Polaroid TLX-04244B


Well, the worst case scenario happened... My house was hit by lightning. I have a 42" polaroid TLX-04244B that will not turn on. Red indicator will turn blue and flash until you unplug the TV. Nothing happens with the screen or sound. I initially thought it was the power board and I just replaced that today....but still the same issue.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

  1. Well, that leaves the mainboard to be replaced. You will not find one easily, but a quick check on eBay shows some people still selling them.
  2. Thanks for the reply. That's what i was thinking, I just didn't know if there was something else that needed to be done. Will try that next.
  3. I got the main board replaced now. The TV powers on now, but now it gives me this werid color static that covers the entire screen. I've gone over the connections 3 times....does this mean the new board is bad?

    Edit: There's one more board that I can get to easily that I found. Its part number is T420HW01 v2 control board. Could this board cause the issue?

  4. You most likely have the right board, but it needs to be configured. Manufacturers use a variety of panels across their product lines, and the mainboards have to be keyed to the config codes.
    I will have to do some checking to find out how to get into service mode, as I don't have the service manual in front of me.
  5. I was doing some searching myself but I can't seem to find a way to get into the service menu on this model TV. Seems easy on the other Polaroid models.
