Question about Polaroid FLM-3732 Television

Green/blue vertical lines, no pix, screeching

If it gets a picture, it's intermittent... screeches, then has green/blue vertical lines... Is mine a capacitor problem, too?

    I had the same symptoms,screeching in sound and picture breaking into lines.The caps were the problem.Don't worry about the 35volt vs.10 volt rating.Don't ever replace a cap with one that has a LOWER voltage rating OR a radically higher rating.For original 10 volt caps don't use 6 volt(they would probably blow up due to excess current leakage)and don't try to use 150 volt(over time they might do something called deforming that is peculiar to electrolytic caps.The 35 volt radio shack units will work just fine and are unlikely to give future problems.There is a third 1000 micrfarad cap not far from the other 2 that didn't look too good to me.I would suggest replacing that one while you are doing all the dissassembly to get to the others.

This is a cap problem too.There is a third 1000 microfarad cap near the other 2 I would suggest you replace while you are in there.The instructions are very good and if you follow them carefully it should be an easy repair.If you have a friend who does some electronics and are unsure of your ability it will be duck soup for anyone who can solder.

Spots all over the tv panasonic pt-61lcx65


If they are large colored circles behind the picture scenes, mine had it too. Fix was as simple as service technician plugging into the EPROM and loading a software update. Picture then was better than day1.

My RCA is screeching


To install the color wheel, turn off and unplug the tv, take off the lower back casing (17 star type screws), remove the lamp door, remove the lower back casing. Look just left of the lamp you will see 3 smaller star type screws near a small circuit board (which is on the color wheel), remove those screws unplug cable from color wheel, unplug other end of 2nd cable from tv circuit board (just to the upper left nearest to the color wheel.

All you have to do is install the color wheel, plug in both cables, put the back on and place the lamp door back in its position, the lamp door pushes in a lillte blue lever which allows the lamp bulb to light up.

I'm in the process of doing the same myself on my RCA same model. Where did you buy the color wheel from?
