Screen shows no signal
HDTV sets are different from the old analog sets.
If your set is showing No Signal or Weak Signal you will have to do the following.
1) Connect an Antenna or Cable to the input on the back.
2) Go into the Channel signal source menu and select either the Air/Antenna or Cable option.
3) Go into the Auto Program Scan menu and SCAN in the channels.
Now you can watch available channels.

Polaroid FLM-3732 TV
My FLM-3732 did the same thing yesterday. But I had a had time getting it to come on and it finally did.But when viewing with the analog tuner I could see some hum in the picture.The digital ones looked normal.
Today when I turned it on the LED went blue but then dimmed and slightly flashed/flickered.
On the power supply board there were 2 very small 1000 microFarad 10V capacitors that looked odd.The tops were slightly pushed up.
I pulled them off and they both read too low.Only about 200 microFards.
Replaced them both with a couple of 1000 microFarad 16V capacitors from the junk drawer.
Now it works normal again.

37" Polaroid Flat Panel with Blue light but NO PICTURE
I'm still in the middle of getting capacitors so that I can try Stiv0's suggestions and I think it will work because the back of the old capacitors were swollen like the pictures shown. I had trouble finding the capacitors because the electronics stores don't want to sell customers parts because they can't charge ridiculous prices for 10 minutes of work. I ended up finding the 1000uf (microfarad) 10 volt capacitors on a website for $1 per package of 6. There is a minimum $10 purchase for delivery so I'll have 60 in a few days which isn't bad. After shipping it'll only cost $17 to fix my TV. Here is the website if you are having the same problems I am.
If radio shack or the electronics stores won't sell the capacitors to you give this a shot.

Dvd player does not hold a charge ( has a new battery )
take a voltmeter and test charger or borrow a known good one from a friend if you know anyone who has one , sounds like bad charger word--- it is much better to run all rechargeable devices mostly all the way down before recharging as these batteries will do what is know as establish memory and will shorten battery life do not leave on charge except when charge is needed
