TV says no signal from direct tv box

Yes, something could have gotten changed.

Confirm what input connection the DirecTV receiver is connected to on the back of the TV. Using the remote, check that the TV has that input selected.

Sound doesn't work on television Worked fine yesterday but it isn't working today. I know the power went out briefly(few seconds) today.

Check a different input and all the connections to the TV to see if they are secure. After doing so and you still are getting no audio from all inputs then it means the audio processor failed. It was most likely caused by a power surge when the power went back on. This is fixed by replacing the main board. It is usually called a BU or AU board on Sony LCDs. Can be prevented in the future with a good surge protector or clean power surge filter.

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.
