Question about Televison & Video

1 Answer

We bought someone's nightmare from a local pawnshop. We did not know the problems we would encounter after reading about our Polaroid FLM-373B T.V. WOW! Any ways we replaced 3 of the capactiors in it. The 2 well known ones and one that was buried under some black looking fin things. We turned it on, got nothing. So we went back to the drawing board. With a flashlight we can see the words POLARIOD come on. Without it we could not see anything. So we opened it up again. Checking the power inverter board (where the caps were bad) and touched one of the bigger caps with a screw ground when we got a spark. I dont know if this is a problem or not. But before we tested the power board we noticed on the backlight inverter that there was like some tiny flat cap that was burnt along with 3-5 of the really tiny ones burnt. So we are assuming that the backlight inverter is bad. I would like to know how to test the power board to see if it is dead or what. Any ideas on how to do this? I only have had this tv almost a week, paid $50 for it thinking it was a cheap fix and buy for a tv when to find out it is a nightmare. Can someone help us out with this?

Well, misery loves company, so here is my advice, try and get the entire board(s) from the throw away sets, check out TV repair shops they will maybe even give you some of the bits, or even, let you take them out yourself, Just be polite & direct, and I am sure you will prevail. look om Ebay, check local papers, for busted sets, that hopefully won't have same fault as your. These Polaroid sets are a nightmare.. but when they go, they''e OK. If you only paid $50, well, you have a bit of room to move... :)

Testimonial: "Thanks I will do so. I am wondering money wise should I replace the power supply board as well since I already replaced the 3 caps on it? "
