  2. Amazon has emailed customers urging them to replace their charger if they have either the Amazon Fire 7" or Fire Kids Edition 7" tablet after it discovered a flaw that could lead to an electric shock. Only power adapters with the model number FABK7B are affected. You'll find the model number on the reverse of the plug just below the top pin. If you do have one of the problem plugs you don't need to replace your USB lead, just the adapter itself. How do I get a replacement?

  3. Hey all Looking for a bit of advice please. I bought a pre-owned Samsung galaxy tab 3 from GAME earlier this month (still have the box, receipt etc). After having no problems with it, the last few days it has started restarting itself randomly - this could happen after a few minutes of use or even after an hour. When it does restart itself, it turns itself off and cant be turned back on for 5mins or so. Anyway, to me it appears faulty and took it back to my local GAME store today but was told that as its an intermittent problem, I need to take it home and then video it when it ha

  5. I purchased a £400 tablet in November. And it's since developed several faults. They are. Tablet Screen is becoming unresponsive for 20-30 minute's at a time. The tablet is becoming incredibly hot. A system is popping up when the tablet is not in use (I only notice the error when i go to unlock it sometimes) The error is ''Unfortunately the UI has stopped working'' - Causing the tablet to crash. I have the receipt. Can i take this product back to Argos? And if so what can they do for me? As I'm a student this is what i use to make note's and research with whilst
  6. My Lenovo tablet developed a problem I was not sure if it was software or a hardware problem as at times my Tablet would not do the things I was telling it to do and at times the screen did some very strange things. Still under warranty I rang Lenovo who suggested a factory reset, which I did but the problem remained. They then said that it needed to go to the nearest repair centre which is in Germany. it was picked up and sent via courier. It took three days to get to the centre where it was assessed for one day and is now being processed whi
  7. I bought a Galaxy Tab S 8.4 from Curry's which went faulty. The battery percentage would fluctuate massively within seconds of unplugging the tablet as well as restarts and screen artifacts etc. The tablet was only usable tethered to a charger. As per advice from other forum members in another post, I accepted Curry's offer to repair under warranty, even though I initially requested an exchange under SOGA as it was the responsibility of the retailer to repair the goods without causing significant inconvenience to the customer. I got my tablet back today, with a n
  8. Hi, I ordered a Toshiba tablet from Staples today.I was aware they had got the price wrong. But they processed the order and took payment, with Debit Card. Now they've sent e-mail saying they've cancelled the order, because it was an obvious mistake. Question is, can they do this ?. I thought once the order was processed I was in a contract with them. This has happened before with other companies, and they have honoured the orders, even though they made the same mistake. Any Ideas ?
  9. Hello, Unsure if this is the correct forum so apologies in advance. I'll try and keep this brief. In short I opened an account in October and I've never received the free tablet offered, I've had rubbish customer service with zero new information from VM. Timeline: 18.10.2014 - Signed up for VM services through their affinity program (through my work). Broadband, phone, TV and came with a free tablet within 28 days of install as part of the deal (confirmed via e-mail). 18.11.2014 - Install (few issues such as not porting phone number and 152mbps speeds were coming in at
  10. My samsung reference number is ,,,,,,,, I bought my samsung tablet from argos in april 2013 and in january it developed in problem and i had to take it back to argos but they told me the only option i have is to call samsung which i did, i was told instructed to send it back with the self addressed envelope they sent to me few days later.

  12. Hello All I bought a HP tablet at full price £120.00 in Jan-2014 from Currys and I noticed issues with the terminals and ports right after about a month. It took me a month only because I had not started using it. I continued using it, even with all the issues ( like having to shake the terminals to fix the connection), as I was busy with my job search and new born baby. By August the battery completely died and I sent it off to Currys who sent it off for repair. They supposedly repaired the tablet but the same issue came back this week. They are now saying that it will be sent back
  13. Hi, I am not new to the CAG but new to this particular forum. As a living, I repair and maintain computers. Recently, a customer passed to me an Asus Transformer Pad tablet, which she'd purchased from Argos in December 2012. Since she bought it, she has already had it repaired twice and now it has failed a third time and won't power up. In the course of my work, I have to make judgements on whether hardware is worth repairing, given its history and the cost involved. In the case of this tablet, based on its age and the fact that it is now facing a third repair, I would
  14. I want to buy a tablet for my daughter for Xmas but am getting a bit lost with the myriad of options available. She would probably use it to chat/check emails/surf on the go plus as a portable store for course work etc to save lugging a laptop around. She currently uses Windows 7 on her lap top and has an android phone. I was planning on something around the £300 mark but having just browsed on Amazon I might need to revise that upwards. Can someone explain in plain English the relative advantages of the various operating systems and wifi/3G etc? Thanks!
  15. I have been arguing with ASUS for the past few months due to a RMA for my transformer prime. I bought the tablet secondhand so I dont have any warranty from a retailer. However the tablet was in warranty with ASUS when I sent it and ASUS agreed to pick it up and deliver to their service center in the Czech Republic free of charge. I choose to return it because of the screen starting to come loose on the right side of the tablet but I'd also had the weak wi-fi problem, so i was hoping that could be taken care of as well. Both these problems are very common and are pretty much confirmed as manu
  16. Hi Guys, was wondering if there's a way to put my mind at rest over this issue. I was bought a lovely little Android Tablet for Christmas from the High Street Retail Chain, "GAME". It has since developed a faulty whereby it wont charge up, and is effectively "dead". I'm taking it back this week for a replacement, as I'm fairly sure this isn't acceptable "wear and tear" or whatever, and even though it was bought in November the fact that it was as part of a "Christmas Promotion" the "Reasonable Time" would start form 25th December, so this has occured within 1 month. I don't have a p
