Question about Polaroid Televison & Video
In 2009 I bought a flat screen tv made by polaroid and I turned it off one night the next morning i tried to turn it on but nothing the power light comes on and thats it no sound no picture
SOURCE: Tv won't turn on
The problem is the electrolytic caps in the switch mode power supply. They are located on the output side of the supply board. You can tell which ones are bad by the "bulge" on the top of each cap. All need to be replaced..

If you press the power button *on* your TV (rather than using the RC), does the power light still stay on red rather than turn green?

The most likely the TV has a power supply related problem or it maybe just a blown fuse inside the TV.
I can't say it's 100% the problem because I can't actually look at the tv over the internet.
If by some chance the TV is still under warranty, go that route.
If not under warranty and If you have some electronic experience, you can purchase a Service Manual over the internet and diagnose the source of the problem and fix it by soldering in the new part. The Service Manual will give you circuit diagrams, test points, and part# lists. Usually, cost under $20.
I hope I shed some light on the subject for you.
