    under the old SOGA you have 6 years to get redress if its a manufacturing fault

    I would try and get the shop to deal with it and refer it to Samsung who should repair it free of charge if its a design or manufacturing fault

    it may have a longer warranty from Samsung than the standard 1 year anyway

    you may have to pay for an inspection and this will be refunded if samsung take the repair on due to the SOGA

    phoned samsung yesterday,they told me set only g/teed only 12 months,they told me it might be repairable at my own cost and gave me a repair agent t/number to contact,phoned the number they told me,they could collect and estimate the cost of repair for 65 or take it to them myself and pay 25.if i went ahead with the repair the 65/25 would be deducted from the total repair bill.

    Send a email to samsung explaining what the fault is and mention the the SOGA act.

    This act applies if bought before sep30th 2015 not the consumer rights act

    The Sale of Goods Act requires all goods to be:

    as described
    of satisfactory quality and
    fit for purpose

    If they're not, the retailer is in breach of contract, giving rise to a claim under the Sale of Goods Act

    the retailer is the one responsible under the SOGA, so your first port of call is with them using SOGA and the 6 year rule

    they should liaise with Samsung and sort it out, especially if its a manufacturing defect, free of charge

    samsung are not liable under the SOGA , the retailer is (your contract is with the retailer , not Samsung)

    like a lot of uninformed people, you are going about this the wrong way

    complain to the retailer , in writing , stating that you believe it is a manufacturing defect under the SOGA and you want it sorted out free of charge (bearing in mind the fact that they will have to have it inspected first)

    sorry to hear about your woes

    I suspected this was Currys, my lad also had one from there several years ago with an inherent fault

    he phoned samsung but as you said its out of warranty

    his (and yours) contract is with Currys, not Samsung , as the retailer is liable due to the fact that your contract is with them

    Currys should have it inspected and if found to be not fit for purpose under SOGA (manufacturing defect - mot of merchantable quality) they should either repair or replace it free of charge, if you have to pay for the inspection, this will be refunded if found to fail the SOGA test

    you do not have any contract with Samsung, so they are unlikely to help you

    if Currys fail to help, then you can get it inspected and use an MCOL to recover monies and damages etc

    my lads was referred to a local samsung repair centre who repaired it free of charge after 3.5 years and the fees were refunded

    see this similar thread from a few years ago

    http://www.satpimps.co.uk/showthread...-LCD-TV-faulty

    I repeat, you contact Currys and quote the SOGA at them

    Sorry to here about your troubles M8.

    Stick with it as echo stated get hold of Currys see what they say.

    The component must have been faulty in the beginning and over time has broken down.

    A few years ago i had a Samsung tv with a fault took it to a local repairer.

    He found the the fault but was not a authorised repairer so could not get the part .

    Took it a authorised repairer cost 49.50 48.00 Labour 1.50 for the part.

    I get all my tv's for family and friends from richer sounds with 6 year free warranty

    Just to second what's been said above, your contract is with the retailer and not with Samsung - they have no legal responsibility outside the warranty period and any help they give you is a matter of goodwill. However, Curry's do have a legal responsibility under SOGA, as rasp says, and being faulty after 17 months use clearly fails the SOGA tests of satisfactory quality and being fit for purpose.

    You need to contact Curry's and point out your rights under SOGA, and that the TV is not of satisfactory quality and not fit for purpose, having failed after only 17 months. If you make it very clear to them that you are not going to let this go, they usually back down and accept their legal responsibilities. If they think they can fob you off, they will try.

    If Curry's refuse to help you, your local Trading Standards Office will point you in the right direction.

    As I said, try your local Trading Standards Office, you will probably find that they are quite familiar with Curry's. They will tell you the procedure that you will have to follow to get redress, which will probably start with a letter to the manager of the store detailing your complaint, giving them a date by which to respond.

    If you cannot get a satisfactory response, then it may end up with a trip to small claims court - don't be put off by this, it's a simple procedure these days and can all be done online.

    By the way, I was done over by Currys' predecessor Dixons many years ago and vowed never to buy a fuse from them ever again. I'm a bit older and wiser now.

    Send a email to Currys:

    Mention all the problems you are having to trying to sort this out and the costs involved.

    Also get it touch with your local trading standard office tell about the problems you having and ask for email address.

    When you send the email to currys do a Cc to trading standards

    So currys can see you have sent one to them

    So sorry Joe, seems SOGA no longer adhered to here as stated above - this is scandalous treatment of a customer by Currys, who've been around for SO long, although obviously this isn't the 'same' Currys they were years ago before takeover etc etc!
    I really feel for you Joe and wish you better luck in the future than you seem to be experiencing at the moment mate!
    Have you tried the CAB?

    complain to head office IN WRITING and quote the fact it should be of merchantable quality under SOGA and last longer than 17 months

    tell them you want it repaired or replaced or you are considering issuing a court claim under MCOL

    if it was paid for using a credit card or credit agreement, get them involved too

    BTW, I did tell you earlier that under the SOGA its up to you to pay for an inspection, which if found to be a manufacturing defect (and not your fault - like these galaxy note 7 issues) then this can be claimed back

    it is your job to prove the failure once more than 6 months have elapsed from the date of purchase, unless there is an extended warranty in place that covers it (or insurance)
