<P>Right now the 5vdc standby circuit is working but nothing else, you need to check the rest of the power supply outputs DC voltages and the DC filter caps.</P><P><B><SPAN style="FONT-SIZE: 10pt; FONT-FAMILY: 'Arial','sans-serif'">If you are going to DIY and have proper tools, electronics knowledge, and know safety precaution then please read on:<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" /><o:p></o:p></SPAN></B></P><P><SPAN style="FONT-SIZE: 10pt; FONT-FAMILY: 'Arial','sans-serif'"><o:p>&nbsp;</o:p></SPAN></P><P><SPAN style="FONT-SIZE: 10pt; FONT-FAMILY: 'Arial','sans-serif'">Please see my basic troubleshooting guide here:<o:p></o:p></SPAN></P><P><SPAN style="FONT-SIZE: 10pt; FONT-FAMILY: 'Arial','sans-serif'"><A rel='nofollow' href="http://www.fixya.com/support/r5093881-lcd_flat_panel_tv_troubleshooting_guide">http://www.fixya.com/support/r5093881-lcd_flat_panel_tv_troubleshooting_guide</A><o:p></o:p></SPAN></P><P><SPAN style="FONT-SIZE: 10pt; FONT-FAMILY: 'Arial','sans-serif'"><o:p>&nbsp;</o:p></SPAN></P><P><SPAN style="FONT-SIZE: 10pt; FONT-FAMILY: 'Arial','sans-serif'; mso-bidi-font-size: 12.0pt"><A rel='nofollow' href="http://s807.photobucket.com/home/budm/allalbums">http://s807.photobucket.com/home/budm/allalbums</A><o:p></o:p></SPAN></P><P><SPAN style="FONT-SIZE: 10pt; FONT-FAMILY: 'Arial','sans-serif'; mso-bidi-font-size: 12.0pt"><o:p>&nbsp;</o:p></SPAN></P><P><SPAN style="FONT-SIZE: 10pt; FONT-FAMILY: 'Arial','sans-serif'"><A rel='nofollow' href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Capacitor_plague">http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Capacitor_plague</A><o:p></o:p></SPAN></P><P><SPAN style="FONT-SIZE: 10pt; FONT-FAMILY: 'Arial','sans-serif'; mso-bidi-font-size: 12.0pt"><o:p>&nbsp;</o:p></SPAN></P><P><SPAN style="FONT-SIZE: 10pt; FONT-FAMILY: 'Arial','sans-serif'; mso-bidi-font-size: 12.0pt">Parts: <A rel='nofollow' href="http://www.shopjimmy.com/">www.shopjimmy.com</A><o:p></o:p></SPAN></P><P><SPAN style="FONT-SIZE: 10pt; FONT-FAMILY: 'Arial','sans-serif'">Capacitors kit: <A rel='nofollow' href="http://lcdalternatives.auctivacommerce.com/Viewsonic-C196320.aspx"><SPAN style="mso-spacerun: yes">&nbsp;</SPAN>http://lcdalternatives.auctivacommerce.com/Default.aspx</A></SPAN><SPAN style="FONT-SIZE: 10pt; FONT-FAMILY: 'Arial','sans-serif'; mso-bidi-font-size: 12.0pt"><o:p></o:p></SPAN></P><P>&nbsp;</P>

SOURCE: TV won't turn on

I have fixed many polaroids, the problems is most of the parts are contained in one self contained control box. it sounds like your power board is not funtioning. contact polaroid and let them know about your problem and see if you can get a new control panel. the contol panel only has one connection and 3 screws to replace. hope this helps.

My polaroid lcd tv, wont turn on, its 16 months old, any ideas?


Try plugging it into another outlet - one which you are certain is working. If that doesn't work, you might have a bad fuse inside your TV. If that isn't it, the power supply board may have failed.

POLAROID TLA-04011C does not turn on


The most likely the TV has a power supply related problem or it maybe just a blown fuse inside the TV.
I can't say it's 100% the problem because I can't actually look at the tv over the internet.
If by some chance the TV is still under warranty, go that route.
If not under warranty and If you have some electronic experience, you can purchase a Service Manual over the internet and diagnose the source of the problem and fix it by soldering in the new part. The Service Manual will give you circuit diagrams, test points, and part# lists. Usually, cost under $20.

I hope I shed some light on the subject for you.
