Question about Polaroid FLM-323B Television

1 Answer

Black screen with sound

TV works great for about 30 minutes. The screen goes black the sound and the remote still work. I leave it off for 15 minutes and it works for about 10 minutes more before it goes out again. I found a swelled capacitor on what I assume is the power supply board for the lights. I replaced it with the same type cap. This didn't solve my problem. Any ideas?

Re: Black screen with sound

The TV lasted a little over a year & I'm glad I didn't get a warranty. A repairman estimate was $512 but he is still waiting for a control module replacement for other customers. They purchased the exteneded warranty but have been waiting over 6 months for parts that are still not in. I trusted the Polaroid name, my mistake to trust a name.

Screen and sound cuts out at times.

I would check the power board capacitors. Many people are losing the electrolytic caps on these boards. It is possible yours are failing only when they heat up.

Well, not completely true; the fluorescent backlight is still a high voltage device, even if only hundreds of volts instead of kilovolts, and either the lamp(s) or the power supply for it (them) is causing the dropout of your picture. When it does it next time, look at the screen from various angles, I think you will see that video content is still there.

Screen goes black with sound

the lcd control board is out side the control box, its probably the culprit, its under 20 dollars new. the swollen cap means that its getting too much voltage to that component. better do voltage checks on the power supply each transformer is labelled for voltage output make sure its providing the correct voltage and not surging, this can cause the tv to fail with serious problems. now mr zuzu13 you need to have the tv on a surge protector and be careful not to let it arc when plugging in. you also need to do the same checks as above its most likely a power supply problem causing the shut downs. also reset your tv to factory settings by punching in 8282 on the remote this might also solve your problems. but dont forget to check the power supply now it might save you a costly repair.

Black out screen

I had the same problem once with my RCA television. It only happened on certain channels and didn't happen during commercial breaks. If I adjusted the volume on the tv the box went away, but came back shortly after. The problem ended up being some malfunction in the closed captioning. I turned it all off and changed the CC settings and never had the problem again.
