Question about Polaroid FLM-2632 Television
All of a sudden, my picture what to black in a one year (and 3 weeks) old TV. The sound works well and I can change stations, but no picture. No lines, no fuzz, just black.
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

Nice Try everyone, We are an Authorized Service Center For Polaroid, and where the problem is in the Power Supply! This supply generates standby 5VDC when the PW_on Pin goes High, It will produce the 12VDC and the 24VDC for the Backlight (inverter) , But the Problem is in the Electrolytic Capacitors in the Power Supply!

The back light is gone you might need to replace it. Open it and check the back light is easy to access.

I have the same issue and checking power supply have solid 5VDC and 24 VDC. Backlight works since the Polaroid logo displays then goes black

After noting all the possible issues, I suggest anyone with a SMALL investment like I have, chuck the TV and post the experience under lessons learned (listening Polaroid CO.) People with larger investments, I feel for. Hope you can work it out. EVERYONE ELSE, STAY AWAY FROM POLAROID.
