What you have wrong with your tv is in the power supply board, it is a very common problem which you can fix yourself for around $30 this is a MAJOR Samsung problem and thousands of people are having this problem. What you need to do is deenergize your tv and lay it face down on a table so you can work on it. Use a philips screwdriver to remove all the screws on the back cover of the tv make sure to remember where they go for when you put it back together. Remove the back cover and follow the two wired from where your tv power cord comes in and in the middle of your tv they will plug into a board, this is your power supply board. Look for blown capacitors, also check the fuses the tops will be bulging upward and caps have writing on them like 10v 1000uf or 2200 uf and 3300uf are the most common. What you will need to do is replace these with a 16v cap but be sure the uf number is the same, and you need 105 degree rated caps. There is also a negative side to the capacitor which is marked with a stripe and a shorter leg on the bottom, these have to go in the same way or you will blow the board, remove the board with screwdriver and disconnect all wires, now you will need your tools solder, soldering iron, and preferably a solder ****** to remove the old bad caps here is a youtube link that shows u step by step just go there and type samsung power supply repair, and whether you have a vizio, philips or another model that this is posted on they all have samsung power supplies in them so if you are having power problems this is your fix, you should be able to get all your parts at radio shack or on the web. Thank you and votes are welcome and if you cant find the parts get to me and I can help you get them

SOURCE: no picture on 32" Polaroid

Your inverter boards need to be tested and serviced, these are circuits designed to control the light behind the LCD glass panel. It could also be the power supply not feeding 24volts too the inverter circuits. In that case the power board would need servicing.

Take it back if its under warranty if not get it serviced at your local repair center..

Unplug it for about an hour first to let it reset itself and try again, if it is still not working then:
First, look at the screen in darkened room to see if you can see any slight glow from the screen, if it does, then the problem can be the T-CON (not getting the 12vdc) or the main logic board not feeding the signals to the T-CON board.
if not, next place to check will be the power supply module, make sure it has 24vdc which is required by the backlight inverter to work, the reason for not having 24vdc can be from bad DC filter caps (leaking/bulging top, high ESR) or short circuits in the inverter board which will cause the 24vdc supply to go into shutdown mode, so you may have to disconnect the power cable that feed the inverter board to see if the 24vdc will work without the inverter board hookup, you will need to apply about 3~4 amp of load to the 24vdc to make sure it can handle that. There are fuses on the backlight inverter boards also. So there are some troubleshoot you will have to do to find out the causes of the problem you are having.

If you are going to DIY and have proper tools, electronics knowledge, and know safety precaution then please read on:

The screen is blank on my Polaroid 32 inch led tv but there are sounds from it


Do more research next time (check both good and bad reviews of any product) on amazon and then buy chosen product from your place of choice. Polaroid seems not very highly rated for tvs losing picture or sound. Good luck. (: x

I have a polaroid lcd tv 32 inch. i turned it on today and there was no picture but all the sound was there even with a dvd playing there is no picture only sound i have checked all leads and everything...


Well it very well could be the three color tubes, or power board the problem. BUT before you try that check your HDMI cable. HDMI cables have to be 100% in to fully work sometimes if out just a bit they will produce this issue where you have no picture but sound.
Or try a new HDMI cable, if you don't have HDMI and it's doing it on multiple ports including RCA, RF, HD Component then it's a problem with the tv itself and you'll need to call a repairman.

could be one of two problems, either the lcd back light, which a new screen is needed, or the control box, both run about 200 dollars from polaroid, I have a 32 inch screen, I bought it cause polaroid said that was my problem only to find out that it was the control box.

Polaroid lcd tv sound only no picture


Hello dougie49

I would first check the back-light and the inverter. usually these are what causes the problems in LCD displays. If the inverter is bad most likely the back-light will have problems. If you need to replace the back-light 9 time out of 10 you will require a new display element.

I hope this helps

Thank you,
