  1. Not sure if this has been mentioned yet but just been on the Universal Job match website and saw this : Universal Jobmatch will be replaced by the Find a job service on 14 May 2018.

  2. I took my car took to the garage to get the master cylinder replaced on the clutch and when I got phoned to say that may car was ready I was surprised to see the clutch pedal low down like near the floor. And when I went back in to speak to the service manager I got told that Vauxhall only wanted to replace the clutch pipe and elbow..i asked why wasn't the master cylinder not replaced as that's what I got told was wrong with the car..he says Vauxhall wanted to see how that worked first.. so I drove away from the garage as never says anything about if it was safe to drive..so anyways 10 mins wh
  3. Hi, thought I'd see if I could find any useful advice here. I'm very anxious so any good pointers much appreciated! I'll keep it as brief as I can: I'm a one-man IT dept for a medium size organisation - permanent position that has risen in seniority over 12 years. My line manager is proposing a reorganisation that will end my current role and replace it with an extremely similar role on a 2-year fixed term contract. Redundancy is an option, and I am unsure as yet if 'they' are keen for me to take it, or take the new role. I want to stay on, and I believe the new role is precisely my
  4. Greetings Ladies and Gents how often should Landis and Gyr 5235A / Ampy Automation 5235A Electric meter be replaced? The meter is the cheapest no frills anti-reverse digital electric meter they cost around £20 when they were introduced. I read somewhere ??? that it should be replaced every 10 years, however when I spoke to my current energy provider they said 2031 (25 years), that Centrica note above the meter was the provider when the meter was installed.

  5. Hello, please can anyone help? I had three identical items for sale on ebay. Sold one and posted it off. Got a message saying it had been damaged on the way. I sent a replacement straight away and said once that arrives and is all fine I would arrange for the original damaged item to be collected. I thought that was better than asking for the damaged one to be sent back first. I got a message to say the second item has arrived and is fine. Ever since then I have been messaging asking when would be convenient to collect the damaged item, but no repl
  6. I had a smashed iPhone 6 screen for about 6 months because I couldn't afford to get it fixed and it still worked fine. However last week it began showing sign of giving up (touchscreen not working properly), so I gave in and took it to a local shop that does repairs and also sells things like cases and accessories (called Fone Care, not sure if it's a chain...) Firstly they refused to knock £5 off to price-match a different shop down the road, which is fair enough and obviously within their rights.... But we were just about to walk out, when she said she could do it now and it would only
  7. When I joined my company 3 years back, I had a Samsung Galaxy S3. My boss wanted to get me a work phone and said it would be better for me to use the work phone as a personal phone as well so I only needed one phone. He bought a Samsung Galaxy S5 for me to use as a work phone. Few days later, a work friend of ours had his phone stolen, my boss pretty much took my old phone and gave it to him to use (and later keep), pretty much assuming that since he replaced my personal phone, that that phone then belonged to him. So now I only have a work phone with a shared number. I want to
  8. I purchased a 5 year old car on Friday- which should have had on board Sat Nav. Dealer said Sat Nav was broken, so replaced the radio with franchise CD player. However, on collecting car- now find that although the radio/CD works, there is no Bluetooth hands free, no clock, no steering wheel controls and no code supplied for replacement (bog standard cheap!) radio. The advert stated all of the above but the replacement unit is obviously incompatible with the standard spec radio which gives all the other functions. Taking car back tomorrow, but any advice on how
  9. Hello there and thanks in advance for any help you can give. I have recently bought a Samsung 7000 series TV from JL and have persistently had lip synch issues. I have contacted Samsung and followed all their advice to no avail. I've now been back to JL to ask for a replacement TV and been told that there are non in stock, but 160 expected soon. However, they also say that they won't reserve one for me until they're in stock, and, the expected delivery may already all be sold. My question is, shouldn't existing, defective equipment, be replaced before any new orders are f
  10. Hi, we spent 430 on a lay z spa Monaco hot tub. We bought it in may and it was delivered 25 th June. We've since had to replace the whole pump thrift lay z spa warranty and now it's gone again. We're feed up as we go outside to use it and it's not working. We have spent loads looking after it, correct chemicals cleaning etc. Can we take back to argos. Want money back Thanks
  11. Industry NewsOther USB C Danny Young The next generation of USB connectors is on its way, and with it follows great news, it’s reversible! USB ‘Type C’ will be the next step from USB 3.0 and is set to write those annoying wrongs previous USB incarnations have had. The new type-C USB jacks will be small enough for mobile phones and micro devices with a fully reversible cable. This means, even if the cable is end-to-end or upside down, the connector will still attach to your device. This handy adaptation will mercifully put an end to
  12. Hi guys, Wanted some advice on a major issue I've had with my Focus RS MK2 whereby it overheated recently due to a broken water pump (confirmed by the Ford dealership) after inspecting the engine, they have advised that the cylinder heads and engine block are warped which is more than likely going to require a new engine/rebuild. The car is currently under warranty but I have a nasty feeling that Ford will push back and say this was due to driver neglegence even though I pulled over within 50 metres of seeing the warning light. A bit of background history on this car,
  13. Really hoping someone can help here First of all, I have 2 contracts with Vodafone which are due for renewal around the 7th November 2013. My phone is a Samsung s2 my son’s is a HTC desire. I have had loads of problems with these two phones which I took into my local Vodafone shop for repair on the first instance on 05/07/13. I’ll start off with the HTC, my son’s phone. This phone has not been great from the start and was unusable for an amount of time before my own phone (galaxy s2) needed repair which gave me the push to take his down for repair too.
  14. Hi there, Firstly, I'd like to apologise if I've posted in the wrong section, am hoping this is the right place! I have a situation at my current workplace. I took on a 7 month contract in March on the basis that it was "definitely" going to go on to a permanent contract. The MD's wife is on maternity leave and it was understood from the beginning that she would be coming back part time. Everything was going smoothly and I have had very good feedback from our clients and my boss. I had a review a few months ago about whether they had decided I was going to be kept on permanently
  15. Hello, A company bought a friends credit card account that was in default with Barclaycard. The new company have marked the Barclaycard account as satisfied (but still shows default on history) and placed a fresh default with the same information under the company's name. It seems this is harming their credit file, as now It looks like two defaults are listed on their file. Should they do this? From what I have been reading, and the information commissioners guidance, the company should take over the old default, or have the original company maintain it, rather than post a new
  16. just been reading this has anyone else heard this is going to be happening as its the first ive heard of it This report looks at the likely impact of these changes on severely disabled adults who live on their own (or with a partner who is also disabled or just with dependent children) and don’t have a carer. All severely disabled adults face extra costs However those who live on their own also have additional costs not faced by those with a partner. In the current system this group are eligible for the Severe Disability Premium (SDP), currently worth about £58 a week, but u
  17. Hi There, My sister has an iPhone 4S which was Replaced by Apple within the warranty period (Albeit only just). She was told that it would have 90 days warranty on the replacement handset and was sent on her way very happy indeed. exactly 110 days later the replaced iPhone 4S completely died. Won't turn on, no output from the screen so back to the Apple Store to see what could be done. As the iPhone was 20 days out of warranty, they wanted £129 out of a 16 year old girl to replace the handset. Pretty poor show if you ask me, but their rules were rules! I am aware of the Sal
  18. I bought a 5-site pond-fogger/mister from Maplins at the end of March 2011. The item is used about 4 times a week, for a few hours at a time. By september it had decided to stop working, so (as I keep all my receipts) I took it back to the store, where a very nice lady replaced the whole thing, without fuss. This last weekend, the replacement has now died. As I was just over the 1-year warranty (On the original unit) I didn't hold out much hope, & rang the store. After a little gentle persuasion, the store manager agreed to replace it again, although he said the "3rd unit" would be provid
  19. I was brought a new phone from Amazon for Christmas. The phone was broken so I sent it back for a replacement. However, the company are not sending me out a replacement. They are saying it would be quicker to give me a refund. However, the company are still selling the same product on this listing. However, it is for more money than we paid. So it appears they don't want to send this replacement because they are now getting more money for this product. Do I have any rights in this situation? Thanks
  20. Hi I had my vehicle serviced by a garage. It is, or was fitted with a K&N air filter - which is a lifetime filter which just needs to be cleaned. It's supposed to give increased performance & mpg. I checked it today and found it to be replaced by a throw away filter so I have a £48 filter missing and was no doubt charged for the inferior part they replaced it with. K&N filters have been around for along time and are clearly marked up, so I assume a young inexperienced mechanic/trainee was doing the service and hadn't been told to look out for them. I've email
  21. Hi I bought a new "Original Birth" front Anti Roll Bar from an online company at the end of January 2012, It's just snapped, I have spoken to the supplier and they said that I would have to pay for a new one and they would collect the broken one and send it back to the Manufacturer. My Mechanic has said that it shouldn't break and the suppliers are also surprised that it's broken. I said that I would want to claim the money back for the parts and the labour. The suppliers have told me that I may get my money back for the faulty part but it's unlikely they would not pay for the labour. I have p
  22. Microsoft is overhauling its free webmail service, dropping the Hotmail brand it has used since acquiring the product in 1998, and adopting the name Outlook.com. The revamped service will help sort messages as they arrive and allow users to make internet calls on Skype. It said the move would help tackle the problem of "cluttered" inboxes. The action may also be designed to win over users of Google's rival Gmail service. Microsoft is offering the service in a "preview" mode for the time being and has not announced an official release date.
  23. My laptop fried so I claimed my house contents insurance with the Halifax. It wasn't a hugely expensive laptop and there was a £200 excess but I went ahead as I couldn't afford to replace at the time. The claim was accepted and they sent me out a new laptop. It was £399.97 and exceeds the specs of my old machine which was a few years old. On getting it set up today I've realised I really don't like it. It's not the performance of it but partly the aesthetics and partly quality. I hate the style of it (black glossy fingerprint magnet) and it also has a dull screen image. I don't know whet
