I have a 32 inch flat screen tv by Polaroid that when you turn it on by the remote or the tv button, the blue light come on but the tv doesn't. So what I did is un-plug the tv leave off for a few minute, plug back and the tv would come on but the sound loud and a lot of garbage sounds off.
That would last for about 10 min. and it would go away and the tv would be fine as long as I leave it on. This happen about (3) days in a row, now the tv does not come on at all.
Can this be fix? We have had the tv for (3) years this year.
It can be fixed. I had this problem almost a year ago. I did an extensive search online and found a solution. Apparently there's a couple of caps that need to be replaced. The tv is manufactured in Southeast Asia where they use cheap parts. They know the tv will go bad in about a year or so but i'm sure they could care less.
I went to Radio Shack and purschased two caps and a soldering kit for $13. That's all it took to fix it. Keep trying to find it on the web again with no luck. It had step by step instructions. If you just unscrew the back you'll be able to find the bad caps, desolder, and replace with the new caps.

Are you talking monitor rather than tv? I have an LG 22 inch monitor and the on off button is on the bottom, If I don't hit it right or just tap it, it won't turn off but flashes. Where do you have it plugged in? Is it with some other electronics, or right to the wall outlet? I'm really at a loss as to what your problem really is. Are you using the remote? One quick fix might be the battery's in the remote. If they don't have enough power, short or no signal will be sent to tv or not being able to decipher it.
Most universal remotes don't have the screen mode button. So, your better off with the orginal remote for the TV.
The cheapest place I can find one for you is NewRemoteControl.com
It's going for $49.95
It's a little pricey, but it will have all the option buttons for the TV.
I hope I answered your question. Please rate me. :)
well if the light stays blue , that means its still on ...what you may need to do is go to your menue and select the setup selection and then go to tuning band.....i belive it will be on page 32 of you manual, under customising the setup settings....in order for the tv to start working it needs to be able to scan for channels.....if you are useing a cable company like comcast or direct tv...depending on how you pluged it into the tv ,(like using the input 1 or 2 , s-vidio, cable , ectra,)...you need to push the input button thats on the lower right side of your remote and select the propper input area as to how you hooked up your cable box
