LG Experience A Coincidence Or Otherwise As Samsung Moves To Block SA Stolen TV by kolaaderin: 2:08pm On Aug 27
Now I know why those electronics expired prematurely. This days after 5 years, TV just pack up suddenly and if you visit their repair centres they will tell you they no longer support your old TV out of warranty,trying to persuade you to buy new one.
This I have experienced twice, there was a LG TV I bought in 2010 packed up 2015 and was told they parts is faced out they no longer support the TV that still looks pretty the same like the one they presently have in stock that year. Out of no options picked Up a new TV that year and was so furious on why I will junk a clean modern TV because they fail to support it after 3 years warrantee. It was then the LG Fuani India guy now came out to me that he will request for the part with my new receipt from the head office in Apapa, they could still have spare to help repair it since I'm a returning customer, but he can not guarantee the repair and they will call me as soon as its ready or call back in a month as it could be imported from Korea or china what ever.
Behold I got a call from them after close to a month that the TV has been repaired and I have to pay about 60k since it no longer under warranty. I was glad then because we needed a 65 inch TV for ibadan home town house, such a relieve to avoid another close to half a million naira, zoom it to Ibadan and the TV is still up running till today.
The second time was in April this year, the TV I bought in 2015 suddenly start tripping off like every 10 to 15 minutes of use, took it down to them and the same movies was playing out encouraging me to get a new one that its out of warranty. For where in this Buhari economy, I quickly scripted my own drama, called out the store manager and told him point blank that if they cannot repair this , then I m done with anything labelled LG, that my next move is to enter Samsung store and get a new TV or even get a Bruham TV way less without any remorse. Than the manager call me into his office and started telling stories on why they encourage a new one that electronic out warranty has many parts faced out and may not have the part again in store and even if they do, it may develop another issue in few weeks or months and customer will have to pay for all the repairs, that they will try to repair this as he could still source the part from the same HQ in Apapa.
That was how the TV was repaired under a week then in April.

This could all be coincidental, but with this Samsung blocking TVs out of use remotely, I believe something could be fishy. ?
Are you thinking what I'm thinking.
In those year we are growing up, our National TV was decommissioned out of use because it was no longer fashionable on the shelf not because it got damaged. That TV later used its end years in the store and was later junked because even if you dash someone the person will not even thank you for it.

This could be an eye opener as they could control the life spam of your electronics if they felt you can afford a new one based on your address location. I guess this is played out to most of us in Lekki, Ikoyi, Victoria Island residence.

Please share more light if you have experienced the same.
