*Consumer Comment: Class Action Law Suit???
Of course after the warranty expired, the TV stopped working completely. A call to Polaroid informed me that this style TV was known to be defective, as hundreds of others have had the same problems (Black screen) and that the parts to repair it (if they could locate the part which I was told was nearly impossible) would cost me $300 and that I was better off just buying another TV!!!
They Do Not stand by their merchandise, and have ripped off hundreds of people. A three year old TV is expected to last a lot longer than three years. TV repairman won't even come look at it as they will not touch a Polaroid TV.
Polaroid should be reported to a higher authority and a class action suit should be issued against them.
