Bought a universal (tilt) wall mounting system, but the holes on the back of the LCD tv/dvd are too close to the dvd player, and are not standard to the dimensions of the wall mounting kit. I looked for an adapter online, but I am unsure which will fit my LCD TV/DVD (AKAI-- LCT3201TD).

Not sure whether you can get replacement under warranty if the TV fell off and was damaged. If it was wall mounted and the bracket broke or collapsed you could claim from the bracket supplier or the installer. But if it was on a stand sitting on a table and was knocked down then there is not much that can be done.
Best to call the place from where you purchased the TV and ask what they say.
The VE1020 didn't come with a mount. It came with round plastic spacers (16) that were 1/4", 1/2", and 3/4" thick. You could stack these on the mounting screws to get the clearance you needed for under the cabinet mounting. You will note that there are 4 through holes for the mounting screws, one in each corner of the chassis. Sheet rock screws of different lengths will work. You can easily just cut four small blocks of wood or use 3/4" - 1" wood dowel cut to the length you need. Drill a through hole in the dowel. Paint them to match if they will be exposed.
It sounds like the audio cable from the DVD drive may be loose or damaged. Did you wall mount the TV and this is when the problem started or has it always been like this? If its under warranty, contact the helpline on 0871 2000 463, be warned, if its becuase the cable is damaged by a wall mounting screw, its clearly evident and they will charge for repair.
This is a very common problem with the 32" TDA-03211C TV/DVD combo unit. Poloroid sent me three replacement DVD units in the first year and each began doing this same thing after a few months (chunking noise and could not load disks). Finally my warranty expired and it failed again. I ended up with two units left after all those exchanges, so I took one apart to see if I could figure out what was going wrong.
In switching the units out one day, I noticed that the forward facing side of the DVD box was getting very warm even when it is not being used. Also, the dvd's felt very warm when ejected from the unit. I also noticed that the metal plate which is behind the picture screen and only about 1/4" from the forward facing side of the DVD box was even warmer (about 110 to 120 degrees F). This heat is distorting the thin metal and plastic parts in the DVD unit, causing the parts not to be in correct contact and alignment (disk won't play and sometimes won't eject).
With the front and top covers removed from the DVD box and the box laying flat on a table (and no dvd in unit of coarse), I pushed downward firmly on the black plastic disk at the top of the drive, and also on the lever arm that is accessible through a hole near the left front of the unit until they bottomed out to bend them down some (the lever arm was warped upwards where it was actually rubbing the top of the case - that was the chunking sound I heard).
I then went to O'Rielly auto parts and bought a 1'x2' sheet of exhaust manifold gasket material for $8. This material is not flamable and will withstand temperatures that would melt this TV into a puddle. I cut the gasket material so that it would fit neatly inside the top cover of the DVD box (metalic side up), then put the top cover and front cover back on the unit. I cut another piece of the gasket material to fit snugly in the space between the forward facing side of the DVD box and the metal plate that is behind the picture screen (metalic side facing picture screen). I then reinstalled the DVD box into the TV. It was a little tighter fit than before, but went in OK and is still removable with some effort.
Both of the previously non-functioning DVD units I have play fine now in the TV. The disks eject perfectly every time now and I notice a significant difference in the temperature of the disks when I eject them. No more strange noises either.
These DVD units are fine and are actually quite well built, but they are just mounted too close to a heat source. A little insulation is all it needs. I cant believe Poloroid's design people can't figure this out.
Look on the back of the unit. On the right hand side will be a removable panel. Inside the panel is a recessed area where the TV Tuner module is mounted. It plugs into a small D connector on the left side of that recessed area. If there is no tuner module mounted in the recessed area, you will not be allowed to select the TV options in any of the menus.
