This is a well-known problem with many Polaroid FP displays. Eventually, the picture will simply go black, rendering the TV useless. The solution is a new control board, ~$400.

3232 polaroid tv,makes popping noise when i turn it on.


this sounds like the problem most LCD tv's get with swelled up capacitors in the power supply board. look for circular cylinder shaped parts rapped in plastic with writting on the sides, and metal tops, if the top is rounded over, not flat, it is bad. replace them.

Buzzing sound


Hello, This is a problem with the switching transformer or the ballast used to fire the backlight. You will have to replace the ballast and or the switching transformer soon. In order to replace these items, I would suggest taking it to a qualified TV technician for servicing. I hope this helps, Thank you, Shuttle83 http://www.electron-age-technologies-llc.com
