Question about Polaroid FLM-3232 Television

1 Answer

TV doesn't turn on

When I plug the TV in and push the on button, nothing happens. It just stopped working. I opened it up and put a voltmeter to the connections where the transformers supply DC to the PCB. There was no voltage but the transformers were supplying around 80 Volts DC. What do you think is busted on the power regulation board?

    SAme problem will not turn on. When turn it on the red led light blinks one time and thats it. Checked fuse. I can get the backilght to come on if i unplug and replug in different wiring harnesses from board to board. But no picture appears when i get the lights on and also when i get the backlight to stay on the tv will not do anything at that point. The red led stays solid red during this period of time and power button will not work, and i have to unplug power cord to make it go off. Then have to plug it back in and mess with those harnesses to get lights to come back on. I dont know. I hate polaroid.....

    only half of the board has power and the heat sinks have 80V across them as well. Its like half of the boards heatsinks are 0V and the half thats near the ac to dc rectifiers have 80V. It even tells me that the big 150uF @ 450V cap is connected to the heat sinks. but I can't find were they bridge. Is there an easy systematic method to solve the problem or am I just totally off?

First warper2001 your power supply is probanly bad the voltage checks was you getting 80 volts on the output side of the transformers each one should be labeled as to the output voltage, at least one of them should only supply 24 volts, the transformer went bad probably overheated and melted the protective coating in the trans and let the voltage increase. could have burned out lots of things. unplug it, use a screw driver and short across the plug ins and the ground on the cord to drain the capicitors in the unit. the ohms check the components through each and to ground. check for opens and shorts. when checking a board remember that you will get a little bled back because you cannot isolate the parts. so most of you ohms readings should be large amounts of resistance if not you have a problem with that component, wire coils excluded. ie transformers they are best voltage checked. hello motorcity kid. i sent you a buddy message but also remember these items of advice.

Dryer won't turn on...

Try pushing the breaker pair off, then on and re-check the dryer. If still nothing, pull the power plug and check the two slanted slots for ~220 volts AC. If you don't have access to a voltmeter, or a friend with one, call an electrician to check. If you read the voltage stated, then the problem is within the dryer. Check the back of the machine for a reset button.

TV won't turn on

Here's something that might also be useful. After you turn on the set, and get the regular red blinky lights, hold down the Device and Menu buttons together for about 5 seconds.
The Power light will start to flash in a two digit sequence.

For example, 3 flashes, then 7 flashes = 37.

Here are the error codes, and the corresponding problem:

12 = No error detected, check power supply.
32 = Lamp Cover is open.
33 = Air filter cover is open.
34 = Lamp abnormality
36 = Light Engine (DMD or Lamp Fan stopped)
37 = Exhaust or Lamp Ballast Fan stopped
38 = Lamp Temperature High
39 = DMD Temperature High
41 = Short is detected
44 = DVI cable between FMT and Engine disconnected
