Question about Polaroid FLM-3232 Television
Hi, James thanks for excepting my buddy invite.
Tv made fairly significant pop noise thrn turned itself off.I think I narrowed it down to a transformer on the main power board. I guess my question is : How can i check to see if that is the problem. And if there is a way to test for it can i replace it myself ? Will a blown transformer cause the tv to turn off as a safety precaution to protect itself from further damage?
I can solder very well. Bye for now and thx. Anthony
Yes you have to test voltage but you must plug it in and check the power supply board first, the most common problem for those things is the 24 volt transformer in the power board fails check it for 24 volt output first, then trace the power route from there and the component that the board traces lead you to that dont transfer power through it will most likely be the problem but start at your power suopply and work outward from there. mine the 24 volt converter or transformer blew. i have been looking for one for 4 months. there is a eeprom in the main video board that blows also its easily found, it turns the unit on from the standby switch. check it also with a volt meter. you cant miss it on the board.
