Color on poloroid TDA-03211c

The color is not the same as it was at the store. some where i read an article that it has something to do with pumping up the power at the store to inhance the color. is that true? when it was bought all the tvs were showing the same picture. i suppose that was not a tv cable connection.

tnks,
mike

You do have what we in the business call "customer preferences" and you can access them by following the procedures in the manual. Yes, very frequently the stores use a common feed for their displays, just to show differences in set features. However, the stores must follow the same protocol when "tweaking" that you must do now for your tastes....accordianman

TV picture burned out


Sounds like you got a bad Capacitor inside the TV that popped and then smoked as the capacitor got extremely hot. Now the power board will need to be replaced on this and your right this should have lasted longer then what you came to expect from the unit when it blew.

Things to do when buying home eletronics and I know walmart asked you "Would you like a exended warranty with your purchase today?" its $29.95 for 3 years and your answer would have been NO i'll take the 1 year fro mthe manufacture. Now you got to purchase the part that went pop and smoke. Upset at the store? Upset at the manufacture? or upset with yourself for not taking advantage of walmarts 3 year warranty for pennys on a dollar? However it is it is.

Fixya is here to tell you what the problem is and how to fix it if your good at Tv repair oe eletronics to boot.

You need a new power supply or you need the componet that popped and smoked, straight put you need repair. Is there a recall? No, but there was a warranty option see these days TV's do not last long why? It would put the manufactures out of business and would set back tech support its all a money grubbing game is it my falt? No I was born in 1974 where the first TV I had was the tube Tv only the best!!

www.partstore.com is where you purchase the new part from. Good luck and Merry Christmas

How to set smart sound on polaroid tv model # tda-03211c


As far as I am aware, only Philips Magnavox has this option.
I did some searching and have yet to find this option for your tv. I will do further searching and let you know if I find anything different.

My poloroid tv with dvd player dvd player put dvd in makes noise


This is a very common problem with the 32" TDA-03211C TV/DVD combo unit. Poloroid sent me three replacement DVD units in the first year and each began doing this same thing after a few months (chunking noise and could not load disks). Finally my warranty expired and it failed again. I ended up with two units left after all those exchanges, so I took one apart to see if I could figure out what was going wrong.
In switching the units out one day, I noticed that the forward facing side of the DVD box was getting very warm even when it is not being used. Also, the dvd's felt very warm when ejected from the unit. I also noticed that the metal plate which is behind the picture screen and only about 1/4" from the forward facing side of the DVD box was even warmer (about 110 to 120 degrees F). This heat is distorting the thin metal and plastic parts in the DVD unit, causing the parts not to be in correct contact and alignment (disk won't play and sometimes won't eject).
With the front and top covers removed from the DVD box and the box laying flat on a table (and no dvd in unit of coarse), I pushed downward firmly on the black plastic disk at the top of the drive, and also on the lever arm that is accessible through a hole near the left front of the unit until they bottomed out to bend them down some (the lever arm was warped upwards where it was actually rubbing the top of the case - that was the chunking sound I heard).
I then went to O'Rielly auto parts and bought a 1'x2' sheet of exhaust manifold gasket material for $8. This material is not flamable and will withstand temperatures that would melt this TV into a puddle. I cut the gasket material so that it would fit neatly inside the top cover of the DVD box (metalic side up), then put the top cover and front cover back on the unit. I cut another piece of the gasket material to fit snugly in the space between the forward facing side of the DVD box and the metal plate that is behind the picture screen (metalic side facing picture screen). I then reinstalled the DVD box into the TV. It was a little tighter fit than before, but went in OK and is still removable with some effort.
Both of the previously non-functioning DVD units I have play fine now in the TV. The disks eject perfectly every time now and I notice a significant difference in the temperature of the disks when I eject them. No more strange noises either.
These DVD units are fine and are actually quite well built, but they are just mounted too close to a heat source. A little insulation is all it needs. I cant believe Poloroid's design people can't figure this out.

Toshiba MW27FPX dropped it!


See if you can borrow a TV de-magnetizer (degauss) from a tv shop...if that doesn't purify the color, then the shadow mask inside the picture tube is bad = no repair unless CRT is replaced
and that would cost more than a new TV ! ...................T.
