Customer Question
The TV won't turn...

The TV won't turn on. Changed batteries, used controls on back of TV, plugged and unplugged and same results. Blue light comes on for a second, flash like picture is coming on and turns off.

Technician's Assistant: Is your TV connected to a surge protector or power strip?

No.

Technician's Assistant: Have you tried to power reset your TV (unplugging the power for 1-2 minutes, then plugging it back in)?

Yes I did say that.

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the TV expert to know before I connect you?

No. Never had a problem before.

Maybe 3 yrs. I am not near the TV as I couldn't get an answer from the phone numbers listed. Just busy signal. Came to the web address and got you which isn't Polaroid and never had to pay.
TV Technician: Mike G., Technician replied 1 year ago

This is a pay for help service. To continue tell me the SIZE of the tv screen- 40" 50" 60"

I love this site! $9 instead of a repairman or new/used frig can't be beaten. This older woman will worry less now that she knows about this site. Bless you all.
