Seized up with smoke coming from the back of the TV


Check and replace the main power regulator board. Components on it have been burned due to voltage fluctuation. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Viewing it in "Mosaic" will make surf easy.

My 32 inch polaroid tlx-03210b red light stays on when plugged in then when i turn it on the blue appears and the audio from the tv i can hear but no visual


Hi breezeloe,
Power on the unit in the dark room then shine with the flashlight directly in the screen, you will barely see the images. This is because your backlight is not functioning. The following reason is the caused.
1. Power supply - missing B+(supply voltage) coming from this board feeding the inverter board. This is caused by faulty transistor, dried/leaky electrolytic capacitor, open fusible resistor.
2. Inverter board - even the B+ is good from the power supply, if the fuse, driver transistor, driver transformer is faulty no output to the backlight resulting to black picture.
3. Busted backlight - even inverter board is good but if this is busted resulting to black picture also.
Diagnosing the fault is technical and if you don't have necessary tools and test instrument and can't fix it yourself, I would advice you to look for an experienced technician to isolate the problem.
Hope I helped you.
Have a nice day!
Thanks for using Fixya.

You need to look inside to see which board has smoked, I will suspect the power supply module. This is poorly designed TV!

I saw a cloud of smoke come out of the back an now no picture but I do have sound.Its model TDA03211C 32 " dvd combo.


The smoke may have come from the main power supply. You can buy the whole module from Polaroid which includes, the power supply and the signal board all in one piece. I am not sure if this model has the inverters on the side or embedded with the panel. It may also be the inverter.
Best of luck.

Smoke from rear of tv


I wouldn't turn it on either. Not needed, it won't work anyways, just cause more problems. You will need to have the rear panel removed and observe for shorted wires, burnt or swelled capacitors and likely a faulty power supply aka high voltage transformer

Hi,
Most probably, Electrolytic condenser in the Power supply to display circuit may have punctured resulting in smoke coming out. Take tv to service centre. There is no other option.
Good luck.
Rating the solution is highly appreciated.
