Polariod FLM2601 Power Problem

Hi. I saw your post about the problem with the unit not turning on. I have a red light but no picture. Pressing remote power button or unit power button does nothing. Went to Radio Shack and got (2) 1000uF 35wvdc capacitors. Removed bulged ones in unit and replaced. Still no picture. Any suggestions?

I don't know why it isn't working, but I did feel I should say that if you do get it fixed I would change those capacitors out. The original capacitors that you replaced were high temperature electrolytics, rated to 105 degrees Celsius. the radio shack capacitors are rated at 85 degrees Fahrenheit maximum. As I believe that this common problem with these units is caused by those capacitors overheating, I would highly recommend you use replacements with an equivalent or higher temperature rating.

Check for bad capacitors (they'll look bloated) on the power supply board. Also check the voltages on the power supply board with your meter ; they should be etched on the board at test point location(s)

LG 32LH30 screen won't power up. Red light at bottom glows hi to low, but no picture. Unplugged and waited overnight, plugged in again, still no picture.


There is a way to tell if you have a bad board, or a bad panel.

1. Make the room dark and turn on the TV. Can you see it light up? If so, does it stay lit or turn right back off?

2. If the panel lights, but you have no picture, I would suspect the T-con. Some units now have the T-con incorporated with the main board, so you will need to check.

3. If you never get any light at all, then I would suspect the power supply.

4. If you only get light for a second or two, then you have a bad panel.

Polariod LCD FLM3732 does not show picture but has power


Its possible that you have some bad Electrolitic Capacitors. They are a very easy fix and very easy to see if they are bad. I have some vids posted on youtube on the fix for this. It only costs a few dollars to do. Just search on youtube for flm3732 repair or go right to my channel youtube.com/raider2845 and watch the 5 short vids I had posted.
