PCA Disc & The Sale of Goods Act

Likes # 0

I'm just a bit hacked off. Having received a DVD that will not load on any of 3 machines. Having made a request for a replacement via Customer Services you then wait a week to be told to go to a different PCA Website to input your request. I then jumped through a few hoops (Registration, Email Confirmation, Location of Cover Disc Code, Location of Issue Number etc.) to input my request for a replacement Cover DVD. It's not until you get to the end of logging your delivery details you find PCA will probably take 28 days to replace not the 14 days indicated in the Disc Instructions on the last page of the Magazine Cover Disc Review. By then, several of the 'Full Program' offers on the disc will have expired...! Not very helpful and at no time is there a Sorry! The DVD is not a gift - it is part of the purchase package and in this case not merchantable quality. I'm not impressed.

Let me have your name and your postal address, and the issue number of the magazine concerned.

I'll arrange for someone to sort this out for you.

Have you by any chance disabled javascript in your browser? The contact link won't work if you have.

This tells you how you can easily fix the problem

Doesn't work in all browsers, FE.

I use FF and if I want to contact you via the link I have to use Chrome

The contact form uses javascript, and provided that is enabled in your browser the form will work.

If you take a look at the link I posted above you'll see instructions for enabling Javascript in the latest versions of IE, Firefox, Chrome, Safari and Opera.

I get lots of emails via the contact link, and very few complaints about it not working - all usually related to javascript being disabled in browsers.

It didn't work before I posted yesterday, and it doesn't work now.

It works in Chrome, Opera, Safari and even IE, but not in Firefox, and, as I've posted before, for me it never has, since the re-vamp of the site.

If it was a JavaScript problem I would expect problems on other sites too.

You're right about Firefox, it produces an error message 'there are errors on your form,please try again'.

Apologies for the inconvenience - we'll look into it as a matter of urgency.
