I was just wondering if you did get your tv fixed. Polaroid won't even talk to me about my tv. I've only had it for 6 months and it's completely dead. Won't power on or anything. I agree with the class action suit!

This is actually a bit of a tough one to answer. It really depends on just what the cause is of the flickering is. The flickering could be anything from just a poor signal or cable or connector to a board issue inside. I also don;t know what level of repairs you are comfortable doing etc.
Your real problem here is if it is inside the tv you probably have to send it off to a repair shop. Polaroid has had so many problems with these that they no longer support them. I have heard there was talk of a class action suit but couldn't provide any details on that as I just have no idea if it is true or not.
If you contact Polaroid you can see if they can provide you with contact information of a repair shop. Just go to http://store.polaroid.com/world_wide_contacts and click on support and then find your local contact numbers. Then they should be able to point you towards someone more local to you. You should be able to talk to them and they can talk to you and narrow down what the problem might be.
A word of caution here is to get a repair estimate first. This could be a minor thing or major but you can easily spend more money fixing this than you will just buying a new tv. Expensive repair parts, labour and shipping are all things to consider.
if nobody will repair the tv, then your probably better off buy a new one. yours could have the bulbs blow, there could be something wrong with the board or the power supply. i don't recommend working on a tv because they are very easy to mess up and do even more damage. for your next tv, get a higher rated brand like samsung or sony. they tend to be more reliable and are easier to fix/find somebody to fix
