Cheater Philips Service center

Dear Sir,

I have a Philips DVD player. 2 month back it was not working . I gave my DVD player to the philips service center named as Sarala Electronics, Sahid Nagar, Bhubaneswar, Orissa, 751007 to check the problem. But they told me next day that Lense of your DVD damaged hence we replace the lense & charged me Rs886.00 Then I told them that why you changed the lense without my information. Pls return my DVD on previous condition. They returned me ,but when I checked my DVD on another philips show room they show me that you IC of the DVD player was changed by previous service center & there is no problem to the lense of DVD player. When I tred to contact the previous service center they told me that we aren't responsible for this . We can repair your DVD player by replacing the Card .
Pls give me the suggestion that what will I do ?
Either I will go to consumer court or --?

My dvd player is refusing to play any dvds and just keeps saying 'insert a playable disc'. it was working fine a week ago

Its Laser Pickup Unit has damaged. You have to replace it with same type and number. Insist on same type and number, since Philips have special Laser Heads for their sets. just buy it from Philips Authorised Service center at your town. You have to give them the exact model number of you DVD or take the Pickup unit with you as sample. You have to disassemle the systems' mechanism to take it out. If you have the skill to disassemble and reassambe the DVD mecchanism, you can do it by youreslf at home. Otherwise, get it repaired by any experienced service tecchnician or by authorised service center. OK.

I think your DVD software has been corrupted,you have to visit philips shop to get repair your dvd. they may advice you to change motherboard of DVD as in many position software won't be reinstalled and IC cannot be replaced.
its better to repair it with philips service center or buy new DVD.

Where do i find a service center for my philips portable dvd player near in makati, Philippines?

....ok here are some toll-free telephone numbers from Philips: might try "phyllis the online chat" assistant:

...and here is the contact email screen for your DVD player, just ask
them first IF your product was recalled and THEN ask if a local center
near you can help. Japan has some of the better service centers for your area and/or your local center will probably send it there anyway.

Faulty dvd player sold by croma, malad west. withing 2 weeks of the purchase the dvd player stopped working. DVP5996K is the product number. The service center people came home and took the player, for 1...

take it to the retailer and simply demand a new one, or that they contact the authorised reapir agent, ive worked for LG, Teac, Sanyo, Sony, AWA, Pebble Electronics, DSE, and always, when it got to desperate measures, simply go to place of purchase with receipt and explain situation. Good luck.
