Re: Philips VOIP855 upgrade fails

Hi all,

 

I called philips today and explained the situation. They asked me to reset my Philips Voip phone as already mentioned by someone in this forum before. I tried id but it didnt function. I called Philips again and explained them that resetting the phone is not the solution (at least not in my case). Now they've put me on a list with many other complaining consumers. Philips contacts me (hopefully soon) when a technician has solved the problem. When that will be is not sure. I hope it will not take months.

Re: Philips VOIP855 upgrade fails

I have the same problem in that Skype 1.10.847 won't download.

 

As regards Philips, their customer support is very poor.  Lots of failed promises, e-mails unanswered etc. etc.....

 

The Philips 8551B base station ethernet connection also cause a background buzz on my normal DECT landline, particularly when the incoming audio level is low.  Anyone else noticed this?

Re: Philips VOIP855 upgrade fails

Dear nickwilcock,

 

can I kindly ask you to open a separate thread for the audio quality of the phone. Lets not mixe topics. Some of us have send the URL of this discussion to Philips for support their cases and we should keep it to the main subject.

 

For the firmware I agree with you. I have an esacalted ticket open since a week and no news since.

 

Cheers.

Re: Philips VOIP855 upgrade fails

Having the same problem with the voip855b I also contacted the support.

No help until now.

 

What I can confirm is that the download actually succeeds! I traced the TCP packets

and could confirm that. The error then happens during the upgrade. However,

since philips didn't document how to read the logs and traces from their phone I couldn't

help further.

 

I informed philips support on my findings.

 

Let's hope philips support finds some time to look at this problem and show some respect for their customers.

Re: Philips VOIP855 upgrade fails

Update from my support case after asking for news and requesting that the faulty firmware is withdawn:

 

"At this moment, we don’t have any information about this problem.
Please have some patience.
If a response is present, you will be contacted as soon as possible."


Not very promissing.

Re: Philips VOIP855 upgrade fails

I've received a similar reply from the customer service via email.

They point me to an url (FAQ) explaining how to restore the device to factory settings when there is a problem after an upgrade.

They really consider their customers as stupid users !
