Philips, in which IBM bought a controlling interest a few (2) years ago, has shut down all tech support, tech support website and all information pertaining to their repair. They are not having technical problems with their website, THEY HAVE SHUT IT DOWN.

I am passing on this information to all of those that may be considering purchasing one of their products

I, for one, would not even consider it at this point

Here is an unconfirmed addition. I was told by "NEW" (National Electronics Warranty) that Funai has purchased the Philips brand in its entirety from IBM.

Actually, I hope that it is true as Funai has been easier to work with than Philips in the last few years.

It has been confirmed - go to this website for more information.

I do know that IBM was involved a few years ago but it looks like they may not be in the mix anymore.
