20 Most Recent Polaroid FLM-2632 Television - Page 2 Questions & Answers


Hi bud101b.

I had a similar problem with my 42 in Philips LCD HDTV. I may have the solution to your problem.


Here was MY problem. My Power Supply Board had several bad capacitors. I opened my TV (warranty was expired of course) and found four bulged capacitors on the PSB. Many major electronics companies Philips/Magnavox, Sony, Panasonic, and others were sold capacitors that failed in 2-5 years instead of 10-20. The capacitors fail prematurely due to a lack of preservatives. Unfortunately, they were installed in all sorts of devices and cause a wide range of failure problems.


Here are some options for you to consider.


1. Have it fixed by a professional $$$$$$$??????? (Is it under warranty?)

Remember, TVs CONTAIN HIGH VOLTAGE AND CAN KILL YOU! Do this at your own risk.

2. Open your TV and find PSB. (The board that the power cord plugs into) Check for faulty caps. If you find some (bulged or leaking) bad caps replace the entire board. They can be found online. I would definitely shop around though.


3. Remove and then replace individual faulty caps. This takes some soldering skill.

Caps are inexpensive and if you can take care of it yourself it will save you hundreds.


This may be your problem. If you determine that it might be.

I have a Tip/How TO tutorial on this site that may also help. It will, at the very least, give you a general idea of the process. It gives step by step instructions for replacing caps on PSB #715t2432-2. If this is your board you are in luck. Here is the Link: Fixing the Philips Turns/shuts off on its own problem.


Hope this helps.

If you have any questions for me, please comment on this page. I will be happy to assist you to the best of my ability. Thanks for using Fixya.

The entire board costs around $250 right now because they are in high demand right now. They can be found at tv-part.com but supplies are limited. I would definitely shop around though.

Chances are your television is still set up for cable. A simple setting needs to be adjusted to enable broadcast tv reception. Turn on your tv and open the on-screen menu. Look for something labeled "Input Select". It might be listed under something like "Tuner Options". Somewhere in there, there should be a switch that will switch the tv from "CATV" (Cable) to "TV" or "BROADCAST" (Ordinary Tuner Mode)

Hope this helps and good luck,
--Matt

Your power supply board needs to be REPAIRED not REPLACED, replacing the board will just make the problem happen again in two years or less, if you can use a screwdriver you can send me the board and I will repair it for less than it would cost you to do it yourself ($50) with the correct components. Email for further instructions! Cory Schindler cschindler24@yahoo.com

usually the first thing to check is your connections to the tv , if good you may have a power supply or backlighting problem. if connections are good, unplug it first ofr a few minutes the plug it in and try it again. if bad call for service.

Often when using a Sky box, one doesn't use the channel tuning feature of the Polaroid HDTV. Often one connects the Sky box to a component video input, and the Sky box does the tuning.

I hope that helps.

I can help you with your Polaroid HDTV.

If the DVD doesn't start when you place it in the player, look for the Play button on the remote control. There may be a TV/DVD switch on the remote that would need to be changed to DVD.

If the manual below doesn't match your TV, please post the model number of your Polaroid HDTV/DVD combo for more specific help.

I hope that helps.
