More poor customer service

I was watching my TV and suddenly smelled something burning. To my surprise my TV picture went out but the sound worked and then smoke started billowing out of my television. I bought the TV about 1 1/2 yrs ago. Luckily I was home when this happened or I wouldn't have a home. I called Polaroid and they said it is out of warranty and if I could turn on the TV so they can do a diagnostic check. Excuse me, but if you turn on the TV my house will burn down. So they offered my a chance to buy a refurbished television for a little less than what I purchased this one for at Walmart, but other than that nothing we can do. The sad thing is that I have another one I bought about the same time period. I will have to unplug it so it does not burn my house down. This is ridiculous that a company can put out such a dangerous item with no care for people safety. They need to do a recall same as Toyota is doing.
I won't advise anyone to purchase a Polaroid TV ever. I've had older model televisions that lasted longer than this. Class action suit I'm down for it.

DVD repair problem
After two years of use, our Polaroid portable DVD player stopped working. Apparently it can no longer receive a charge from the AC adapter. A local electronics repair shop indicated, and customer-service ... read full review6 Replies - Latest reply on 06/19/2007
I had the exact same problem. When I googled it I saw pages of complaints. I almost gave up because it seems that most think it's cheaper to replace the TV. NOT TRUE. When I called Polaroid they wanted me to purchase a $250 control box, install it myself, then send back the old one for $100 refund; no warranty, no guarantees. I continued my search and found a local repairman here in Georgia who fixed my TV for $120 with a 90 day warranty. He even agreed to look at it free of charge. Call 678-590-1337 and ask for Steve. His service was excellent and the workmanship remarkable. The TV works better than when it was new. He found several things wrong but only charged me what he quoted. In the meantime, I am trying to find a way to start a class action law suit against Polaroid. A TV should last more than 2 years or it should say DISPOSABLE on the label.2 Replies - Latest reply on 06/08/2010Add reply
ILLINOIS -- I bought a 24 inch Polaroid in October of 2005 and after 2 years it went out totally! No sound, no picture, no controls work at all. I was told by a TV repair service that it is a piece of junk, made in China. It costs more to fix it than it is worth. I enjoyed it for the 2+ years, but had some audio interference problems. The manual is not very useful and the remote is hard to manipulate well, especially for men who have larger hands. Do NOT buy this product. NOT recommended.
I am sorry I bought it-especially considering this is the first time a TV has ever just gone dead for me. The service department is little to no help.
CHARLOTTE, NORTH CAROLINA -- This maybe helpful to someone out there, if your still holding onto this model TV. I've had issues with my Polaroid TV model TDX-03211B going completely blank, but I can still hear the station I'm on. To fix it or bring the screen back hold the power button (on the side) of the TV, and unplug the TV from the wall socket. While still holding the power button, give it say 20 seconds then plug the TV back in. My screen comes back every time and I've had mine since 2008. My DVD went out after the warranty expired, but after some button play I figured out a way to hard cycle the TV from the buttons on the side, which fixed the DVD player for a day, but I haven't been able to duplicate the steps. I'm not referring to just the power button. I remember holding multiple buttons at the same time along with the power button. The TV went through a start up screen like a PC. Now all the DVD player does is state no disk even though I can eject and insert DVDs and hear the disk spinning.

My TV broke as soon as the year was up. Cost more to fix than replacing it. Last time I buy a Polaroid TV from Wal-mart. Going to Costco where they warranty their TV for two years. 2 Replies - Latest reply on 08/21/2011Add reply
I purchase a 32 inch Polaroid DVD TV from Walmart in Nov Of 2007. After two months the DVD player stop working they sent me another two onths after that the replacement stop working so I gave up calling them again. while watching TV in October 2010 a puff of smoke came out the top so I rushed to unplug it. I immediately called Polaroid, obviously they knew exactly what was going on they told me it would cost $222 for the part. I said no way that TV cost me $629 back in 2007, and now they are worth about 300 why can't they fix it or repalce it. I went online and to any website and saw so many people with the same problem that I am having with Polariod. I wonder how much it would cost to hire a lawyer to do something about Polaroid.1 Replies - Latest reply on 01/09/2011Add reply
I purchased a 27" Polaroid LCD HDTY for just under $600 three years ago. Not the most expensive but a "good brand". Within 14 months a shadow started growing on left side of screen. It continued to duplicate until entire screen had a wavy shadow pattern. Since it was out of warranty, I just moved TV to spare bedroom. Less then two years later with little use, the entire screen went to a mass of colored lines. I will be sure not to buy anything with the Polaroid name on it again.2 Replies - Latest reply on 09/18/2010Add reply
