    The video player part of my TV has packed in. It is out of warranty & the supplier says it does not repair them or can replace the player.
    I know we live in a 'Throw away' society but surely I can get someone to repair it !!

    Anyone any ideas
    All comments gratefully recieved

    Don't hold your breath. With STYLE the issue today they probably make one run of the parts and just enough spares for production failures. Then they move on to the next model.

    On top of that it would cost as much as a new unit ( sold by the container load ) to ship a few parts.

    Would suggest a small Family type PC repair shop, shouldn't think too difficult to replace.

    Your warranty is not all the rights your have.

    You have statutory rights to expect a reasonable life for all manufactured goods. this should be at least 3 to 5 years for most things like TV's etc.

    I would give them a call stating your disappointment with the product and ask them for a replacement less the use you have had from the one you already have. You should be able to negotiate at least 80% of a new one if its only a year old.

    worth a try.
