because with sharp you will need it and good luck dealing with them.as for me i bought a 42 inch sharp aquos in dec 2013 and in november 2013 the screen went so replaced under warranty but the replacement did not come until the end of jan 2014,the replacement tv broke as it keeps cutting off as soon as you turn it on,so all in all i have had 2 of these aquos tv's and not one works so who is going to give me my money back for it ans no one.
sharp tv paid £500 for and inside 18 months both broken and sharp will do nothing as it is out of waranty for me now.never ever again will i buy sharp or even look at them waste of time and waste of money.

EU Rules came into force in 2010 which says any electrical item purchased within the EU is covered for 2 years. I bought a DVD Recorder from Amazon and it broke down about 10 days after the first 12 months. I emailed Amazon and they said they could do nothing as it was "out of warranty", but then I read on here about the new Rules in 2010, so I emailed them back with the link to the information and about 10 minutes later they said they could refund me no problem and sent me a Prepaid Returns Label! :)

cheers for this but i have used this with the shop and with sharp directly and both are not moving on there answer of no.
the shop say they are not responsible as the tv was replaced so it is not the item they sold me and sharp are saying there is a 1 year warranty only and that is it.

How can it upscale to 1080i when the resolution is 768p.

Answer, it can't.

Nonsense, this has nothing to do with it. This refers to the functionality of the product as it was sold and in the very first stages of use. The EU law covers up to 2 years after when the retailer is falling back on their specific cover period. You can still quote this and in a lot of cases, ignorance will win the day.

Q. I've heard that under European Union (EU) law I'm allowed a two year minimum guarantee on goods. Is that correct? 
A. EU Directive 1999/44/EC states that all European Union member states must allow consumers to make a claim for faulty or misdescribed goods under their consumer rights for a minimum of two years. English law already allows you to make a claim for up to six years from the date you bought the goods and for up to five years in Scotland. Therefore if you buy any goods from any other EU member state, you can assume that you can make a claim for faulty or misdescribed goods for at least two years after. See the 'Buying goods - your rights' leaflet for more information.

More information here to what actually happened. Point number 2.

Fair enough. I wasnt trolling, i was interested enough to make a comment in the hope id get more specific info back. The truth is legal aspects aside, i know several retailers that have backed down from the EU ruling anyway. Lack of information i guess.

The EU law covers up to 2 years after when the retailer is falling back on their specific cover period. You can still quote this and in a lot of cases, ignorance will win the day.

It isn't nonsense, he's right. The directive was never transposed as the SOGA exceeds the intended purpose of the directive.

Having said that, the article does nail one aspect of it that might be of use if you ever got to a court room (which is pretty unlikely), you could argue that you had no had reason to prove there was an inherent fault after six months (as the burden shifts from seller to buyer at the 6 month mark).

The reason I say it's unlikely is because it would be cheaper, easier and take far less time to simply get an independent report stating the item failed and wasn't dropped in the bath/thrown against a wall/whatever (you wouldn't be covered by the directive in any of these cases either).

Also, if you even managed to get a national retailer into a small claims court room they are very unlikely to contest the case (2 reasons; first their lawyers charge more per hour than your 32" TV costs! Second, they would be concerned about "floodgates"; losing a court case can spark a wave of similar cases, especially if widely reported or a case which sets a precedent). So the chances are you would get a default judgement before you even got a chance to put forward your "court must apply EU law even/especially when a country has failed to implement a directive" argument.

The reason it hasn't been applied IS because the Sale of Goods Act (or in some cases; the Distance Selling Regulations or the Consumer Credit Act; the three main consumer protection acts) will have caught everything passing through a court room before anyone ever had to try this.
