  3. Sad to say I didn't get anywhere. And to my shame I let it drop. I got the repair done and the local guy gave me a complete receipt so it could be seen what I had had done. I called Trading Standards who were great with the info but that's as far as they could go with help. Well that's what I was told. Reading back what I intended to do, I am ashamed that I let it drop, but I needed more support as I was lost. All in all it was a very disappointing foray into trying to get some support for an obvious manufacturing fault. If I had taken my complaint back to Comet, I guess they would ha
  4. Hey thanks for getting back so quickly. I have used the TS site thanks anyway and looked at all the literature. Seems to me that the Act is so wooly that unless the tv actually exploded or something equally dramatic it is more or less useless. I have had an independent tv man in this morning to give me an assessment. He says it isn't what Comet would call a "major" fault. As it is the breaker I can hear ticking, preventing the tv from starting up. He reckons a small component has blown - way before it should but that it will be a small chip! As that's what they are mostly made o
  5. Hi, I need help and support! I bought on credit - and yes I know I can claim via the cc company, but why should Comet get away with it? - a 28" wide screen tv and guess what - it has stopped switching on. It just goes "tick, tick, tick" trying to switch on but it doesn't! It is my fault that I didn't sort this out when the tv did this temporarily, like for a couple of seconds, in the first year...like loads of us I put my head in the sand and hoped it would never do it again! Stupid eh? Anyway, I called Comet and asked for the tv to be repaired/replaced under European Law (I had see
  6. I think that it is entirely wrong to say that the banks hold all of the trump cards. You may think that it is a bit esoteric and a bit harsh but when people think like this (naturally enough), then I realise that the one real trump card which the banks do have is that they have the right mindset to keep on with the unlawful harvesting of people's bank accounts. In every other way, their position is a liability. The very fact that all of the banks act in the same was amounts to a restriction on a freedom of choice which in itself brings their T&Cs within the definition of "unreas
  7. Hi Guy, If you look on http://www.moneysavingexpert.com and in the section of current accounts, there is a huge, and I mean huge, thread full of people who have their own complications with banks etc. However if you plough through, you will read success stories and helpful advice and information. I got my letter from there and I did get some charges refunded straight away- so it is worth doing. It seems to us that the banks hold all the trump cards, 'cause as it is pointed out, there isn't a banking institution that offers different T&C's. So basically we are stuck. Maybe
  8. Thanks, yeh, I have looked back and we have been amazingly successful in keeping within the overdraft limit. Now we don't have a regular income though, we don't want to antagonise Barclays. Without our overdraft limit, we would be stuffed! I have been thinking about this and believe my best way forard is to write saying I accept their refund, but still reiterate that the charges are punative - just in case we need to revisit this in the future! What do you think?
  9. Hi all, I have written to Barclays and asked for a refund of charges, which in respect of many others are small - but large to us! We are swinging from having funds and not having anything! My husband is trying to work for himself - and I had a breakdown 18 months ago and am trying to get back into a frame of maind to work again! Enough of the sob story background. Just to show that each penny is important! So, we went over our overdraft limit in December last year - first time in 6 years - and lovely Barclays sent us a standard automated letter saying they were applying charges.
