Question about Polaroid FLM-323B Television

1 Answer

Picture won't come in clear until TV "warms up" for 15 minutes or more

Help!!! Our TV picture doesn't come in clearly until the TV has "warmed up" or been on for at least 15 minutes or more. It has lines that seem to almost "roll" on the screen or it seems like a really shaky picture and the sound doesn't come in right until the TV is warmed up. What could be the cause of this and how can we fix it? It is driving us crazy. We should be able to turn the TV and the satellite on and have a clear picture right away. Thanks for any assistance.

Change the capacitors first per the instructions in the link below. Symptoms could be anything from high-pitched hum to no picture at all. On these defective models, I would start at the caps and work back. It won't hurt to replace them anyway.

My lg plasma tv is cutting off the edges of the shows we are watching. I cant find a setting that will take care of it. Can you help


hmm normally these settings are found in the picture settings of the set top box or just a setting in the tv's picture settings now there might be an option to say fill screen that may work best for some or leave the tv in 16:9 some broadcasts may only be in 4:3 at times this is normal broadcasting and not much can be done unless the setting on the picture option is set to fill screen

Black screen, green light on the bottom is on, electric plug is on house plug, no picture, was working fine last night, now only black screen!


Do a hard reset to this set, and then check. If it do not help you, check and replace its main digital board. It will be faulty.
There are two methods to reset TVs. The first is simple to do; a Hard Reset. The other is somewhat skilled; is a Factory Reset (System Reset). To make it a hard reset, just unplug the TV from AC mains wall socket, and re-plug it back after 15 minutes or so. If you do this by overnight is better. This procedure will make it a hard reset. If you want to make it a system reset [Factory Reset]; you have to enter its service mode option, and select the factory reset option. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here.

I have sound but no picture on my tv


This is a popular question. Most of the time you either need to make sure all connections are not loose or just need to turn off your tv and receiver and unplug. Wait for 1 minute then reboot.
I recommend this short video as it walks you through some diagnostics for other possible problems.

Can it be repaired and can I do it myself?


No, It's dangerous to repair a TV yourself, it contains hazardous electric currents. Most of such Electronic or Electric Gadgets have Hazard Warning on their Backside "CAUTION: NO USER SERVICEABLE PARTS INSIDE, RISK OF ELECTRIC SHOCK! DO NOT OPEN!!"

So, please consult Authorized Service Professional to repair your TV.

My tv has gone some orange colour


Try unplugging your tv and anything connected to it - you might want to take a picture first so you have a reference. I would also unplug everything connected to the tv: cable, stereo, etc. Wait a few minutes, then plug in and re-connect everything.

You can also go into your TV's setup menu and adjust the picture settings - try restoring the default settings first.

Portable DVD PLAYER: I don't get any audio. I'm batteried-up, plugged in, volume high, remote working, picture good -- just no audio. Any suggestions:


Maybe it has a failure in the audio amplifier, if there's no sound even with headphones or the internal speakers, if there's audio only with headphones.
