If does not give any sign of power like standby light or screen light then it is power supply failure and power supply board would be replaced.
Power supply board is available in Shop Jimmy.
And if TV has power but does not power up due to some reason then most probably it is back light inverter board bad. It is also available in Shop Jimmy.
Service manual of LCD TV has no schematics to repair any board on component level.

The problem is the power supply of your television.The power supply have abnormal voltage supply output cause of leaked capacitor.The leak capacitor have bulging tops, so that you can identify the leak capacitor. Just remove the cover and find the power supply and replace new capacitor with same polarity.Hope it will help you.Thanks..

Won't turn on but the light turns from red to blue thendims slightly

Your TV is suffering from weak capacitors in the power supply and in the signal board. You will need an ESR meter to find the bad capacitors. Always use the same values of capacitors when replacing them.This is a common problem on the Polaroid TV. Thanks for asking and show a few hands of support!

Polaroid LCD TV has no power

The following link posted by stiv0 gives detailed instructions on how to replace the two capacitors that commonly go bad on this TV. When these capacitors go bad they prevent the TV from turning on. However, you still get a red light when you plug it in. Since your not getting a red light I'm not sure this fix will work for you. I'd open up the TV and see if the capacitors are bulged out as described in stiv0 post. If they are I'd go ahead and replace them and give the TV another try. This fix is fairly easy to do and very inexpensive so you don’t have much to lose.
