For those who bought a Polaroid LCD HDTV some two or so years ago, chances are you’re already having some issues right now with your unit. These televisions, particularly this model (FLM-3732), are notorious for blinking out on you because of some bad capacitors. Basically the symptoms would be such that when you turn it on, the blue indicator light lights up but the screen pictures do not. It’s just blank like it’s turned off. Although I’ve told people that this year might be the best time to buy a new TV, I remain practical in the sense that if you can repair your malfunctioning TV and it won’t cost you more than $4.00, then definitely, repairing should be an option worth trying. The alternative, which is to go out and spend around $600.00 for a new LCD TV should remain a course of action in the event that your $4.00 repair attempt fails.

    Our red power light will not even light up when plugged in. And yes, we checked and it is not the outlet. We are thinking it might have been a power surge but aren’t sure. Any suggestions? TIA

    if the red light is on and it wont turn blue, is this still likely the correct fix?

    Hi would it be possible to repair my plazma TV screen cracked

    • Jon FS says:

      Hi, Lauren. Cracked screens are usually turned down by many repairers because the cost is prohibitive. You might as well buy a new flat screen. You could try calling up a few repair shops (including the manufacturer) to learn more about your options and the potential costs.
