I see so many here with no sound/no picture issues:

ISSUES:

1. IF sound main fuse/s are good.
2. If no power or standby check main fuse, standby power supply and any signs of damage you can see---burnt parts etc.
3. almost all these sets the troubleshooting involves checking voltages on the main power board to narrow down the problem.
4. Be safe and if you do not know what you are doing don't open the set.

Answers to issues:

1. RE:fuses---if a blown fuse is found get a good replacement(not the generic ones like Radio Shack). Many fuses are special even aside from amperage--Don't put a higher rated amperage fuse in the set for any reason.

2. RE: power supply in set: if total dead aside from main fuse the set uses a standby power supply that runs 7/24 and a main supply (some are combined and some not.

Here aside from checking fuses you want to examine all the filter caps on the power/standby to see if any are puffed up or buldged up in some fashion--I attach a photo of a good one---top should be silver metal and PERFECTLY flat and have no brown material coming out on top or bottom.

What happens in the standby area is they use caps with too low a voltage rating (saves money) which causes them to fail in a year or two---the standby runs 7/24 and the heat dries out the caps and they fail.

3. Trouble shooting consists of the above and then at some point you have to buy and try a board to see if it fixes it or not.

4. Safety first--no TV set is worth getting injured or even killed over. If set is opened at least look for puffed up and bad caps like in this photo.

there may be some bad capacitors in the primary of the power supply. do you get any led lights the front? most polaroids will have a red led on the front if the standby supply is good. there will most likely be some smaller caps 47mf@50v 10mf@50v probably that value that are bad.

The Inverter is trying to produce the high voltage to light the backlight. It looks like it cannot hold the charge to maintain the high voltage level in order for it to stay on - you get a momentary display at initial power-up thus see the logo. Replace the Inverter board.

Look on the power supply for a plug that has an id of voltages, you'll see one that says PO, that means power on, to kick the power supply up. Put you DVM on that pin and press the power button and watch the meter, you should have high activity, if it comes up to lets say 3.4 volts and falls off then the main board needs replaced. Let me know how you do!
