Question about Polaroid TDA-03211C 32 in. LCD HDTV

1 Answer

Black screen I have a 32" HD Widescreen LCD TV/DVD Combo TDA-03211C. Two evenings ago, there was an odd sound that I can best describe as a landslide of sparkle-sounding particles falling. Then the TV screen went completely black. Using the remote provided by my digital cable provider, I turned the TV off and then immediately back on. The white POLAROID word appeared, but was very faint and barely visible. The POLAROID word disappeared as it's usual process, the TV program picture appeared, but was also faint, and after 1-2 seconds the screen went completely to black. I turned the TV off and then back on four additional times and it did the same thing each time. The TV is two years old. I am the sole support of three kids (not trying to gain sympathy), but my former employers purchased the TV for myself and my kids out of generosity so we would have a "family-room" TV. I am now unemployed. I am using a 12-inch portable color tv which is sitting in front of my 32" Polaroid. Help? Please??

You may have blown power supply for the backlight inverter or blown backlight inverter board, either one are cheap!,
This is cheaply made TV to begin with. Repiar shop will charge you $200 and up plus parts.

I have a Polaroid TDA 03211C 32inch LCD TV /DVD COMBO screen went black cant get screen to work,sound works


It has 2 blown capacitors in it. Mine had the same problem. The capacitors are located at EC17 & EC18 on the top circuit board inside the tv. They cost about 1.00 a piece. You can get them at DigiKey.com. It is very easy to take the board out and have someone soldier the new ones in and then put it back together. You can fix it for about 40.00. Hope this helps. Do a search on line of what the capacitors look like........

When I put a DVD in, it stays on loading for a few minutes and then it says -no disc. I can not use the DVD player. It is a 32" HD Widescreen LCD TV/DVD Combo...TDA-03211C. Thanks.


With the dvd loaders in these particular units the laser tends to fault in them relatively fast. Replace the laser loader assembly, which is the entire assembly containing the laser, the mechanism where the disc slides in and out as well as the small motor that spins the disc. Good Luck.

I have a 32" HD widescreen LCD TV/DVD combo. TDA03211c. When I put a dvd in to play it makes a noise and puts some digital garbage on the screen. Will not play dvds.


Sounds like the DVD player is defective. Just food for thought.. Try not invest in any make with a built in DVD player, they just don't last.

Screen black. polaroid tv 32". have sound TV/DVD Combo TDA-03211C


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
