Question about Samsung E340 Cellular Phone

Open Question

E340 supposed problem

Good day. My daughter has had a Samsung E-340 for 13 months (as luck would have it, one month outside of warranty). The phone developed a slight problem, it froze occasionally while my daughter was creating a text message. We took it into the agent who immediately sent it away for "repair". We received the phone back with a R340.00 bill and we were informed that it was a software problem and the software needed to be reloaded - rubbish. They cleared out the phone of all text messages as well as phone numbers - I thought it was good practice to inform the customer before this was done. We switched on the phone, it froze immediately, and continued to do so on a more regular basis. We returned the phone for a second time, this time we were informed that it was not the phone but the network - rubbish. If it was indeed the network, all the phones in Pretoria would have been sitting in the agents office. The phone was in an even worse condition, the screen flashed at will and just switched off on it own accord, we returned it again to the agent and he himself acknowledged that is was in a much worse state that the previous visit(s). The phone was returned once again, this time the phone didn't even switch on, the agent tried a new battery and still no joy. The excuse this time was that this particular phone does deteriorate gradually and then die completely. I find this hard to believe, especially after only 13 months. This is not a good advert or indeed support for what I think is a good product, until of course our recent experience. Is there anyone out there who can help us with this rather painful problem. I repeat, not only is the publicity bad but the actual support does not exist. Kind regard

    I had my phone in for "software upgrade" as it froze most of the time when I was in sms mode.

    Now my phone does not switch on at all.

    Also outside warrenty.

    What now Samsung?, What now?.

SOURCE: Samsung Cell phone refusing text messages

Th D900 has a maximum number of text messages that it can store. It's 200 messages plus whatever can fit on the sim card. It doesn't matter if you have other memory free, this limit still applies. Try deleting some text messages from your inbox, or your sent items, if you tend to save your sent messages. Also, check the drafts box.
If you are talking about a different phone model (A900??) I don't know if this applies.

SOURCE: Samsung SCH-u740 problem - front screen stays on and speakerphone switches automatically

I would recommend a hard-reset of the device. Keep in mind that this will delete all of your contact information and customized settings.

On a side note, be careful not to accidentally press the speaker-phone button on the right side of the phone during a call. I used to have this phone and I would sometimes do it without even realizing it.

SOURCE: samsung sch-870 won't send or receive text messages

ok the only thing i could say is to turn off the phone and remove the battery for about half a minute this would fix the problem hopefully. or try calling your service provider. I have telus and when that happened to me with the same phone i called them and they reset my network. they might have a problem doing this, so the easiest way to get your network reset for your phone is to tell them that you forgot your voicemail pin. when they reset your voicemail password they reset your network at the same time. hopefully this is answer your questions and get your sons cell working again.

Samsung Galaxy S2 S95G will not charge


Usually this lack of charging is a faulty mini usb connector inside the SII phone or maybe the mini USB plug on the end of charger cable. If you have a friend with a working SII use their phone to verify your battery or try their good battery in your phone. This will confirm it' s a charging / battery issue.
Not sure if you did this:A workaround for a faulty mini USB conn. in the SII would to be to buy a new battery and an external battery charger with battery holder stand. Charge batteries in the stand and change the charged batteries over into the Galaxy SII as needed.

I have a samsung microwave that has not been used just a few months,no longer than app.seven. it is completely risted out and metal paint is dropping into the bottom everytime i use is. is it still good...


Speaking an a retired Samsung Main Repairs Agent, it is not covered by warranty, as the paint peels if left wet after cooking/steaming etc.
If you get into the habit of leaving the door open until it cools down each time, it would have given you good service.

Pink screen


A discolored screen, such as pink in your case, implies either:

 

1.) The motherboard and/or video processor of the TV has malfunctioned. 

 

2.) Your input device is rendering the pink screen, such as a video game console for example.

 

If you determine that your input is not the reason for the pink screen then you need to contact Samsung for a warranty replacement.

 

Samsung offers a 1 year / 12 month standard warranty, and some of higher model TV's have a 3yr / 36 month warranty.

You can find out your warranty information by going to http://www.samsung.com/us/support/#

Also if you have purchased the TV in the last 30 days you can purchase a Squaretrade warranty which will refund the price of the television if they can not fix it. www.squaretrade.com

I hope this helps!  Thank you for using FixYa!

Samsung UN55B8500 Powers OFF/ON While Watching Program Material (HDMI Inputs). I've had this T.V. for about 8 months now, and it is a great TV, except for occasionally powering off/on- this is accompanied...


The capacitors on the power board that are domed on the top would be the first thing to look for. If you can solder ,it is an fix. If it is under warranty though you could void the warranty if you tamper with it.Bad capacitor on this newer model is unusual. If caps are ok I would Replace the main board.

I Bought a Bravo series 300 Washer and Dryer 18 months ago. They came with a 1 yr. manufacture warranty The first month I had problems with the dryer which was covered under warranty.. It was inconvenient...


hi,
usually most areas have a USED appliance store. usually these guys will have a bunch of old fridges and stoves around outside the store. Our town has three or four of them. you may have to ask around but these guys usually have parts for cheap. and they will sometimes make house calls. try googling used appliances in your area. they may also set you up with a cheaper washer with a METAL tub.

good luck

Kenmore Top mount fridge is leaking water outside of unit. Unit is new purchased in May 2010. just started problem about a month ago. happens about every other day - 2 days.


Good day,
First check to make sure that the water line from the house supply is connected and tight.
After that, if it is not the problem (which it sounds as it is not) then since you have a total warranty on the machine for the first 12 months.
I would leave it alone and leave any evidence if you can.
Call Sears for a warranty service call. They would have to correct the problem at no cost to you..

Got a Samsung DVD VR355 its 6 months old. It just stopped working, there is power getting to the transformer but the player is not lighting up the front or allowing me to open the dvd draw. Any ideas...


Did you actually open up the player to test the transformer? If not were there any lightning storms recently or and brownouts? If not do you still have the receipt because you may be able to call SAMSUNG up and get the Recorder fixed under warranty for free. I looked at the warranty sheet for this device and it doesn't seem to mention a specific time frame so im not sure if its 1 year warranty or 90 days.
The following is the link to the warranty information about the player. It says you had to have filled out the registration card for warranty but I think you should try calling them anyway.
GOOD LUCK!
Hope this helps!

well that means you have liquid damage and you have voided your warranty on your device. Your only option is to buy a new phone or take advantage of insurance if you have it!

Can't make pictures-lens in not opening


I tried contacting Casio, and I was SOOOO impressed with their customer service! The camera was still under warranty - only five months old. I live outside of the US, and althought Casio would not return the camera to an address outside the US, I lucked out in having Casio return ship to someone I would see in the near future. I shipped it Fed-Ex (~ $60) at my charge; they replaced the complete lens assembly and shipped it to the US address AT NO CHARGE within 10 days!! The camera has worked perfectly ever since (4 months now).

All I can say is "Thank you, Casio! You have completely restored my faith in product warranty departments!"
