Sorry should have mentioned, this is an Amazon Warehouse deal, the TV is USED but still a good bargain.

amazon.co.uk/gp/…sed

Where does it say anything about 90 day waranty.....I have wondered about warranty these warehouse deals before but not found a definitive answer.

I got a Sharp TV from Amazon warehouse 'as new'.
It is absolutely fantastic and I saved around £200 on the normal price.
I have decided to send off the warranty to Sharp anyway and chance my luck on a 1 year guarantee.
If you dont try ....

"For anyone who missed the Sony deal a while back."

Or the £130 Toshiba

Thanks for that......I must say i still see that wording as a little ambiguous but i think it may be reasonable to think "90 days refund if defective" implies no fix from 91 days to 365 days? Surely no retailer is obliged to give refund for defective after 90 days?

If really 90 days warranty some of the warehouse deals may not be as good as they originally seem - still some crackers though.

Wouldn't you rather pay the extra £40 quid and get it new with a year 2 warranty ??

We also pay the return shipping cost if the return is a result of our error."

The 90 day warranty is a deal breaker as far as I am concerned. There are so many bargain tv's around that it's not worth the risk. It would have to be a stupendous reduction to make me consider a tv with so short a guarantee. Even then I would wonder why they had so little confidence that they only give 3 months.

aurora,

The 90 day warranty means you get a FULL refund if anything happens within those 90 days. You still have a 1 year manufacturers warranty which means if anythings happens to the TV that wasn't caused by you, then you are still covered for that 1st year.

Please explain how pre-owned tv's up to 180 days old on amazon warehouse have a 1 year warranty with manufacturer,are you saying all used tv's on warehouse are unregistered and manufactured date is ignored?

Sorry, I don't get it either. As I understand it, for the first year of a new product, the responsibility lies directly with the retailer. After that, it's down to the consumer to get on to the manufacturer.

These are sold as used, so they only have a 90 day warranty. How then could you get the manufacturer to repair/replace under the 'one years warranty'? The tv could be 6 weeks old or 6 months old, registered already, or unregistered. It sounds like it could be difficult, plus you would have to pay to send it to them, presumably.

I contacted amazon regarding the issue over the warranty. this is what they sent:

"I can confirm that the item is covered by the manufacturer's warranty if it becomes defective within 12 months.

Please note that we are unable to replace any items sold by 'warehouse deals uk' that are fulfilled by Amazon, because 'warehouse deals uk' inventory is constantly changing. However, we will be happy to issue a refund for the item."
