Question about Polaroid 4241-TLXB 42 in. LCD Television

Open Question

The tv screen is dark on the left side, the right side is fine. The images are still visable, but it's a dark orange, lingering image. The whole half of the screen is dark, but one part towards the far left is lighter and one part towards the mid-left is darker. The tv will flicker from regular to dark just on the left side before it goes dark. Sometimes the entire screen will flicker from this dark orange and then will go dark orange, but with streaks of white vertical lines when any images with high contrast show up. When the whole screen is dark, it is much more difficult to see any images and the images are much more lingering, like a tracer effect, but then the entire screen will flicker from the extremely diffecult to see lingering images and white streaks to a more nutral state of darkness, which is the same state when just the left side is dark. I used to be able to turn off the tv then back on again,when it was in this full screen more nutral state, and it would be fine but not any more. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you.

SOURCE: I have a Polaroid 40"

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!

WS-55807: Images are dark on right side of display, but will go away after 3-4 hours.

you could be on the right track get some freeze spray and go around all the parts to see if you can make it act up, same with heatgun or hair dryer when first turned on heat one area at a time to narrow your problem down
