This sound like a problem with the televisions main board tuner section. The problem may be expanded solder connections to the ground.This expansion is caused by the heating and cooling of the circuit board as the television is being used. The heating causes the joint to expand and when cooled after the expansion the joints cannot contract properly due to the over expansion.this causes the connections to fail. This would cause the distortion and buzzing sounds coming from the television, due to the loss of the grounding contact. This unit should be taken to a service center for a complete testing and servicing for intermittent operation.The Polaroid customer support telephone number is 1-866-289-5168. Call them and tell them the model number of you television and the problem you are having with the intermittent video operation. They will be able to tell you where you can take or send your television for service. I hope this information helps you with your problem.

    On the power supply board there were 2 very small 1000 microFarad 10V
    capacitors that looked odd.The tops were slightly pushed up.
    I pulled them off and they both read too low.Only about 200 microFards.
    Replaced them both with a couple of 1000 microFarad 16V capacitors from the junk drawer.

But what is the problem with the TV, it is pretty rare for the main logic board to go out, most failures are the power supply module and the backlight inverter board.

Blue LED light comes on but nothing else happens when turned on

It can be the main board or the power supply, look at the power supply first since it is easier to get to, look for burnt parts, bad capacitors, etc.
Please post back what you find
