Re: Polaroid FLM-2601 Power
First off replacing the caps is not easy even for a tech. Double surface boards are soldered on both sides. The caps have a value printed on them like 1000@63 They also have polarity " they have to be put in in a certain direction" If you do something wrong you blow the works. Best to have it done by a tech.

Hello sir. If you are still having the problem, try to replace these 3 caps C928 c932 c909 these are all 47 micro farrad at 35v 105c The one cap C932 is covered by hear shrink so you may not see it. Let me know if that works out for you.
First- unplug it, Second- remove the back( can be tricky), Third- follow the AC cord to the power supply board and your there. Look for any Caps that may be bulged and replace them. Sometimes caps can be bad and look ok. Let ame know how you do>
I repaired mine the same way, I replaced the two defective 1000uf 35v capacitors and mine works as good as new. The capacitors are ruined by heat, as they are positioned at the top of the power supply board where all the heat is (a poor design, in my opinion). If you do this make sure that you use high temperature electrolytic capacitors rated at 105 deg. C. minimum. I used caps rated at 125 deg. C. hoping it will last a little longer this time.
The Flm2601 is plagued with a poorly designed SMPS and needs to be replaced... The ONLY outlet selling those is Fox International and the PS model number is #MLT166A... I do have the manual for that PS but it won't do much good - it usually buldges several 16v caps when it goes then goes into a domino failure...
Good news is the supplies aren't expensive, I think the last one I bought was around $70.00 dollars and it's a plug and play.
