... and the electric still needs paying.

She'll text back after discovering her b/f drunk and incapable AGAIN.

@  Mentalist : (20 August 2018 - 11:43 AM)

Girl I've got on facebook just said "how much you pay?" I responded "2000 babe" and then the phone went silent

@  grahamuk : (20 August 2018 - 08:01 AM)

Yep, I'd trust an LG too.

@  richie155 : (20 August 2018 - 07:20 AM)

yup, my friend fixed his for less than 10 euros... i'm sticking with LG from now on... 1st gen 37"LG flat screen lasted for 15 years and still works, replaced it to get FullHD/4k

@  grahamuk : (20 August 2018 - 06:16 AM)

The fix cost peanuts, was well-publicised and could easily be done yourself if you can use a soldering iron. After 11 years I'd defo buy another. Ferraris break too sometimes.

@  richie155 : (20 August 2018 - 05:10 AM)

I had a Simsung with capacitor problems too, never Simsung again for me. On purpose they use too weak capacitors. Too bad the TV's started to break during the warranty period many times. I'm affraid it's not just them who on purpose design such flaws to their products.

@  grahamuk : (20 August 2018 - 04:45 AM)

It was capacitors on mine. A well-known failure apparently. Makes TV take forever to start. The parts are cheap.

@  grahamuk : (20 August 2018 - 04:43 AM)

Samsungs are damned good TVs. Well worth getting fixed properly, as I did with mine after 8 years reliable use. Still going strong now, after another 3. The fix cost £90 in UK.... and that was a home visit.

@  Biggles : (20 August 2018 - 04:05 AM)

Well its a Samsung Smart TV so not cheap, worth repairing if I can get a reliable fix. It turns itself off when hot, ok when it cools down, for about 20 mins then off again.

@  lazybugger : (20 August 2018 - 03:22 AM)

First thing I had to do was open it and repair it!!! Haha

@  lazybugger : (20 August 2018 - 03:22 AM)

just bought a LED TV fron Lazada, delivered today, for P1,988

@  Sandman!... : (20 August 2018 - 01:04 AM)

statusquo we did one for Duke for his Classic pictures....we shall talk when i get home...

@  Sandman!... : (20 August 2018 - 01:02 AM)

Kadachiman there is a repair shop next to Queens Hotel for air cons you can check there...

@  Sandman!... : (20 August 2018 - 01:01 AM)

Actually i use the computer at my hotel if i had a laptop i would be on it too much that is why oi don't post pictures till i get home

@  stew : (19 August 2018 - 01:57 PM)

some will replace original parts with cheap copy

@  bill44ca : (19 August 2018 - 01:53 PM)

I too would not waste time repairing a TV or Computer unless it was a very expensive one here. But I don't know MacGuyver

@  Biggles : (19 August 2018 - 11:18 AM)

Yes, I had the same thought but a recommendation helps. Dont think it is a major problem.

@  Kadachiman : (19 August 2018 - 09:46 AM)

I have had 3 different companies take 5 attempts to fix my aircond (leaking gas)...still no luck. This and other items that I needed 'repaired' has led me to the conclusion that the skills are not available to fix anything, so better to throw it away and buy new

@  scuba539 : (19 August 2018 - 08:35 AM)

Saw an ad in the Blue Book for ACT TV Repair shop...09178315689...Never used them but claim to have been in Biz since 1981

Hi

 

I'm trying to book a room for my stay in February at Wild Orchid Subic.

 

But they don't accept credit cards for deposits. They say it has to be done with a bank transfer. 

 

Has anyone experience with that? Is that reliable?

 

They also have very slow email communication, i'm getting only 1 answer per day, but this must be the time difference, alltough i didn't had that problem with other hotels in the past.

 

 

greetings

Leroy

Yep

That was one of my ideas too, but Agoda says there are no free rooms for my stay :)

I've booked a few times direct with Wild Orchid intending to pay cash for the 15pct discount and always get the email asking for a bank transfer.

The first time, I queried this and got a nonsensical response so I thought 'bugger it' and booked through Agoda. When I arrived, I had a dupe reservation add they didn't cancel my first enquiry and were too daft to notice that they had 2 reservations under the same unusual name.

Ever since, I've just sent off the query from their website get the confirmation and advice about the money transfer, and then left it that. Fire off an email a couple of days before arrival to remind them that I'm coming and all has been OK.

I just looked for next 2 weeks and see availability; when you trying to stay?

 

I use agoda with them few times (make sure you print out the file agoda  emails you and the hotel a stickler about seeing it.) I would never try handle it thru emails as customer service there is pitiful to say the least. Not downing resort, I will def stay again; just you get typical PI customer service...

I just copy and pasted the above comments to the manager of the Wild Orchid Subic,  Hope they can sort the situation out.  

 

I have nothing to do with the Wild Orchid other than a periodic customer and know the owners>

I was making reservations for a Boracay vacation and the hotel we wanted said they only took bank transfers - no credit (and no Agoda).  So I told em forget it.  Too much trouble for me.  I don't care if they get my business.  Too many other places to go.

 I have stayed at this hotel two times, each time being able to make reservations without making a bank transfer.

 

I just booked my third trip there - for the first time I was not asked to make a bank transfer to reserve a room.   This time that was not the case.    So maybe they are listening!   I am certainly not going to pay $35 to my bank to make a wire transfer to make a hotel reservation.   The first two times I was able to get the room even without the bank transfer....not sure if it was because of availability.   

 

You might want to try again and push back if you are asked for a bank transfer.   I would pay for a deposit, but not if it costs me $35 and a lot of hassle to go the bank to complete .
