Why would you let them have it for 6 months for goodness sake?
I bought a refurbished unit from ebay long ago, went into protction mode, I sent it back and forth from hawaii to hollywood repair center a total of THREE times repeatedly. Hk paid for all the shipping, on the third time to the repair center they said they talked to hk and hk would give me a brand new one and a better model.
They mailed me a brand new upgraded model that i had for 7 years with no problems.
PS... Everytime i got it back fom the repair center it would fail in about 20 seconds...Why would they ship it back to me like that?
