hello my street was affected by the floods of june 2012 although my house was not flooded since then our lights have flickered and tv goes off then back on 3/5 times a day and now ive noticed our combi boiler turns off then back on i had my electrics looked at and my tv looked at both are fine and was told the floods had damaged the underground electrcity cables so i contacted northern powergrid who sent a engineer out and he told me that nothing could be done until a lot more of my street phoned up to report the fault then a team would be sent out to find and fix the fault i have complained to the powergrid people that its causing my plasma tv to keep turning off and im worried that it could cause my tv to break altogether if this happens could i make a claim against the powergrid people i had a letter off them telling me that electrical equipment connected to the supply needs to be designed to withstand a power cut and they are not responsible but i say my tv is only a couple of years old and it could withstand a powercut once but if its 4/5 times a day it will damage my set in the end

hello the june 2012 floods have damaged the underground cables in my street causing my lights to flicker and my tv to turn off then back on 4/5 times aday

and the powergrid people say they cannot fix the fault until the cable breaks altogether


if this problem causes my tv to break altogether can i bring a claim against the powergrid company as they have said my tv should be able to withstand a power cut

but my tv is only 3 years old and i got it brand new and it could withstand a power cut once in a while

but if its doing it 4/5 times a day it will in the end cause alot of damage maybe breaking my tv beyond repair the powergrid company say they are not responsible

I couldn't answer your question myself, sorry, but I will suggest you get an uninterruptible power supply from your local DIY store if they have them or Ebay or Amazon (both rather more likely, to be honest) if they don't for your computer or you might easily find it's given up the ghost. Computers don't like it if the leccy goes off while they're turned on!

beat me!


your tv should be ok


but a UPS is a VERY good idea


then when you issues are sorted you could put it on your PC.


so no wasted money!



please don't hit Quote...just type we know what we said earlier..

DCA's view debtors as suckers, marks and mugs

NO DCA has ANY legal powers whatsoever on ANY debt no matter what it's Type

and they

are NOT and can NEVER  be BAILIFFS. even if a debt has been to court..

If everyone stopped blindly paying DCA's Tomorrow, their industry would collapse overnight...
