    Tried to follow advice by unpluging and holding power button. No luck. Any other suggestions other than service man? Have been told that the repair will be more than the initial cost. Polaroid wants to charge me shipping to return tv and then also $175.00 for a used replacement.

Hi there,

1. There'll be a fuse in the plug, so check that's not blown by replacing it with one of the SAME type
2. Don't assume your mains socket is working. Test it with another appliance, and plug your TV into another socket that you know is working.

Sometimes a power surge or fluctuation will cause a digital TV to lose its programming (memory). Try these steps to see if will will help (works sometimes on some brands of TVs).

1. Unplug the TV and leave it unplugged for about 10 minutes.
2. After that time, and while the TV is still unplugged, press and hold the main Power On/Off button for about 10 seconds. Release the button.
3. Plug the TV back in and attempt to turn it on normally.

If it powers up normally, the problem is fixed. The TV should then start automatically seeking active signals (channels) from your connected input signal source. If it doesn't, go to the Setup (or Settings) menu and select the Channel Search (or auto program) mode.

If it doesn't power up, press and hold the main Power On/Off switch for up to about 10 seconds (or until it turns on, whichever comes first).

If it still fails to power up, then your TV most likely has an internal fault (such as a blown fuse or power protection circuit, or a blown power supply capacitor) that is preventing it from powering up. This would have to be diagnosed and repaired by a reputable service technician.

Good Luck!!

The white screen and nothing else usually indicates a failure of the filter capacitors in the power supply board. When these capacitors go out the voltages are not correct so the TV can not power up right. You can rebuild the power board by replacing the bad capacitors and this should bring the TV back to life. Here is a link to a repair guide for this power supply board.

I hope this helps,

You probably have a bad inverter PCB. It is a skinny board by itself over on the left side of the back of the panel.

Ether the antenna is not good enough for the digital signals that are now brodacasted or you got a bad digtal tuner in this unit. i would buy a antenna from radioshack special for this TV.
