eBay help, desperatly need assistance

hi, been coming here for a while and hope to make some serious friends woth this post.

i just bought 2 Zune mp3 players off ebay, and one of them is fine, but the other on had bent connecting cable which has wrecked the inside connector, meaning it cant charge. i have emailed the seller, but dont know if it is there responsibility or microsofts...

i charged it with the other cable (i bought 2) so i have obviously added media and such, but when i used the 2nd cable, it pushed the pins well inside and upwards, and will now not charge...

any advice would be appreciated to the point of sexual favours as these are both xmas presents, thanks

If you paid by paypal you should be covered for sending it back as not as described. However because you have used it things get a bit iffy as they could say that you caused the damage. Try and communicate with them first and see how that goes, hopefully they'll be able to return in under warranty therefore won't mind getting it back again!

technically i did cause it hehe, i used one charger to charge/sync both players, but then used the other and it ruined the innards, hence my problem, i am contacting them now, and may even have to draw an ms paint diagram

apparently, the zune is not available over here, will this have a bearing on this as well? thanks

Dunno, personally I wouldn't say that I broke it. More it's a fault of the item. Hopefully you can then send it back. Make sure to go through paypal (assuming you used that) and use special delivery to send it back.

Well if you broke its not really the fault of the seller
But he could claim under warranty for you

how much in fees do you pay when selling an item for £220 ?

No, the cable was faulty - when plugged into the Zune it then damaged the Zune.

Oh ok

Just contact the seller and ask them to claim under warranty

Just dont mention the fact you broke and say it was faulty try contacting microsoft and if it is not covered by them, tell the seller to do it.

Hope this helps

So am I now a friend or do I get the sexual favours??? Also are you male or female?
#13
heh thanks for the help, i am male lol

the item was defective and i am going to see about them claiming on the warrenty which was not in the box, which i am guessing, should be
#14
...and now it seems they aren;t replying, although i might be just paranoid. how long should i wait before paypaling a dispute..... also, anywhere i can just get it fixed
#15
I think i am getting a refund, but he mentioned something about a 15 % restocking fee or something, what the hell is going on?
#16
If an item is faulty you shouldnt be charged a restocking fee as they cant restock a faulty item, is the seller registered as a private seller or a business?

i think they are a business... both the cable and the player were slightly brokn, making the problem worse, i know i am not to blame, but they are saying they will refund me for a 15% fee
#18
Yep definitely registered as a business, normally the distance selling regulations would come into force here but they dont cover purchases from overseas (in this case usa), if you paid via paypal I would raise a dispute now, it should find in your favour that way you will get a refund of the total item price although I think you will be unable to recover the the postage costs either way. If dino was still around he would be able to say for sure.

Just looked again and the seller is registered in USA but the item supposedly comes from hounslow so im not sure how that would play out with regards DSR?
Did the item get sent royal mail?
or from a usa shipping company?

Also have you left feedback yet?
#19
got sent royal mail special delivery, from an address in hounslow if i remember
