    The TV was purchased at K-Mart on Thanksgiving Day 2009. It is an Element ELCHS321 32" flat screen and sits on a dresser in our bedroom. The reason I stopped by Wal-Mart is because they now carry the same 32" model and I was looking at "name brand" larger sets for our living room.

    I also need a 5 digit code so the remote can be used w/Comcast cable. Right now we use the Element remote to turn the set on/off and for volume control. We use the Comcast remote to change stations.

Sorry, I need a little more detail.
I'm sure Wal-Mart sell mostly Flat Panel TVs now.
What is your TV brand and model number?
What is the problem with the TV?
Did you purchase the TV at Wal-Mart? If so, when?

    Here's a link for get the codes for the comcast remote:

    Just keep in mind that the available codes for the remote may not work for all TVs. The remotes are programed with a limited range of controlling TVs.

    I'm not sure I understand the "pixards" issue. The TV you have in your bedroom is diagonal LCD screen in 720p high-resolution. The TV has 1,000:1 Contrast Ratio, Inputs: HDMI (2), Component (2) and VGA, S-Video.

How can wal-mart control the global entetprise?

Globalization, Supply-Chain Dominance and Sweatshop Labour

A key component of Wal-Mart's strength is its dominance over suppliers. This reverses the historical dependence of retailers upon manufacturers.

Wal-Mart is a monopsony in relation to the supply chain -- that is, it is the overwhelmingly dominant market for the manufacturers' products (for many, it is the only retail outlet). It shapes the structure and location of manufacturers, forcing them into the same low-wage, low-cost system as the retailer. It dominates supplier production and logistics. The sweatshop empires of Nike and some of the clothing companies are miniscule compared to Wal-Mart.

Manufacturers have become dependent upon Wal-Mart's ability to market their goods -- and must respond to Wal-Mart's requirements. Wal-Mart stores are the biggest marketing channel for consumer products in the world and the 20 million customers who shop there on an average day represent a bigger market than could be reached by traditional mass media advertising.

Wal-Mart demands low prices, a "pull" (production of goods in response to a closely monitored system that predicts the likely customer demand) and "just-in-time" delivery of goods. Suppliers must make their production and delivery system "transparent" (which Wal-Mart is able to force on them through the use of electronic forms of data and inventory control). Wal-Mart sets up its own distribution apparatus as well, replacing wholesalers.

Wal-Mart tells suppliers how and where to produce their goods. They are forced to locate overseas, seeking sweatshop labour to meet Wal-Mart cost and delivery requirements. This, in turn, also creates new logistics and transportation systems. It's no accident that today Wal-Mart imports more goods from China than either the United Kingdom or Russia.

This has both contributed to and resulted from a new spatial division of labour: 'developed' countries lose manufacturing, but the role of low-wage retailing and distribution increases. Wal-Mart increases 'de-industrialisation' and precarious work. 'Developing' countries have sweated manufacturing, exporting to retailers in U.S. and Europe.

Wal-Mart would never have been able to develop this way without the corresponding advent of capitalist globalization and neoliberalism. The ability to move production across borders at will in response to cost signals makes this possible, as does the destruction of the socialist-oriented balanced developmental models that used to exist in China, Vietnam and partially in India.

to match Wal-Mart's labour costs and practises.

Wal-Mart's Vision

Wal-Mart helps usher in (and reflects) a particular social and political model: Low consumer prices serve a low-wage economy. As Wal-Mart CEO Lee Scott claims, "Low prices give people a raise every time they shop with us").

It portrays the giant capitalist as a champion of the "little person", reinforcing people's identity as consumers (shoppers) and cancelling out people's class identity. It claims to cater to the particular needs of women as caregivers and as the main shopper in the family (over â½ of which are single parent families in the U.S.), all the while reinforcing the crassest forms of sexism and paternalism.

Wal-Mart can't be explained without the neoliberal economic and political reforms of the 1970's and 80's. The pool of low-wage workers (many of whom are women) and the extra responsibilities facing women made Wal-Mart possible and attractive. Government deregulation of labour markets and the loss of high wage manufacturing jobs also contributed. The rise of consumer culture and Christian conservative values in the U.S. also played a role.

I just bought a mens 26 inch cranbrook from wal mart and they did not have a manul and no warrantiy.why do they do that to me ? what do i do to get a warranity ? don,t a person fill out papper work and...

If you are that mad, return it Fall-Apart, whoops I mean Wal-Mart, and take the money to your local bike shop that will support the products they sell.....The cranbrook line is manufactured by Huffy. There is a manual available in PDF format you can download from their website. You can also find Huffys contact information and you can call the customer service department and request they send you a manual and warranty paper work to fill out and send in. Bottom line, I will always recommend going to your local bike shop, they will support what they sell.

Where I can get the batteries changed and how much it will cost.

The batteries are hard to find in order to replace them, I would suggest purchasing a new one from wal-mart and swap the batteries and return the one you bought for a refund, Wal-mart will send the one your return to the factory for a repair anyhow so no harm.

Where can I get replacement brake parts for 20" next Pretty In Pink (Walmart) bicycle? Someone took the front brake cable and bent the right side lever (caliper?)

Any proper bicycle shop! They typically don't like to work on Wal Mart bikes but they can fix it.

Wal Mart buys inexpensive imports but there are probably lots of components to fix it with.

Hey handletree,

Since Durabrand is a Wal-Mart exclusive brand, you would most likely need to speak with a sales associate at your local Wal-Mart store to see if the manufacturer ever produced separate replacement parts for their products. With many private label brands, original equipment manufacturer (OEM) replacement parts are unfortunately not always made. If this is the case, you should be able to obtain a universal power cord/adaptor from a third-party specialty retailer, such as Radio Shack.

Hope this helps you out.

Go Ahead. Use Us.
