Question about Polaroid 3211TLXB 32 in. LCD Television

1 Answer

I have a Polaroid 3211-TLXB -It starts up fine-everything works great - then after 10-15 minutes it freezes + picture goes to crazy grey/white lines + volume goes to maximum-won't turn off-have to unplug - after cool-down works OK again then repeats once hot. Any thoughts? Thanks.

    Thanks very much for your reply.
    I did check for bulging capacitors = all look to be OK with no bulging/leaking.
    Are the power transistors attached to the heatsinks?
    Thanks again

Hi there, this may helps you a bit. Try to unscrew the back casing. visual check the power supply section. If you notice some electrolytic capacitors are bulgy or bloated, it needs to be replaced with same value and type. Felt the power transistors which one really heats up. Over heating of electronic components or part do affects the pictures. this also need to be replace. doing preventive repairs can extend the lifespan of your TV.
Adding exhaust fan may also lessen the heat builds up on the board. Proper ventilation also helps in the performance of the TV. If this do went well maintain the fan.
Please vote and rate. Good day

Polaroid 4241-TLXB wont stay on


I think I may have just solved this issue. Remove the back covers and turn the tv on until it the screen goes black. There will be a little red led that will light up when the screen goes black. right above that light there is 4 little swiches, the bottom one is labled BURN. Switch that one to the opposite direction. I don't know how but mine has been working for a couple days now with no issues. GOOD LUCK!
