Question about Polaroid 1720-7 Remote Control

Open Question

My Polaroid TLX-04243B TV which I purchased from Wal-Mart in November 2008 (Black Friday) had a Wii remote hit the screen. There is no picture (only what looks like a spider web in the center of the screen), however it does still play sound. My question is -- Is it cheaper to replace this tv or to repair it?

SOURCE: My Polaroid TV model not listed, it's TLX-04240B

I got the 42" Polaroid HDTV from Walmart (on Black Friday) and was able to link it to my Tivo remote using the Mitsubishi setting and code 0001.
1. Tivo Central 2. Settings
3. Remote Control 4. Part 1 and then Part 3
I use it to Power On/Off and Volume control.

Turn off CC1,2,3 or 4. You are seeing a Closed caption screen with either no data or encoded data. Usually the blank CC's are 2,3, or 4.

SOURCE: i have a polaroid tv tlx-04240b

I have the same model, same problem. It doesn't need an inverter board. If its the same problem as mine was, it is a capacitor. I replaced the capacitor and it has worked fine since. It is a 220uf 450v capacitor on the right side of the top board. Its black and about 1.25" in diameter. It cost me $26.00, much better than the $250-$400 for someone to replace the whole board. Just check capacitor, if its domed or bubbled on top, it is bad. I have pics if you need Or more questions.

This TV had just suddenly turned off one day not even a year and a half after I purchased it and it flickers and stays black screen withg only the RED LED light on. PLEASE ANY HELP ON HOW TO GET THIS FIXXED WOULD BE GREATLY APPRETIATED!!!

I RESIDE IN THE PHOENIX AREA IF YOU KNOW RESONABLLY PRICED TV REPAIR MEN. THANKS A LOT!!!

Can the remote do a code search? I had to do that with my Tivo remote to control my new Polaroid.
