This unit was scratched during moving. The front screen has three large scratches in it. Does this unit have an outer plastic cover to protect LCD screen or is the LCD screen itself scratched? If screen itself is scratched,can scratches be removed?

Re: Polaroid FLM-2601 flat screen
It has a protective outer screen and depending on the depth of the scratch you might be able to restore it. You'll need to look on-line at a few aircraft site for a kit that is meant to polish scratches from the plexi in an aircraft windshield. There is a company in Oregon http://www.chiefaircraft.com/airsec/Aircraft/Windshields/ScratchRemoval.html
that sells the kit for 34.95....
It is time consuming but I have restored many this way!

The FLM-2601 is an 'HD Ready" TV but does not have an HDMI input or a digital tuner, it only has an analog tuner. You will need a cable box or other source to view HD. Using the component inputs (YPbPr) you can get up to 1080i.
First- unplug it, Second- remove the back( can be tricky), Third- follow the AC cord to the power supply board and your there. Look for any Caps that may be bulged and replace them. Sometimes caps can be bad and look ok. Let ame know how you do>
I experienced a similar problem with three FLM 2601 power supplies (from work). The two large caps that have hot melt keeping them in place are the typical culprits. They are located at one end of the module near the x-former.
Radio shack has the 35v 1000u caps for about $1.40 each.
Hope this helps.
Just start removing all the visible screws , The power module with the bad capacitors is the unit in the center , Wasn't rocket science to find it either , Just follow where the power cord connection at the tv goes to which board
