My tv was working fine in the morning. I went to turn it on in the afternoon and nothing. It is completely dead. I called the store where I bought it and the soonest they can come out is 2/4. Any solutions would be great.

Had the same problem with my wife at around the same time, seven months in. Assuming you're asking because you failed to keep your waranty papers, etc, calling the manufacturer for a replacement will do absolutely no good. you might do what i did and just go to mexico and buy another one. A good word of advice, try not to subject the next one to as much abuse.
I had a similar problem when there was a power outage or the lights went briefly out. I unplugged the TV and left it for a few days/weeks and then plugged it in and the TV worked. I think newer TVs should be treated like a home computer and put them on surge protectors.
I have the same TV and it did the same thing. I called Polaroid's customer support line and they were very helpful. They sent in a work order to the local servicer in my area. I then got the number of the place (VIEW ELECTRONICS) and called them a few days later. They said that it was a very common problem and that they knew exactly what part it needed and ordered it. At the moment, i am waiting for the part to arrive and when it does i can just take it into the store and it will take them about 20 minutes to install and that should be it. I'm not sure what caused it but hopefully this part will fix it. Hope this helped...
