i had the same problem. i opened the panel in the back of the tv (3 screws) and opened the aluminum panel (3 screws). there's a red led light located at the bottom left corner of the top board. to the right of the led light, you will find this thing with 4 switches. i turned the two bottom switches "burn" and "epmw" to on. so far tv have been working.

sounds like inverter board. What it sounds like is happing is your LCD is working ut the backligkt board that allows you to see is kicking off. (as you still have sound) Which could be the (most likely) inverter board, or the power supply board. You can take apart and check for voltage at your power supply. The power supply has a pigtail with large white wires and a connector. Power up with the center back cover off and check your voltage at the white connector on the power supply before and after the screen gos out. If there is no large voltage loss it is your inverter board.
You can used boards on e-bay or

I suspect you may have 2 capacitors in your control module that need to be replaced. When these caps start to go bad it will often show up as a problem with the sound. However, when they get really bad they can prevent the TV from turning on. Please see the link below, posted by stiv0. It gives detailed instructions on how to replace these caps and to tell if they're getting bad. If you follow these instructions you can take the back off the TV and check out the caps. If the tops of the caps are bulging they need to be replaced. Just be sure to replace them with the correct value (1000uf) and use caps that are rated at a higher voltage than the originals. I replace the 10v caps in my FLM 373B with 30V caps just to be on the safe side. If you know how to solder this is an easy and inexpensive fix. If you don't know how to solder find a friend who does. These caps have positive and negative terminals. It's important you solder the new caps in with the correct polarity. Stiv0 gives instructions on this. Even if the caps aren't bulging this fix is so inexpensive, less than 10$, that you may want to try it anyway. I hope this helps you out.

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...........
