On Monday March 07 2011 at 7:00 PM, I called Direct TV to complain about a black square "the size of Direct TV logo" on the bottom right side of the TV.
The technical support guides me for troubleshooting to resolve the problem. She told me that she can't help me and I need to call the TV manufacturer "VIZIO" maybe they can help otherwise I need to call back to issue a damage report. The VIZIO TV customer support told me that there is a picture stuck in that spot and cause to burn the TV "Case #1530338".
I Called back Direct TV to Issue a damage report and she told me that she cant do that because it is not related to their equipment Which it was caused by their equipment. I requested to talk to her supervisor. After few minutes the supervisor talked to me her name is Denise, she was aggressive, doesn't want to listen, and her respond was defensive without evaluating the problem. She was telling me that the equipment will not cause that problem therefore they would not compensate me for the damage caused by their logo. I tried to reason with her by telling her that the only equipment is connected to the TV is the DTV receiver. She still was saying that it is impossible that their equipment will cause the problem.
I requested if a technician would come in and evaluate the situation maybe DTV equipment caused the problem. She did not agree. As a result I found that it is no use talking to someone that doesn't want to listen to the customer complains.
I don't Appreciate DTV treatment and not been responsible for their equipment. At least they should investigate the problem and if it was the reason for the damage to my TV then they should compensate for the damage instead of training their supervisors to defend their product without listening to the problem positively to improve their product.
