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.

Sharp LC40LE600E wont turn on

Had exact same symptoms as Keran. Turned out to be my daughter had turned the TV off with the other power switch which is a button on the right hand side of the set - we always use the rocker switch on the left hand side and had forgotten about the button. Turned the rocker switch on, then the button and it was back to normal.

Grandson put a penny into the SD slot while the TV was on. It immediately stopped working.

This happened to me yesterday. My daughter put a penny and a dime in the SD slot and none of the buttons or volume were working on my TV.Only the power button would work.
I fixed it by simply removing the penny and dime out of the SD slot and then i held the power button for 10 seconds. After I unplugged the TV from its power source for 5 minutes and then plug it back in. When I turned the TV back on everything was back to normal.
For a second I thought I was going to have to buy a new TV, lol. Hope this helps. If it doesn't work the first time then try it a second time.
By the way I have a Panasonic PT-52LCX66 LCD Projection TV..

Panasonic remote and volume/channel buttons do not work

My son put a penny in the SD card slot of my Pansonic flat screen tv. I finally got the penny out but now the volume and tv controls do not work. I can change the channels through my cable box but that is it. The volume does not work on my cable remote or the flatscreen. What do you suggest I do to fix this problem?? Thanks, Josh

Freeze up

Most likely it's your memory ic (eprom). Sometimes depending on the make, an authorized service center can flash the eprom back to normal. This is something you can not do but I hope this helps a little.
