Any chance I could get the schematics from you? I have the exact same issue. Turn it on...no picture...clicking sound and the smell of something burnt. The clicking will not stop until the power cord is unplugged (power button does not stop the clicking sound). email@example.com

Schematics are never available for free.
In printed form, they are sold in bundles with those from several sets packaged together. This is why service technicians are the only ones who usually buy them. In machine readable form, they are available as part of a subscription database service; again, too costly for an individual.
Even with schematics, it is DANGEROUS to work on the inside of a projection TV. There are High Voltages which can persist for WEEKS after the set is turned off.
Even if you could find and replace the bad part, readjusting the pincushion settings usually takes special instruments. Unless you are planning this as the start of a new career, you had better call a service technician.
Polaroid will not release component schematics not even to service centers as they are designed to replace the entire modules while under warranty out of warranty there is very little Chance of obtaining new replacement parts. As i have a 2006 LCD and a 2007 Plasma Polaroids and polaroid told me they are considered a disposable TV replacement parts are not available and suggested that I try ebay
I think the problem is either the power supply/High Voltage board or the IHVT (Integrated High Voltage Transformer). I don't have schematics for this model, in addition you will need to take the IHVT out and perform a ring test on it, also I would advise you to check and see if the Horizontal Output transistor is shorted also, you can do this with an ohmmeter (measure between the collector and ground it should have a high reading if the reading is low the transistor is bad). The ring test can be performed with the use of a Universal Video Analyzer, or a LCR analyzer.
