No, not for 4-5 hours. TV made December 2007; Serial #: PR7DA185540000045.
YES, It just does not turn.
Why should I need to unplug for 4-5 hours?
I need to know what I need to do to repair it.
Could you send me a step by step list of my Troubleshootings steps of what l must do to assist you in answering my question.
And/or a Schematics diagram of this TV perhaps to locate and replace the fuses.
The above answer does not explain the rationale. Please tell me why I am taking the steps when you reply.
I am trying to Relist this question. I lost my internet services due to Verizon transitioning my account to a new ISP or servicer. In response to your reply: My TV does not make and noise or sound, it just repond. The LED stays BLACK. Here's is some more information: My TV has a builtin DVD Player which wa clicking and played the DVD disc intermittently and it also stopped playing and Kept my last Disc. This happened just prior to MY TV stopped, but I had switched the Input to my Satelite (HDMI) line and/or signal. I think that the DVD player kept running even though It was Deselected. This could have caused the problem as reported by other users. I hope that you get this info because I still need help.
I just found out where the power supply fuse is located. I can't tell if it's blown but I am on my way to purchase and replace it now. I'll let you know what happens after this step is done.
I replaced the fuse that's near the power cord connection. The results were there was not any change.
Since then I have removed the rear cover but have not opened/exposed the main board yet. I found a service Manual for the POLAROID TLA 0411C that's very similar to my TV. Hence, I was able to open the TV up to the Main Board but I don't what to do next.
I will try to email you from my email and attach this manual in a PDF format.
HERE IS SOME ADDITIONAL INFO RELATED TO MY POLAROID LCD TV:
ON THE BACK OF THE MAIN PANAL BOARD;
MODEL NO. PV320TVM
PRODUCT NO: 7315XW02V9
PROVIEW TECHNOLOGY CO. LIMITED MADE IN CHINA
HOPE THIS HELPS
I am not familiar with "Buldging Capacitors" what would it look like, is there anything that would help me to identify one.
I am a novice in this area but I agree that the power supply is the problem because there is no power to either the TV nor the DVD player. Both are separate components which receives power from the same source. My troubleshooting flowchart end point is to replace the "Control Box".
If you would help me as referenced above and/or help me find the correct Control Box and it's source. I think that this issue can be closed.
This has been a learning experience for me and I appreciate your help. You didn't just leave me hanging and you should be paid as agreed.
This information has been beneficial to me and I'll accept your answer. I just found my Order Confirmation and Invoice. I purchased an extended Warranty and I am now in the process of returning my TV for a Replacement TV.
Hence, I don't ned to attempt to repair it. I have been Blessed.
