I have a Polaroid 32 "FLM323B TV I purchased 13 months ago. The video went out while the TV was on. The warranty is off and the technicians in my community will not work on it - they say the parts are too hard to find.
Can you give me a place that I can ship it for repairs? Also, I need some assurance before shipping that it can be repaired at a reasonable price. I am already $800 into this thing. Sorry that I bought it, but it did have a very good picture quality.
Thanks for any assistance you can provide.

This can be a failure in the display driver circuits, or in the display panel itself. This should be verified by the factory service rep. He will try the necessary modules to determine where the failure has occured.
If the set is out of warranty, this can be a very expensive repair.
If your TV is not turning ON, the power supply is defective. It's a bit hard to find service parts for these TVs, the only way to fix the power supply is to replace the defective parts.

If you purchased the TV 6 months ago, still under manufacturers warranty. They normally give customers 1 year warranty coverage.
It looks like the main board will have to be replace on this TV or fix to the component level.
I googled this a bit and found the sound going out is a normal problem , if under warranty still call polaroid here is the service manual http://pettersservice.com/polaroid/docs/FLM-Series-26-32-37-ServiceManualFinalNA_20070418.pdf
looks like its a chip on the output of the video ad board. or since the sound was terrible anyway get a surround sound speakers and connect them to your cable box, no cable box then you will have to have it fixed.
