Question about Polaroid FLM-3201 Television

1 Answer

No Power to TV

This morning, my tv simply shut off. The light on the front doesn't even turn on. I unplugged the TV & waited, plugged it back in, still dead. I removed back panel, but area where there might be a fuse was not easily accessable. I have owned the TV for over 2 years, do not have extended warranty. What can I do?

I would call or contact one of the shops on FixYa and get them to fix it. For this you may need to provide a schematic, what I would suggest doing is contacting the company and asking for the service documentation for the TV and then providing that to whomever you are having fix the device or if you feel comfortable do the work yourself you can use a FixYa Expert to start you on the process of troubleshooting the problem. It sounds like you do have a power supply problem.

No sound, no picture

Hello sorry to hear that. From your description it sounds like your signal board may have been damaged by you plugging in your laptop to it. The signal board is the one with the tuner on it.

I have a Toshiba TV model 36A43 that won't power on. The same thing happened yeaterday as this morning. The tv will not power on via remote, or the manual power button. Yesterday, the same thing occurred...

It sounds like you have a switch problem at the front panel of the set. If a switch gets stuck internally the micro is trying to process the command and won't respond to any other commands. The only way to find out is to go into the set and desolder all the manual switches and see if the remote will work the set. It has a seperate detector for the remote. Thanks for using fixya. Good luck

2003 Sony Trinitron 36" television. Just shut off, light blinkin

The STANDBY light will flash if the television detects an issue within the television. Some of these issues can be resolved simply by following the steps below to reset the television.
If the issue is still unresolved after following all of the troubleshooting steps, Service will be required. Please note the number of times the STANDBY light flashes and relay that information to the service center.
  1. Turn off the television. IMPORTANT: For a projection television that uses an internal lamp, wait 5 minutes after turning off the television to allow the lamp to cool before continuing with the following steps.
  2. Unplug the television power cord from the electrical outlet.
  3. Let the television remain without power for 60 seconds.
  4. Plug the power cord back into the electrical outlet. NOTE: If the television is plugged into a power strip or surge protector, remove it from the power strip or surge protector and plug it directly into the wall outlet. If the issue is resolved, the problem is with the power strip or surge protector and not the television.
  5. Turn on the television.

Ilo tv isn't working

Try a power drain: 
1. Unplug the TV's power cable so that the TV is not grounded to the house.  Do not simply turn off a powerbar if one is in use. 2. Press and HOLD the TV's own power button for one minute to drain the capacitors. 3. Plug the TV back into a wall outlet versus a powerbar, if one is in use and see if this makes a difference.
If the TV still won't turn on but you have a LED light flashing, the problem is usually with the TV's mainboard and not the power supply or the LED wouldn't even be on.  Service is likely required.

take your tv to technician who can check your power supply, if your power is coming on and off, than a problem is not as big. firstly let him check a ht of a supply constantly, your supply is cutting.
