Samsung’s TV isn’t compatible with the MLB app.Samsung’s TV isn’t compatible with the MLB app.Can I get a refund?

Before Tom Moran buys his 58-inch Samsung Smart TV, he asks a representative if the unit is compatible with the MLB app. Samsung says it is — but it isn’t. Does he deserve a refund?

 

Q: I went on Samsung’s website in November 2020 and requested a recommendation from their salesperson for a television that is compatible with the MLB app. I have a copy of the chat. I purchased a 58-inch Class TU7000 Crystal UHD 4K Smart TV based on the company’s written recommendation.

I could not test the television until April 2021, when the baseball season started. And when I did, the app didn’t work.

I have copies of all emails between Samsung and me. First, Samsung said the TV was past the return deadline. Then they promised they would give me an in-warranty repair. But the problem with that is you can’t make a television compatible with a simple repair.

Then, in another email, they claimed there is no fault with the television and there’s nothing they can do.

I believe Samsung should take responsibility for its mistake. They sold me the wrong television. I’d like to return the TV and get a refund of $385. I hope you can help me with this. — Tom Moran, Naples, Florida

A: Samsung should have given you the correct advice. The TV you ordered is not compatible with the MLB app. But you wouldn’t discover this until the baseball season started, months after your purchase, and that complicated matters.

I’m not sure what the representatives meant when they said your TV was past the return window. For your TV, you had a one-year warranty that didn’t apply to this situation. The monitor worked fine, but not as promised. 

I’m in awe of the paper trail you kept. Not only did you save the online chat between you and Samsung — the one where they said the monitor would work with the MLB app — but you also have an email in which Samsung promises to accept the return of the TV. That’s all you needed to resolve this case.

Or was it? Well, when I reviewed Samsung’s paper trail, it appeared to backtrack, telling you it had no record of a promise made about compatibility, claiming the TV was out of warranty when it technically never was “in” warranty, and then pivoting and agreeing to an in-warranty repair, which was doomed to fail. Wow, what a mess.

You could have appealed this home run of a case to Samsung’s executives. I list the names, numbers and email addresses of Samsung’s customer service managers on my consumer advocacy site, Elliott.org

I contacted Samsung on your behalf. It refunded the purchase price of your TV, as promised.

When I found Dr.Prince I was in desperate need of bringing my ex lover back. He left me for another woman. It happened so fast and I had no say in the situation at all. He just dumped me after 3 years with no explanation. I contact https://obinnas...

When I found Dr.Prince I was in desperate need of bringing my ex lover back. He left me for another woman. It happened so fast and I had no say in the situation at all. He just dumped me after 3 years with no explanation. I contact https://obinnaspelltemple.com through his website and He told me what i need to do before he can help me and i did what he told me, after i provided what he wanted, he cast a love spell to help us get back together. Shortly after he did his spell, my boyfriend started texting me again and felt horrible for what he just put me through. He said that I was the most important person in his life and he knows that now. We moved in together and he was more open to me than before and he started spending more time with me than before. Ever since Dr.Prince helped me, my partner is very stable, faithful and closer to me than before. I highly recommends Dr.Prince to anyone in need of help.
