  1. Well done. Glad you got sorted.I finally got my TV back just before the bank holidays. Samsung authorised repairer quoted over £350 parts and labour (replacement of Main PCB and Front Panel PCB), but Currys still maintained they wanted to repair despite the cost. I had expected them to write it off. Still waiting for my engineers report costs back from Currys, but that will be another battle
  2. It would be useful if the model number of the TV is mentioned in forum posts. I have a LE40B620 that is waiting repair at the moment. The Samsung authorised repairer has admitted that this model TV is known to be a sufferer of 'Capacitor Plague', although my problems look to be more severe. If the model numbers are mentioned and other members are having problems with the same model, then some trends might be established.
  3. Ah well, hopefully it will go smoothly and my suspicious mind was all an unecessary diversion to the resolve. Incidently, which items did you delete on the form? out of; Warranty Void, Physical Damage and/or Out of Warranty
  4. Totally agree with you and the law, Conniff. But, its the difference between simply enforcing your rights vs. enforcing your rights with the retailer waving an admission of physical damage in front of you and claiming they are no longer responsible. Sure, with some effort it can be shown to be invalid or mis-represented, but it still forms a bump in the road. A bit of a fore-gone conclusion now as the OP has already signed and returned the form, so no need to procrastinate. We all will just try to pick up the pieces if it goes pear shape later on.
  5. This might be cat amongst the pigeons, but; A deposit is just a promisery - a commitment to demonstrate you are intending to complete the contract in full. As opposed to a part payment - where part ownership comes into consideration. Its years since I dealt with this. Back then I had some back up references as I used the difference in terms to get monies refunded where a car dealer claimed I had placed a non-returnable deposit whilst I claimed part payment and agreed to receive money back once he had sold the car as part of an amicable agreement. He quickly saw there was no poin
  6. Ah MET, the reason I came to CAG in the first place. As you seem to be aware, Just ignore them from now on and keep their junk mail as evidence (or just for a chuckle later on in life). They should go away eventually.
  7. Have they returned your deposit already? If so, then you will most likely find that is as far as you will get. The items are no longer made, so by putting you back in the position you were, they would be seen as fulfilling their responsibility. A complaint to head office can't hurt, though I would not expect uch more than a sorry back.
  8. The problem as I see it, is that if you sign the form stating warranty is not valid due to Physical Damage, then Scan can claim you have acknowledged/admitted that the card has been subjected to Physical Damage from misuse (or use beyond its design parameters). This is in opposition to the true problem that the card has become damaged due to a pre-existing fault/latent defect that was present when you purchased it. Now if this was restricted to the warranty only, then all well and good, but what happens when you try to enforce your stat. rights and they present the admission of phys
  9. I can't say I would agree this is the correct route. My reasoning would be that you are not concerned with the approach to how Scan correct the problem. Your contract is with Scan not the manufacturer. I take real issue with the wording of the form they sent you, particularly; This is implying that Scan have no responsibility in the matter other than offering you a goodwill gesture of sending the item for you. They want you to sign the form in agreement - whether the form is enforcable or not, if you sign they will use it as leverage that you were in agreement with them at the time
  10. Okay, first a link to the thread I mentioned above (CP Plus Charge Notice getting heavy handed - please help - FightBack Forums). And another I came across looking for the link, which is exactly as per your issue (CP Plus ticket in Wokingham train station car park - FightBack Forums). No point in going into further detail, these two PePiPoo threads say it all.
  11. mmakov, do a search on PePiPoo for South West Trains CP Plus. There is a threrad on there that almost mimics your situation and makes very interesting reading. Blade Runner is the OP. Net result would appear to be in agreement with patdavies and others on here that the ticket is unenforcable. I have a write up to post, but it is on my home PC. I'll post it later but it basically covers what is already in the PePiPoo thread.
  12. I take it this is only in relation to Blue Badges and not private parking in general. God forbid it is the latter.
  13. Only problem with this approach is that it only insures you for Royal Mail loosing your parcel in transit. Not for proper delivery. When you get a report of non-receipt by your (honest) buyers and go to claim and find the parcel was received and signed for - Royal Mail have tangible proof of delivery to the correct address. It is then up to you to prove that the signatory was not the intended receiver and the parcel has been mis-delivered - which will probably fall on deaf ears by Royal Mail anyway. In the scenario as described by Minkiesmum, this is a definite possibilty. At le
  14. Not to highjack this thread, but is there a time limit on lost baggage claims?
