Question about Polaroid FLM-2601 Television
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.
