Flm-3232 Power supply


I have a flm-3232 that will show standby (red led) and then show powered on (steady blue led) but nothing happens . The screen stays black with no backlight or any sound. I was told that this was a power supply problem and I was wondering if you still had one?

I have a flm 3232 as well and it is about a year and a half old and just went out completely. No LED light on at all and when I check the fuse the fuse was blown. I replaced the fuse and had no luck. everyone is telling me the control box. what is the control box?

The problem is with your "control box". I just went through this also. You didn't say how old your TV was. My TV was 1 year, 3 months, 26 days old when my control box went out. I finally got the number to Polaroid and called until I got help. (don't expect any help with their call center) They sent me a new control box and the TV works fine now and the box has a 90 day warranty. Unfortunately, if your TV is older than mine was, its unlikely they will help you. You can watch ebay for a unit, they come up regularly. You will need to know which one is the model version for your TV. Look at your serial number, the 4th and 5th characters tell you which version. If your model version is 00, 01, 02, 03, A1, 23 then the unit is: *909-KS0-GF371XAH. If it is 12, 13, A2 then the unit is: *909-TE1-GF378XCH. This info on the serial #/model version was given to me be a repair tech that had a control box for sale on ebay. I have not verified the information, nor did I have to use it, but it sounds accurate and he seemed knowledgeable. I hope this helps, good luck.

I have a red light and thats about it...i have a 32 inch polaroid and it just wont power up


In case of FLM-3232 this can be both the main board and the power board.

I'd say the odds are in your favor that it is the power board - this is the more common scenario.

If you test the board and find that it produces proper primary voltage, though, then the problem is in the main board.

This is also curable sometimes, but unfortunately at least presently we do not offer a repair service for it.

Our Polaroid FLM 3232 has worked for four years and now all of the sudden it won't turn on....seems to be no power supply...the red standby light is not illuminated....please help we love this tv!


I hate to say it, but it is prob the main board that went bad. (the board where all the inputs get plugged into) It is possible that it might be the power supply. One thing to check is to make sure you have 25v coming from the powersupply board to the connectors that plug into the main board. If you do have 24-25v than you will have to replace the main board. If not than the powersupply.

Blue LED light comes on but nothing else happens when turned on


It can be the main board or the power supply, look at the power supply first since it is easier to get to, look for burnt parts, bad capacitors, etc.

Blue screen No Signal


You won't find bulged caps for that problem. Yours requires replacing the main board, not the power supply.

Are the Polaroid FLM-3232 and the Element FLX-3202


not sure if there the same but the boards inside may be.

This sounds like the problem most LCD tv's get with swelled up capacitors in the power supply board. look for circular cylinder shaped parts rapped in plastic with writting on the sides, and metal tops, if the top is rounded over, not flat, it is bad. replace them.
