No Refund

  jaraba 17:37 28 Jul 2010

I purchase a ps2 female to usb male connector to try & make use of an old keyboard.
This was explained to the assitant who actually picked up the item & handed it to me.
It didn't work so I took it back for a refund & although I had the receipt & the packaging was undamagd & didn't look as if it had been opened I was refused a refund on the gounds that I had use it.
I emailed the company & I am still getting the same answer but no answer to my question as how an item can be found incomapatble without open it & using it.
Doubt if I am going to get my money back but just thought I would advise everyone that if they get in s similar situation tell the shop the item didn't work becaus that is the 1st thing they asked me & foolishly, I now realise, I told them the truth that the item was incompatable.

to the retailer, and you were sold something with the assurance that it would do the job, and it doesn't, you are entitled to a full refund.

You can't tell if something isn't going to work unless you try it, and the retailer may not refuse a refund on the basis that you've opened the pack.

How much did you pay for the item. I purchased a ps2 male to usb female for about 98p not all that long ago.

In fact I purchased two, so as to keep one as a spare.

Try CPC or Ebuyer for prices, before you go elsewhere.

I bought the opposite to you.
PS2 Female to USB Male.
Cost a lot more than yours because I bought it in a shop. Didn't even think of looking online as I was in the shop browsing & asked if they had something to do what I wanted.

which retailer was this,

Sorry don't want to say as I have had good service from them up to now.
You probably realise what one bad review/comment can do.

Told them this in the shop & twice via email to their customer services & they still say its on the receipt that they don't refund if the package is opened. Which it is.

The retailer appears to be wrong.What if it was a computer,you set it up and find it doesent work.The retailer cant say the package has been opened,and wash their hands of it.

In what way was the ps2 female to usb male connector incompatible?

  tullie 20:51 29 Jul 2010

Good question,maybe the keyboard is duff.

the law is quite clear - if you explained that you wanted a component for s specific purpose, and the shop sold you something that doesn't work, you are entitled to receive a full refund.

Tell the shop what I have said.
