DVD player Power supply problem

Hello
I purchased below mentioned Phillips DVD player from Best buy at Arlington heights store.
Philips - DVD Player with HD Upconversion DVP5990/37
Problem:
As per the specification, the power supply for the prouct is 120V. I would be taking it to India, where I need a 240V power supply. So, I cannot use the Phillips DVD player there.
How to handle this situation ?
1. Can I return it back to Best buy ?
2. Can I get the same product with power supply of 240V ?
3. Is there any converter available for 120V to 240V ?
4. Can I exchange it with another DVD player of my choice [I'll pay the extra cost]

Hey Maharatha,

In order to use this DVD player overseas, a foreign voltage converter may be all that you need to ensure that it functions properly. Many major retailers (including your local Best Buy™ store) should sell 240V to 120V voltage converters, but the brands available and product pricing may vary from store to store location.

If you would prefer to avoid looking for a voltage adaptor, remember that Best Buy™ stores do offer a 30-day return and exchange period for all DVD players we sell. Once beyond this point however, we would be unable to take the product back.

Additionally, please keep in mind that the vast majority of electronics that are sold within the United States will be designed to function using a 120V/60Hz electrical current. While some products may exist that are able to support both the U.S. and Indian electrical standards, it cannot be guaranteed that your local store will carry such an item in stock.

Hope this helps you out.

Sincerely,
Aaron

Replace the display screen


Hello acid_hussain,

Sorry to hear about your MP3 player. Unfortantely, physical damage such as a cracked screen isn't covered by most manufacturer's warranties. The unit is likely repairable but you will probably have to pay for those repairs.

To get service you should contact Phillips through their website or take the player to a local consumer electronics store that offers repair servies, such as Best Buy™.

Best Regards,
Ken

Toshiba DVD player


Hey Mueller8400,

If you purchased a Toshiba HD-DVD player from your local Best Buy™ store before February 23rd, 2008, you may be eligible to receive a $50.00 Best Buy™ gift card. Many of our customers should have already received notification of this offer and their gift cards, but if you have not yet received anything in the mail I would strongly suggest contacting us directly for further assistance. You can reach a Consumer Relations agent by calling our toll-free hotline at 888-Best-Buy (888-237-8289), and requesting to speak with an agent regarding a store policy question.

Please keep in mind however, that not all DVD players are eligible for this offer. Combination HD-DVD/Blu-ray players, computers with HD-DVD ROM drives, and upconvert DVD players do not qualify as eligible products at this time.

I would also suggest making sure that you have the receipt or order confirmation page from your purchase handy when you contact Consumer Relations, as your order number or Customer Service PIN number will be necessary to ensure that you qualify.

Hope this helps you out.

Sincerely,
Aaron
