Re: flm-2011

While Polaroid has had nothing but trouble with their LCD TVs, I wouldn't say they are throw away. Call them and demand warranty service. I ended up with a 323 last summer after their previous warranty servicer (petters) quit them and the new outfit gave me a new module after a half hour of persistance on the phone.

Are the Polaroid FLM-3232 and the Element FLX-3202

not sure if there the same but the boards inside may be.

This sounds like the problem most LCD tv's get with swelled up capacitors in the power supply board. look for circular cylinder shaped parts rapped in plastic with writting on the sides, and metal tops, if the top is rounded over, not flat, it is bad. replace them.
