Question about Polaroid FLX-374 37 in. LCD TV

1 Answer

My tv is only 3 yrs old and now it will not turn on, remote or manual. The blue lights comes on, but the 'polaroid' logo never comes on. If you unplug the tv a couple of times it will eventually come on, and if you turn it off and on it will work, as long as there is no great time lapse inbetween. What is the problem?

That sounds like it may be a power supply board problem where the power is not getting to the entire unit. It may be a blown capacitor on the board.

Polaroid TV screen will not always come on.


Are you talking monitor rather than tv? I have an LG 22 inch monitor and the on off button is on the bottom, If I don't hit it right or just tap it, it won't turn off but flashes. Where do you have it plugged in? Is it with some other electronics, or right to the wall outlet? I'm really at a loss as to what your problem really is. Are you using the remote? One quick fix might be the battery's in the remote. If they don't have enough power, short or no signal will be sent to tv or not being able to decipher it.

When we turn on the TV, either by the remote or the button on the side of the TV, the little light in the bottom right corner changes from red to blue and the Polaroid logo comes on the screen - just like...


Inspect the power supply module first for any sign of bad caps, burnt componenets, etc.
