Question about Polaroid TLX-01511C LCD TV

1 Answer

The display goes white to red to black, after a few seconds

The display has gone dark, black. On startup, the display lights as normal while the Polaroid logo displays, but just goes blood RED for a moment and then BLACK after maybe 4 or 5 seconds. Using the remote, it apparently still changes channels and I still hear audio, so it appears to be just the LAMP or LAMP POWER SUPPLY which has failed. I can find NO information on the guts. I tried pulling the back cover off with no luck. With all the screws removed, the back is still so tight (maybe glued!) I was afraid I would break it if I simply tried to pry it apart. Is there a trick to opening the back? If I could get it open, at least I could check the lamp power to see it is bulb or supply. I can replace parts myself if I could find a source. I checked with Polaroid about out of warranty repair and they quoted a replacement cost instead, of more than it cost when I bought it new, and that was for a refurbished one with only a 30 day warranty! And they wanted the failed unit back. OK, so I am looking for information on replacing the lamp or the lamp power supply, where I can get parts, a service manual, SOMETHING. I'm tempted to just buy another, swap the internals and then attempt fraud by trying to get it repaired under the warranty of the new one I buy, but that is NOT exactly honorable, and I'll bet there are internal identifiers which would expose my plan anyway, so I'd probably lose. I would much rather fix it myself than commit fraud...

Why does screen go black after a few seconds


Hope this helps.... Your monitor has an inverter issue. You know it's an inverter problem when:
1. Your monitor starts normally and displays the startup/desktop screen for a while.
2. Then it suddenly goes off, leaving a blank (black) screen or a very dim display.

To fix this black screen problem, change the inverter board (based on your monitor brand).

One of the two monitors will cease displaying screen image and begin rotating between a BLACK/WHITE/GRAY/Primary Color Bars every other second following a few minutes after start up. Have tried Restar


It might be the input from the graphics card. Try swapping the two monitors' feeds to see if the problem is with the monitor or the card. The monitor seems to be going into a screensaver mode since there's no signal. The flashing light could mean there's a power supply problem, or no signal.

Negative screen image


Look in System Preferences for Universal Access, there is a Display option which says Black on White(the normal setting) and White on Black (the setting that has been enabled).

There is a keyboard short cut to change the setting, it involves pressing four keys - Apple, Option, ^ and 8.
