Question about Polaroid FLM-3734B 37 in. LCD HDTV

1 Answer

My TV won't turn on

I have a 37'' Polaroid TV that's just over 2 years old. For the past month or so every time I would turn on the TV it would make a loud humming/electronic sound. Today when I went to turn on the TV the blue light turned on but my TV didn't. I tried several times trying to turn off the TV but to no avail, it won't turn off, but there's no picture either. It's just that dang blue light. Can you help?

    I have the same problem, Turn on TV and no picture just a blank black screen like it was still off but the blue power light is on and will not shut off. I have found that unplugging and plugging it back in seem to resets something in it. And then it will work properly but this is a pain where the sun does not shine. So yes any help from any one would be great
    Tom. Thanks

Here's the fix:

http://www.fixya.com/support/t293971-37_polaroid_lcd_tv_turn

I had the same problem with mine. Replaced the capacitors and now it works. When you open the back of the tv up, the problem is with the 2 capacitors on the upper left of the top card. Mine didn't look damaged except for a very, very slight bulge on the top. If you've never soldered anything, you might want to take it to someone who has, otherwise, it's a pretty simple fix. I was surprised I could do it so easily.

If the warranty is still good, make Polaroid replace it. They make shoddy products and should pay for it. And never buy another Polaroid again.

Doesn't turn on


Pretty good chance the power supply board is bad. A number of capacitors will become leaky and you lose all power. Some techs still know how to do component Laval service but most just change the board $$$$

BROKEN TV


Polaroid has a 1 year manufacturers in-home warranty on 32+ inch TV's. Contact them and they should send someone to fix the TV for you.

Since it is still under warranty make it Polaroids "problem"

hope that helps!
