20 Most Recent Polaroid TTM-2003 Combo Questions & Answers

Im thinking no. but there is a way you can be sure. look under your menu settings. if under the input settings you see anything about dtv or hdtv you should be ok. the simplest solution is to do a channel search. if you only come up with whole number channels ie, 3, 12, 16. you will need a converter box. if you get channels such as 3.1 12.1 or so on then you will be ok. if you need a converter box. no worries about the price. the government has cupons avalible to offset the price by nearly 80%. simply go to google or ask and type in converter box cupons. the box its self is a breeze to set up. simply plug it into the wall. plug yout anttena wire into the plug on the converter box marked anttena. then take the cord supplied and plug it into the other male connector and into your tv. turn both on and tune your tv to channel 3 or 4. everything should come up. the remote also has a set of tv controls on it.

With the price of new ones, you are further ahead in replacing the set, cost to repair will be close if not more than a new one.

DVD signal processor chip seems defective and dvd signal board replacement may cost more than tv worth. Local tv repair shop will replace dvd board if you still want to fix it.
Hope this will help.

If yours is anything like my Polaroid FLM-373B 37", I had the same type of problem. The problem with mine was two capacitors on the display board. Took me about an hour and less than $5.00 to fix. You have to take the access panel off the back. Mine was held on with three screws. You also have to take the display board out which mine was held in with four screws. The capacitors stand straight up on the board and are round with either black or silver colored on the top. Look for two silver ones that may be bulged on the top or are leaking. If you find this, that probably is your problem. I hope this helps. If you need more help, please let me know.

Yes, you do because it doesn't have a digital ATSC tuner: http://www.ezdigitaltv.com/Converter_Box.html

Depending what type of camers you got you can hook it up to the tv or by a converter cartrige. I did not see what type you got so my answers was based on brand and type here.

This set is listed as having the ATSC (Advanced Television Systems Committee) tuner. This tuner provides reception of digital over-the-air (antenna/rabbit ears) signals and would therefore not need a converter box fir that use.

If you are trying to receive un-encrypted digital signals from cable, the ATSC tuner does no good. The set would then require a QAM (quadrature amplitude modulation) tuner. I am not sure if this set has a QAM tuner or not. Even if it did not, your cable provider must provide a way for you to receive their signal and should make their converter box available to you.

Hope this helps explain things a little,

Chances are good that both the old remote and the new remote are OK. A TV repair facility or, in some cases, your local Radio Shack dealer may have an infra-red indicator that will show if the remotes are outputiing any infra-red light. This does not confirm that the data riding on the light carrier waves is good data, but in most cases if the remote is putting out light it is also puting out good data.

Since you have two factory original remotes with the same problem and one of them is brand new it is more likely the problem is in the TV itself. Impossible to say without inspection, but the first suspect would be the infra-red receiver. Although you did not spend a lot on the set oroginally it would still be worth the repair if your loacl servicer is a fair one.

Good luck!

I do not have good news for either of you. These are notorious for having cheap lasers in them and their original purchase price usually makes a repair cost prohibitive. If you are having an intermittent problem where the disc will freeze - then play - then freeze - then play this is often the first indicator that the laser is failing. One easy way to confirm this is to play a compact disc in the player. CDs are easier for the player to read than DVDs are. If it plays CD and you continue to experience problems with DVDs this usually indicates a laser failing. Remember, when buying a consumer electronic product, the price of a thing usually reflects the quality of that thing.

As for cleaning discs; if a laser has enough residue built up on it to prevent the error correction system from overcoming it, then the microfine brushes on a cleaning disc will probably be ineffective at removing that build up. Cleaning discs are akin to the old VCR cleaning tapes, usually ineffective.

Sorry for the bad news,

It is NTSC-M which means analog with color so yes, you will need a box.

I've found it works after the set has warmed up. I don't know what the problem is. The other thing is I will just keep ejecting - just hit the eject button over and over - open/close etc and after a while it plays. It's REALLY annoying

That's because Polaroid is the ONLY place you'll be able to get one... Polaroid didn't build that unit, a company called Prima built that TV and put the Polaroid brand on it. They do that for several other mnaufacturers also like ADVENT and AUDIOVOX and technicians have been screaming their heads off for years. It goes something like this, "...if you're too *&^%&^&$ stupid to build and support the TV yourself why put the customer through hell when it breaks down - and it will eventually break down. The answer's simple, just quite farming your dirty work out of the country." Prima is located somewhere in Canada, good luck finding them.. And a better known PWW Services are here in the states. But like Prima, the lights are on and no one is home... On a bright note though, you can go to PWW Services web site and find an assortment of user manuals for the various brands free... So, about your problem - - this one is a definately take it to the shop. And don't be surprised if it takes forever for the tech to blindly trace test every component in the SMPS just to get the darn thing running again. It will be a bit like threading a needle with a sludge hammer / blind folded... Good Luck! Bill

Use code search on your GE URC to find something that works. You may need separate codes for TV and DVD player. If a search through all codes stored in the URC fails, try a different one.
