back light circuit works, the parts in the circuit and know how to use a multimeter. Good Luck
