    I have a 1 year old 37" Polaroid LCD T.V. Last night we were watching it and the picture went off. We can use the remote and change channels and it gives a description with what is showing, there is sound just no picture.

Try pressing menu to see if you get on screen display,if you get display you have a input problem,check all connections to tv.if that doesn't help i need more info on you're tv setup.

    it sounds like it's a power supply board,video board or the screen itself,this is normal for a tv of that age,try to find a repair person in you're area that gives a free est.most likely it would cost more to fix than replace.
