I was gone for a week. Upon my return, the Polaroid FLM 2632 tv will not power up. The breaker for the room that the tv is in was tripped. A storm may have caused the breaker to trip. The tv was connected to a surge protector. No other electronics connected to the circuit were affected. If the tv is damaged due to a power surge, is it cost effective to have the tv repaired?

Your power supply board needs to be REPAIRED not REPLACED, replacing the board will just make the problem happen again in two years or less, if you can use a screwdriver you can send me the board and I will repair it for less than it would cost you to do it yourself ($50) with the correct components. Email for further instructions!

Having browsed the user manual I wonder if you plugged in the Sony BDV T57 Home Theatre System while the Polaroid FLM-2632 tv was powered down via the optical cable .
Then powered up the Sony BDV T57 Home Theatre System first and then powered up the Polaroid FLM-2632 tv
Maybe the Polaroid FLM-2632 TV has to detect that the Sony BDV T57 Home Theatre System is connected and powered up when the Polaroid FLM-2632 powers up. To activate its digital audio out ????
The note part about only being available only under HDTV (cable/air) mode. Might be the cause of your hassle also ?

More than likely the lamp ballast power supply has gone bad. If its still under it's 1 year warranty they will fix it for free. If not a good service shop will probably charge you between $100 to 200 to fix. Blessings, A/V Media Tech Guy.
Either one of two problems, the main power supply has an issue or has gone bad. 'Not supplying the correct voltages to your processing/controlling board' or that you are having problems with your processing/controlling board. My guess is the main power supply board. A Good TV Service Shop would give you an idea of what the cost of repair should be. Call around. Blessing, A/V Media Tech Guy
