Beware of TV repair man

Post by chanB » Fri, 05 Aug 2005 7:31 pm

Dear All,

I was just conned by a TV repair man( name:Robin Go_, hp. 91711_1_). find his service in ST classified. one month ago, my SONY TV was blackout, with continues clicking noise. He came did some tunning and told me he changed 2 components. I check the PCB there isn't any fresh soldering, but I paid him S$105 because the TV was working. Told me warrenty is 1 month.

After 1month and 4 days, the same problem happened. He told me warrenty over, transport S$20. component replacement will be charged accordingly. I told him it's the same problem, i'll pay for transport but not the component. He reply it could be other components and going to charge me again. I F'ed :twisted: him. I'm getting a new TV set.

Are you kidding or do you seriously believe he installed new components designed to work for 1 month and 4 days, and be sure to get extra business?
Come on... To me it seems quite normal practice to give you a few weeks warranty after a repair, 2 weeks is already good. How can this guy know about all the other components and commit himself for more than a few weeks??

And if the same problem happened again to your TV, it means that it's not the components which were replaced that are faulty. It looks like something else is going wrong and makes these components damaged.

Let me ask you if it's only a TV problem? Looks like you don't like that guy for other reasons...

If you need a reliable TV repairman, let me know. Me and my relatives had been giving him jobs for years. :)

Yah, it certainly sounds like something else is causing the thing he replaced to be spoiled. May need to change the something else also.
