In the Polaroid FLH-3701, the fuse is located on the power supply board, next to the AC power connector. It is a small black cylinder. It is labelled F1. Value is 5 amp, 250 volts.
A fuse does not blow for no reason. Most commonly a fuse will fail because of a short someplace on the board. I have this same TV. The fuse blew. The reason was transistor Q6 had shorted. There are two identical paired transistors on the output side. Q6 and Q7. They are both Infineon 11N60C3 MOSFET transistors. Check those for a short. There may be a burnt smell.
More commonly, this TV will fail because of bad capacitors on the power supply board.

It looks like your power supply might not be providing enough current to get the LCD to power up. This LCD needs about 3 to 4 amps to work properly.

Diagram where fuse is in the polaroid flm-3701


There is a fuse on the power supply board. It is labelled F1. It is a small cylinder near the AC connector. The F1 fuse is 5A 250V. How ever, capacitors are more likely to fail on this television.
The Polaroid FLM3701 has a problem with capacitors failing on the power supply board. If enough caps go bad, you will get no power. Not even a power light. Any capacitor that is swollen is bad.

Unfortunately modern televisions and monitors are full of electronic semiconductors of which many are likely have got destroyed along with your original power supply during the storm. A nearby lightning strike will send high voltage spikes down aerial cables as well as through socket outlets.
If you have contents insurance you should be able to claim for a new monitor.

The power supply fuse should be next the the ac input plug on the power supply. It should be a long cylinder type fuse, probably a T6.3AH/250V. You will want to replace those caps ASAP

Is there a coaxial input on this tv?


No because it is a monitor only; meaning it does not have a TV tuner of its own.

No power


Connect the TV to some other power outlet and see. If problem persists, please refer it to a qualified service technician, as either some fuse is blown or some components in the boards have failed.

Connect from wall cable to tv.


you are trying to use a monitor as a tv, you will need a tuner to get a pic, use a cable box or digital to analog tuner to get something
