i want to return a dvd player i bought from woolworths last septembre. its pretty rubbish and cost me £54, just wanted to know if i could exchange it for something else without much hassle? still have the receipt.

dvd player is selling for £30 on ebay, but i'd still prefer to try and get woolworths to let me exchange it for a better dvd player

Well its way beyond the 30 day exchange policy.

So unless it is actually faulty and that fault is something that is covered by the warranty, then I would say the chances of you being able to exchange it are zero to none.

Ebay's your best bet... sorry.

You would have been better to return it straight away.

How has it taken you 10 months to come to the conclusion it's rubbish :giggle:

took me far less to realise its rubbish, but i could deal with 10 months ago. now its just getting on my nerves, and i don't need a recorder anymore (its a recorder btw)



could i *make* it faulty somehow? although i bet if i returned it anyway they wuold find a fault anyway

You could always get an old DVD and accidently wedge it behind the disc tray.......:whistling:

would that be easily repairable?


looking at their websites, they no longer sell the dvd recorder (crown), so i wouldnt get a replacement which is good news

To be honest I think you'll have to accept that you've had your moneys worth out of it and that you either need to sell it on ebay, or bin it.

Prices are high in places like woolies because people like sy deliberatley break things then send them back under warranty to get a new one. You might benefit but the rest of us will suffer with higher prices - cheers.

Accidently-on-purpose :? :giggle:

I have taken something back to Woolworths which was *cough* faulty after about 5-6 months and they didn't even check it, and my Mum took back a faulty stereo which they also didn't check before refunding.

I would take it down there and tell them that most of the time it won't play the DVD's at all, they should take it back but at least if they try and be funny then you have still got a fully working player to sell on eBay.

Also, if they do be funny then make it clear that you don't mind exchanging it for something else, which they are more likely to go for than refunding if they are reluctant to do that.

Hope this helps

yeah thanks i'll try that.


angelkelly you're being a bit extreme, woolworths prices are high because they want profit.... not because people break things to get a return... and its not like i've even done it before, or that i will do it at all. + i was a victim of a rip-off, and they've taken money from me when i made a mistake on their website (i wont go into it).

i have no remorse whatsoever from doing this because these people have money and exploit us, not the other way round.

fair enough...... everyones entitled to their opinions

problem is if everyone does it, the consumer endss up paying for it - which is me, you and the rest of us on HUKD.

I just think it shows a huge amount of cheek to try it after 10 months. But thats my humble opinion - maybe others see it as fair play?........

let us know how u get on
