Question about Philips Magnavox 42MF521D/37 Television

1 Answer

Who Do I call ??

Ok I set up an appointment to have my TV fixed, they called back and said that it is classified under "Paid With Cash" and is not able to fix the tv without me paying for it.

I asked them who I would call and they said it would be in the sales receipt and only number that shows is 1-800-282-6280 ""
but that number is for Vonage.

So who would I contact on this matter, to see why is says I am not covered even though I purchased the "2YR SVC PLAN" and my 2 years are not up yet.

Who did you buy the TV from? That is who you need to call. And don't use the number on the Sales receipt. Locate the store on the internet, or using a phone book, and check or use the number given there.

Hello Brad, obviously the repair man messed it up!
Have you paid him?
Call him back, if he won't (or can't) get a refund and go to the manufacturers website (customer service)
If the guy won't pay you back, mention the ombudsman...
Good luck??

Ihave a 50 in lcd vizio its been 4 months that i bought it it doesnt turn on at all,i dont know where i left the receipt

It should have 1 year warranty---if paid by credit card etc you can use that with most major stores--most will work with you on this.

Also most warranty stations will "take it" under warranty--they want to get paid to fix the unit under warranty--we have done this in our shop.

My Vizio just shut off and lost power it a 50 inch and dont understand why?I didnt plug anything in to it so why does this happen it wont turn back on Todd P.A.

This same thing happened in my 32 in vizio and vizio paid an HDTV tech to come out to my house to fix it. He says he ALWAYS gets calls on vizios and this same thing is always the problem. He said Vizio paid more money for the screws on the tv then they did the power board in the tv. You want to either have someone fix it or buy a new power board and fix it yourself. It took the tech 15 min from start to finish to fix my tv and he had drove 2 hours to get here.

My samsung plasma tv will not turn on. It did the same thing yesterday and I unplugged it and plugged it back in and was able to turn it on. I have only had it around 9 mths.

If your tv is within the one year warranty period, I suggest you call 1-800-Samsung to schedule a service appointment and ask that they send out a Samsung Field Engineer and not an ASC (Local tv shop). The Field engineer is alot better trained and well equiped to diagnose and repair your set.

My Insignia 32" hdtv shut off suddenly while we were watching tv,and now we can't turn it on. The green power light flashes on and off constantly. My big question is, is this fixable, and if so, how much...

Is it not still under warranty? T.V's always come with a standard warranty, I always opt for the extended version. Depending on how much you paid for the T.V in the first place which is going to be the cheapest? fix or replace? Most engineers offer a no fee call out.

Z50PX2D 50" - I heard a loud pop and now only a washed out black and white picture

it is wonderful that lg is replacing the boards, but unfortunately, I don't think that they will provide this service forever. So if anyone reads this after being denied by LG, visit and you will be able to purchase any of the circuits in the set for cheaper than you will be able to from LG. I work for Tri State Module as a technician specializing in plasmas. All circuits come with a one year warranty, and I will personally repair all boards
