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.

I have the same TV with the same problem. I am sorry that all the answers are so silly and basic. I just open up mine to check all the compositors to see if their are any Bulging or to see if anything looks damage. I will pull the Power supply and start checking the compositors. and let you know. I will look in other places first to see if I can get some REAL Answers. Poco Zocko Actor

Sony pfm-42x1 flickering screen when turning tv on


OKAY I found the Problem!! Bad Caps Compositors. I Proved this in 2 ways. First I took off the Back(always make sure the TV is UNPLUG) In the photo above I put my finger on the capacitors. I found some that where NOT FLAT ON TOP(You can kinda see in the photo too). I could feel a little nipple on top.(Some times you can see if their busted open but not in this case) so I felt them and the bottom right and top left area in red in the photo where not flat. I took my dryer(My wife really) and warmed them up for about 2 minuets each then another minuet rotating back then forth. I leaned the t.v. up to lean on the frame and plug it in. I continued warming the capacitors up and in about 2 Min the T.V. has stop blinking. Much better then the 20-30 min. So the hunt for the Capacitors is on. It will be some work to get the boards out. If everything is done delicately The Soldor job is easy for me. I am going to buy the 8 but replace 1 board at a time until the TV works and put the other on the side for next time or put them up on E-bay. I hope this helped Please like if this helped you. ea0a96a3-fb82-4ec0-89f4-76b4080e9c6e.jpg 1b190ebd-5d69-4553-a009-840d29ab4c87.jpg ab9b51d0-6e1d-4cce-b822-e80d0fde9163.jpg

Hi,
unfortunately the panel sounds like it cracked, that cannot be repaired and panel replacement will cost more than new tv. They make clear plastic protective screens for lcds websites like tv-armor and the like sell them.

Blurred picture, after some warm-up it back to clear picture


If the problem doesn't return after the picture becomes normal, then it could just be due to the electron gun taking longer to fire up. I don't know how old your TV is, but TVs older than ten years typically take longer to warm up than more modern sets.
