Re: clicking and buzzing when turned on takes 30min to 1...
The fix to the black screen problem which is posted on Fixya has a pretty good chance to fix this too.If you have a soldering iron it costs less than $10 and will eventually have to be done anyway.The site has very good instructions,just follow them carefully.

Try unpluging the unit for a few minutes. And try again.
To reach Polaroid's warranty services call 1-866-289-5168. Polaroid's TV warranties cover the units for 1 year similar to most manufacturer warranties. For TVs less than 31 inches Polaroid requires you to carry the unit into a servic center for repair. For TVs 32 inches and larger Polaroid provides in home service.
This is a problem with the switching transformer or the ballast used to fire the backlight. You will have to replace the ballast and or the switching transformer soon. In order to replace these items, I would suggest taking it to a qualified TV technician for servicing.
I hope this helps,
I suspect you have a bad set of capacitors in the control module. This problem usually starts out as a high pitched noise but can lead to the TV not turning on. Please see the link below, posted by StivO. It gives step by step instructions on how to replace the capacitors. This is a very inexpensive fix.
Since the TV is less then a year old and still under manufacturers warranty, I would suggest to take back to the vendor to get it fix because this LCD behavior is not going to get any better.
The failure on this TV is related to a power supply in most cases if the TV is turning OFF by itself or needs to be unplug to let cooldown and it works afterward.
A wire in the set got too hot and broke away, had to pay £140 to get it fixed, was told it's quite comman in alot of lcd tv's, as in all makes... I t should have been for a lcd bush 37 inch tv,,,not that it makes any difference it applies to all flat lcd screens, I just posted in the wrong part to begin with.. Sorry.
I have the same problem, very unreliable, just tried solution posted on this board and it worked. Turn on - while LED Bliinks push the channel button - also tap back a few times not too hard not too soft - possible problem(s) here, as suggested on tyhis board, capacitors (sic?), poor soldering connection, (In which case tapping might make it worse, but if you have no pic, nothing lost nothing gained), good luck, repair work suggested at about 200 bucks on this board.
