ok i bought an AP hp under the persuasion of the shopkeeper and after 3 days the keypad cracked.I didnt know no warranty on that because obviously its not my fault and i did not have the warranty card as well.
I brought this case to court . My question is do i have the chance to win this case?

I'd say a waste of time...
that's why i'd never buy a AP Set due to warranty issues..
and to further reduce costs, they might put badly assembled batteries with no QC that might explode in your face...

anyway, how much cheaper can an AP get compared to the original?

i going to charge him under misleading and confusion and selling deffective good and fail to comply with verbal warranty.
though it takes time but we must stand for our right so they wont be other similiar cases .Maybe such cases will happen to any of your friends and relatives someday .

First, you don't hv the warranty card ...you will have difficulties in convincing the court. How could you conclude that it is not your fault for not getting a warranty card... you should have checked before confirming the purchase.

Next, it wouldn't cost you much to get the keypad replace....why waste your time and money in court? Just treat this as a lesson for you to learn. :cool:

if u have the receipt is consider proof of purchase.. with the receipt, and the purchase date is just 3 days before, u stand a very strong chance...

go and give it a try at the court... remember, u must know how to talk to the judge...

During 13th Oct 2007, there was a heavy down pour. Practically everywhere in USJ was flooded. My car was damage because I was caught in the flood. The main cause of the flood wasn't the rain, is the poor maintenance from MPSJ. THis is not the first time that a major flood occurred. I am voicing out on behalf of many victims, and would like to demand compensation from MPSJ. The resultant damage is that I have to spend RM2500 to fix my car. I am seriously unhappy with MPSJ, now I would like to seek assistance from anyone who can help me in this. THanks.

Hi there. I am a lawyer by profession and I must say that I am somewhat appalled after reading your post. Let me get this straight..you bought an AP handphone and without a warranty (if am not mistaken, AP sets hardly come with any warranty although some do) and your keypad cracked after 3 days and you actually brought the case to court. My question is, why in the world would you want to bring such a petty matter to court? Logistically, u could always replace cracked keypads (yes i know it's not you fault and all) but what about delving deep into your pockets for the legal fees? Are you actually willing spend a lot in court as well as paying your attorney over a "cracked keypad" instead of getting a replacement for it? Somehow penny wise, pound foolish dont you think? I know that you do have rights in this country to sue people over whatever reason possible, but I guess the culture in this country when it comes to purchasing handphones is that you may have to be prepared to face errant handphone traders who would cheat you of your last dime.

Anyway, back to the main essence of your question, my take on this is that the trader would have to replace your keypad due to it being bound by an "implied warranty of merchantability and fitness" of all products sold to its customers. Perhaps you may want to take this matter up to your local Consumers Tribunal instead of the courts. Hope this helped. Cheers :)

Cracked keypads would cost no more than $100 bucks to replaced,
but a few hrs in court would have bought you over 20 or 50 new phones instead.

Why waste the time.
