Question about Standard (CRT) Televisions
I have philips tv model# 27FV6441/37. on top of the screen there is 3inch of horizontal lines with the reflection of the picture. please help.
I'm having the same issue with this TV! From the top of the screen to
about two/three inches below there are thousands of horizontal lines with a
whitish tinge which seem to be reflecting what is just below these lines! I’ve
never seen this issue on any TV ever! From what I am seeing now is that many
people are having this issue and more! We should put a class action lawsuit
against them! If anyone knows anything, please post the info. Many tech forums
are loaded with issues for these TV’s but this issue seems to be prominent!
My mom had two Phillips TV’s; one just under two years, and the other just under a year and Phillips refused to fix either without a large expenditure on her behalf. She told me never to buy Phillips and I should have listened. Phillips used to be a great company so I don’t really know what has happened? This was a TV for my Grandmother and it wasn't at a bad price not to mention the picture was great albeit severely over scanned.
As for her TV, we had it about two weeks over a year and Phillips said there was nothing they could do! They said they would pay for the cost to replace the tube if I took it to one of their dealers but they said the cost to bring it there and repair would fall on me! Also if the issue was not related to the tube I would have to pay everything OOP! The lady laughed on the phone and said even if it had been under six months or under a year they would still only pay to fix the parts and everything else would cost me! WTF?
The moral of the story is NEVER BUY PHILLPS/MAGNOVOX EVER! You might be getting the TV deal of the century but it is not worth it in the long run. I originally thought my mom was nuts, but now looking back considering the issues others are having, and realizing the **** poor way Phillips support deals with ALL problems, they’re simply not worth the money or trouble. I WILL NEVER buy another Phillips, Magnavox, or Funai product ever again, whether it is a TV, clock, DVD player, and/or ANY electronic device! If you do you HAVE BEEN WARNED and WILL BE SORRY!
