Funai Maker Of Magnavox Informative - Magnavox Triple Combo TV/VCR/DVD

Review by MrsV on 2008-08-11
FLORIDA -- I bought 2 of these combos at Walmart and both ran very nicely for one month. I returned to teaching up north and when I returned 6 months later neither worked. I always unplug my electrical things because of Florida thunderstorms - but I totally unplug everything when going away for any period of time. Each TV went Hmmmm when I attempted to turn them on. I got complete arrogance and indifference when I called the company on the pamphlet. I had the receipt for one but not the other. What difference - it said on the back the date of manufacture. I spent lots more time (months) on the phone, writing emails and talking to at least 8 different people. Each time I had to go through it all over again - like they weere hearing from me for the first time. Finally after I went completely ballistic, I was told they'd send a box for me to mail the TV's back to California (at my expense) That was it for me. Instead I took it to a local long time TV repairman in my area and he stated that Magnavox USED to be a very good product but since being taken over by Funai it was garbage.

It would have cost as much to repair as the TV cost. I paid $268 for each TV, so there is over $500 gone on garbage. I will never buy another of their products and you should not either. There is no such thing as customer service. Be careful, they make Emerson and Phillips too.
