Today I will share my experience with Philips service.

I got my Philips LCDtv PHF5609 abt 1 month back.When I watched closely(that time, but didnt disclose before)I found one spot around 0.5 X 1 Cm(W X H) along the Rt border in centre,It was partial dead pixel which use to change with dark colour,but not with light colours.It was not bothering watching.
I called service centre within 10days of purchase & register complaint.
Next day Philips person came & confirmed that its manufacturing defect.He took photos from mobile & said need to talk with seniors.He assured that I can either get panal replaced OR new TV.

I got call after 5 days & he visited again ,opened new LCD set & copied panalNo.There were only 2 brds inside-
1.Powersuppy
2.Video brd (both arouns 12 inX 12in)

He said if panal changing is possible,they will send van which will carry the set,change the panal & bring back within 2 days.They will take my TV to service centre only after new panal is available. I need to wait for 15days.

Within that period I did review the LCD which was otherwise fine-

After 21 days no call,so I phoned to know the status & to my surprise new set was arrieved for me & will be delivered after 2 days.
They came with new LCD set(monday 7/12/09) & when I checked the box ,It was HDready model(5409?) & not mine.I had confirmed with centre that its same.They called centre & found that just bcos of similar packing & my set left @ centre.

At last ,Today (10/12/09) I got my tv replaced to Brand new piece.
I checked the viewing hours which was showing 000016 which was not 16hrs as I checked again after 20 min which showed 000018.That time must be factory testing hrs.

So it took around 1month but I got better service with practically 2 calls only.
current philips after sales can be with-

Pros: Fast response, possible action, compliting the task
Cons: Did not call even after set came to service centre & took 1wk after
that to deliver, Brought wrong set initially:eek:hyeah:

Again the issue is such a spot developed in the first place . And again apparant apathy of service. Unless you called they were not responding . Also the first delivery shows their attitude. they may be seeing if you are taking delivary of inferior model and will be happy!

Too much patience! My HP lap had an issue and they were not able to locate the board - I banged the service ,mailed from service to CEO and made a ruckus.
Reard - I got temp lap to use and post 5 weeks got upgraded board ( from Single Core processo to Dual Core) and meanwhile service centre created issues in hard drive ( it was special 1.8" 40 GB drive) so it was replaced with 80 GB one!!!

THAT IS WHY I SAY HP ROCKS IN SERVICE! And in this duration I was called by service managers and was kept posted ( Like -Sir your part in docks,your part custom clared,now arrived in vashi,now we are testing it ETC!!!:eek:hyeah::eek:hyeah:)

We need to have better service expectation and must screw happiness of service centres!

I have sent one of my Samson EQ to Pro Musicals of Chennai for service from Kolkata. After receiving the EQ when I called them to ask what the problem was and how long will it take,they answered " WE DONT KNOW" :rolleyes::sad::eek:

It was really frustrating , they are still servicing my EQ........:D

Service is one of the most horrible experience one can have in our Country.....
