    I had the same problem with the Element FLX-3210. I read somewhere that someone said if you did not disable the turn off screen on a computer this would cause a problem. I have been having the computer turn the monitor off for some time but is still worked. This time I had shut the computer down while the television was on.

    Did you find out anything else?

    I have the same problem. The red led is on steady. Neither the remote or the front panel power switch will turn the set on. Does anybody know who manufactures this set? If I knew that, I might be able to find a service manual.

    Hi, another flx-3210 here with the same problem. Was driving it off a PC. turned off the power strip and later TV would not turn on, just the standby light. Does anyone know for sure which component is dying in these? Which component is the "control box"? I called the tech support number in the manual and they said it was $275 out of warranty (mine was 2 weeks out of warranty). This was a repair facility- not owned by proview or element. If you're pissed off about this I recomment spending an hour posting negative reviews on element and/or proview products wherever you can. The least you can do is warn others.

    I have the same issue with my element electronics flx 3210.
    I think we need to sue element electronics because they need to recall this product and permanently fix the problem.
    I called them and i was told it will cost me $242.00 to get it fix.
    This is BS.

  • jpiper0127 Feb 13, 2009

    I have the same problem. Tv just would not come on at all. Can't find a reset button. Red light is on and remote turns the green light on front on and it blinks but TV does not come on. Just continues to blink more rapidly until goes back to red standbuy light. Does same with turing on at TV. There is no sound or noise from electricity at all. Can anyone tell me what to do. Or if I need a part where exactly I can get it.

  • glowgoboy Mar 14, 2009

    Only the red light is on. Very interested in fixing this myself.

What the heck!?  My 3202 just shut off out of nowhere.  It was working PERFECTLY before just now & i've never plugged up my computer to it.  I'll be pretty livid if I have to cough up $$$ for a control box.

Sony sets are tricky to troubleshoot and you're not telling us much. For example, do you hear anything at all when you turn it on (clicking or high voltage coming up then shutting down). Anything appears on the screen at all ? Does the red light on the front blink and if so how many times ?

I lost the power cord during a move to my FLX-3210 Element TV. I can not find it anywhere. Help!

It is the same power cord as used for your PC. One end is NEMA5-15P, anther end is IEC C13.
RadioShack or local PC repair shop should have them.

I have an Element FLX 3210 that won't light up and show a has the sound but no picture.

Check the two caps (10uF 450Vdc) by the inverter transformers, also check fuse F2.
Worst case will be shorted out ballast caps in the LCD panel assembly.

How do i get picture in picture?

As far as I know, this TV doesn't have a PIP feature. The Element Electronics web site didn't appear to list this older model. did provide a phone number for customer support. does have the manual online.

I hope this helps.

The dishwasher starts and initially rinses the dishes without heated water. In the next part of the cycle, the water is supposed to heat to a certain temperature.Beginning this morning, in this second part...


The issue is with the heating element of your dishwasher, it is withdrawing very large amount of power and thus, the circuit gets overloaded and circuit breaker trips. You'll need to check for any short circuits around the heater element. And, also the resistance of the heater element, it should be around 1.4K ohms to 1.8K ohms.

Please do rate the solution as FixYa and Revert for further assistance.

Element flx-3210 lcd tv

I have an element lcdtv 32inch. The tv is less than a year old, i was watching the tv and it just shut off. The red light is on, when i go to power it up, the blue light comes on for a second then blinks, and goes back to red. I know its not a brand name tv, but for 600 bucks, it should last for more than 8 months. Anyone have any advice ?
