Question about Polaroid TTM-2401 TV

1 Answer

Polaroid ttm-2401 TV is at the most 3yrs old. Worked fine yesterday 6/21/08 left to go to work, 4 hour shift, came home and there was a fine vertical strip down the center. Sound is fine. Turned TV off and back on, picture came on but went back to the thin line (probably 1/2 inch to 1 inch). Picture has come back a few times but not for long.

    I'm having the exact same problem! I thought maybe one of my kids dropped a magnet in or near the TV or something, but I didn't see anything like that. I unplugged the TV overnight, but that doesn't seem to work either. I can hear the TV and change the channels, but there is still just a thin vertical line down the center of the TV while the rest of the screen is black. Does anyone have any suggestions?

There is a 10 -15 minute delay before sound comes on. It's a Polaroid TTM2401 tv 5 yrs old

Change all the capacitors in and around around the sound output section. Usually Philips capacitors shows a some sort of leak after some years. I says this according my service experience. I'm working with this kind of electonic entertainement equipements since 1974. We cannot predict the exact capacitor poise the problem. That is why recomeds to change all of them. It won't cost so much.

From your description it sounds like you TV is experiencing a shut down and re-set condition. This is usually caused by some type of voltage irregularity in the power supply section of the TV. Unfortunately, this is not an easy fix and will require a trip to the shop. Get an estimate before approving repair. In the new world of disposable electronics the cost of repair may exceed the value of the set.

Your TV will need a HD converter because it doesn't have a digital tuner but only if you are receiving over the air signals. If you have a cable box or satellite receiver, then you do not need the converter HD box.
