Defective LCD? Repair under warranty? Experiences?
Just a simple question: I've buyed a refurbished Nexus 7 (2013) from an eBay seller in UK.
Device is defective: display always shows some vertical black lines. These are dead pixels? Could be correlated to bad handling during shipping? Exterior is without any scratch or sign. Device is in perfect state.
I think it's an hardware fault and that requires replacement of LCD panel.
I could send back device to eBay seller but I must pay shipping cost and it's an international shipping, so it's quite expensive.
I'm opting to use ASUS RMA under warranty. Nexus will be free shipped to ASUS Europe repair lab which is in Czech Republic (Brno).
This kind of defect is under warranty or there's a risk that ASUS could ask me to pay in order to repair my Nexus?
The only proof of purchase that I've are emails of eBay order and PayPal payment. Could be sufficient? Without proof of purchace I can obtain repair under warranty based on build date?
