Question about Televison & Video
Model is 42PFP5532D. i plug the power in i get red light, press the standby button turns blue as if its on but still blank screen. how much would it cost to get fixed?
Just let me know if their is a sound when you turn on the tv then the only problem is black screen. if you can get sound tried to press the channel up/down button let see if you can get a channel. if you hear that receive channel that was mean the problem is either the screen back light get busted or the power inverter is defective. hope this can help good luck.

The power supply is in the protect mode. There are many things in the set that can cuase this. Most likely there is a short on one of the circuit boards, or the power supply itself has failed.
You will have to have the set serviced in order to get it going again.

SOURCE: INSIGNIA LCD won't turn on
replace 2 condensers in the power supply with greater voltage ones.original are 1000uf 35volt...use 1000uf 65volt...99cents each
power circuit is made to fail with typical tv industry tactics...the warranty is reflected by the life of their condensors (capacitors) average life is 2000 hours..
if your a smoker...you must clean the button cover as they get stuck on with your stupid tobacco residue. 75% of all LCD tv's that smokers own fail this way...
TRY TO STOP SMOKING...

Plasma tvs do not have "back lights" LCDs do. you probably have a bad driver board along with the upper or lower buffer board or maybe both, best to have a tv shop look at it.

Polaroid's power supplies have been notorious in early models...suspect this is where your problem is. If you are out of warranty, the supply is usually located dead center in the back of the TV. Easy to get out, easy to put in...not sure of the money. Mine was a hundred bucks, but I bought it from a third party. Good luck.
