Question about Polaroid Televison & Video
Check in set up for power options see if program set
This issue is related to a power problem in as much as the TV turns off on it's own.
The problem is consistent with overheating on the power supply board of the TV. it might have worked fine in the past, but that's electronics for you. Power surge, irregular power supply, excess power supply, etc can affect the unit thereby making it to misbehave.
The power supply board of the TV has few capacitors and IC. If any of these IC's gets short or become weak, it can cause the TV to turn off on it's own.
When current passes from electric outlet to the power supply board of TV. The current also goes to the weak/faulty part, then the current stops or slow and the board overheats and TV shuts off on it's own.
To solve this issue, check the power supply board and read it with a meter and continuity tester, in order to detect the faulty part and replace the faulty part on the board which is short due to which power supply board
You can buy these capacitors at any Fry's or Radioshack store or you can order them online at vendors like "mcmelectronics.com"(look for electrolytic capacitors). After replacing these capacitor(capacitors) most likely the normal operation will be restored. Or you can by a refurbished complete power board from www/shopjimmy.com to save you some stress.
Note: There may be also some other causes for this symptom ,like a defective T con board ,or main board,but the bulged top capacitors are the most common cause for this issue.
If you don't have the ability to read the fault, then you might be needing the help of a repairman or you can call a friend that has the ability to help you out.
I wish you the best of luck.

SOURCE: POLAROID FLM-2011 REMOTE CODES
My cox remote guide lists for the Polaroid TVs the following codes:
LCD TVs: 1276 and 1316
TVs: 0765, 0865, 1276, 1314, 1316, 1326, 1327, 1328, 1991, and 1992
I hope one of them works.

The solution at this point would be to get the power supply repair since new boards are not longer being manufactured. In about 95% of the time if the LCD doesn't power up or turns OFF by itself or need to be unplug for some time to make work again; those are the symptoms of a dying or defective power supply.
If your TV is less then a year old, still under manufacturers warranty.
I service these power supplies, for more info write to [email protected]

i had the same problem. i opened the panel in the back of the tv (3 screws) and opened the aluminum panel (3 screws). there's a red led light located at the bottom left corner of the top board. to the right of the led light, you will find this thing with 4 switches. i turned the two bottom switches "burn" and "epmw" to on. so far tv have been working.
