Ok so here is my update. I spoke with people at Target's Corp. customer services. I had to jump thru some hoops, if you want my opinion, I think there are legal things going on between Target and Venture Electronics, formerly known as Alco, the suppliers of Trutech. I was giving two numbers to try from a woman at Target, who was very nice and helpful, but unwilling to elaborate to much. When both numbers failed she sent a Venture tech an email on my behalf. Two days later I was contacted by a rep who all of my info. The long and short of it is that I am right now two weeks later watching my formerly broken tv. Venture paid for my shipping both ways and fixed the tv. The tech did admit that the capacitors are a problem but in some cases there have been other issues as well. The tech I worked with might get pissed at this but who cares. The tech number is (905) 477-7878 his name is David, and his ext. 5095. He is very helpful but you have to stay on top of him, I had to call every other day for a week to get the shipping tag so I send them my tv. Good luck to all hope everyone is able to have the success I have.

The tv keeps turning on and off

hi sounds like you have a faulty power supply board which could have faulty swollen capacitors that resemble little cans....replace the swollen ones with new ones which can be purchased from maplins RS spares online or ebay,,,,make sure you buy the same value(uf) and voltage which is written on the side of the capacitors and also make sure you put the in the right way round.
hope this helps

Polaroid FLM1514 LCD power will not turn on

The power supply board 2950c is driven by a Fairchild CM0765 power converter which is a MOSFET combined with PWM controller. This board is used in several different LCD TV's. It should output 15V at 2.5A. You can find a troubleshooting giude here
If the fuse is not blown, and the 3 output caps are not swollen then usually the capacitor C4 (Vcc Capacitor) is faulty. It is usually a 22uF 35V Electrolytic and you wont easily see if it is faulty - you need a cap meter to test it, or just replace it with a 47uF 50V and it should work.

Diagram where fuse is in the polaroid flm-3701

There is a fuse on the power supply board. It is labelled F1. It is a small cylinder near the AC connector. The F1 fuse is 5A 250V. How ever, capacitors are more likely to fail on this television.
The Polaroid FLM3701 has a problem with capacitors failing on the power supply board. If enough caps go bad, you will get no power. Not even a power light. Any capacitor that is swollen is bad.

Polaroid TLX-1911C LCD TV with no picture (black screen) and sound. Which board do I replace? Power supply or Main board?

I would first check the power supply. Check the main fuse, if is blown and there was no power surge from an external source, the supply board has some serious problem. If the fuse is fine measure the output voltage of the power supply board. Check for any swollen electrolytic capacitors, they are the number one cause of every LCD failure I have come across. I just fixed a Polaroid FLM1514 which has a 2956C Ver 2.0 power board driven by a Fairchild CM0765. Turns out the VCC capacitor was bad and not even swollen, sowpped it for a 47uF 50V and presto.

Model FLM-3701 will not power up.

There is a fuse on the power supply board. It is labelled F1. It is a small cylinder near the AC connector. The F1 fuse is 5A 250V. How ever, capacitors are more likely to fail on this television.
The Polaroid FLM3701 has a problem with capacitors failing on the power supply board. If enough caps go bad, you will get no power. Not even a power light.
This P/S board is easy to access on this TV. There is a cover on the back of the TV. It is attached with 8 screws. Remove the cover. This will expose 2 boards. The power supply board is on the right. To remove the P/S board, first unplug the cables. There is an AC power power cord on the right and 4 data cables on the left. The board is held in with 4 screws. Remove the screws and the board will lift out. Any capacitor that is swollen is bad. The top of the capacitor will be curved upward. On the left side of the P/S board, there are 9 big caps labelled E8 thur E17. I would suggest replacing all of them. 6 are 680uF 35V and 3 are 680uF 25V. In the upper central region there are 3 small caps. These go bad, but they do not swell. These are E6, E7 and E22. They are all 22uF 50V. Replace all three. The attached photo shows before and after the caps have been replaced. The original caps were orange. The replacement caps are black.

Tv has power in stand by mode but no power or blue led light when trying to turn on. it seems the tv has no power

Unplug the T.V. and hold the power button down for 30-60 seconds. Plug the T.V. back in and try powering on. If it still doesn't power on then you may need a firmware update, or something on the board has gone bad such as the power supply or capacitors. You can take off the back of the T.V. and look for any swollen capacitors on the board and see if the power supply looks ok.

TV does not power up...outlet is good. What could be wrong?

I believe the power supply has failed. You may inpect the power supply for swollen or dried out capacitors, also check your fuse.

hope this helps
