well your not trading as a business, so surely you dont have to give a refund/repair. Agree speak to ebay but I dont think that you would have to do anything. 10 months is a long time and you would not expect a guarantee from ebay!

Ebay state that Sale of Goods Act only applies business to consumer contracts

The most important piece of legislation in the UK relating to the sale of goods through eBay is the Sale of Goods Act 1979 (as amended).The act provides that wherever goods are bought they must "conform to contract". This means that items sold by eBay by business sellers to non-business consumers must be: of 'satisfactory quality'; 'as described'; and 'fit for purpose'.

Therefore, goods sold by business sellers must not be inherently faulty at the time of sale, must match any description given to them and, allowing for factors like price, they must be fit for their purpose, defect free, safe and durable.

and i think for electronics there is a time limit for return/refund (6 months?). Beyond that point the buyer has to prove that the item was inherently faulty (hence not fit for purpose) at the point of sale.

having said that, ebay itself has clearly stated that the act would only apply to business seller...i think you have a firm stand on this. If the good was new and is under warranty, i think you can just tell the buyer to contact the manufacturer directly

If you are not a business you have nothing to worry about, the item you sold was sold in a fit working state...

I would not even reply to him, if you do reply, this will make the buyer to go further thinking he can get someting else out of you....

Ignore him...

If i'm interpreting this correctly, he has to contact the manufacturer under the standard 12 month warranty. As a business seller, you have no obligation to accept faulty goods back after 6 months and the oem should accept it for repair. As a private seller, I don't even think you have a returns obligation up to that length of time. As long as the item was fit for purpose and as advertised at the time of purchase, the buyer can take a running jump.
