    • I have no confidence left in the surveyor or his abilities.   Surveys are not what they once were.   Walking away £1k down is better than months of stress followed by losing another £1k on top. Cutting my losses and walking away is wise advice that I am going to accept and get on with my life. In this case it has paid for me to ask
    • Hello,   I purchased an LG Oled E6 television in 2017, and over the last few months it has developed a green area across the central area of the screen covering maybe 70% of the screen, which is impossible to unsee.  It means that all faces and pictures have a green look to them as you are viewing, and you can see some lesser examples of this by a simple google image search for 'green lg oled'.   I had a 5 year warranty as standard with John Lewis, and so reported this to them, and in due course they sent out an engineer.   The engineer took a few pictures and said he had seen this a fair bit with LG televesions and it would need a new panel, so he would send a report to JL   A week or so later he had sent the report back to John Lewis, stating that my particular model being one of the last 3D panels, could not be repaired, as LG do not make them anymore, and ultimately that the fault is down to 'customer misuse' by causing this 'screen burn'.   I was flabbergasted that I am somehow to blame for this by merely watching the television, which for one, has a built in screen saver to avoid burn in, and secondly, being someone who diligently used the lowest brightness settings and cleared the panel noise (using the in built tool) regularly to try and avoid such an occurence.   John Lewis are now completely absolving themselves from the issue, and having spoken to LG, they acknowledged by email that "...based on the nature of the issue that the unit has developed, the outcome is a Panel fault issue which has been confirmed by our technicians after a review of the images you provided...", and ultimately that I can pay them a reduced cost to repair it if i wish.   I don't see why I should have to pay for this at all though, especially when looking online there are numerous threads on forums and even a youtube review talking about how this particular generation of OLED's from LG have had the same common problem.  JL do not wish to contribute to the cost of repair, nor replace the TV as they are hanging onto this report which says that it is screen burn caused by me, and LG don't want to officially acknowledge it as a known issue with 2016 and 2017 panels for obvious reasons.   Please can someone help explain my options?  I didn't pay by credit card, and I have never been through the small claims process before, but I am at a loss for what steps to take next.   Thank you  
    • It should be, of course. There should also be mention of it on the information page.
    • Perhaps, but is a person who promises local goodies on behalf of a arch liar who wont, and who supports that liar - worth anything? So (despite your comment on 'dishonesty) did you vote for arch liar Johnsons' party then conniff? or was Farages your choice if available?   I voted for a local people who I believed would do the local job best - and a significant part of that is that they aint Corbynisto-ssas' or Johnsona'rse or Farages'phincters ...whos basic values commonly do not present as mine - and whos loyalties commonly 'lie elsewhere   (that leads to a point - has Derbyshires Police commissioner been voted out for overseeing Derbyshire cops going out mob handed to oppress and enforce NOT covid NOT law)

    • Hi @BankFodder
      Sorry for only updating you now, but after your guidance with submitting the claim it was pretty straight forward and I didn't want to unnecessarily waste your time. Especially with this guide you wrote here, so many thanks for that
      So I issued the claim on day 15 and they requested more time to respond.
      They took until the last day to respond and denied the claim, unsurprisingly saying my contract was with Packlink and not with them.
       
      I opted for mediation, and it played out very similarly to other people's experiences.
       
      In the first call I outlined my case, and I referred to the Contracts (Rights of Third Parties) Act 1999 as the reason to why I do in fact have a contract with them. 
       
      In the second call the mediator came back with an offer of the full amount of the phone and postage £146.93, but not the court costs. I said I was not willing to accept this and the mediator came across as a bit irritated that I would not accept this and said I should be flexible. I insisted that the law was on my side and I was willing to take them to court. The mediator went back to Hermes with what I said.
       
      In the third call the mediator said that they would offer the full amount. However, he said that Hermes still thought that I should have taken the case against Packlink instead, and that they would try to recover the court costs themselves from Packlink.
       
      To be fair to them, if Packlink wasn't based in Spain I would've made the claim against them instead. But since they are overseas and the law lets me take action against Hermes directly, it's the best way of trying to recover the money.
       
      So this is a great win. Thank you so much for your help and all of the resources available on this site. It has helped me so much especially as someone who does not know anything about making money claims.
       
      Many thanks, stay safe and have a good Christmas!

]we purchased a hotpoint fridge freezer from comet in southend-on-sea on 2/12/2011,

 

after it was delivered we let it stand for a couple of days to settle before switching it on, all seemed ok,

lights came on freezer was working away - we did a major shop to fill it ready for xmas.

 

We had to shop early as we get paid at the end of the month,

it was not until 11/01/12 that we realised the fridge was not working,

the food was going off,

we tried over the next few days to change the settings, but nothing,

the fridge was not working,

 

we called for repair on 11/01/12, and was booked in for 19/01/12,

my partner took a day off, and they did not show,

they cancelled the call due to not having the parts,

even though they have not yet seen the fridge they new apparently what was wrong.

 

After more contact, i was then told the parts would be in on 25/01,

and they would be in touch for fitting,

 

we phoned on 26/01 only to be told the parts were not in and would be arriving on 03/02,

 

Then we had a phone call to say the engineer would call on 9/02,

another day off,

at 15.20 that day we got a text apologising for the fact that they were not coming...

 

we contacted citizens advice, and have been to the store for a refund,

but the manager refused to see us and told his member of staff to tell us we had to wait for a repair,

we now have another repair date for 17/02,

 

comet have cost us more in lost wages and food than what we paid for the item,

well we are going to go all the way to court if we have to,

 

i thought i would tell comet head office first but you have to pay extortionate phone charges for the privalage

and we were informed of a ten minute wait in a queue,

 

i will post them a copy of my complaint,

i have given them fourteen days to respond,

 

comet are abismal at customer service in my opinion

 

Wish i had gone to waitrose/john lewis as i normally do,

never get problems there

This is shocking Customer Service dickybird and totally unacceptable .

I certainly hope "COMET Response" reads your post .

 

Once again another example of the "Crystal Ball fault diagnosis" by COMET and as yet your Fridge Freezer has still not been examined by their engineer.

 

Failed appointments and no parts after nearly 5 weeks since you first reported the fault with your new appliance.

 

Follow dx`s advice and hope for the best you get sorted out ASAP and keep us informed .

Regards

Well, at this moment, comet have refused to do anything,

it would appear that the service team have given a different account of what has transpired,

they said that they tried to contact us to cancel the first appointment,

but then later stated that the parts were not in????

then they said on the second attempt to repair, that the engineer could not make contact and gain entry to the house to effect a repair,

but we have a text from them saying, sorry, we are working on your repair will be in touch shortly,

 

so another day of no pay......,

depending on who you speak to...,

we are supposed to be waiting first for a thermostat...,

then a fan and sponge(yes that,s right)

and now a motor,

part of the problem is that the repair side of comet do not put down on their conversation the real truth and customer services believe their own staff,

 

i have had the reply i expected within the fourteen days i gave them, and it is not to my satisfaction, so i will get court papers tomorrow,

 

i also contacted head office and told them of these events and have not had a reply as yet from them,

although they did say it could take three days to investigate, so things could change,

 

i have, it would appear, the green light from trading standards so lets see what happens,,,,

 

thanks to you out there for your support

well......, i have been typing up all the notes and looking at the way to go forward,.. and it seems that when i send them notification of intent to sue.., that i should also, try, and agree an out of court settlement first, as this would look good to the judge on the day.., i initially told them that i reject the item, and was not accepting any more time wasting, and wanted a refund..., well as you have read already, this was refused, as was an exchange, as was compensation..so..., where could i find middle ground..., i had had a missed call from the directors office, so, i returned the call, and they said that they wanted to come out again and repair the unit, and it was not reasonable for me not to allow this.., i said, i understand that if we want to resolve this issue, then we both need to find a settlement that would suit us both and seem fair, as a result i said" ok"..., if i allow you a third booked call , and you are unable to repair the unit, or if you dont turn up to repair it, then i want you to agree to a full refund, in writing..., she said she could not authorise that, so she had to disagree at that point..., the call was ended...and i emailed them an outline of the conversation for my records...a short time ago i recieved another call from the lady, who said that she was not able to get any agreement on this offer, but stated.. that as the engineer had not actually seen the fridge then he could not be sure of whether or not he would be carrying the right parts, and if he could not repair it he would phone his office while still on my premises and ask if the fridge could be written off based on his findings... and it would be up to the service manager to decide on a yes or no...,i said this was totally unreasonable.....( you might remember that they had stated that they did not need to see the item because they new what was wrong and the delay was in finding a part)... well, i am now satisfied i have given them opportunity in abundance, so i will bring my paperwork up to date and post it off, it might take a week but it,s being sorted

sorry if my post is a little confusing......

 

i have now collected papers and booklets from the court office, and will fill those in......

.i have kept trading standards up to speed..

.it would seem as i understand it....

that it is correct procedure to outline the case to comet as to why i believe i have a fair claim for a refund,

 

to that end i have kept copies of everything that they have sent me and copies of everything i sent them,

 

if i put this all this together in order as a statement of facts then i am hopefull that comet may settle out of court..

.if not....

then these papers would also be given to the judge as the reason i am bringing this case,

it will also show that i have given comet opportunity on several occassions to resolve the issue...

which can only strengthen my case....

 

or am i wrong

If you have not yet sent them the 7 day lba I would suggest you do so.

 

It does not need to be lengthy.

 

Along the lines of

 

"I refer to previous protracted correspondence and your failures to....blah blah. Under SOGA I now require [ENTER WHAT YOU WANT]. Should you not comply then I will issue in court without further reference to yourselves."

 

In that letter also tell them that you want to know what parts of SOGA they feel do not apply to them and why.

Hi dicky

 

How did you pay? If you payed by Credit Card or Visa Debt, you could have contacted your Card Provider to ask to do a Chargeback. It might still be worth contacting them, explaining fully whats happened including the 'legal action'.

I recieved an offer to replace the unit today, But no mention of the costs i have now incurred as a direct result of their diabolical customer service, Who in their right mind would want another item from comet? when i have been treated with such contempt, I am going to continue my court action unless they refund and compensate me for at least part of my losses

The letter we recieved from comet with an apology attatched, And offer to exchange the unit was, it appears, sent from a different department within comet, it was nice to get a long awaited apology, However, The directors office knew nothing of this offer to us, and from their tone on the phone were more than embarrassed as i think they were going to take this case all the way, Any way i am still rejecting the offer as it has not included compensation. but i believe this letter from them proves my case anyway...i just wish they would treat me as a customer and not the enemy..watch this spot
