Tv won't come on

Nothing comes on the screen when I turn my tv on...the power light is on, but nothing else. Polaroid indicates the set is fine after I sent it in but it still doesn't work after I got it back! Any Suggestions? Mike

    I have the same problem. I will try to turn it on at the unit and remote, and it will not come on. Then red light blinks, but no power. If you press it about 80 to 100 times (not exagerating) it will finally come on. Its almost like the old tube systems that have to warm up, but this obviously doesnt have tubes (i hope not anyway). If you have any suggestions i would love to hear them

    The problem I had with turning my Polaroid on was a simple fix! I was having problems turning the TV would stutter and sputter and finally turn on after MANY tries... called support at Polaroid and the tech asked me to re-set the system setting to factory default... LIKE MAGIC the TV turns on and off at my command like a good TV

I plugged in a computer and changed the input to VGA and the TV went blank

It sounds like your tv is in sleep mode.

What are the settings for the computer? Make sure it is set for the vga output. If it is a laptop, this is usually done with a function (FN) key. On your settings screen you can set the resolution and which monitor you are using.

The white screen and nothing else usually indicates a failure of the filter capacitors in the power supply board. When these capacitors go out the voltages are not correct so the TV can not power up right. You can rebuild the power board by replacing the bad capacitors and this should bring the TV back to life. Here is a link to a repair guide for this power supply board.

I hope this helps,

No picture on TV with powerlight on

If you press the power button *on* your TV (rather than using the RC), does the power light still stay on red rather than turn green?
