  1. On August 11th we ordered a television from Tesco direct which we picked up on August 14th. It was fixed to a wall bracket and used without problem until 1st September. On 2nd September the T.V. was switched on and there was a black section to the screen. We called Tesco and they asked us to send in a photo of the screen saying that they would get back to us within 3-4 hours, they failed to do so and we rang them again to be told that they had not had time to look at our email and that they would call us back shortly after11 am the next day. By 2.30 they still hadn't cal
  2. Hi everyone! Sorry to be one of 'those' people who join in the hope of some free advice but I'm in a bit of a pickle and would really, really appreciate any advice. I'll try and keep it short, I promise. I have recently moved into a new house and as a result, my wife and I bought ourselves a new TV from AO.com. BIt cost £750. In short, it's rubbish - it's slow, it feels and looks cheap, and the optical output doesn't work which is a term which means to me: no sound out of our soundbar. I called AO this morning to arrange a return, and have been told th
  3. October 2012 we bought a Logik brand LED TV for £199.99 All was fine until April2014 when the start up failed. NORMALLY there's a red light which comes on and you press either the button on the TV or remote to switch on. The light goes blue and the TV comes on. Now it just stays red and no start up happens. We went to Currys where we bought it and they said they could send it off to their repair centre and have it checked but it would cost us £95 which would be refundable if they find a fault. They also said if we wanted, we could have it checked by
  4. Hi, My wife purchased a television on her Littlewoods account in November 2013. Was only turned on for the first time at the start of Jan. The thing has been terribly unreliable so far as it stands with constant crashing playing media. A couple of days ago the DVD transport failed as well. I did some googling and it turns out this Toshiba unit is substandard and this is a common problem. I'm a qualified electronics engineer and it's a combination of unresolvable software problems (this has the latest firmware) and low grade hardware (the transport). The software problem gets no attenti
  5. Interesting epetition just found.Personally i am sick of seeing gambling adverts on TV. Trying to draw people in.I have never really looked at it before so just had a quick look round and it is surprising how big some of these companies are.Are more people getting addicted,i do not know,perhaps you do. Everyone in the adverts is so happy but how many are being taken in,getting into difficulties,do you know. But the sheer amount of money now being spent on TV advertising must be paying off.It is everywhere you look. Just in case anyone is interested.Only got 70 signatures . http
  6. Buy as You View rejects television allegations ONE of Wales' best-known companies has defended itself in advance of a TV programme going out tonight that makes serious allegations about its sales practices. The Consumers' Association has launched an investigation into Llantrisant-based Buy as You View after the HTV current affairs series Wales This Week passed over a dossier of material it gathered for tonight's programme. One of the firm's former salesmen appears describing techniques he claims the company expects its sales staff to use, and which some customers c
  7. Except that I have, and it's paid in full. A brief background. The Licencing people - is it still the home office ? - have been supplying a receipted licence for eight years to this property following a one off payment. This is the first year it has been done totally online to save paper and a stamp. I have bank statement proof that I paid on the day and that it has not been refunded at any time since. The issue which has led to a summons is, from what I can gather, a change to the house number as a result of a postal address change, that Royal Mail have confirmed was

  9. I bought a new Panasonic Plasma TV from Currys on the 17th April this year. I didn't take out any extra cover so it is within the standard 1 year warranty. 3 weeks ago, the TV started buzzing loudly so I contact Currys who came to pick up the TV promptly. I was told I would have the TV back within a week to 10 days. They then called to tell me that the PSU was broken and that they had to order the part. I called them last week and was informed the TV was due to be delivered last Friday but it didn't arrive. After calling them that day I was told that the part had only just arrive
  10. I need some advice. Had a visit from a TV Licensing Officer last night - I signed the form (I know, I know ). I haven't had a summons yet. Needless to say, I have spent the last 12 hours reading thread after thread on this subject, and it doesn't seem to matter what I DID say to him (he lied, there are omissions, and he summarised), it only matters what is recorded on the form. So, so here is the information that appears on the visit form I signed. I should note, he DID gave me a copy of the form. + TV LICENCE Do you have a television here? - YES Do you have a TV
  11. I have accidentally damaged my TV after having it for around 10 months... i am paying extra KNOWHOW insurance monthly and was told it was covered for all accidental damages etc, it was broken on the stairs once i brought it home from university!! I sent it off to be repaired and was notified by voice mail my television hasn't been repaired and needs re-collecting. I wrote this letter: I am writing this letter as my television was sent back from PC world without being repaired or any other actions being offered; I was notified by voicemail to write a letter with more information on how the
