Question about Polaroid 1720-7 Remote Control

1 Answer

Dog destroyed my romote

I have a Polaroid 42" Plasma...model #PLA 4200M and the only way to turn it on and operate it is with the remote, which is destroyed....We can't find any other buttons to control the power, vol, channels, etc anywhere on the outside or back of the tv...I've never seen this on any other tv. Do I have to unscrew the back to find these buttons or try and get a universal remote?

Color on tv is very faded and dull

Is your TV a CRT or a Flat panel. If it is a CRT, the cathode ray tube is old and weak. Too expensive to replace, just get a new Flat panel TV as they are the only ones sold now.

When i turn my polaroid pla 4248 on the light goes from red to blue and i get sound but no picture

The problem here is either a combination of what they call the X-sus printed circuit board and the Y-sus printed circuit board or a case of either one or the other, i reccomend that if you have a muti meter and the unit is well out of warranty, open the back of it, and test the voltages, which should be marked on the printed circuit boards where the plugs plug in from , or too , the main printed circuit board.
You will be able to find the Y-sus and the X-sus printed circuit board fairly easily as they should be marled with a part number and description, eg, Y-sus, etc, if not, they are the large printed circuit boards on the left and right side of the main printed circuit board.
If you find the voltages are different to that show on the circuit board by a large amount, chances are that printed circuit board is faulty.
I hope this offers some assistance. Good luck.

Picture too large

Find the "wide mode" or "zoom" button on your remote or something similar.
