Polaroid Complaint - Poorly Made Television
CANTON, MISSISSIPPI -- I bought the Polaroid 37" LCD TV. The model number is flm-373b. I bought this TV in March of 2007. Eighteen months ago I started having trouble with this TV. When I turn it on it makes a loud whining noise. When I try to watch a show in hi def, the TV just goes crazy. There are lines and different colors, and it continues to make loud noise. I can't use the remote control to turn it off, and I can't turn it off manually.
I have to turn off the surge protector or unplug it. When I contacted Polaroid, the man said he was sorry that I enjoyed my TV for such a short time. Since the one year warranty was up, he offered to send me another TV for $300.00 Dollars. I would have to send them my TV back to them at my expense. He said it would be expensive to repair my TV. I can't see how he could tell me how much it would cost to repair my TV when they haven't even seen it. I"i still have it!". The TV they will send me will only have a three month warranty.
I refuse to send a TV that I paid almost a $1,000.00 For, and then pay another $300.00 For another Polaroid TV that may not be any good. For anyone planning to buy a television, please do not buy a Polaroid. Please, please don't.
