Hi, I purchased a Pionner plasma/dvd second hand this week. It was brand new boxed from empire direct. However, after contacting both pioneer and empire direct who both said contact the other one like they do in the most infuriating of ways, I was told by empire direct they are not responsible. If I have a reciept from empire direct but with someone elses details is the warranty still valid. Surely some (lucky) people must get gifts of pioneer products such as DVD's etc what do they do if i breaks down? Anyone know the legal standing? Theres nothing wrong with it at the moment but I would like to know I am covered and I also want to get the Dom & Gen warranty which you need the manufacturers one year warranty for.
