Question about Polaroid FLM-4201 42 in. LCD Television

3 Answers

Loud Noise We purchased our Polariod flat screen from Wal-Mart Oct of 06, we love it but recently it have been making this constant beep for the first 10 min as it warmed up. Now the beep is so loud it will run you out of the room and seems to last 20 min or so. What is going on?

I wrote an in depth guide (with pictures) about how to fix this issue - it's really easy! It only cost me £1 (about $2) to fix.

The information that superboy2021 supplied works. I found this site looking for a schematic for my Polaroid TV to see where the capacitors for the speakers were on the board. I downloaded this file and it took me about 30 minutes to solder the two new capacitors on.

Sounds like The main power supply regulator section circuit fault. Either it will be a separate board, or the part of main board. Check and replace damaged component/s at its main power regulator [SMPS] section circuit. Contact any service technician. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Pull up older posts. http://electro-medical.blogspot.com/
It will be best to replace the power supply regulator board as card basis rather than making "Surgery" to it; which usually will make loss for both money and time. Even though you can make it right, it will cost around an amount equal to the cost of a new board; including the cost of (spare parts + service charge) More to say, most of the spare parts to it will be difficult to get from open electronic spare part market. This is true to most of the flat panel TV power supply boards; irrespective of its brand and screen size.

Replace it, the cost to repair will be close to a new one. Flat screens are dirt cheap right now.

I got bush TV cant get off device cuz havent got remite


Purchase a Logitec Harmony remote. When you set it up, the software asks for the device you intend to control. Enter in your make, and model number. After the remote setup is complete, you should be able to control it.

I would check on the logitec website (logitec.com) before you purchase to make sure your device is supported before making the purchase. But they support just about anything under the sun.
