    I am having the same problem. My tv is the FLM-373b and wouldn't turn on anymore. I replaced the caps in order to get my power to turn back on since they were blown, but now its flourescent, blurry, and no audio.

Okay I just got mine to work. All I did was: click menu on my remote control, go to setup, go to the very bottom where it says "Default" and press ok on the remote. Everything went back to the default settings and worked.

If the audio still doesnt work, go to menu, audio tab, down to MTS system and hit right or left on the remote to change the audio setup.

Whats the purpose for an inverter board on tv panel


the inverter is what powers the flourescent tube lights (Back Lights) so you can see the screen image. As a LCD panels picture is very very dark it needs the lights behind it for the image to be able to be seen. The inverter is the "power supply" for those backlights.

Where is lamp location in polaroid 32in hd tv


Your model is a LCD flat panel which doesnt have a lamp. Instead they have a series of flourescent tubes behind the Screen which light the screen. The backlights hardly ever fail its usually the Inverters which fail when you dont have any picture with that model. You can get the inverter board and free technical assistance from www.tvrepairworld.com

I have a 37 inches polaroid tv and, it was working fine at night, in the morning when I turn it on, a a black spot show on the right side of the screen


Depending which model, this tv may have an inverter master and slave module set. I find best to replace as a pair. These modules feed the flourescent lamps that backlight you lcd screen. more than likely the one failing is on the same side as the spot you are seeing. I always first look at the power supply panel, to be certain that capacitors on this board have not failed or leaked out.

I have a Polaroid tv 32" flat screen tv and I heard a noise like hissing! It got louder and then my tv went out and smoke came from the top of it! So, can it be fixed and how much would it cost to...


99% chance the problem is in the inverter board that provides the AC needed for the flourescent lamps behind the LCD monitor.

There's a small chance it is the power board.

We have sound and you can see the sound bar on screen but no picture


Open the back of the TV. Then turn it on. You should be able to see white light indicating the flourescent lamps are on. Don't touch anything tho because there are high voltages there. If the flourescent light dont come on then it is the board that powers it. If the white lights are on at the back then it is the main picture board. I may add though that the power supply that powers the flourescent lamp has higher failure rate.

Grey cloud


This sounds like a diffuser problem. Basically the LCD Panel is defective.

32" LCD TV use about 8 horizontally mounted flourescent bulbs. They use a plastic material that diffuses (spreads) the light from each bulb evenly on the screen. If this Diffusion Material becomes wrinkled it will leave a grey cloudy look on the screen.

It is possible that the LCD Panel Glass is defective buy honestly I would guess the diffuser.

This isn't cheaply repairable and it is better to replace the TV unless you are experinced with Electronics repair. There may be a possibility to pull this material out and replace it with something readily available from Home Depot but I have not tried this before. It is possible to pull this from another LCD TV.
