Tell your friend to buy his own Tv.
I purchased a fourty inch sony tv at best buy on August 28, 2007, and like everyone else i also purchased a four year extended warranty. On Jnauary 23, 2008, I was transporting my tv to a friends house in preparations for the super bowl. Like an idiot I allowed them to put the tv in the trunk and when we reached to destination, I plugged in all the wires and turned on the power, the freaking panel had cracked during transport. I have been calling best buy and they keep saying they cant fix it because tv panels arent covered in their extended warranty. so im stuck in a very frustrating situation. When the technician came over to my home he immidiately diagnosed it as "physical damage" and waranty wont cover it. I guess my question is "How can I make best buy or sony pay for the repairs without having to personally come out of my own pockets to pay 1,500 dollars in repairs for a television that cost 2,000 dollars." Please I need help. Anything ideas or suggestions would be great. Thanks.
