My polaroid tv won't turn on. No lights blue or red come on at any time and I have left it unplugged and tried hours later and still nothing. It is a 40 in. Tv flat screen.
HiCustomer Thank you for asking your question on JustAnswer. The other Experts and I are working on your answer. By the way, it would help us to know:
-Could you explain your situation a little more?
What is the model number of the TV? The model number will be displayed on a tag on the back of the TV near where the power cord is attached.How long have you owned the TV?What have you tried to correct the problem?Thank you again for trusting us with your problem. Please reply as soon as possible so that we can finish answering your question.
TLA-04011C is the model number, we have owned the tv for 16 months. We have tried moving the tv to a new outlet, a different power cord from a computer that fit and just waiting to see if the tv would turn on and there is nothing that has worked.
You might wish to unplug the TV for an hour or more. If this power reset does not allow the TV to turn on component failure is indicated. These sets are assembled using the wave soldering process they are known for having cold solder connections. The safety circuitry shuts the TV set down or will keep it from turning on when it detects a problem. This model of TV has over 2,000 parts, which includes millions of transistors inside the integrated circuits. The capacitors will change value, leak and become defective. Resistors will change value and burn. Diodes and IC can go bad. This may have a domino effect and cause other parts to fail. Replacing one defective part may make the TV operate for a short time but the part will fail again if the parts that caused the failure to begin with are not replaced. The only way to know for sure which parts that are no longer within factory specs and for a proper repair all the electronics must be diagnosed by someone with the correct electronic test equipment specifically designed for TV service and the skills to use the test equipment. I wish I could tell you there was a quick fix or button to push that would fix the TV but that is not the case or the solution needed to get the TV operating correctly. If you wish to repair it yourself what type of electronic training do you have? What type of TV test equipment do you own? Do you own and know how to operate an oscilloscope? If you decide this is not something that you can do would you like an idea of what the cost to repair the TV will be? Should you require further clarification, never hesitate to ask.
