Top 20 Polaroid TLA-04011C 40 in. LCD TV Questions & Answers

To select a proper universal remote control, you should know about the number of digits to its set-up codes. There are 3 digit, 4 digit, 5 digit, 2 digit and even single digit codes, to some brand devices. After confirming this, check the sites linked here. Both the sites have set-up code list and set-up procedure to many popular brand remote controls. Check which brand remote control has set-up code/s to your device brand, and buy that one according to availability.

Please note: Every new universal remote control will have set-up code list, and set-up procedure along with its pack. Never accept a remote control, that hasn't both of this. For more details about the set-up codes, visit the sites Check this site too.

Probably Not. Since most universal remotes will only be good for certain functions,i.e. Volume, Channel etc... not all the features of the original remote. You can try to do it manually if there is a Menu function on your TV.

Try a number of repair shops. Try to find out about their reputation. Out of warranty?

LCD Display Panel/screen is damaged. Replacement of the LCD Panel is only solution of the problem. By the way, cost of LCD display may be higher than the cost of new TV. Check you local market for the price.

You are doing a process of elimination without knowing the source of the problem. There are two problems here, one is the Audio and second the Video controller. All devices rely on the Power source and Control Center. By the time you keep doing a replacement, you could have had a new TV. Unless you are a technician, Don't waste you time and money.

Check and replace the main board. Check back-light inverter boards. If you wish to get some details, check the site linked here. Pull up older posts. Check the site in 'Mosaic' view. It will make search easy.

The main power regulator board should be checked. In most cases, this board might need replacement as card basis. Contact any service technician. If you wish to get more details, check this link. Selecting the view option, either to Mosaic /Timeslide, can be selected by the drop-down list, by the top left of the display window, will make surf easy. You can also do a search, by type in the brand name / model number / IC used, in the search box at the top right of the display window.

This is a common problem with Polaroid sets. I would check the power supply/inverter board for any capacitors with bulging tops. The typical ones that cause this problem are 10uf 450V caps.

You need to download the appropriate HDMI drivers for your VGA to get it to output to the TV HDMI input.

See if you have sound with just a DVD connected to a rear audio/video input on the set, this will rule some things in or out

There are two ways.
Some models allow you to change the picture "format" through the main menu. You'll go to the menu, find the picture settings and one of them will be "mode" or "typo" or something like that which will have options like "Normal", "Full", "Cinema", "Auto" etc; some call it "zoom" since the picture is always made to fit into certain ratio, which is done by zooming it.

Some models, however, do not have that ability in the main menu. I guess poor chinese manufacturers were so poor they could never afford to add the few extra bytes of code it takes to make it possible.
Either that or the greedy capitalists (including the poor chinese manufacturers, which are a whole lot more capitalists than their western clients) did it on purpose so that one needs to buy original remote for something as simple.
Anyway, if it's not accessible through the main menu then there is a special button on the remote - again called "zoom" or "pic mode" - which does just what you need.

Finally, if you wantch HD channels that problem should not be present.

Hope this helps...if it does, please leave a review for us on Google!
