Question about Polaroid Televison & Video
If your sets also produced kind of an acrid chemical odor when they failed, it was likely an electrolytic capacitor that failed catastrophically.
If you haven't done it yet, pull the plug on your set, allow it to stand for at least hours (better overnight) remove the back panel and look for the main power supply. It will have one or more transformers on the (probably separate) board. Check the board carefully for cylindrical devices anywhere between 1/4" - 1.5" in diameter and 1/2" - 2" high that have distorted cases or have dumped nasty looking deposits on the board around them.
Because of the way these turkeys fail, they may have damaged other parts as well so if you choose to replace them, don't be surprised if they immediately fail again. Depending on the manufacturing date of the sets, they may have additional capacitors waiting to fail; between ~ 2003 & 2005, millions of this kind of part were manufactured by otherwise reputable Asian companies but using (unknown to them) defective, counterfeit Chinese electrolyte that guarantees the eventual failure of the parts.
This kind of problem does not lend itself to DIY repairs.

1. push the reset button and if that doesn't work unplug all cords and memory cards (including sd) from wii and unplug av from the wii and the outlet in wall. Wait 2-3 min or unplug the wii overnight and The trick i use was to literally smack the power supply on the ground and plug it back in. It seemed to work for a few weeks, until you buy a new power cord Don't call Nintendo unless you've got some money. it'll be $82 bucks.

I have to tell you that I'm finding that this is about the life expectancy of the first generation LCD TV's. It could be fixed/repaired for between $100 to $200 at a good TV Service Shop.
You may just want to put that money into another TV!
