LCD sets are backlit by a special color temperature fluorescent lamp assembly, usually built into the display itself and not replacable for most brands. There are no "light bulbs" to replace in flat panel units.

The failure you described is a serious one. A burning smell often means the main power supply or display buffer drives shorted somewhere. The display or lamp could also be shorted out (rare) , but you might find a damaged backlight power supply (not rare).

Just changing the affected board (s) may not be your only problem, as there could be shorts elsewhere that caused the failure to begin with. Proper power precautions are needed from blowing the new board the second you fire the set up.

Only thing I could recommend is find a FACTORY AUTHORIZED repair center and find out what's wrong. They would have quick access to parts and resources for engineering support directly from the manufacturer. It's best to find one with a reasonable estimate charge and make sure that charge is credited to your final bill should you decide to have it repaired.

The problem is with your "control box". I just went through this also. You didn't say how old your TV was. My TV was 1 year, 3 months, 26 days old when my control box went out. I finally got the number to Polaroid and called until I got help. (don't expect any help with their call center) They sent me a new control box and the TV works fine now and the box has a 90 day warranty. Unfortunately, if your TV is older than mine was, its unlikely they will help you. You can watch ebay for a unit, they come up regularly. You will need to know which one is the model version for your TV. Look at your serial number, the 4th and 5th characters tell you which version. If your model version is 00, 01, 02, 03, A1, 23 then the unit is: *909-KS0-GF371XAH. If it is 12, 13, A2 then the unit is: *909-TE1-GF378XCH. This info on the serial #/model version was given to me be a repair tech that had a control box for sale on ebay. I have not verified the information, nor did I have to use it, but it sounds accurate and he seemed knowledgeable. I hope this helps, good luck.
