... 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

My question regards how you count the 30 days that a visa is valid.

 

Let's say that I arrive in the Philippines on September 2.   Would I be able to exit on October 2nd or must I leave on October 1st? 

 

In other words is my arrival date Day 0 and I get 30 additional days or is it Day 1 and I get only 29 additional days?

 

Thanks guys!

  30 days is 30 days from your arrival date. Day one is the day after you land. Just ask the person that stamps your passport. They don't bite!

  When you think about it, it wouldn't be fair if the day you land counted as the first day. What if you flew in at 11PM? See?

30-DAY visa-FREE STAY

Nationals from countries listed below who are traveling to the Philippines for business and tourism are allowed to enter the Philippines without visas for a stay not exceeding thirty days (30) days, provided they hold valid tickets for their return journey to port of origin or next port of destination and their passports valid for a period of at least six (6) months beyond the contemplated period of stay. However, Immigration Officers at ports of entry may exercise their discretion to admit holders of passports valid for at least sixty (60) days beyond the intended period of stay.

The reckoning of the thirty days (30) begins on the day after arrival in the Philippines. This visa-free stay allows for regular tourism and business meetings.

I agree with this.

 

However, the OP has not given his nationality so we can't confirm he will get 30 days on arrival.

 

Presuming you are entitled to a free 30 day visa waiver, in addition for the OP, you don't have to depart on 2nd October if you don't want to. You can arrange an extension. First extension is for 29 days which takes you up to 59 days, the length of visa you could have obtained in advance. After that. your extensions are in your choice of 1 month, 2 months or 6 months. You can then keep extending continuously until you have been in the Philippines for 3 years.

They should write the expiry date on your arrival stamp... take a moment to see if it is right before leaving the desk. Your luggage will be still waiting for you... there is no harm showing up a couple of days before your visa expires at immigration. I actually suggest you do that in case something unexpected pops up and you miss the deadline.

   How hard would it be to just put a reminder in your phone or maybe write it in your passport? Maybe, just maybe, guys could book their vacation for less then 30 days? I know I do.

You would be surprised at how many ppl totally go blank with these things. I was just at the SM AURA Bi in Taguig last week. Lots of guys sweating and moaning about their chances of renewal.

I'm American.

 

This trip, I only want to stay 30 days.  Well, I guess I'd prefer to stay around 35 but don't want to pay for an extension just to stay a few more days.

 

Thanks to all for your replies guys!

Not trying to argue, but when I was a tourist I would kill for the chance to spend only 80 bucks to stay here 5 more days. My restraints were always work based.

Interesting.  I not far away from the Philippines Embassy in Phnom Penh.

 

Didn't realise that it was cheaper to get the 59 day visa in advance than to extend the 30 day entry stamp.  Maybe I'll do that.

It is USD $30 in the USA. It will not necessarily work out as cheap in other countries. Perhaps you can report back here on what it does cost

"When you think about it, it wouldn't be fair if the day you land counted as the first day. What if you flew in at 11PM? See? "

Just a word of caution for travellers to Thailand. Thai immigration DO count the day you arrive as DAY 1, even if you arrive at 11pm. Your stay is actually for 30 days but only 29 nights. Although there is a 500 baht fine per day for an overstay it is not charged for the first day.
