    I really do not know who sands 2499 is nor where they got their degree!
    Don't mean to sound rude but there is NO TUBE inside of a DIGITAL TV ???
    The screen is driven by electronics and chips unlike the monitors of yester year ???
    I encountered a problem with my POLAROID 15'' HDTV while using it as a secondary monitor as well as continuing to have Time Warner Digital CABLE hooked to it.
    It is now DEAD.
    A friend who lives about a mile from me had a POLAROID 19' HDTV which was also hooked to Time Warner Digital though I do not believe she attempted to use it as a computer monitor and it too is LIFELESS.
    Either the High Def Digital system that Time Warner uses did not Play nice with the Polaroid HDTVs internal processors of there is a fault within the TV's processing system or it did not play nice with your computer.
    Could be a virus.....
    Get a new Electronic Board from the POLAROID Service Department and get a friend who knows just a little about electronics to install it for you. It really isnt too complicated as there are but a few wire harness's that have to be unplugged.
    The casing is really more complicated to take apart than it is to replace the board..
    Or buy a new tv.

Thats because your TV is not high definition and cannot process the high def signal. serial hook up does not give a highh def signal.

Polaroid 15" HD Widescreen LCD 1511-TLXB, turn on, stays on for about 30 seconds to 1 minute and then screen goes black, no sound, no menu

Do you have to turn it back on with the remote after this?

If so, then you may have set a timer by accident through the menu system.

More information would be required.

Polaroid monitor picture is shifted to left about an inch

Hi you may try
1)to key the auto(adjust) button at TV monitor keyboard if not ok,
2)to change display pixels density from PC display setting because TV monitor could not support the display pixels you using and sync.the picture on well.
3)also you may adjust monitor screen H position(it maybe not convenience for back TV).
