Canon service center sucks!

Canon service center sucks!

Apparently these people from canon service center doesn’t really know what they are doing. I posted previously that I had a problem with my camera and brought it at canon center and they have “diagnosed” that my camera’s motherboard is already damaged and need to be replaced and in doing that I would need to pay 9258 pesos! Well, I pulled out my camera yesterday from canon because I am not stupid enough to pay that big amount for repair, I’d rather buy a new camera.

But still, I don’t want to give up that camera, so after work I brought the camera at photoline grand central for a second opinion. And this very nice lady accommodated me and started filling up forms for repair quoting that it might be around 1800-2500 pesos (a big difference from what canon is trying to get from me). After filling up the form she asked what is the exact problem, told her it’s the power thing, it doesn’t turn on (didn’t told her that the camera was already appraised as doom at canon), after hearing the problem, she tried putting in a new battery and lo and behold, my camera just came back to life with no problem at all! I was so happy that the camera is not broken and embarrassed at the same time coz it looked like I was stupid for not trying on a new battery! Imagine my relief after all the hassle and stress I had thinking that my camera is broken, that I don’t need to buy a new camera (just new rechargable batteries).

I expected a lot from canon service center. I totally believed them that my camera is fucked up …just to learn that their so called diagnosis is so fucking wrong! I even paid 250 pesos for that “consultation fee”. Who would have thought that they can do it wrong to think that they are the “establishment”? Is this the only incident that they made a huge mistake diagnosing a camera problem? Or has this been going on for a long time already and that its their modus operandi to suck money from their unknowing clients? What if I was gullible and had the money to pay for the 9528 and let them “repair” my camera?

I’ve called canon center already and reported the incident, they were, as expected very polite and apologetic with a promise that they will review the whole incident and get to know what happened. I was promised a refund of the 250 diagnostic fee and I demanded a letter of apology. In fairness, Monique, the girl I’ve spoken with seems competent enough, I just need action and to make sure that this incident will not happen again.

Maybe they should learn a thing or two from that girl at Photoline, to check first before saying that the camera is broken. Makes you wonder how experienced are these employees from canon? I even described the problem and what had happened to the camera but they didn’t even bother checking in or putting a new battery just accepted the camera and told me their standard checking time is 7days! I don’t think I’ll ever trust canon center ever again.

If you still want to visit their office, here's their address

anagrams anyone?

not much to going on right now so i've been blog hopping and found this link, kinda cute and geeky at the same time. tried getting the anagram of my name and got "no anal games" hehehe.

here's something funnier... so its seems that there's a bit truth in every joke!

yahoo's text twist introduced me in this word play (read: i'm a text twist addict), and i've become more fascinated in anagram when Dan Brown used it in his novel "The Da Vinci Code".

thought you'd wanna know that anagram is a type of word play, the result of rearranging the letters of a word or phrase to produce other words using all the original letters exactly once. for more background on anagram check out wiki.

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows

the countdown begins...
R.I.P. Sidney Sheldon
Sidney Sheldon, who won awards in three careers -- Broadway theater, movies and television -- then at age 50 turned to writing best-selling novels, has died. Sheldon was 89. Sheldon died Tuesday afternoon of complications from pneumonia at Eisenhower Medical Center in Rancho Mirage, said Warren Cowan, his publicist. His wife, Alexandra, and his daughter, author Mary Sheldon, were by his side. Complete story here.

So sad to hear that one of my favorite authors passed away. wahhhhh! i love his novels, and i've read every single one of them, and i dont think i'll ever get tired of re-reading "If Tomorrow Comes". I was even anticipating when is he going to publish his next novel after "Are You Afraid of the Dark?"

Rest in peace, Sidney Sheldon.

election time

Isn’t it enough that all of our local shows are full of crap? Now you also have to endure those long commercial breaks with the pre-election campaign of these sucking politicians, yes indeed its election time once again.

It’s the time for promises and papogi points, of how they are going to make this country better and how can they alleviate poverty, etc., etc.. And if you’re going to believe the crap they are saying you’d think that you’re listening to a saint.

Let’s cut the bullshit, we all know that there is no single politician in the Philippines who is honest and not corrupt. Sad but true, you only get to choose who the lesser evil is. And I know its already hackneyed but please choose your bets carefully and vote wisely.
