It can be repaired, however, the cost is probably going to be in the area of $200.00 or so. Unfortunately these were not reliable sets. I have repaired way to many of them to recommend repairing it.

I have a Polaroid tv 32" flat screen tv and I heard a noise like hissing! It got louder and then my tv went out and smoke came from the top of it! So, can it be fixed and how much would it cost to...


99% chance the problem is in the inverter board that provides the AC needed for the flourescent lamps behind the LCD monitor.

There's a small chance it is the power board.

Sound but no picture.


It sounds like it is the picture tube. The same thing just happened to me. The back of my television started smoking and then there was no picture.

Pink screen


When the "pink screen" happens on my Polaroid FLM-1911 TV, I unplug the power cord from the back of the unit, wait 30 seconds, and replug it. This fixes the problem.
