polaroid makes tvs?
I thought they just made photography items...

http://www.polaroid.com/products.php

I don't see TV there in the product list.
closest thing they have is a portable dvd player...

you sure it's polaroid and not perhaps panasonic?

Pepper, I thought the same thing until I read about the TVs on M3C. I find a couple of comments in this complaint interesting. '...LAST LESS THEN 1YEAR..' How long was the warranty? '...CHEAP...' Well?

weird. i didn't see any on walmart under "polaroid" but i saw them on google just now.


that's just freaky to me... to me they're "instant photos" not televisions.


but then hey, when it comes to TVs ... what do i know? I don't watch TV. The last time I had an urge to buy a TV... I came home with a cute reading lamp instead.

And you were money ahead, weren't you?

Polaroid most likely went out of the TV business, considering that it had a reputation for being a troublesome brand. Walmart no longer carries Polaroid TV sets...at the ones near me. The weak points on Polaroid TV's are the capacitors...apparently the Chinese company who built TV's for Polaroid put capacitors that weren't able to handle the power loads for these sets. Some people who had Polaroid TV's repaired replaced the stock capacitors with higher-voltage capacitors, and got their sets working again.

Many Wal-Mart stores still sell Polaroid TV's. However they are very poor quality and I do not recommend that anyone buy a Polaroid. They are on the verge of bankruptcy or someone is buying them out. Their cameras are still OK, but the TV's are pure JUNK.

Some WM's will not get Polaroid TVs, but many have no choice. Also don't buy RCA, Emerson, Element and possibly Apex. Sorry you had this problem -- keep after them and write a nice terse letter to the point and "maybe" you will get some satisfaction.
