My Polaroid 32" LCD works fine, excepting the HDMI part.
I really miss this machine as it had many imput and outputs.
Would a replacement 'T-con drive board' most likely remedy my loss of HDTV?

Hard to say from here. I wouldn't go replacing boards without checking
many other things.
Did you do a factory reset?

From anything that I have read, Polaroid is not a particularly good product. Samsung,in my experience, would be a better purchase. And these "ports/plugs" are inputs (in/out)!

****************************
I have been very impressed with the Sony products I have
obtained...both new and off eBay. But for some reason when all the Brands
are lined up in WalMart one can see a distinct difference. And some of the
'name' Brands are not the best. That was why I chose the 'P' years ago.
My 33" Polaroid is quite old and I am supprised it lasted that long.
I had no picture problems like lost pixels, dark spots, ect. That Polaroid
weights twice and much as my 32" Emerson (which doesn't have a high consumer
rating).
I couldn't see behind the TV's on display in WalMart a few days ago
but it seems multiple outputs are becoming rare. I tried to take the back
off the Polaroid and couldn't. There must be some catchs one has to
release. I would love to see where the 'T-Con drive board' is, and if it
would be a bitch to replace.
.. ..There are tons of COMPOSITE, SGA, SGVA, Video to HDMI 'Converters', but
I only saw one Converter on eBay that went HDMI to Composite. There were a
couple on Amazon. . . .thanks for the reply.. .. chas

Considering Polaroid is known for cameras where the film is instantly
developed, you have to suspect the name on something that is unrelated,
like a TV set.

Either they've rented out their name, or have just picked some generic tv
and put their brand on it. Not a new thing, but not the same thing as
some might think it means, engineers toiling in the Polaroid labs to
design an especially good tv set.

Exactly, Polaroid, like GE, B&D, Westinghouse, and a thousand other
companies have sold their name for certain product lines. They have
nothing to do with the parent company other than the logo.

Sure, the real B&H went under eons ago. The only thing left is a
holding company pimping the name.

Google "tom petters polaroid" to get the story of what happened to
Polaroid. Basically Tom Petters (now residing in Leavenworth for the
next 50 years) purchased the name to put a respectable face on his ponzi
scheme.
