Question about Element Electronics FLX-3211B 32 in. LCD HDTV

Open Question

I purchased a 37 inch television in 2007 from Circuit City in Jackson,Ms.with warranty to insure if anything went wrong it could be fixed.However they closed and last year my Element television started to give me problems.When it is turned on the screen blinks then retrieving data appears.So I turn it off and it pops back on only to show a picture of static and lines and from there a loud buzzing sound.I then unplug it to only have it hard for me to get it back on so what solution do you all have I paid too much for this television to have to pay more to fix it or replace it.

Turning on then off quickly like this is usually a bad sign for the TV. Try disconnecting all inputs, moving it to a different room and plugging it in. If it powers up and stays on, the TV is not the issue, return it to it's normal location and power it up with nothing but power connected, if it still works slowy start adding the inputs you had connected before until one causes it to shut off.

Follow that input wire back, which ever device is attached has actually caused the problem and should be repaired or replaced. If the TV works in another room but powers on and off with only power connected when back in it's usual location then remove all plugins except the TV from the wall outlet or surge bar the TV is plugged into and test again. If this still causes the TV to turn off after 2 seconds call an electrician, if the TV works this way start plugging the other devices back in one at a time until one of them causes it to power off. If this is the case it's likely a 2 pronged device, like a phone charger is at fault and should be moved elsewhere in the home.

If none of this testing gets the unit to power up, it's likely the main power board inside has failed, if this is the case I would recommend replacing the TV as the currently retail for less than $250 for the 1080p models. Repair would likely cost between $160-$200 and you would have little or no warranty depending on the repair centers policy.

Hope this helps FixYa,


PS. If you have follow up questions regarding this TV or the testing methods I've explained, simply reply to this answer and you can continue receiving assistance under a single charge.

Your set has a problem with its power supply. If it is under warranty, have it replaced ASAP. If your warranty has expired, you can take the set to any good repair shop - ask for an estimate before having any work done to it.

First, look at the screen in darkened room to see if you can see any slight glow from the screen, if it does, then the problem can be the T-CON (not getting the 12vdc) or the main logic board not feeding the signals to the T-CON board.
if not, next place to check will be the power supply module, make sure it has 24vdc which is required by the backlight inverter to work, the reason for not having 24vdc can be from bad DC filter caps (leaking/bulging top, high ESR) or short circuits in the inverter board which will cause the 24vdc supply to go into shutdown mode, so you may have to disconnect the power cable that feed the inverter board to see if the 24vdc will work without the inverter board hookup, you will need to apply about 3~4 amp of load to the 24vdc to make sure it can handle that. There are fuses on the backlight inverter boards also. So there is some troubleshooting you will have to do to find out the causes of the problem you are having.

If you are going to DIY and have proper tools, electronics knowledge, and know safety precaution then please read on:

Or, just make sure to use caps with low ESR, 105c, high ripple current and long life rating such as PANASONIC FM or FC series.

I purchased a Proscan TV 26LB30QD and the DVD player is not working. It is under warranity? What do I do? I purchased it from Circuit City before it went out of business.

You will find a new company has bought out the circuit city name and is honoring extended warranty for them--not easy to get thru to but try and see if you can get it resolved--I worked for CC in 2001--nasty company to work for and they did not treat most people fairly--Frankly--I am glad they are gone--if you have questions reply here and I will try to help you.

If you purchased it with a warranty, you may be able to get Panasonic to repair it. Check your warranty to get the conditions for returning it. The "new" Circuit City is operating. I do not believe they will honor purchases under the "old" Circuit City. However you can ask at

Purchased tv from circuit city when going out of business was told warranty would begin on date of purchase from manufacturer. 30 days later tv went black. manufacturer says they don't warranty product...

Your warranty should very well be honored and yes, the warranty does start right when you leave the store as long as you have the original receipt, otherwise, they might just honor the production date via serial number. If you have the original receipt, then you need to tell them this and speak to someone higher up, like a manager. It is not your fault Circuit City went out of business.
