My question involves a consumer law issue in the State of: California
I recently bought a 47inc LG LCD tv from Linder's Furniture. Upon getting the set home and having cable installed I discovered it was defective. I went to return the tv in its original packaging with the receipt to Linder's Corporate warehouse within seven days. My return was refused, I was told I needed a manager to approve the return. All managers were out until Wednesday. I returned with the tv on Wednesday, this time I came with all the California Civil Codes and the UCC codes that pertained to my returned. I asked to speak to a manager who immeditately refused my return. I asked to speak to her manager and was met face to face with the Director of Operations. I explained that I purchased the tv and it was defective and I wanted a refund and that under California Law he had to accept my refund. I showed him the Civil Codes and asked for my refund. He was rude and asked if I was some kind of lawyer I told him no just an informed consumer. He flat out refused my return. When I asked under what grounds he ignored my question and walked away leaving me standing there with my defective tv. Is my only option going to small claims? I'm not crazy right? They have to refund my money and they can't make me have the Manufactor fix the tv correct? Please Help.
