I have a 37'' Polaroid TV that's just over 2 years old. For the past month or so every time I would turn on the TV it would make a loud humming/electronic sound. Today when I went to turn on the TV the blue light turned on but my TV didn't. I tried several times trying to turn off the TV but to no avail, it won't turn off, but there's no picture either. It's just that dang blue light. Can you help?

my POlaroid 37" did same thing blue light stayed on no pic or sound was 2 electrolytic caps on power supply board took back off and they were noticably bulged at top radio shack sells these caps at $3 apiece fixed mine works like new saw a video on here how to do it
it could be 2 caps on the power board, i had the same problem and for $3.39 at Radio Shack solved it.
There is a link on hre with pictures and instructions from stiv0, that works. Of course your on your own if you try it.
I had the same problem with mine. Replaced the capacitors and now it works. When you open the back of the tv up, the problem is with the 2 capacitors on the upper left of the top card. Mine didn't look damaged except for a very, very slight bulge on the top. If you've never soldered anything, you might want to take it to someone who has, otherwise, it's a pretty simple fix. I was surprised I could do it so easily.
If the warranty is still good, make Polaroid replace it. They make shoddy products and should pay for it. And never buy another Polaroid again.
Pretty good chance the power supply board is bad. A number of capacitors will become leaky and you lose all power. Some techs still know how to do componentLavalservice but most just change the board $$$$
