Class action lawsuit? Count me in! I bought mine in Dec 07 at Walmart. DVD worked for the first few weeks then quit. The picture and sound worked great until Nov 09 when it made high pitched noises then the picture went blank. All I get is a light blue screen. I tried the phone numbers and emails, I couldn't get hold of anyone. Oh well.

I'll use it for a night light until that goes, then maybe I'll bring it
to hunting camp and use it for target practice!!!
I have been disappointed as I ordered a TV a year ago and recently tried to hook up WII game system only to be frustrated as Polaroid has no contact number in Europe and I cannot get support from a company who I expected to help. Add reply
Polaroid LCD TV's
Last night I tried to turn on my TV and it would not turn on. So I went online to see if I could find a "FIX". What I found was hundreds of people having the same issue's with the same TV Manufacturer. ... read full review3 Replies - Latest reply on 11/10/2009
I new I should not have bought a Polaroid, because I new you get what you paid for. I new Polaroid was junk, but bought it anyway, because I was cheap and it was on sale for good price. Had it a year and the built in DVD player went bad, will not read the DVDs, should have spent an extra 100.00 Dollars and bought a good one, I guess I learned my lesson. Add reply
This TV is such a nightmare. Can no longer watch it in HD, have to mute sound due to high pitch noise, won't turn off or on, we have to keep unplugging it and replugging it to get it to come on, now we just leave it on all the time. Remote won't work. Every now and then we get a little blue colored box floating around the screen. TV is no longer under any warranty, we are out about $1100!! We were told by repair shop that these were actually computer monitors that were passed off as televisions1 Replies - Latest reply on 10/31/2009Add reply
I called Polaroid Cust. Service on 08/28/09 for a problem with a TV. This was under warranty. After doing everything asked they said they would send me out the part and then would setup a service call. ... read full review1 Replies - Latest reply on 10/28/2009

I too have been taken by polaroid. got mine at circuit city, as well. and to date it sits on top of my dresser. collecting dust. I had bought the combo. t. v and DVD player. well the DVD, and sound went. repair shop say's Polaroid does not respond. $100.00 and no repair's later, and here it sits. I did but a pair of external speakers that I hooked up through the headphone jack, so I can get volume. but it's original purpose of watching a movie in bed is just a dream!
if there is class action suit, sign me up!
We purchased a portable DVD in May 2009 and the item only worked for about one month then it tore up. We shipped it back and was told repeatedly within three weeks they were sending another. Today I have not received and I have called everyone in their company. They are all in meetings.

I bought a Polaroid TV with a built in DVD player. Within 1 year the DVD player stopped working so they sent me a new one. That one broke as well within 8 months. They will not send me another one because they "only guarantee up to 90 days for replacement parts". Obviously if 2 DVD players have broken under 1 year the company has made a faulty product. They do not send behind it, knowing that they make nothing that works. DO NOT BUY this product!!!!!1 Replies - Latest reply on 07/30/2009Add reply
We have had the TV for just over 2 years, first we noticed when you turn the set on it takes up to 3 minutes to get a picture. We were watching it and we heard a loud pop and a blue flash and sparks and no more TV! and no it was not a lightning storm. 2 Replies - Latest reply on 07/27/2009Add reply
I happened to notice that there are similar complaints regarding this TV. After approximately 18-20 months, the power comes on but NO picture. "Black out" on the screen.

Does anyone have any suggestion as to how I may resolve this issue?(Other then calling it quits and buying new.)email: email@example.com
I too made a call to the Polaroid Company. They actually attempted to sell me an extended warranty. After respectfully declining their offer I was told that maybe I could buy a replacement part that may or may not work. Yup...You guessed it....Not much help!
So if you're shopping for a new TV. STAY CLEAR OF THE POLAROID NAME!
We have had our TV for 2 years and it is dead. The LCD light that indicates that the TV is turned on comes on and is blue, but then the TV does nothing, no sound or picture. It will not even turn off, you have to unplug it from the wall for the blue light to go off. I wondered why it was so much cheaper than the others of the same size. There should be a recall on these.

This TV has been nothing but trouble and it is only seven months old. Now the DVD won't read the disc.
Walmart says I have to send it to the manufacturer because they only warranty 90 days. You could not give me another Polaroid TV or anything else.
IRVINE, CALIFORNIA -- I spent US$299 and bought this Polaroid portable DVD player less than 2 years ago and only play less than 10 times. Because I still have another older different brand DVD working very well. The only reason I bought Polaroid is because of it's Large size screen for my kids to share. But very bad quality and their customer support is ever worst than the product quality.

DO NOT Buy Polaroid products otherwise, you will feel very regret and angry like me.
CONWAY, ARKANSAS -- I want to let all consumers know that any Polaroid TV is not worth the money you pay for it. We bought a big screen HDTV in mid 2007, and four months later it went on the blink. After several weeks, ... read full review
