SOURCE: Have an Element LCD model
These TVs are indeed re-branded Polaroid. You will not find the service manual under Element. You must find the equivalent Polaroid TV.
The Polaroid Flx-3202 is the same as element flx 3202 and 3212 the FLM-3237 is slightly different. Element were re-branded for Circuit City.
Polaroid service manuals won't be a great help, they are written to do board swapping. This TVs are cheap, and board swapping is all the repair that Polaroid ask the technician to do.
The service manual for 3237 is available on the Internet, but it is quite different, check if the two units have the same 37 pins sub, that is the part to be tested if PSU is OK, and there is no power to display (user upload Here Polaroid Service Manual-no t a great help). The other two are not available. Service manuals and bulletins can be ordered through Polaroid service contact.
When inverter and PSU are integrated, you check PSU voltages. There should be a control line from main board (or circuit). It may be passing through a sub board. If you have sound and LED on the AC main and DC-DC sections of the PSU should be OK, in DC-DC, check if there is power to the section going to the backlight (it is not a proper inverter). If that section has power in and no output, then the fault is likely in there.
If PSU is OK, a main failure is possible, but uncommon, the faulty part when PSU works well is the LCD panel.
Hope this will help.
