Opinions needed about a Previous Purchase

Helloe everybody

I have kind of a weird situation here so I wanted to ask around and see if I could get some advice.

I bought a 17" powerbook from Torrey Harris off this board about a month ago. It was a reasonable deal and he had everything shipped to me pretty quickly.

When it was received, there were two problems:
1. the fan is off balance, which is a $200 repair.
2. there was a warranty from compusa with the computer but the accompanying paper work was not included and without it, the warranty is useless. After I mentioned the paperwork to him, he said he would mail it out the next day. That was two weeks ago.

Now I have left about three messages about the fan problem as well as the warranty and received no response. I have been very friendly throughout the transaction and would just like these things to be taken care of.

Any ideas on what I can do? Obviously it isn't a huge amount of money ($300 or so) and I did get a reasonable deal on the computer, but it is missing something he said would be included and there is damage that he did not mention (the fan).

Any ideas or help would be greatly appreciated. I'm hoping that by posting this here that he may get back to me as well and we can work this out. He has been a member here for a while so I'm a little confused by the lack of response.

sounds like a good price

I got a few questions though...
1) how many hours of use has the camera recieved
2) has it ever needed repairs?
3) is there any remaining warranty on it?
4) is it NTSC or PAL?
5) how can I be assured that this deal will in fact go through if I send you money?

thanks

Patrick,

Sorry to hear about your dilemma. I can tell you that I have bought a couple items from Torrey and have had no issues. What I can tell you is that Torrey does a lot of hunting video and he is currently away from home shooting one at the time of this writing. Where he is (rural Kansas), there won't be much in the way of computer or cell phone coverage. So, be patient and wait a few days until he gets back home. Then we will see how everything goes.

BTW, I would be leery of paying $200 to repair a fan problem. Seems a bit steep to me. Is that Apple's quote?

We recently wrapped shooting on an independent feature (http://www.leaveittochance.info), and I am selling most of the equipment we used. All of the equipment was brand new when purchased, and used for exactly 28 shooting days. All of the equipment is undamaged and in perfect working order, unless noted. Basically, I want to sell these at ZGC/B&H price minus a 10-25% depreciaction (depending on the item). I will cut better deals for a large purchase. Feel free to ask me any questions.

Hitachi 60GB/8MB cache 2.5" HD in Ultra mini enclosure (feeds power from Firewire connection, but doesnt work with Firestore. Still a good drive)
L-208 Twin Mate - Analog Incident and Reflected Light Meter



The following will be available for sale within a month, but I will consider offers at this time:

Canon XL-2 NTSC (threading on the bottom screw is stripped, but can be fixed with a kit from a hardware store for under $10)

Thanks for the feedback.

That is apples standard pricing but it is in CDN. The part is about $80 then there is labor.

As for torrey, everything seemed to go great and communication was great, thats why im still pretty easy going about everything but he did promise me this three weeks ago and no call back in about 10 days. If he is away then that would make sense. Any idea when he may be back?

Patrick,

I don't know his exact return date, but he is also going to be at NAB at least part of next week but I would expect that communications access will be much better in Las Vegas. I will be sure to let him know that you are trying to reach him. Did you want to return the computer to him? I'm still trying to imagine what small low voltage DC fan could cost $80usd. But, as you stated, that is Apple's pricing. When you say 'out of balance' are you referring to a specific noise? I ask because it's unusual to have a fan go out of balance unless it has dust caked on one of the blades or one of the blades has been worn down by rubbing against something. I have dealt with many fan failures in my years as a technician in a wafer fab. They usually freeze up, or the bearings go bad and they squeal for a while and then freeze up. I have a brand new Imac G5 that has cooling fans even I was questioning. They seem to have some bearing noise.

We'll get it worked out one way or another.

I say the fan is off-balance because it makes a loud buzzing noise, very loud, when it rotates quickly. I had the same problem with a similiar powerbook a year back, I think it may be a design flaw with this specific model but it is definitely something that needs to be fixed. As for the price, it is apple's pricing, and I believe, it is a dual fan/heatsink piece which might be why it costs more. The whole laptop needs to be torn apart to replace it as well, at least that is what apple tech told me.

As for what I would like to do, he sold me a ocmputer that apparently had warranty and he made no mention of the fan noise. If he gets me the proper documents to transfer the warranty (something that he said he twice he would do three weeks ago, and never did) then I can have the fan fixed under the warranty without a problem. If he cannot provide the documents for the warranty, then I would like the fan fixed, which seems more than reasonable considering a two year warranty has a much higher value than simply fixing a problem that shouldn't be here in the first place. Does that make sense?

Thanks for your help.
Patrick
