I would never buy a Philips again, mine packed up inside 5 years so was therefore out of warranty, nothing I can do about that apart from tell people about buying a Philips TV. E-mails to the so called "customer care" have yet to be replied to. It wasn't cheap, my less expensive Toshiba on the other hand is still going after 15+ years.
The Philips DVD recorder (3 years old) is also on the blink, but that's another story.

I had the usual fun and games trying to get the internet company I bought it from to replace it but they eventually did just before Christmas.
Now in January 2008, two weeks after the one year warranty expires, the one off switch breaks.
How do Philips get away with building a TV that within 13 months has two major failures. Incidentally, I have another Philips smaller flat screen TV which also has a broken on off switch. (read more)

I bought a Philips 30PF9946 TV online. It has a VGA connection on it, so I connected my computer to it, and after about 2 minutes it had the computer fonts still on it, even when I changed it back to the TV source. It also has got permanent colour stains on it from TV channels. I turn it off at night and put in on again in the morning, and they're still there! (read more)

I thought I was buying a quality product from a quality manufacturer, but after just 11 months our state of the art Philips TV won't even switch on, and trying to get Philips to take responsibility is a nightmare. I have spent hours on their 15p per minute phone line. Twice they have arranged to collect it for repair, twice I've taken time off work, and they still haven't collected it. Even if they do fix it, they will only guarantee their work for three months. If they were confident... (read more)
