A common problem with this television is the power unit. Some of the
capacitors go out on them within 2 years. You can buy a replacement
power unit for about $150 or if you know how to use a soldering gun you
can purchase the capacitors for about $5 and fix the unit yourself.
I just fixed my Polaroid 3732 and it cost me $3.49. I would push the
power button and the standby light would come on but the picture would
not appear. After I changed the capacitors it starts right up.
You can buy the capacitors on Amazon.com. Search for 1000uf 25v (you need 2 of these) and 1000uf 35v (one of these).
Here is a video you can use that will give you the step by step.
This problems can not be fix.U have a problems known as screen burn in.This is a Plasma tv right?Common,Kids and people whom like to play video games,pause the game and left it on tv screen for longtimes like about an hour or more.That why u have a permanent screen burn in.Now u have only one choice keep it and used it as is or get rid of the tv.The Screen panel replacement is not an option,because the screen panel replacement will cost the same as a new tv.
Hi, Do you get sound in tv? What is model and brand of your tv? Does tv show any on-screen display? Does tv remain power up or shuts down after a while? Let me know above info to diagnose problem. Thanks.
The high pitch you are hearing is probably due to failing electrolytic capacitors in the power supply module. Eventually this will no longer function. A tell tale sign would be swollen caps "tops are convex" on this pc board usually 1000mf 25 v caps or simular. I would refer to competent tech for repair of module to component level.
Sounds a little high? look as long as you get a warranty on their work... What I do is ask, ring, around with the details you have now gotten, ask, say whats the cost to replace bla bla bla board on a bla bla bla TV? like doctors it always pays to get a "Second Opinion"
