The TV features several device-hookup ports in the back, such as HDMI, standard audio and video, coaxial, YPbPr and VGA. As you watch DVDs or cable programs, you might experience technical difficulties with the Polaroid, such as sudden power loss, a dim screen and no sound or picture.

Instructions

  1. 1

    Press the "Menu" button the remote control to access the main menu if the picture is too dark. Press the "Left" or "Right" navigation keys on the remote control to select "Video" from the main menu. Press the "Up" or "Down" navigation buttons to select "Brightness" from the "Video" options and press the "Right" navigation key to raise the brightness, until the screen is as bright as you want it to be. Press the "Menu" button to save your settings and exit the main menu.

  2. 2

    Turn the TV around and unplug the audio/video cables from the back of the TV if your DVD player displays a picture on the TV but no sound. The audio cables might be plugged into the wrong terminals. Plug the yellow video cord into the yellow "Video" terminal of the "Video2 In" section of the panel. Plug the white audio cord into the white "L" terminal of the "Video2 In" section. Make sure that the white audio cord is not plugged into the "HDMI In" section. Plug the red audio cable into the "R" terminal of the "Video2 In" section.

  3. 3

    Unscrew the 75-ohm coaxial cable from the back of the TV to reset the connection if the TV produces no picture. Screw the cable firmly into either the "TV Cable" terminal for a standard-definition picture or the "HDTV Air" terminal for a high-definition picture. Confirm that the connection is stable. Repeat this procedure with the cable connection to the cable source.

  4. 4

    Press the "Menu" button to access the main menu and push the "Right" or "Left" navigation keys to select "Setup" if the TV suddenly turns off while you're watching a program. Push the "Up" or "Down" navigation buttons to select "Timer" from the "Setup" menu and use the navigation keys to set it to "Off."

  5. 5

    Unplug the power cord from the wall or strip outlet to reset the connection if the TV doesn't power on. Plug a separate device into the outlet to test whether the outlet works. Unplug the device and inspect your TV's power cord for damage, such as frays or cuts. Replace the cord if it is damaged.
