Question about Polaroid FLM-3232 Television

Polaroid FLM 3232 is making a loud crackling noise overpowering volume

I purchased the Polaroid FLM 3232 back in July 2006 after reading GREAT reviews on this product. However, after 8 months with no problems, my television has started to make a loud crackling noise overpowering the volume. It does this continously and now, the resolution has started to decrease. In addition, it has no response to the remote and no response when we try to turn it off or increase/decrease volume using the buttons on the tv--I have to unplug it to turn it off. Please advise, thank you.

    I get the crack/poping ONLY through my cable connection to this cramp TV. I use my VCR as the tuner and use another input connection other then coaxle connection. The side connection. Yes, broke just past warranty. Never buy this TV even it's FREE. Also can not use both component input connection. PIP set in stone to what can be viewed at the sametime. No way to watch 2 different TV channels at sametime. Maybe there is some ****** out there that buy this from me before I get all the other issues I have read about this TV. Want? Interent is a must for electronics because warranty does $h!T. I still have my ols CRT TV with ONLY manual channel switch and rabbit ears. It works still. New means new problems and new to the landfill. CRAMP, CRAMP TV. Manual isn't even good for a fire!!! Who paid off the people that did the reveiws on this TV. America gotta hate DUM-O-CRAZY. Profitters... Quality products? Only if kills ya. Sorry for the venting. I am going to use my computer for everything "F" new TV's.

Pull the back pf the TV off and remove all the boards in the center. Take the board to your nearest radio shack and tell the you need new resisters for the boards. buy a solder iron and replace all resisters that have pop'ed tops with same resisters.

Your only solution is to change the sound to mono. Eventually the power supply will go and the tv won't work.

Polaroid flm-3232 powers on but makes a loud squeling noise picture distorts sometimes


Look at the power supply first; look for burnt parts, bad capacitors, etc. Look for 5vdc, 12vdc, and 24dvc.

3232 polaroid tv,makes popping noise when i turn it on.


this sounds like the problem most LCD tv's get with swelled up capacitors in the power supply board. look for circular cylinder shaped parts rapped in plastic with writting on the sides, and metal tops, if the top is rounded over, not flat, it is bad. replace them.
