Polaroid LCD on Digital Picture frame goes black during power-on

I have a Polariod Digital Picture frame model XSA-10169S. Starting a few days ago, the LCD screen goes dark during powerup and stays that way. The Polaroid Logo is bright as normal for a few seconds and then it goes to the darkest possible mode. I know its not dead because I can see the pictures and menu screens but it is too faint to be of any use. Unless you put your eyeball right up to the screen, it appears completely black.

Likely the old one had a bad inverter or a back light problem.

SOURCE: 37" Polaroid LCD TV No signal appears when select channel

So, I couldn't get the tuner to work (tried everything). Eventually I realised the cheapest solution would be to buy a digital set top box, and use this as the tuner instead of relying on the one built-in to the TV. Works fine.
But yes, I won't be buying another Panasonic in a hurry.

SOURCE: Screen goes black after couple seconds on my Polaroid 42" LCD

I had a TLX-4240B 42" Polaroid LCD TV and the screen would go black after about 10 minutes. There was still sound. I removed the two covers exposing the circuit boards behind the TV. I powered up the TV and waited for the screen to go black (I was going to start trying to pinpoint where the issue was with my trusting meter) then noticed a red light would come on when the screen would go black. there were 4 mini switches right above the red light. I switched the one that said burn and the TV has been working great since. good luck and let me know!

SOURCE: Polaroid 19" TV TLA-01911C has no picture. Powers up, see logo

To add to this solution above - I had the capacitor replacement and there was still an issue. Turns out the solder connection to the lamps themselves was very very poor causing an electrical arc (the scratching noises people are hearing) - then the inverter shuts the lamps down as it should. Fix lights!

SOURCE: I have a polaroid 32

There are 2 capacitors located on a circuit board that have gone bad. They are located inside the TV. It is very easy to take apart and inexpensive to fix. If you know how to soldier you can do it or sent it away like I did to fix mine. On the back of the TV there are 3 screws holding on the cover. One is big in the middle and the other 2 are small on the ends. Remove them and slide the cover off. Remove the screws holding the metal cover and take it off.
The top circuit board has the blown capacitors. Located on the left top 2 small round tubes located at E17 & E18. Unplug the 3 or 4 connections carefully on the board and remove the 6 screw holding it in place. Take out the board and replace with new capacitors. I sent mine to JD Electronics in Poland Me. and he fixed it. I put it back in and it is fine now. I ordered the capacitors from DigiKey.com Part # 493-2069-ND. They were $1.09 a piece.
Hope this helps...........

We have a works 42" Polaroid with sound but no picture


The common issue with polariod is there power supplies, Your going to have to fork out something for the repair if you not willing to buy a new TV here, A new board in this would be $175 labor another $80 or $90 tops. So you getting into $250 fast. This is why I say to all my askers NEXT TIME buy a extended warranty. This will need a new power board sorry to break it to you and its the common issue I am seeing on fixya.com from my premium chat customers. Please do be considerate as this information was free to leave postive feedback and maybe a ranting or two.. for all those expert involved in your case today.

Screen goes black, still have audio


I first changed the 220uf capacitor with no luck. I flipped the BURN switch to on and the set has been working great for a week now. Daughter left it on for about 20 hours overnight with no problem. Anybody have an idea what those 4 tiny switches are for? I have heard these type of switches called "dip switches". They are tiny white switches in a yellow block on the lower left side of the upper circuit board. The top one was labled 40", the next one down was labled 46", the 3rd one was 4 letters "EW" something I think, and then the bottom one was labled "BURN".

Polaroid Digital Frame Model XSA-01140B freezes up


I was using an 8G flash drive and had over 6G saved to it. I decided that maybe the frame could not handle that many G's so I deleted everything but 2G and it WORKS!!!!! Maybe anything over 2G is too much for it to handle. Try it and let me know. I am interested if this solves everyones problems.

No picture


if nobody will repair the tv, then your probably better off buy a new one. yours could have the bulbs blow, there could be something wrong with the board or the power supply. i don't recommend working on a tv because they are very easy to mess up and do even more damage. for your next tv, get a higher rated brand like samsung or sony. they tend to be more reliable and are easier to fix/find somebody to fix

No Picture in my 1 Year Old Polaroid FLM-2632 LCD TV


had the same problem. if you take out the power supply in the back of your tv ( easy to get to just a few screws in back to get to the box then a few more to get into it and some quick disconnects) you can take it to a local tv repair shop and they can remove the two green capacitors in the upper left of the circuite panel and place in 16v ones that can actually handle the power needed. do not try to do it yourself although the new capacitors only cost 2 dollars one wrong move and you burn the wires on the board. the repair man only charged me 54 dollars well worth it considering polaroid wanted to charge me 500 to fix a 2 dollar part that should have been recalled. they are in the busines to make money but if any of us did what they did wede be considerd con artist. final note since ive replaced the capacitors my tvs worked better than when i bought it
