Hi,

If the power light is flashing and the screen wont come on then the power supply is failing and you will have to call an engineer to fix it up.

Goodluck,

There are a few members reporting the same issues with different brands of LCDs. The majority have power supply failures due to the amount of heat that is generated when the TV is on.
A good number of power supplies can be fix to the component level, since there are not many places that carry the service parts to fix the TVs.
I would suggest to try to find a TV technician to fix. This might not be a DIY project.
If the TV is less than a year old still under manufacturers warranty.
Good Luck.

This is most likely due to 2 problems -Temperature or a bust capacitor,

1. A PCB may crack about some of the larger components. You can inspect the PCB's for fractures, and then repair them. It may also be poor soldering that has failed. I would be checking for these things first.

2. Powering down the set fully may have also allowed the power supply to cool, weak capacitors often go out of spec when they cool, this preventing may have prevented a section of the power supply from firing up properly again. There is a simple trick...just warm the back of the TV with a hair dryer for 5-7 mins after you have unplugged the TV. Look for the little areas of holes in the back panel of TV. Use these as your guide at where to use the hairdryer, but don't hold the dryer too close (say 5-6inches away). (Make sure the dryer is on High heat). If the TV doesn't turn on after you have heated it up (like it tries to come on but then turns off) you need to unplug the TV again, this resets it. And repeat those steps till it works. Resetting the TV after it fails to turn on is the key. Also, just leave the TV on. Don't turn in off. Since it is LCD, it doesn't take much power...only a few bucks extra a month for your utility bill.

3. You can also try plugging in the TV through the USB on its panel to a computer or USB charger, and it may work. However, this is only a temporary solution.

4. If you want to go in for a long term solution, you can easily replace the whole power board or just change the faulty capacitors. You will have to open the back panel and take a look. You can make out which are faulty, because their caps will be swollen on top. Here's a pic:

Check the specifications of the faulty capacitors, and get the replacements from your local electronics shop. If you are comfortable with this, you can use a pair of needle nose pliers to G-E-N-T-L-Y pull out the defunct capacitors. Once that is done, solder in the new capacitors carefully. If are unsure how to do this, try to get a friend who knows how to do this kinda stuff do it for you, or get a qualified technician. Warning: If you do not have a background in electronics repair, or are inexperienced, get a qualified techie to do it for you.

Clearly, electronics expertise is needed at this point, and if you had electronics knowledge you would have solved the problem already :) So I don't recommend poking around on the inside unless you know what you are doing.

LCD TVs do not have high voltages inside like the old CRTs, but power line voltages may still be present and give you a bad shock.

Also modern CMOS integrated circuits (or chips) inside digital equipment are very(!) sensitive to over-voltage, short circuits or even static electricity. The simple act
of touching the wrong chip with your fingers can destroy it. A static shock too weak to give you a tingle, is strong enough to blow the integrated circuits inside your TV.

PS. The capacitors are usually 680 - 1000 micro farad and 16-35V.
You can buy the capacitors online from HERE or HERE if you wish..They cost $0.068 - $0.85 each, depending upon the model.


REMEMBER there are very dangerous voltages inside a TV that can KILL. Be sure to work SAFE when dealing with electricity. DISCONNECT THE POWER BEFORE YOU DO ANYTHING.

Hope that helps...Should you have any further questions, please feel free to post them here.

My W3201C 32" LCD TV made a loud popping noise when I turned it off. Now it will not turn on. No power. No LED light.


That would be your transformer popping and dieing. Usually the popping is followed by a burning smell which is a good indicator that the part is unrecoverable. The cost of the part is variable based on the make and model TV and is usually not too labor intensive to replace. If not under warranty, let the repair gut know that you know what the problem is. Then, ask them to quote the cost of the replacement part and part number. Then ask them to quote you their hourly rate and get a time estimate. Then, google the part number and see if the cost is reasonable.

I have 4 polaroid tv's and three of them have lines in them, green or have completely stopped working. One is a 37" lcd flatscreen, and one is a 15" ? lcd flatscreen and one is a little older that is not a...


You guessed it. They are junk.

Just to make sure things are ok on your end. Have someone check your incoming voltages on your household power. Just to make sure that you voltage is running too high or low. You can even call the power company they will come out and do it for free. Just let them know that you are loosing electronics and are concerned.

In addition, cantact your cable provider and have the check in incoming signal on the house to make sure that it is not being overdriven.

Once you are sure that YOUR utilites are fine then chauk it up to bad design in the TVs and never by polaroid again.

I have a Funai HDR-B2735 dvd/video cassette recorder with HDD. When turning the machine on, it automatically switches off with the screen displaying the message "System error 02/56" before going...


Exact same symptom as above, little flashing "W" on standby, error code 02-56 on switching the unit on, promptly turns itself off. It would help no end if Funai would publish a little bit more info about these error codes on their site, or have a forum somewhere. Gona try a factory reset and a replacement HDD, dont know if i could replace it with a new one or not. any ideas or experience with these errors would be greatly appreciated!

Hi! name's wesley. anyways, here's the problem. i just bought a new samsung 32' lcd tv and everything is great except for one thing: when i connect my ps2 to the "av 2" input, the sound comes out...


There is a problem with the AV2 input. Since this is a new set, return it for repair or exchange. DO NOT open it up as that would void the warranty.
