Dear all, After 2 1/2 years my Fujitsu PDS 4229 has gone bang ! Initially the screen would switch itself off and need switching on again and after a month or so, a bang and no more picture. My retailer would not get involved and gave me the details of Fujitsu who told me to bring it in. I did and a few days later got a letter tellling me that the shift registers had blown and that the repair would be £2483 ! Alternatively I could but a new machine at a discount, albeit when i checked the internet the discount was not attractive. What now ?? I read somewhere that I may have recourse to the retailer under the sale of goods act as a machine was only used for modest domestic use and should be expected to last more than 30 months, ecpecially when it cost £4,000. If this doesn't get a reaction then it could be the small claims court. Does anyone else have a similar experience or i am being unrealistic that a decent plasma should last for longer than this. Thanks Timmster ps wife deeply unimpressed at my use of cash !!
