Question about Polaroid FLM-2632 Television
Other threads have said to replace the power board. I have removed and inspected mine and there are no visually bad caps. I tested all the wires comming out of the board all red wires show 24v when the unit is powered on and the blue has 5v. Should I look into replacing the powerboard or rebuilding it. Is there some other part that I'd be better to focus my attention to? I doubt its the backlight because I have no sound, typically when the backlight is out there is at least sound or static on the speakers, there is nothing, well other than a mocking blue power light....aaarrrrggggghhh..
Post Again later and we will help you more if required.

Although visual inspection shows no bad caps, this doesn't mean they're not bad. Some caps dry up inside. The Electrolytic paste is dried up. They didn't form the usual Hydrogen gas, and expand the cap, or break the seal, and push paste out.
Also, granted you are getting the proper voltages, but what are the voltages like under a load? There's no way to test this without the proper equipment.
I suggest also that it is the power board. The power supply for the monitor. If you do suspect the backlight to be out, take a flashlight, shine it at the screen, and see if you can make out any images.
I agree though that the backlight is not out, because you also have no sound.
This further convinces me that it's a power board issue.
