FS Samsung NC10 with Keyboard playing up £200.00

For sale Samsung NC10 with a keyboard fault. I used with netbook for a couple of months and then was given a better, full sized laptop, from work. So this one had been sitting in my desk draw for a few months. Got it out to lend it to a friend and when I fired it up to show it to them, a number of the keys seem to have stopped working properly. Its probably about 8 to 10 of them and it seems to be slightly intermittent (a couple of them work some times it would seem).

I haven't got a clue who to fix it or how easy it would be. I cant be bothered to muck around sending it back to Samsung, as the last time I did this with a cheap laptop it took about a month of going back and forth and the manufacturer saying certain parts weren't covered and Id have to pay this and that. I really cant be a*sed as I don't really need it.

Other than the keyboard issue the machine is in very good condition and works absolutely fine. Comes with everything you get when you buy one and I still have the box.

If you know how to fix the problem then grab yourself a bargain.

Based in South East London. As said it comes with everything you'd normally get in the box, so charger, slipcase, manuals etc.. and its boxed.

If you think £200 is a little expensive then make me a sensible offer.:thumbsup:

Of course mate, I'll make an offer once I've asked the questions I need to.

So heres a few more, :p

1) Has ANY attempt at repair been made? i.e. have ANY of the screws (except the RAM slot screw) been removed?

2) How did it develop the fault? Did i just one day stop working? Or did you spill liquid on it at some earlier date? (So I can guess if there is an internal H/W fault or the keyboard is faulty.)

thanks.

No repair attempted.

See OP. I have no idea how the fault developed. It was in a draw (at work) unused for months and when recently checked the fault was noticed. It is still in full working order (aside from the keyboard) as far as I can tell. I can still use it for all the programs on it, provided I don't need to use the affected keys. Luckly they only seem to be some of the keys on the far left and some of the number keys, so I have been able to test it with itunes, internet explorer, word, excel, BBC Iplayer. So I can honestly say I THINK it's only a keyboard or connection problem. But I honestly can't say for sure.

From the looks of it, it seems like a H/W (probably motherboard) fault. But obviously no way of being sure.

I am interested, but you will need to post it as london is to far for me.

I'm unsure of how much a reasonable offer should be - a keyboard fault is £30-40 for a genuine one. Motherboard is probably more than the price of the laptop!

I'll sleep on it and try and give you an offer tomorrow. (What would be your min. price?)

Thanks.

Id like to get reasonable close to £200, as I want to put the money towards a few things we need for our new baby, due in January. But I appreciate that your buying a bit of an unknown item, due to the fault.

OK, I've given it some thought, and heres my reasoning, motherboard or Keyboard could be faulty which means a min. charge of £30 to fix, motherboard would be more than twice (probably around £90). Used ones on ebay are regularly on for £200-£220/230.

Obviously I can't return it to you, should the motherboard be faulty. So taking this into account, I think an offer of £140 delivered would be fair, via any method you choose. POstage should be about £8-£10 using https://www.myhermes.co.uk/ or Interparcel or Collect+.

Collect plus have a special offer on where you can send upto 10KG for £3.79 including VAT, trackable online aswell.

Can you squeeze up to £160? It's just that leaves me a good £150 after postage. Wife's busting my b*lls about not sending it back to Samsung, but as I said above I've had bad experiences with returning electricals before. There's one item she wants for the little person that is £150 and if I can convince her the cash for that now is better than the hassle of sending it back, possibly them mucking me about and then selling it anyway but just for a bit more.

I don't think I can stretch to £160. Using Collect+ you will have £136 cash so just £14 short of your target. Plus I'll pay via paypal gift or bank transfer.

Our Ebay username is smallnblue it's got feedback of 104 (100% positive) and that's a mix of buying and selling.

I'm not sure about the half and half. Let me consult the boss (wife).

Dropped you a message through Ebay.

Was having a look at the couriers you sent over. Have you used Collect+ before? Not 100% sure I like the idea of handing over such an item to a corner shop, when the insurance only goes upto £40.

Not used any of them before - however they are recommended by ebay because of Royal Mails strike.

And reviews for alot of them seem OK. You could look at some of the other ones, and choose one you are more comfortable with.

Apparently Collect+ are part of HDNL (according to those reviews).

I'll have a check through the other.

Looks like I can do DHL for about £10 if I go via Parcels2Go.

Wifes is on my case about half and half, what with the delay on getting the money out of Paypal (I think she's mentally spent it already!). So if you want to do PPG I think it would have to be all in advance, but I should be able to convince her to some sort of split if it was via BT.

Via BT will be fine, better than paypal anyway.

Right, just come off the phone with the wonderful person that is my wife. If you can do £90 now and £50 on deliver then she's happy. Apparently she's decided she wants to order the stuff tomorrow and is short by £80 (and I'd need the other £10 for DHL). My tip to you is NEVER try and convince a pregnant woman of anything. You (me) will always be wrong, even if you can prove otherwise!! :?

Let me know if you are fine with this and we can switch to PM for the details exchange.
