Backlight failed no replacements
I was fairly happy with this TV til the 2 year warranty ran out, then exactly one month later the backlight failed. Not completely but it went off after 5 or 10 minutes leaving sound only. Sometimes switching off and on again worked for another 10 minutes, sometimes it didn't. By this time it was a discontinued model and out of warranty. The local repair man tried many ways to fix it, including taking spares from another set which had been struck by lightning but still had a working backlight. All attempts failed. So it was scrap after 25 months. By contrast the Toshiba CRT I bought in 1992 still works great. I won't be buying any more Philips products.
