Buzzing sound after only 2-1/2 years of service

My Polaroid 37 inch flat screen HDTV has developed a buzzing high pitched sound that goes away after about 3 minutes after turning it on and I called the company but they said it was my problem as my warranty had ran out, I have read where other people has had this problem as well, is there a class action law suit that I could be a part of?

I suspect you have a bad set of capacitors in the control module. This problem usually starts out as a high pitched noise but can lead to the TV not turning on. Please see the link below, posted by StivO. It gives step by step instructions on how to replace the capacitors. This is a very inexpensive fix.

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

The fix to the black screen problem which is posted on Fixya has a pretty good chance to fix this too.If you have a soldering iron it costs less than $10 and will eventually have to be done anyway.The site has very good instructions,just follow them carefully.

Polaroid 37 in LCD TV


There is not a good solution. If you read about the Polaroid 37" LCD HDTV, you have a problem and it's the same one that many of us have. According to Polaroid's service center, the control box needs to be replaced. Polaroid does not stand by this product. The company gives you a lot of lip service about how many they sell and how few problems they have - they're lying. The TV's should be recalled and I'd suggest you join many of us to demand it. Write BBB, write the company where you bought the TV, write any consumer group you can think of - Polaroid TV's are junk. Sorry you've got one. Sounded like a good deal and Polaroid used to manufacture quality - no more.
