Polaroid Complaint - Taken to the Bank - 32" HD Widescreen LCD TV/DVD Combo
I guess I should have checked some of the reviews before buying this television from Walmart. I bought the Polaroid 32" HD Widescreen LCD TV/DVD Combo. I've had the TV for 1.5 years and mounted it on a wall in my bedroom. The TV did not have much use and was mostly used at night. One day I turned it on and saw red, blue, white and yellow lines running vertical on the screen. I called Polaroid and they told me that I would have to send the TV to them at a cost of $100.00 for shipping plus a $400.00 repair bill. The customer service representative (if that's what you want to call them) told me it would be better for me to buy a new set, and then proceeded to try to sell me another lemon. Before I hung up the phone, I told the CSR that I would not by anything with the name Polaroid on it. I will consult with an attorny about the posibility of filing a class action suit.
