this is his message :

XXX,

Early this morning I tried switching on the laptop and it did not switch on. Now i've reported the fault with Dell and they've insured me that it will be repaired within the week. It is due to a faulty power supply unit within the laptop.
Now I can offer you you're money back. Is that ok? Apologies for the problems.

Well it says 'used' in the condition box, but then 'This is a brand new in packaging' in the description.

Sounds dodgy to me, why would he have tried turning it on when he new it should all be in working order anyway?

I think hes lying because of the code, message him and ebay. Also watch out if he relists it
As the initial transaction has been cancelled I see no reason why the code should not still be valid. It can't do any harm to send a message to E-Bay to verify.

Wow........They can be 100% specific of what the problem is over the phone at Dell now. :lol:

Could be a multitude of things why it won't power on..........he's just taking the mick. Probably didn't get what he wanted for it.
Why would the seller be bothered about the use of a code? I'm assuming it was issued by ebay? Then ebay pay the difference when the code's used??
why do you all think the seller cancelled because of the 10% code? he doesn't lose the money, ebay and paypal take the hit

The 10% code is between the buyer, E-Bay and Paypal. It is not a 10% reduction to the seller, he would not know that a code has been used. He would still get the full amount that the item sold for. Perhaps he is being honest and the laptop power supply has failed. At the end of the day the buyer has lost nothing, I think they would have a lot more to complain about if he had shipped the laptop and it didn't work.

Delete the item number off your post :thumbsup:

I would just wait for the laptop to be repaired.
think about it he's a new seller prob trying to scam our friend but this being high value ebay are holding the funds untill feedback is given thats why he's had no choice but to refund
It states band new dell so why would it be faulty dell are built to spec normally unless you deal with nohelp pcworld

think yourself lucky the new paypal system is working else you;ll be £500 down
