Yes because the spare parts are not compitible and as it is burned if you opened it, warranty will void please give it as the condition

Very light prints but have replaces the cartridge twice. Can't get to get darker...even when you change exposure. Less than 6 months old.


You may have a problem with the high voltage power supply. If your machine is relatively new, it may be the best thing to return it to the place where you bought it for warranty service.

How to end Compaq CQ70 misery


I have owned a CQ70 for 2 years 2 months. Before I reveal my tips, here's my experience:
On purchase:
- quick start guide doesn't even show keys and switches, how to use camera, etc
- no software or manual supplied, only useless safety guide CD
- request for info to Compaq online: they returned a form to let them know how well they had served me when they hadn't served me at all
- subsequent requests unanswered
- complaint to www2.hp.com returned a worm called HTML-script-inf
First year:
- keyboard failed after 2 months; replaced under warranty
- screen failed after just under a year; replaced under warranty
- sound regularly disappears; have to reboot
- carrying bag burst within 6 months
- SD card reader worked intermittently for a few months, then not at all
Second year:
- I accidentally discovered the touchpad disable button; it doesn't work
- battery expired after 18 months
- replacement screen started to fail after 18 months
Now:
- replacement screen failed completely after 2 years 2 months
- I get electric shocks off the left side
- it generates constant flow of "Enter" commands; keyboard, mouse, USB ports cleaned to no avail; clears on reboot for a few hours (no viruses / worms - I regularly check)
- the HDD will not start spinning on mains power; I have to remove power cord and start on battery only, then replace power cord

Tip #1: I understand from a friend who works for HP that the good components go into the HP series and all the s*** into the Compaq series, so DON'T BUY COMPAQ.
Tip #2: If you have already bought one, put it in the bin or use it for landfill
Tip #3: If you want a reliable computer that will last for years, buy a cheap and cheerful Taiwanese no-brand. We've got two - they're great.

I have a pride go chair that is only one year old. I USE IT INSIDE MY HOUSE ONLY A COUPLE OF TIMES A DAY AND CHARGE THE BATTERIES EVERY NIGHT. The off board charger has already been replaced once under...


The small batteries (17 Amp hour I believe) are notorious for lasting a year and often much less. I consistently replace the original OEM batteries supplied with this chair at the 6 month point. The manufacturer warrants these sealed gel lead acid batteries for only 6 months. Try the AGM (advanced glass mat ) batteries and you should get better life out of them. They might be more expensive at retail pricing but your insurance should pay for the better batteries in my experience. Make sure the charger replaced under warranty is the correct amperage for these small batteries otherwise the output could burn the battery plates.

Bought a 360 arcade in December and it wont read alot of new games. We think it is burning the disk instead of reading them. It also was showing a red ring of death two weeks after our purchase. We bought...


Hi,

Because the Xbox is new (less that a year old) Microsoft will repair this problem for free whether the red ring has 1,2 or 3 flashing red lights.

You will also need to tell them about the laser not reading properly.

They will no doubt send you a replacement Xbox as they are well aware of these issues and have even extended their warranty to 3 years with the 3 light red ring of death.

You may however have to wait something in the region of 6 weeks for the Xbox to be returned.

If you need anymore advice please post back.


Regards.

I purchased an SVA 2400w - BD monitor approximately 2 weeks ago, the monitor no longer powers on. I bought the item from tigerdirect.com. Can I send it in to be repaired under warranty or should I talk to...


Hi

Either!

The correct chain is thru the company you bought it from as your first point of contact, but if you get no joy there there is nothing to stop you from taking it directly to the manufacurer. Just bear in mind a few points.

*Just about all warranties are return to base - so you have to take the effort and cost to get it there thus your origional point of sale (POS) is the best place to start and sometimes they will bear the cost of the return.

*You will need your proof of purchase by way of a receipt. Credit card/bank records do not constitute a proof of purchase but will help the company you bought it off provide you with a duplicate. If you payed cash and can not remember the date all bets are off - be nice to the staff that you are talking to because they are under no obligation to provide you with a duplicate (esp cash and no date).

*Some manufacturers will acknowledge batch/serial numbers in lew of proof of purchase becuse these will demonstrate that the unit was manufactured within the warranty period.

*Finaly this is not in reference to your current situation but a verry handy FYI. When you purchase an item or especialy a system you will often find that the supplier (POS) is only offering a 12 month warranty or charge you extra for a 24 month warranty. This is as we aussies say is money for jam. This is because the manufacturers often have significantly longer warranties for components they supply.

Lets look at a system:

Intel CPU - Lifetime warranty
Kingmax RAM - lifetime warranty
Seagate HDD - 5 year warranty
Mitsubishi CDRW, DVDRW, Floppy - 2 year warranty
Most Power Supplies - 2 year warranty

Admitedly most board and adaptors are 12 months but not all.

So you come in with a failed unit, they point at their receipt with the 12 month waranty notice (actualy illegal) sell you a new one (at profit) send the failed unit off for credit or replacement and put it on the floor for sale (more profit).

Final Final Note: No warranty covers any kind of physical damage, power surges, water ingres or a unit being used for a purpose other than for which it was designed and opening or modifying a unit will also void warranty.

Hope this helps.

Flashing Standby Light (6 times every 2 second interval)


A 6 flash error indicates a problem with the backlight. Your set is less than a year old and still in warranty, so you should contact Sony and arrange for a service call to get it repaired.
