All used items supplied by Crystal TV Spare Parts have a 45 day warranty period from the date the goods were delivered. This warranty does not affect your statutory rights as a consumer. If goods develop a defect during the 90 day warranty period, you should follow the Returns procedure.
Our aim is that the part will arrive in full working order, if for any reason the part is Dead on Arrival or has a fault that we missed, we will guarantee to replace the board or refund in full if a replacement can't be found. Beyond this initial guarantee, we can't make any further guarantee whatsoever due to the complexity of some devices used within Plasma and LCD televisions. If the diagnosis of the fault is incorrect, fitting a part may result in that part being instantly destroyed or failing within days by what caused the original board to fail.
Please note that the warranty does not apply to damaged or faulty items sold for spares or repairs. The warranty also does not cover you for any defects in the goods arising from fair wear and tear, wilful damage, accident, negligence by you or any third party, poor installation, use otherwise than in accordance with its intended use, failure to follow the manufacturer's or supplier's instructions, or any alteration or repair carried out without Crystal TV Spare Parts LTD's prior written approval.

When returning items that fall under The Consumer Contracts (Information, Cancellation and Additional Charges) Regulations 2013, we request that you take reasonable care of the item while it is in your possession. In this case we suggest that you use our original postage boxes as we deem those to be adequate protection for the item.
Where returning items outside the remit of The Consumer Contracts (Information, Cancellation and Additional Charges) Regulations 2013, we insist on items being sent in accordance with our returns policy, the part must arrive back to us in the condition it was sent in. Failure to adhere to these guidelines may see your return refused and no monies returned.

10. Governing Law and Jurisdiction
These terms of sale and the supply of the goods will be subject to English law and the English courts will have jurisdiction in respect of any dispute arising from the contract.
11. The Parts We Supply
All items sold on our website are used we may also call them reclaimed. All our used parts are passed through a rigorous testing procedure to ensure the best quality spare parts are sold.
12. Testing Spare Parts
Our used parts are either sourced from a TV where one board within the TV has failed but all other boards are known to be working, i.e. a PSU has failed or an inverter transformer has failed. Some parts are removed from fully working Plasma or LCD TVs where the screen has either failed or suffered an impact. Due to the boards not being originally packaged as spare parts and have already been fitted, it is illegal to sell these products as new. Although not new, many of the parts we supply have had little use.
13. Advice Given via E-Mail or any other means
Please note that all the advice we give via E-Mail or on our Forum is based on our best guess. While we recognise that we are qualified to give a diagnosis it would be impossible to give a 100% certain diagnosis without physically testing your TV. Our advice is often given based on known faults and patterns of faults for certain set or based on what information you can give us. We would then suggest what part we would suspect to be faulty, however, we can't guarantee that this would solve the problem or indeed be the only problem within your TV set. If we recommend a part and it doesn't fix the fault you are entitled to return the item for a full refund.
14. Part Recognition
We take great pride in our online shop. We are the only website to list their parts by the set they are for. We designed it this way to make it easier to find the part you are looking for, while you can search for the part number you need using our search box, sometimes the part number may be missing and by listing the parts by the set they are from you can quickly do a visual comparison of your part to others available for your TV. However, please remember that parts are often common through many different TV sets and if it is possible, it is important to search for all part numbers using our search to see if the part is listed in another model of TV. The shop can return information specific to your particular TV together with manufacturers part numbers, board numbers and photographs to help you identify the correct part. Should you still have problems, please use our Contact Us form which may be found on the Contact Us page and also there is a link on all pages. It is your responsibility to be sure the part you purchase is correct as we can't refund your postage costs if you order the wrong part.
15. Ordering and Payment
Our web site is fully e-commerce enabled, allowing you to place an order on-line and pay using your credit/debit card through our payment gateway partner PayPal. You do not need a PayPal account to use our web site. PayPal is capable of processing many different types of card. You may also use the PayPal cheque payment system but please be aware that parts will not be despatched until the cheque payment is cleared by PayPal, which can take up to 7 days. Credit/debit card payments are instant. Please Note: We do not store any credit or debit card details on our web site. Your payment transaction is processed by PayPal.
16. Postage and Packing
Postage and packing are charged on the total weight of your order. The website will calculate the charge automatically and it will be shown in your Shopping Basket, this price is final and non negotiable.
Please note that the postage price includes all costs associated with despatching your order, this includes the cost of employing someone to pick, pack, wrap and despatch the order.
Orders placed before 5pm are picked from the warehouse the same day, and we aim to despatch the order the same day, however during busy periods your order may not be sent until the next working day. Please note we make every effort to despatch your order in good time. We only despatch on weekdays.
The advice given to you is advice, unfortunately it is not gospel. Our advice cannot be guaranteed as we are unable to physically examine your television. If you take on DIY repair of your television, we are to assume that you are asserting that you are competent at doing so and are aware of any potential damage you could cause to your set by not installing parts incorrectly.
Our staff are very experienced in their field however all advice is based on common fault patterns through knowledge of years of experience by technical staff, they cannot guarantee this advice will be correct, only physical examination of your television can give rise to fully confident diagnostics and consequent repair.
For this reason, the advice given to any customer by any of our staff by any form of communication is to be used in conjunction with common-sense and your own technical ability.
If you are not experienced or competent in DIY TV repair then we highly suggest that the television in question is taken to a qualified repair technician.
Crystal TV Spare Parts is therefore not liable for any consequent damage or loss for installation of parts with or without our advice.
If you refuse to take your TV to a technician in the first instance and then ask our advice, we assume that you are knowledgeable enough to fix your own television, we cannot instil years of experience in one phone call to a customer I'm afraid nor does any of our advice replace good old fashioned common sense.
IMPORTANT: Diagnosis and repair of televisions is not without its risks.
Before working with electricity and televisions always read and follow any relevant manuals and safety instructions.
When working with electricity always turn off the mains.
Plasma televisions and parts especially carry high residual voltages even when they are unplugged: be sure to handle all parts appropriately and with great care, if you are unsure how to do this you should always consult an appropriate professional.
