*Author of original report: Best Buys refuses to exchange a damaged LCD TV
I transported the unit in an Excursion SUV and followed the handling care instructions provided in the package. I was also helped by my 24 years old son. At home, after taking the product out of its package, I discovered that the LCD screen was damaged and proceeded to call the store customer service department to explain what had happened and they asked me to come back to the store with the product. The product was taken back the same day, within 2 hours of its purchase.
Back in the store, the manager in charge called to inspect the returned product, alleged that the damages were due some sort of impact and that took place when the product was in my care, since Best Buy had not delivered the product, it was my responsibility to take the damaged TV back home. The manager refused to exchange, refund my purchase, or offer any remedy. Best Buy did not open a consumer case nor filed my complaint in any way. They simply sent me home with the damaged product to file a complaint against Sharp Corp, USA.
I called Sharp Corp, USA and file a case with their customer service group. Sharp suggested that this is a common issue with LCD TV and that I should take it back to the store that sold me the product. I also called and wrote to Best Buy Corporation, to file a complaint. Until now, I have not received any relief or remedy from Best Buy.
All I can say is, that I have been a fool for spending over $7000.00 in appliances & electronics in this store without a single return, that I took the utmost care of the product and am prepared to testify that this product was damaged in its box prior to the sale, that I feel outraged that a Fortune 100 corporation will get away accusing its customers of wrong doing and lying, and for refusing to accept responsibility for the sales of damaged goods and honor the return and exchange policy.
