There is a post by Stivo on this board that has helped many fix this type of problem. There are two capacitors on the power supply board that go bad and if replaced can fix this problem . The parts can be purchased at your local Radio Shack for about five dollars or less. I just did it today and it worked!!!
tim578, Unit's main power supply needs inspection and repair. Check for videos that deal with DIY repair of your FLM-3734b on youtube. May need to replace BAD (failed) electrolytic filter capacitors, and other components on unit's multiple dc voltage output "switch-mode-power-supply" board. You're going to need a lot of luck getting this one fixed!! You will need to do a lot of surfing to understand the polaroid problem!!
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
If I may ask what was the fix suggested to you? What may have happened, is something that often happens. Remember when something malfunctions, it usually does so for a reason, until that reason is exposed any repairs will be temporary. I usually tell people to have their sets checked out be a qualified TV technician which to me is the best advice. However if the person wants to do it themselves I usually offer troubleshooting help, not "shotgunning" help. Shotgunning is what caused you to seek a repair without the benefit of troubleshooting, so if you want me to help you do this yourself, I do require that you have some understanding of electronics, because I am going to have you take measurements and readings if you have the equipment to do so.
