Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. To check what has gone bad you’ll have to open the back of the unit and check the backlight inverter board. The inverter is the power supply source for the backlights. If that’s the issue then it’s always better to replace the inverter board completely just to avoid any future issues. If not then check the power supply board however, it seems to be the inverter board as the sound is still working fine.Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.


Thanks

    Which one is the backlight inverter board and how much will a new one cost?

    Please check the below picture as inverter board looks like this, and is normally supplied by a dedicated voltage from the power supply (24vdc):






    Replacing the inverter board will cost you around $250 including labor and you can buy the parts from this link. Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.

    is this something I can do myself or do I need to take it to a repair person?

    All
    this is only recommended if you have electrical expertise and know how to
    solder/re-solder components. Please note that the TV components consists high
    voltages even when in off position.
    Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or post
    a comment for further assistance.









    Thanks

Double vision screen


This is most certainly a display problem, as in, a problem with the LCD panel. I used to fix 4 or 5 LCD's a day and had a few with the same problem. It can be fixed by being replaced.

Have a 42in polaroid hdtv... half the screen is colored lines butb the other hjalf is fine with good sound & pic


Usually a board---different names for each brand: Sustain, Y, Z etc.

Some sets (sound like yours) use one to drive right side of picture and another for left side.

The only bad news is Polaroid parts may be difficult if not impossible to find.

I have a Polaroid 40" TLX-04011C. The screen resolution is fine except for about a 4" area along the right side from top to bottom. This area is lighter than the rest of the screen. The picture is still...


I have not repaired this particular model. But I have repaired another polaroid flat screen TV. I can tell you for sure, the biggest problem here are bad capacitors in the signal board. You may find 15 or 20 bad caps. On the power supply there may be a two or three caps that need replaced as they will be weak but not real bad. Yes,the majority of the caps will be found in the signal board. You will need a good capacitor checker to locate these. It will require patience and skill to remove and replace these caps. I cannot say enough of bad capacitors in this TV. Find a TV tech to help you! Thanks for asking, show me a few hands of appreciation. This answer is your best effort for repair!

I Think NO expert can help this problem because it free answer


I think I may finally have the answer for the "black screen of death" for the 42" Polaroid LCD televisions. I was having the same issue with the screen going black after a couple minutes of being on. I would shut it down then turn it back on and it would work again for 5-10 minutes. On the "power board" which is the board on top, there is a little red light that turns on when the screen would go black. above that there are 4 little switches, the lower on says BURN. I simply switched that over and the television has been working for 2 days for 8 hours + each day. Hope this help. Let me know

42" LCD tv shows picture on only half of the screen,other half dark!


The T-Con board (otherwise known as LVDS) connects to two seperste parts of the LCD panel. If you do have half a picture (left or right) replacing the T-Con board should resolve this issue. Open your TV, find the part number and search on eBay or at sites like www.flattvparts.co.uk where you can search by TV model number.
