Question about Polaroid 1720-7 Remote Control

1 Answer

Large Black Bar across one channel only Polaroid T.V.

A black bar covering 1/2 the screen comes on about 3 seconds after I go to the channel. It has numbers and letters that flash on it. I called cable and they said it is the T.V. I am an old lady, and can't afford to go to a repairman. I purchased this at Circuit City less than a year ago. Help me please

    WE have the same problem with our Polaroid TTM 2004R model CRT TV. It appears on several channels & in our case does not have any letters or numbers on it. If you hit the display button on the remote the picture returns, but only as long as you hold the display button.

Turn off CC1,2,3 or 4. You are seeing a Closed caption screen with either no data or encoded data. Usually the blank CC's are 2,3, or 4.

If it is a large black rectangle that blots out the middle of the screen then you need to check your CC (closed caption) setting. Make sure the closed caption is turned off. I'm not up to date on the newer sets, but a lot of the older ones had more than one CC setting. One setting ran the captioning across the bottom, another put it in a big black box in the center of the screen. Most places didn't support the full text so all that showed was a big black rectangle on the screen. Since I'm not sure exactly what your rectangle looks like, this is my best estimate of your problem. Hope this helps.

I Think NO expert can help this problem because it free answer


I think I may finally have the answer for the "black screen of death" for the 42" Polaroid LCD televisions. I was having the same issue with the screen going black after a couple minutes of being on. I would shut it down then turn it back on and it would work again for 5-10 minutes. On the "power board" which is the board on top, there is a little red light that turns on when the screen would go black. above that there are 4 little switches, the lower on says BURN. I simply switched that over and the television has been working for 2 days for 8 hours + each day. Hope this help. Let me know
