The fix to the black screen problem which is posted on Fixya has a pretty good chance to fix this too.If you have a soldering iron it costs less than $10 and will eventually have to be done anyway.The site has very good instructions,just follow them carefully.

When I try to turn on my polaroid tv (FLM2601),it wont turn on.


Try unpluging the unit for a few minutes. And try again.
To reach Polaroid's warranty services call 1-866-289-5168. Polaroid's TV warranties cover the units for 1 year similar to most manufacturer warranties. For TVs less than 31 inches Polaroid requires you to carry the unit into a servic center for repair. For TVs 32 inches and larger Polaroid provides in home service.

Buzzing sound


Hello, This is a problem with the switching transformer or the ballast used to fire the backlight. You will have to replace the ballast and or the switching transformer soon. In order to replace these items, I would suggest taking it to a qualified TV technician for servicing. I hope this helps, Thank you, Shuttle83 http://www.electron-age-technologies-llc.com

Buzzing sound after only 2-1/2 years of service


I suspect you have a bad set of capacitors in the control module. This problem usually starts out as a high pitched noise but can lead to the TV not turning on. Please see the link below, posted by StivO. It gives step by step instructions on how to replace the capacitors. This is a very inexpensive fix.

Insignia lcd 37''powering off and right back on by itself!


Hi Ed,
Since the TV is less then a year old and still under manufacturers warranty, I would suggest to take back to the vendor to get it fix because this LCD behavior is not going to get any better.
The failure on this TV is related to a power supply in most cases if the TV is turning OFF by itself or needs to be unplug to let cooldown and it works afterward.

Philips 37PF7320A/37 won't turn on


That blinking led is an error code for the audio standby board in the set. It should not go out this soon and yes it should last longer.

37" polaroid lcd tv won't turn on


I have the same problem, very unreliable, just tried solution posted on this board and it worked. Turn on - while LED Bliinks push the channel button - also tap back a few times not too hard not too soft - possible problem(s) here, as suggested on tyhis board, capacitors (sic?), poor soldering connection, (In which case tapping might make it worse, but if you have no pic, nothing lost nothing gained), good luck, repair work suggested at about 200 bucks on this board.
