Hi there

seems that your Polaroid FLM-2601 Tv is having problems with the the fuse that is inside the tv, ehat you can do is check or manually open the tv and check for blown fuses and while your at it, check for blown capacitors as well.

This usually happens whenever we encounter power surges that in smaller quantities, doesnt hurt our appliances at all, but in considerably higher rates like of a thunderstorms or any sudden climate changes, this would hurt and dissable our appliances.

So, i suggest that if you can check your tv out first and diagnose those that i sited above, do so, but if it stil has the same problem, you may want to bring it to a service center instead.

again, thanks for reading. hope this helps.

    Ohh. so this model straight away have no fuse problems, thanks for that Drummernick :)



    So a probable cause for the irregularity SSISYO is having may be straight away to the transformer. maybe heat related issue as well.

My flm-2601 lcd tv blue indicator comes on when you turn the unit on but the tv shuts off after about 5 seconds.


This unit most likely has a bad inverter PCB found on the far left of the set viewing it from the back. Go to www.partstore.com They carry a lot of parts for the Poloroid brand set. Thanks

Flm-2601 will not power up


That particular Polaroid is, to put it bluntly, a piece of **** and never should have been unleashed on the public. Your problem is most likely the power supply and it's a module plug and play repair. Check Shop Jimmy for a used one first at about half the price of a new one. Might even order two because it will go again. Not a matter of if - it's when.
Hope this helps!

Doesn't turn on


Pretty good chance the power supply board is bad. A number of capacitors will become leaky and you lose all power. Some techs still know how to do component Laval service but most just change the board $$$$

Polaroid FLM-2601 Power


First off replacing the caps is not easy even for a tech. Double surface boards are soldered on both sides. The caps have a value printed on them like 1000@63 They also have polarity " they have to be put in in a certain direction" If you do something wrong you blow the works. Best to have it done by a tech.
