    • Is it unusual for them to have all the documents they have provided so far?
    • That still leaves it unclear if: a) you “made a mistake” and accidentally bought the wrong ticket (only to Three Bridges), or b) You had a “moment of very poor judgement” and deliberately bought a ‘short ticket’ It can’t be both.   Climb off the fence you are sitting on, it’ll give you splinters............ at the moment you are trying to hedge your bets but it is obvious that is what you are doing, and as a result: why should they believe the rest (expressions of regret, won’t do it again, sole income earner who will lose their job, etc.)
    • Email and call your local councillor, their details should be on Google.  Just explain everything to them and they will have the bailiffs off your back in short order.   Do it now, and this could be resolved by tomorrow.  
    • Your latest ramblings make no sense in relation to the issue (which is whether a person hearing an SD can question the maker as to its truthfulness and reject the declaration if they are not satisfied as such).     It's not within 21 days of the hearing it's within 21 days of learning of the conviction of which they were unaware. I don't know what it is you are reading or are referring to but there is no "debtor" involved in an SD that is made to have a conviction set aside. When an SD is heard in court the only officers involved are the court's Legal Advisor and the Magistrates themselves.   I’ve just been looking back at the original post which started all this off to ensure I wasn’t going mad. I’m pleased to say I don’t think I am. Instead I am of the opinion that you did not properly grasp what originally happened to the OP and compounded that by providing incorrect, misleading and confusing advice whilst plucking bits of irrelevant legislation from thin air randomly when you commented. Here’s a few of your quotes and my comments for you to consider.     The OP said no such thing. She said she had moved three years earlier. For some reason unknown, her change of address was not recorded by the DVLA. She said she was happy to accept the speeding allegation. This indicated she was driving (a fact she confirmed absolutely soon afterwards). Nowhere did she ever say she was not the owner of the vehicle at the relevant time.         So, from advice to plead Not Guilty to advice to plead Guilty inside two hours, with no new or additional information provided. Still you mention somebody else being the driver.         What is an “out of time statement” and where and when was one ever mentioned?     Then from the OP:       Your response:       The cause of any confusion was your comments. She said from the outset that she did not live at her old address when the offence was committed (in fact she went to some lengths to explain that was why she did not receive the court papers). Nowhere did she suggest she was not the driver nor that she could not or would not disclose who was.     No it isn’t. A Statutory Declaration voids the original conviction as if it never happened. Section 142 of the Magistrates’ Court Act is not involved with the resurrection of proceedings following an SD. That Section grants the Magistrates powers to re-open cases to rectify mistakes, etc. There has been no mistake here, the Magistrates will not be called upon to re-open the case and could not prevent it being revisited even if they wanted to.   Then we set off into the intricacies of the Statutory Declaration process which is covered above.   I’m not surprised the OP in this particular case became confused. Her matter is straightforward enough (for those who know the law and the process). In summary: She moved; She thought the DVLA had her vehicle registered at her new address but they hadn’t; Her vehicle (with her driving) was detected speeding; She (unsurprisingly) did not receive the notification of that offence or the request for driver’s details; She obviously didn’t reply to that request, she was prosecuted for it, convicted in her absence and without her knowledge.   Happens every day and simple to deal with.   Unfortunately, not when you became involved it isn't. Firstly you grasped the wrong end of the stick by assuming she was not the owner and/or the driver. You advised her to plead Not Guilty on that basis. Then, when you had grasped some idea of what had really happened you suggested she plead guilty to the S172 offence purely on the basis she had moved and the speeding information was sent to her old address. Very poor advice. Then you scared her witless by incorrectly suggesting there was a chance her SD would be rejected if it was thought her declaration may be untruthful. There also followed discussions about the six month time limit for prosecutions and the 21 day limit for SDs to be accepted unconditionally (both totally irrelevant).   I don’t suppose you will accept any of these criticisms but whether you do or not you clearly caused the OP considerable confusion and probably distress. My comments are not based on something I've heard on the net or on barroom (sic) knowledge. They are based on my knowledge of the law and of Magistrates' Court procedures.  It's obvious you will pay no heed to me so when I see any such clearly misleading information provided to an OP by you in this section in future I will simply report it to the site's administrators.

Hi all!

 

Want to get my details in line ready for tomorrow when I am going to take my 20 month old HP Pavilion notebook back to PC World to see if I can get this power jack fixed.

 

The port (on the laptop itself) has been loose, and now come apart, and the internal plastic spacer keeping all the pins straight has fallen out.

This has been a problem since May 2017 but I was awaiting a response from HP which never came.

 

 

It does still charge however the pins are highly likely to get bent now the spacer is not present.

It's normally used on a table with no stress on the jack itself,

and there is no damage present to the surrounding plastics or the charger/cable.

 

I have spoken to KnowHow however they say that they will charge an up front fee of £60 to only assess the port before deciding if a manufacturing defect is present and therefore replace FOC.

 

Can PC World charge this upfront?

I am able and willing to replace the jack myself if they were to get the part.

 

 

Most of them on eBay appear to be £20+ and HP's own spares site state that they do not stock it.

Every laptop i have owned has had power jack issues. If you search online and on youtube it is a very common issue. They are just poorly built,

 

Beyond the first 6 months, if you are going back to the retailer, it is up to you to prove the manufacturing fault. So yes Currys can charge you a fee for an assessment report. This probably won't evidence any fault and they will quote you for a repair. It might just be cheaper to go to local computer repair shop to get the fault fixed. If they find that the laptop had a manufacturing fault perhaps they can confirm this in writing taking pictures and making a brief report about what they found. Then write to Currys head office asking to be refunded for the repair.


We could do with some help from you.

i wouldn't stress it too much

 

im guessing its one of the 15- or 17- models

 

blue tipped power supply?

 

if so its VERY common and they should fix it easily enough, one thing you need to check however is to look down the center of the power supply, theres a single metal pin in the center of this, if its bent off to one side you need to get that fixed as well or it will break a new socket

 

apart from that it IS possible to replace it yourself, parts wise you need to look for a DC Harness not socket, its on a wire and just unplugs from the mainboard - be careful however as HP like to hide screws under covers and rubbers

 

PC world if i remember rightly DO refund the £60 if they decide its manufacturing fault just check its booked correctly as there is also a paid for repair which is £60 fee as well - make sure its booked for a sales of goods repair

HP can be surprisingly helpful if you phone them on almost any number that IS NOT their customer care line. Try head office exchange and ask to be put through to someone in sale/technical. They should then tell you whether to return to store and give you a ref No or provide you with a collection/delivery label via email.

An update for everyone

 

I found a suitable jack/cable (for a slightly different model, but fits) online from China for £1.30.

 

Fitted and works perfectly.

 

Not worth the hassle to send it off! All I can say is, wow technology has moved on in the past 5-7 years - so much empty space inside now!
