Question about Polaroid TLA-01911C TV
TLA-04011C similar problems as with all polaroid tvs but red led only never turns blue. I looked at the boards but are different than the FLM type and didnt see any obvious bad caps. Advise?
Why do questions like this one show as having "Solutions"?
Does anyone else find it irritating when you click on all the "solved" questions only to find a bunch of dead ends?
I waste so many hours of my life clicking these damn things.
Once in a while you'll find a good solution with in depth, straight forward information.
The rest of the time it's just a bunch of uneducated guesses or people trying to bump it.
I don't contribute to what I just spoke of, let me advise the closest I've come yet to fixing this TV... RED LED, NO PICTURE = Bad Main board. I've changed out a dozen or so caps that read high for ESR. Most of them were the 220uF/25v. I'm going to revisit this board again as I neglected to test the tiny little electrolytic 10uF, 22uF variety. From there, I plan to chase the voltage around the board and see where it stops. If you're not insane like me, and you would like an easy solution, buy a new main board. But I'm crazy, and I'm going to whip this bastard TV, I promise.
If you don't hear from me soon, just know that I fought my hardest in battle, and in doing so, I died with honor. ...even though I left a load in my shorts from getting electrocuted by the Polaroid.

It is the main control board of the TV. I had a repair tech come out due to the extended warranty. They are replacing the control board and the tech says it happens frequently.
I will NEVER buy from Walmart again as it has been 3 months awaiting the part and they will not step in and resolve this with the warranty provided.
So much for customer service these days....
