    Chances are that it's the LED backlights that have failed. The Polaroid is probably lit from the edges of the screen rather than directly behind.

    This sort of thing is repairable. Whether you want to try this yourself to keep the costs down, or put it in the hands of a repairer and pay them for their service is really a choice only you can make. Weigh that against the cost of a replacement set.

    For an idea of what's involved, have a look at this Youtube video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TJUtrExz-aI

    For DIY use, the LED lighting kits run at £50-£70 in rough terms.
