    new TV/DVD broke and got it from... WOOLIES :(

    Been meaning to post bout this for wee while now. I bought my wee lad a TV/DVD player combi - Disney Pirates of the Carribbean one from Woolies a month or so before his Birthday in November for his birthday. However a couple of weeks ago the DVD player went faulty.

    How annoyed am I! Took it to a TV repair shop who said it'd be about £60-70 to repair it, but it only cost me that much in the first place.

    The DVD player just wont start up... it whirrrssss..... pause. whirrrrs.... pause. Sometimes it does start up and half way through loading the DVD up to the menu stage it'll stop, pause, whirrrrr.... So it never ever gets to the menu stage.

    My wee lad is gutted. I'm probably going to have to just buy another DVD player and attatch it with the scart I think, cause he loves the pirate TV.

    Damn credit crunch!

    Can you not contact the manufacturer?

    Try getting a laser cleaning disc. It might just be the laser has some dust on it and cannot read the discs.

    It doesn't matter if you got it from Woolies,did you register it with whoever made it,it will be guaranteed for at least a year.

    [FONT="Century Gothic"][COLOR="Magenta"]contact manufactor they will have a gaurantee, have you[/COLOR][/FONT] got receipt?

    I don't have a receipt for it now... I'm terrible at things like that. Don't keep pay slips or bank statements either... and I'm a born hoarder I hoard everything else!!! (silly I know).

    I think I used a visa debit card... think I'll have to hunt down my confirmation email from Woolies.

    Will buy a DVD cleaning disc. Dunno where from I'll have to have a hunt online (I don't drive so really can't get to the shops).

    thanks for the info guys... I just thought it was a lost cause with them being no more!

    Must be over £100 for a chargeback. Just google the manufacturer and contact them.

    that chargeback site in the link states...

    "And unlike your credit card, which imposes a minimum spend of £100, you can claim back any amount of money."

    Dunno what the manufacturer is... hoping it's somewhere on the product I'm just going to look. Probably won't be able to do anything though as I don't have a receipt. Just emails from Woolies saying it's been bought etc.

    I know i'm stating the obvious,but in the future make sure you register any new products so they are guaranteed,most of them will let you do it online,so its not a hassle.

    Look for something like: svp.co.uk/pro…128
    You can get them from Poundland if you can get someone to go for you.

    I don't know how to register stuff online? only stuff I ever did for that was websites that point you to a website to do it at the time of purchase - for my fridge/freezer from Tesco

    my poundland is pretty new and in a small building they don't have this sorta thing in ours bah! OR any of the good deals that come on here for there.

    I've emailed the manufacturer anyway see what they have to say for themselves.... (not holding out hope there)

    the emails should be dated?
