Question about Polaroid FLM-3734B 37 in. LCD HDTV
Guru may be right and he may be wrong. I doubt your set is a Plasma. More likely an LCD set. IF that is the case, then the power supply to the inverters that make the high voltage for the back lights could have failed. To see if this is the case turn the set on and hold a flashlight close to the panel. If you see an image moving then the problem COULD be as simple as a few capacitors letting go in the supply (hence the puff of smoke). The tell tail sign is a bulged top on the round parts on the board where AC goes in. They are inexpensive (only a few bucks). The hard part is finding someone to do the work that won't rip you off. The repair should be less than $150 if you got lucky and that is what failed. SHS 76.

Sounds like the lamp burnt out. this can happen. I'm not sure how old you set is. but for the cost of the repair, you can get a brand new TV.. good luck
