Have TV Questions? Ask a TV Technician
Our Polaroid Tv is not working... how does this site work?
It is a 42 inch Polaroid TLX-04244B. When you turn it on part of the Polaroid logo (the left and right edges) shows briefly and then the screen goes black.
No, we don't have sound.
The TV was manufactured in October 2008 -- I don't know when we bought it.
It stays slightly backlit. Yes we have unplugged and plugged back in.
How do I access the power supply board?
Before we go to the trouble of that give me an idea of the pricing of the parts please, and where do I get them?
I don't know how to rate you until I open up the TV and unfortunately I have an appointment I need to leave for... will the rating hold until later?
I finally have a chance to look at the TV. I took the back off but cannot find the marked Voltage outputs you mentioned. Can you give me more specifics?
Ok, I found the connector. It has 8 colors of wire coming out. Will they all have the same voltage or which one should I check? Do I check with the power on or just plugged in?
They are not labeled and you are only answering part of the question --I understand it is hard to do from a distance but I am getting frustrated
The labeled connector is Con 3 not Con 2 and the 5 V pin produces just under 5 volts
If Aric is still available I would like to continue diagnosing the problem with him. If he is not available, then someone else please tell me what is next? The last thing I did was confirm that the 5 volt pin has just under 5 volts.
Is anybody there that can help me?
Do I need to replace my main board or my power board?
