Are you able to with the back off check on all of the PC board 'Especially the power supply board' if any of the fuses are open. If you have a multi-meter to test would be the best. Sometimes you are unable to see the open in a fuse with your naked eye.
This still may be a main power supply issue but more than likely just an open fuse.

Well a couple of questions if I may.
1) How do you have the TV connected to the Cable box?
A) Composite cable 'usually a yellow colored RCA to another Yellow RCA connector' and then plugged into your TV's Video input. This will only give you 3x4 video aspect as its only limited to 480 lines of resolution. This would explain why you only get a 3x4 aspect.
B) Component cables, Usually three cables 'RCA connector's 'Red, Green and Blue' colored ends.
This will give you output resolutions of 720i up to 1080P which is your High Definition outputs and will fill your screen from top to bottom and side to side if your cable box can actually receive High Def. It should since all local Television stations had to go to Digital HD last June 09.

Blossom, I would take it in immediatly to a qualified TV Service Shop or where you bought it from to see if you can either return it or actually get it in for repair. With the size of the three dark spots it's more than a dead pixel issue. Could be a matrix processing issue but one Polaroid should repair/fix under warranty.

powersupply capacitor problem......

Polaroid... | Answered on Nov 23, 2009

If you get steady 24vdc from the power supply which is used for the inverter board afterb the bad capacitors are replaced, then you may problem with the inverter board that is damaged by AC from the power supply when the capacitors went bad, capacitors were filtering out the AC. There are surface mounted fuses on the inveter board also. Please post back what you find.

My LCD TV has sound but no picture.

If an LCD TV has sound but no picture do the following:

Use the source button to ensure that source is not set to the wrong input.

Try unplugging power cord for ten minutes, to ensure it is not a setting problem.

Check all the video cables at the back of TV.

Check Light /Color settings.

If problem persist and does not depend on external receiver or settings, then it is likely an internal fault.

If it has sound but no picture then one of the following parts is faulty, and must be tested and replaced:

The inverter is the high voltage board that provides variable power to the backlight lamp. This is the most common. When inverter is faulty you can get no picture, or a very dim picture that can only be seen by pointing a torch light with a 45 degree angle on the LCD surface from very near distance.
The inverter must be tested by reading voltages with a multimeter.

The LCD ribbon cable/LCD display and connectors.
This is quite uncommon, but happens. If the TV had been hit or moved the LCD cable may have slipped out, or the LCD connector may be damaged.

The LCD controller board.
This is the board that controls the video signal, it is difficult to test, as there is need to read determined values on IC pins. To test this board you need to purchase a service manual and follow the troubleshooting diagrams on service manual.

Input/Output Signal boards.
This are the boards where you connect the video and audio cables, if a signal board is defective, then you may get no picture on particular inputs located on faulty board.

If under warranty contact the manufacturer ringing the number on the user manual.

If you want to repair at your own expenses, just locate any good qualified repairer.

Try to see if you get the sound from audio out RCA jacks, if you do, then the problem is in the power amp section that drive the speakers.

Polaroid... | Answered on Oct 30, 2009

i would doubt them fully look into this but also look on ebay for parts

Polaroid... | Answered on Oct 24, 2009

You need to go through your tv's menu and enable the audio out jack.

Ur back light ic inverter board is dead.
U need a new one.

Polaroid... | Answered on Aug 29, 2009

Try replacing your lcd controller. It's the board that actually makes the screen display the picture. Usually you will see the colors getting a little screwy and then the longer you have the tv on the hotter it gets and the worse it gets. I had one that started to look silvery then got worse as it got warmer. For lack of better ways to describe it, it was like you were watching tv on a crazy acid trip. Once you change the controller it should be ok. If that doesn't work 99% chance it's a bad lcd panel. I've seen about 6 of those all with similar issues as you have, they were all brand new tv's and all Sharp Aquos.

Although visual inspection shows no bad caps, this doesn't mean they're not bad. Some caps dry up inside. The Electrolytic paste is dried up. They didn't form the usual Hydrogen gas, and expand the cap, or break the seal, and push paste out.
Also, granted you are getting the proper voltages, but what are the voltages like under a load? There's no way to test this without the proper equipment.

I suggest also that it is the power board. The power supply for the monitor. If you do suspect the backlight to be out, take a flashlight, shine it at the screen, and see if you can make out any images.
I agree though that the backlight is not out, because you also have no sound.
This further convinces me that it's a power board issue.

Check for bulged caps on the Power supply board. Replace as needed.

I think you will find that the image has burnt into your screen, which means its time for a new one, and next time check in the tv menu settings there is 99% of the time a sleep timer.

This happened to me when the computer signal did not match the TV. Turn the TV off and disconnect the power for 10 seconds. Worked for me.

had the same problem. if you take out the power supply in the back of your tv ( easy to get to just a few screws in back to get to the box then a few more to get into it and some quick disconnects) you can take it to a local tv repair shop and they can remove the two green capacitors in the upper left of the circuite panel and place in 16v ones that can actually handle the power needed. do not try to do it yourself although the new capacitors only cost 2 dollars one wrong move and you burn the wires on the board. the repair man only charged me 54 dollars well worth it considering polaroid wanted to charge me 500 to fix a 2 dollar part that should have been recalled. they are in the busines to make money but if any of us did what they did wede be considerd con artist. final note since ive replaced the capacitors my tvs worked better than when i bought it
