Hi

Thanks for using FixYa. From what you have described it seems that you might have a backlight and/or an inverter board issue with this TV set. It could also be due to the inverter circuits for the backlights. The inverter is the power supply source for the backlights. There could also be a screen driver problem; if it is then you have to change the entire inverter board. All this is only recommended if you have some kind of expertise for checking the internal circuitry of the TV as these units have high voltages running even when the set is switched off. The cost to change the inverter board including labor would be around $250, if you get this done by a professional. Please revert back for more help.

There is no glass or plastic screen infront of the LCD panel.
If the screen is damaged you will need to replaced the entire LCD panel.

SOURCE: i have a sony 40 inches bravia flat screen hd and

Could be the decoder:

1. unplug the TV ans wait a few mins.
2. If you have digital cable box or dish tuner reboot those as well (likely your issue)

What you have is artifacting what that means is tiling garbiling and freezing this happends when the data in the digital stream just stopped hence Frozen.

Try those things rule out your cable tv box first or your sat box, if this is OTA over the air your antenna.

1. Try DVD's if it happends during a DVD you do have a decoder issue if it does not you need to talk to your cable tv or sat operator.

So you got 3 possiabilites here 1. the worse Decoder, 2 cable company or satalite provider, 3 your antenna is in the wroung position.

I sure this will help.

This is a common problem with Polaroid sets. I would check the power supply/inverter board for any capacitors with bulging tops. The typical ones that cause this problem are 10uf 450V caps.

I have a 37 inches polaroid tv and, it was working fine at night, in the morning when I turn it on, a a black spot show on the right side of the screen


Depending which model, this tv may have an inverter master and slave module set. I find best to replace as a pair. These modules feed the flourescent lamps that backlight you lcd screen. more than likely the one failing is on the same side as the spot you are seeing. I always first look at the power supply panel, to be certain that capacitors on this board have not failed or leaked out.
