    • Why don't you actually READ the sellers advert before talking tosh. The seller's advert offers an optional  12 months breakdown warranty cover,  warranties generally do not cover anything related to wear and tear and especially everything on an old banger will be excluded.  OP should have studied the terms of any such warranty before purchasing it, if he did purchase it.     Also, the sellers advert at NO point states the car has NO faults. READ the sellers advert before jumping to huge conclusions.

    • This is a bit of a lengthy one but I’ll summerise best as possible.
       
      THIS IS HOW THE PHONECALL WENT 
       
      I was contacted by future comms by phone, they stated that they could beat any phone contract I have , (I am a limited company but just myself that needs a business phone and I am the only worker) 
      I told future comms my deal, £110 per month with a phone and a virtual landline, they confirmed that they could beat that, £90 per month with a phone , virtual landline  they also confirmed they would pay Vodafone (previous provider) the termination fee. As I am in business, naturally I was open to making a deal. So we proceeded. 
      Future comms then revealed that the contract would be with PLAN.COM and the airtime would be provided by 02, I instantly told them that this would break the deal as I have poor 02 signal in the house where I live as my partner is on 02 and constantly complaining about bad signal
      the salesman assured me he would send a signal booster box out with the phone so I would have perfect signal.
      so far so good.....
      i then explained this is the only mobile phone I use for business and pleasure, so therefore I didn’t want any disconnection time in the slightest between the switchover from Vodafone to 02
      the salesman then confirmed that the existing phone would only be disconnected once the new phone was switched on.
      so far so good....

Hi

 

I have this problem with both HP and their repair centre in Newark.

 

I have a HP pavilion DV7 17" screen, Windows 7 64-bit SP1, 2.00GHz, 8.0GB RAM, Intel HD Graphics 3000 Laptop that is about 3 years old.

 

Recently I started having this problem with the Laptop.

 

Once I shut the Laptop down or put it to sleep or hibernation mode, and try to start it up again, it simply will not boot back up at all. I have to leave it and come back to it after four to seven hours and then it will boot up normally.

 

If after 20 minutes of the Laptop being on and in use, you hibernate, shut down or put the laptop in to sleep mode then it will not power back on till after 7 to 8 hours later. Nothing you do will get it back on sooner. There is power to the Laptop in the meantime.

 

This is increasingly difficult for me as it means once the Laptop is powered on and in use, I have to leave it powered on all day till night time when I have to shut it down and come back to it in the morning and power it back on again.

 

I took this to a local IT repair person on the streets and they were not able to resolve the problem and mentioned I have to send it to HP to fix, I took the Laptop back to PC world where I bought it three years earlier and (knowhow) charged me £50 just to send it up to their repair centre in newark, the Laptop is no longer in warranty by the way.

 

When the repair centre started working on it, they called me to confirm that the system board of the Laptop needs to be changed to resolve this issue, I had no choice but accept for this to be changed at a further cost of £95.

 

This was done, sent back to the pc world (knowhow) branch I took it in to in the first place. I checked the pc, powered it on at the shop, it came on as normal so I signed for it and took it home.

 

A day later, I discovered that I still had the problem with the Laptop not booting up after a few minutes of it being in use.

 

I tried to boot it up and the laptop will not boot up, I was basically back to square one with all the cost I have incurred so far.

 

After 5 days or so, I took the Laptop back to (knowhow) and advised them the Laptop with all the repairs so far, has not resolved the issue and also one of the keyboard buttons was faulty which I mentioned to them as well, the Laptop was taken off me and sent back to the HP repair centre in newark and came back almost two weeks later with the keyboard changed and looking new. Please note that this second for free as under the terms of the first repair, I have a guarantee of three months which covered me for the second time around.

 

Anyway, after a few days later, the power problem was still there, once the Laptop is either hibernated, shutdown or put in to sleep mode after it has been on for up to half an hour or more, the unit will remain shut down and cannot be powered on by the power button of the Laptop till after 5- 8 hours later then the power button will now responds to power on the Laptop.

 

This is now my third time of having this same issue and need to know what options are available to me as this has cost me both time and money so far.

 

It seems to me there is a heating mechanism or component that heats up once the Laptop is powered on and only when this cools down is when the power buttons becomes effective again.

 

The Laptop is useable when on and working but becomes such a pain once you close the lid or power it off, which means it has to be left on all day till night time when I want to go to bed then I can shut it down boot it up in the morning if need be with no problems but have to leave it powered on all day again.

 

This is not acceptable to me. When using the Laptop and there is any software or programme that needs to be updated on the laptop, I cannot reboot or shut it down as it becomes unusable till several hours later.

 

I hope I made myself clear as to the problem I am having.

 

Summary:

Laptop once shutdown does not boot up till several hours later.

 

Laptop out of original warranty when bought but not old as only about three years old, windows 7.

 

Been to HP knowhow repairs centre twice and components changed at my cost but still problem above persists.

 

When in Hibernate or Sleep mode, the standby light keeps flashing but the power on button not responsive to the unit.

 

Seems there is overheating - but Fan is fine - causing this issue that has to cool down first for normal boot up.

 

There is a three months warranty in place from the first Job done by the HP repair Centre which covers me for three months.

 

Monetary cost to me so far is £145 pounds and five weeks loss of use as it takes two to three weeks get back from knowhow.

 

Thanks and hope to see the responses I get from you all savvy people.

Hi sharemaster

 

You purchased it 3 years ago, how did you pay for it? i.e. Credit Card

 

You shouldn't of paid anything for the repairs if there was a manufacturing fault.

 

The SOGA 1974 would apply, it's your statutory rights.

Just a note though, I do not have the receipts of purchase any more though but dealing with the same pc world I bought it from and do believe they should have the details of the purchase on their own records. Question, will they be willing to print me out a free receipt of proof of purchase if I am getting legal with them? I sure would not if I were in their shoes!! I paid for the Laptop in CASH too which I now can see was a mistake, should have used my debit card at least.

 

I will slowly start getting some legal letters and emails ready and if there are any more pointers on this, please feel free to mention them to me.

 

Very Many Thanks Indeed to you and all the others that have responded to me so far.biggrin.pngrollin.gif

 

Thanks for your advice anyway.

Hi Sharemaster

 

Debit Card wouldn't assist under the circumstances. You've got two issues, to seek a replacement and a refund of the monies paid for the repair.

 

How did you pay for the repair? Credit Card or Debit Card? When exactly did you make the payment?

 

Once you've answered those questions, you can consider writing to the CEO.

Hi there,

 

 

The payment for the repair was made with a Debit Card and this was about 4 - 5 weeks ago.

 

 

Thanks once more.

Contact your Card Provider, ask to carry out a Chargeback. Follow up by amending the template, send it Recorded Delivery.

 

They might play 'hardball', send any evidence you have, i.e. emails, reports etc.

 

Explain that you should have had to pay for the repair in the first place, as you have Statutory Rights under the SOGA 1974.
