I totally agree find out what they claim has been done to it if they claim spillage there would be residue on the keyboard membranes/ on the PCB etc

 

If they claim its been dropped there would be case damage, and even if there was you could claim she dropped it when the lead melted onto her in shock

 

Dont tip them off about your suspicions though if you ask them just get the facts no need to give them any ammo

They've already refused to answer these questions several times; which is why we're going with the LBA.

I was referring to your posts regarding using an alternative engineer to look at it by deliberately misunderstanding their letter, advising what to look for if they claim certain types of accidental damage!

Issue a court order and take them to court for the full cost of the laptop, time and interest.

 

When they get that bit of paper, they will act.

What would you like the court order to say? What are the fees for issuing a court order? Can anyone issue a court order?

 

Realist if you look at the "Letter Before Action" I wrote for Debs earlier, you'll see that we are arranging for Debs to take them to court to recover the cost of the laptop plus interest.

 

Oh, and the answers to my questions?

 

1. Nothing; we don't need a "court order". We need a Small Claims Court Claim.

2. Minimum £150 as an Order would be heard under a Part 8 Procedure, and NOT in the Small Claims Court.

3. No. Only a court can issue an Order and they would carefully consider the legal issues around a request for one.

Nobody so far has asked you how you paid for the laptop?

 

If it was paid for via a credit card and you say it cost over a £100 then you can bypass Currys and the Manu and get the credit card company to pay you back.

 

On the other hand if it was paid for via credit agreement (depending on which kind of agreement) you may be able to bother the finance company as it would be their responsibility.

 

Not sure if any of this applies to your case Debs7 but maybe worth noting for future ref.

Send them a letter before action stating 14days to respond and then do take them to court. Send a copy to head office and to the store you bought it from and note on it that you have done so (maybe trading standards as well).

 

Good Luck

hi blacksheep1979 i did sent them a letter before action on the 24th july they never bothered to even respond to the letter. Do you think I should just start small claims or send another letter to them. I have read on here sending a few letters looks better for me in the long run if it comes to taking them to a small claims court ??:|

how many letters have you sent them now? If the last letter stated they had 14 days otherwise you would start court proceedings then unless they didn't receive the letter they are just going to think you are bluffing.

I have sent them two letters first stating my complaint and asking for them for a refund or replacement gave them 14 days they waited till last day to contact me then is was by telephone call a quick 2 mins to say that all the could do was take the laptop back to work shop and get engineer to reasses it. I never sent it back because they have already examined it and did not think it would make any difference.

 

Second letter was Letter before Action think this is where I might have went a bit wrong I gave them only 7 days to reply to Letter before Action because a was so peved with them from last letter waiting till 14 working days for them to contact me. They have not bothered to reply to the letter before Action.

 

So do I sent them a letter stating all the times I have tried to contact them give them another chance to respond or start small claim ??????

 

also sent letter recorded delivery and they did receive the letter

I wonder if the health and safety executive should be informed? A laptop that gets so hot as to melt seems rather a dangerous item to sell. What if you had left it on overnight?

Bye the way,

 

There was a recall notice in yesterdays mail, about Dell laptops being re-called due to faulty power supplies having been fitted. These power supplies had been manufactured in various far east countries. I wonder if Toshiba had fitted the same power supplies to their laptops?

Hi NIk

 

i seen that on bbc news yesterday, I was thinking of maybe phoning up Currys and stating this fact to them, that is does actual occur. They will probably just say that its a differnet company but ike you say they are all supplied from the far east countries. What you think a wee call to them to let them know I am still on there tail ???

Sorry is that you live in Scotland or are a student etc there? If you live perm in Scotland its the sheriffs court that you'll go to (I think) look at the guides for taking banks to court in Scotland - they should give you some guidance.
