Looking for driver for 15" LCD Television - Model: FLM-1511

Hello, The picture on my screen is really fuzzy compared to my other monitor. I figured I might need the proper driver. First, will this fix my problem? Second, where can I find the dirver... Polaroid said they do not support this product since it is a WW moel (World Wide). Thanks for your help! Billy

    1268x768 is not wide enough and there is not an option in the screen adjust to widen the picture.

    So I my only option is to use the current setting of 1268x1024. This is when the text appears to be fuzzy.

    I am going to try to increase the size of my font to see if that helps.

    Do you have any other suggestions?

Hi Billy. You don't normally need drivers for a monitor of this size. The most common cause of of this problem is that your old monitor was set to a lower resolution than this monitor is designed to support. LCD monitories have a 'native' resolution meaning that the screen itself is made up of 1280 x 768 liquid crystal cells. You need to change the screen resolution to 1280 x 768; assuming you are using Windows XP click with the right mouse button an an empty part of the desktop and select Properties (or click Start, then click Control Panel then click Display), on the Settings tab, under Screen resolution, drag the slider bar until it says 1280x768 and then click Apply. Post back if you still have the same problem after this.

    1268x1024 is bigger than you're monitor's native resolution, you're is doing it's best to spoof it but that's why it's fuzzy. You should have an auto-adjust button (check the manual) that will force the monitor to sort it's self out.
    Also in Display settings you'll find an advanced button, in the advanced panel you'll see the option to adjust the refresh rate, try adjusting this to 60Hz and then try auto-adjust.
    Next check the manual to find out what the optimum refresh rate is because the refresh rate can effect the monitor controller's ability to display the picture correctly.
    According to Polaroid 1280x768 is you're monitors native resolution but given that they don't actually make it you may wish to check the manual to see if it says different.
    1280x768 is a 16:9 aspect ratio (TV Widescreen) resolution where as 1268x1024 and 1024x768 are 4:3 aspect ratio (old shape TV) resolutions so the monitor is going to struggle to spoof them.
    I'll check again with Polaroid's documentation and if I have anymore info I'll post it here for you.

    OK, according to the original manual for the FLM-1511 the native resolution as actually 1024x768 and it's a 4:3 aspect ratio monitor, also the optimum refresh rate is 60Hz.
    Sorry about that, the information from Polaroid themselves is conflicting.
    Also the auto-adjust button is on your remote control and is marked AUTO.ADJ

Polaroid 15" HD Widescreen LCD 1511-TLXB, turn on, stays on for about 30 seconds to 1 minute and then screen goes black, no sound, no menu

Do you have to turn it back on with the remote after this?

If so, then you may have set a timer by accident through the menu system.

More information would be required.

Bad Cable Input

Try using your RCA imput to see how the picture looks compared to the tuner picture,is possible your tuner imput is bad,make sure the conector is not loose,the overall picture should look different but not fuzzy all over,using a dvd picture thru the aux (rca)imput should show you the difference.If the conector is loose only it could be repaired but if it is solid the tuner might be bad and it will need to be replaced along with any board it might be mounted to.Let us know how it goes or if you need more information.
