Question about Polaroid TTM-2401 TV

1 Answer

Polaroid TTm - 2401 won't come on.

Tv is about year and some months old. Cut the tv off one night the next evening I cut it on and the menu box came across the tv screen, it wouldn't go off and it was nothing you could do you make it go off the screen about ten, maybe fifteen minutes of this and it went off on it's on. cut the tv off, next day cut it on and it wouldn't come on, next day still wouldn't come on, I unplugged it from the wall, waited sometime, still wouldn't come, about two days later the set came on, work for day or two with the menu box coming across the screen and going off on it's on, I cut the set off and it has not cut back on since that was a week ago. I call a few tv repairmen, Three of them said they don't work on polaroid because it's to hard to get parts, one repairman told me I have already been punished by buying it, go to the pawn shop and by one that works better for less!!! The tv had a beautiful picture and maybe a little over a year or less, I can't find my receipt, I called to of my major credit cards they couldn't help, circuity city tried to look it up, they had every purchase but that one, how odd!!!. Am upset!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I did find one person today!! who said he could fix it,but he didn't know what the price would be until he looked at it, he knew what I was talking about as I tried to explain, he mention the the above information....., so I don't know", I think I will pay the 30.00 service fee, if not I will drive myself insane as to if it could be fixed, if not then will lay the matter to rest and trash the set.

    Thanks

Well, as you can see by the plethoria of problems posted about Polaroid televisions you are not alone.
Yopu have been caught by a relatively new product problem called ``Paid Rebranding``,where a manufacturer will purchase the rights to brand their product with a relatively well know name, giving it instant recognition. Polaroid, or any other manufacturer makes a TON of money...for doing absolutely nothing. Actually, a few years ago, polaroid went out of business, so whoever purchased the rights to resell the name, made a ton of money. Unfortunatly, the company that sold their name knows nothing about the product...because they didnt make it, and the original manufacturer has absolutely no repair channels put into place for after sales service. If 100,000 units were originally made, 100,000 parts were purchased to make the units...and NO MORE. Now with 90% of parts crammed into 1 specialty chip...if that 1 chip goes...its all gone...and without replacement parts...no one can fix it.

Your TV will need a HD converter because it doesn't have a digital tuner but only if you are receiving over the air signals. If you have a cable box or satellite receiver, then you do not need the converter HD box.

My tv screen is too wide horizontally. I can't see but what's in the middle of the picture. Do I need to purchase a new tv or is this something that can be fixed?


go into video set up and take tv out of zoom mode

it sounds like you have it set to zoom a standard definition signal and that will make picture become bigger than the screen and cut picture off

hope that helps

There is a 10 -15 minute delay before sound comes on. It's a Polaroid TTM2401 tv 5 yrs old


Change all the capacitors in and around around the sound output section. Usually Philips capacitors shows a some sort of leak after some years. I says this according my service experience. I'm working with this kind of electonic entertainement equipements since 1974. We cannot predict the exact capacitor poise the problem. That is why recomeds to change all of them. It won't cost so much.

From your description it sounds like you TV is experiencing a shut down and re-set condition. This is usually caused by some type of voltage irregularity in the power supply section of the TV. Unfortunately, this is not an easy fix and will require a trip to the shop. Get an estimate before approving repair. In the new world of disposable electronics the cost of repair may exceed the value of the set.

Electrical Arching in back of tv


Check the connection of the ground. Bad connection of ground usually create this problem.
Especially the ground connection between the crt board and the wire who surround the picture tube. Let me know what you will get after this.
