I made an easy tutorial for the cap problem. If you are not comfortable doing the work yourself other people have had Radio Shack do the it (very cheap and without shipping).
I feel that we are all in the same situation, if we had the money to get it fixed professionaly we wouldn't be on the internet searching out a solution.

if you have any problems please email me I will try my best to help you out for FREE!

It seems that the manufacturer of the Polaroid FLM-373b and other models of HDTV either used the wrong parts or there is a design problem. I found someone on the internet who said they replaced two capacitors on the power board and it started working just fine. I took the power board out of mine and sure enough the two caps with the 10v markings were swelled. I replaced them with two 25v caps and it is working just fine. All the other caps on the power board were 16v and above. So, I would assume they were shipped the wrong parts or they just put the wrong caps in to begin with. If you want to send me your power board I will fix it for $50.00 plus shipping.

Why is the blue light on front blinking

My answer is based on the model number here-AV-56WP74 or similar--blue light blinking is shutdown to protect the power supply in the set.

A few questions you could answer:

before this happened was screen red (too much) or had colors skewed or a little 3d looking?

The most common issue on this set if that is convergence and it can easily escalate to where it shuts the set down and blue blinks constant.

There is a simple way to confirm or deny that issue--Got someone willing to try that? Set will be unplugged and entire front grill under screen removed to try it(I can tell you how and what to do)

If no skill at all--consult a shop--if want I will answer questions or comments you post on this page--(add a comment button)

Power light just keeps flashing blue it won't turn on

rpwest51, Monitor internal "switch-mode-power-supply could be in what is known as "shutdown immediate" mode having sensed (detected) a fault condition with itself or the inverter lamp high voltage supply. You or qualified technician will need to investigate unit to determine root cause down to component level and decide if unit is viable candidate for cheap DIY ($8 parts cost) fix. Above all else, remember this! Your "cold-cathode-fluorescent-lamp" back-lit LCD monitor is no different than any other brand in it's basic design and operation. If you do your research you will also have a good idea as to how those new style curlie-Q energy efficient screw-in CFL ight bulbs work.Read through my higher numbered fixya profile pages and those of other CCFL lcd monitor techs profiles and follow the links you find there for all options that you may have. Hope this helps. 12fixlouie

52" Samsung LCD will not turn on. Blue light is on

Have you ssen the back light lit up? If not, the power supply may have problem. If it has back light, then the suspection are the main board, T-con and inverter. Those boards need checked to find out exact defective board.

If you have windows set to do automatic updates, you most likely had a windows update installed that caused this conflict with Win Media Player 11. No fix has been posted by Microsoft yet, so the only workaround is to Uninstall/Rollback Windows Media Player 11. Goto <Control Panel<Add/Remove Programs and remove Windows Media Player 11. Follow prompts, restart computer when prompted to. Also uninstall Windows Media Player 11 Runtime application following same procedure above.
This will roll your Windows Media Player back to version 10 or 9, whichever you had installed prior to version 11. You will need to re-configure Windows Media Player again.

Your Zen should now be recognized by WMP and Creative software. You probably need to upgrade your firmware at this point, follow the instructions on upgrading your firmware, and you should be good to go.

This is a windows problem, not a creative problem. Dont blame Creative for the screwed up hotfixes that Microsoft puts out on a regular basi

No power

Did the service tech actually look at the computer? I don't know how anyone could make this diagnosis without doing some testing. It could be the motherboard but it could be something else too. I would first suspect the power supply. They frequently go bad. Test that.

Flashes blue and then the tv shuts down

The tech is correct about the internal short inside the blue CRT. There is a way to remove that short by applying a small amount of current to burn the short but that might damage the CRT even more. At this point the CRT needs to be replace.
I will post the instructions on how to remove that short but you will need to have a good regulated power supply and limit the amount of current to 1 to 2 amps.

Blue power light is on, but no picture is displayed

The light does indicat that there is power to the sety but that doesnt mean that the power supplys working . Theres nothing uyou can do unless your a trained tech. The set should still have a parts warranty. Good Luck
