There is a part insidethe TV that needs to be replaced; probably the main board. If the TV is under warranty—whetherthe original warranty from the manufacture or an extended warrantypurchased with the TV—call the company providing the warrantycoverage and they will arrange to have your TV repaired at little, orno cost to you.
If the TV is out ofwarranty, and you have the experience and you know what you're doing,you can fix the TV yourself. Purchase the service manual from themanufacture to get started. However, if you've never done anythinglike this type of repair before and you don't know where to start, Isuggest speaking with an experienced TV repair-person.
If you decide to pay forout of warranty repair by a professional repair shop, the total costwill likely be a minimum of $300 parts and labor. However, be warnedthat the cost could be considerably higher. A new 37" LCD from Walmart.com would cost you $468.
Since some brands willpay for your repair even if you're out of warranty, you shouldcontact the manufacture first for your full range of options. Ifthey're willing to fix the TV for free, let them!
