Question about Polaroid FLM-2011 Television

1 Answer

Input setting I have a model FLM 2017. Every time I turn it on, I have to change the input setting to get a picture. This is a recent problem, with no obvious cause. Is there a way to fix the setting so I don't have to change it each time I use the TV?

When you turn off the set, are you turning it off by running the power through a cable or satellite box? If you are shutting down the set from the AC mains side the set can lose all of its user set-up. In most TV models, the main power supply must have the AC mains connected.

The power supply goes in to a standby mode when the TV is turned off by its own power switch (not by the AC mains). The supply puts out enough power to keep the uPC and the user memory active.

If the set is properly turned off and it is losing its user set-up, it is possible that there is a fault in part of the uPC circuits. Depending on the model of set, there may be a lithium battery, or memory capacitor, or an EEPROM for keeping the user set-up memory.

I have a panasonic color tv. Model # CT-27L8SG, sept 2003. Recently , when I turn it in it says Video 1 but not sound or picture.

Do you have anything plugged into your video 1 input? If so, is there a signal reaching your set's input? Try other inputs and see what happens.

The picture size resets when the tv is turned off then on.

It also resets when you switch to a different Input... IF you have the Auto Aspect Ratio set to On! To set the Picture Size so that it won't change back each time, switch to the Input you wish to change (you'll have to do this for each Input separately), then go to- MENU > Picture > Theater Settings > Auto Aspect Ratio > and set it to Off. Once you've done this, your Picture Size setting will remain, even after powering off, or switching inputs ;)

I'm trying to use a Polaroid FLM-3201 as my computer monitor. The screen resolution is poor, so I have tried to change the settings in the control panel. However, when I do so the Tscreen goes to snow and...

use manual settings for this input. i've had this issue before. when trying to watch movie from netbook, similar message occur. got to manual phase settings, played with adjustment and: ta-da! got good picture. sometimes auto mode for this input is not catching up.
Good luck,

My Polaroid FLM-3232 does not display over air HDTV channels

There is no such thing as a 'digital antenna;' any antenna with sufficient gain and bandwidth will receive whatever signals there are available.
You may have to change the input source via your set's menu so it is looking at the antenna input; it may be set to cable currently.

Tv screen has turned blue and I can't watch tv

i think by accident you have changed the input when you went to change the volume. look for a button labeled " input" or "video" select on the remote and scroll through the various choices. you should get your picture back.

Polaroid flm 2017 turns on then goes black sound still works

This problem is often replated to a leaking power supply capacitor on the secondary side of psu rated at +/- 2000uf at 12v...yup 4 bucks should do it...the hardest part is often opening the power supply up screws are often located underneath rubber feet....never make contact with the primary ac supply side even after it is unplugged reservoir capacitor high voltage can store a charge for long time and be dangerous to contact.
