Maybe-
There are two cheap possibilities; a blown fuse and/or a blown thermistor. The latter are used to limit inrush current to the power supply by having a higher resistance when cold and a lower resistance when warm. They start out at under 10 Ohms and decease to values sometimes lower than 1 Ohm and produce kind of a 'soft-start' which avoids damaging certain parts in the front end of the power supply. They will often fail when hit with a heavy surge although they are not fuses by design.
If you remove the back panel of your set after leaving it unplugged for a few hours, look for a smaller board with larger parts on it that seems related to the AC cord and attaches to other sub-assemblies with multiple connector-equipped wires. This will be the power supply. Inspect it for any signs of burned areas and also for any fuse you can recognize. If you see a pair of dirty looking wires sticking up out of the board, this is likely the remains of a thermistor. If intact, it will have a disk between the wires.
You may be able to buy a replacement board from Polaroid or here:

Hi, my LCD Polaroid FLM-3701 went through a power outage and now doesn't get power any more. The power led doesn't show any light. I saw a capacitor repair kit available, and four 680 uF capac


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

We had a pwer outage last night and my comuter shutdown. This morning when I turned it back on the monitor will only stay on for about 15 seconds of inactivity before going into powersave mode. How do I...


The monitor goes to power save because no signal is coming from the computer - this means that the computer was fried by the power surge that caused the outage. To find out what was fried inside the computer you must open it and test its components one at a time, starting with the power source - time to take it to someone that has other parts to test it, or to an repair shop.

Our electricity went out and now we have it back on


Most times when a power outages occur, most everything that's plugged into an outlet receives a "Power Spike". Basically it's a shock wave traveling through the neighborhood power grid when the electricity turns OFF and ON.
Hopefully the TV didn't receive too much damage. Inside the TV, there is a fuse that may need to be replaced. Radio Shack or other electronic store will carry these fuses. If this doesn't solve the problem, the Power Supply Board maybe damaged.

Your control board may have been fried by the power outage.  Have a qualified LG technician check the unit.  They may have to order a replacement control board.

Polaroid 37 in LCD TV


There is not a good solution. If you read about the Polaroid 37" LCD HDTV, you have a problem and it's the same one that many of us have. According to Polaroid's service center, the control box needs to be replaced. Polaroid does not stand by this product. The company gives you a lot of lip service about how many they sell and how few problems they have - they're lying. The TV's should be recalled and I'd suggest you join many of us to demand it. Write BBB, write the company where you bought the TV, write any consumer group you can think of - Polaroid TV's are junk. Sorry you've got one. Sounded like a good deal and Polaroid used to manufacture quality - no more.
