Vodafone v3 sure signal no power light

Hi all,

 

my vodafone sure signal power light has failed- no lights showing at all including the power light. I have been on Vodafone’s live talk and was told to leave it plugged in for 20 mins and it would then be fine. I have just read through some of the community issues raised on the v3. I am concerned that leaving it in any longer may not be safe practice. Does anyone have any experience of these things regaining life or is there no chance. 

 

Many thanks

Better to err on the side of caution and unplug it @Doappleb

The Sure Signal has a 24 Month Manufacturing Warranty however if your v3 SS has suffered the failure Vodafone UK are aware of then ask them to swap it out even if it's older than 24 months old. 

You shouldn't be required to renew your contract to get another ss if your on Pay Monthly.

Hi @Doappleb

 

If this was my situation I would unplug it now as it's showing signs of failure.

Thanks again Band of Brothers. My sure signal and contract seem to match all of the information provided. So I hope I have more luck when I next contact the helpline.

Hi Adam,

 

Thank you. I have been in contact with Vodafone via live chat and then via phone with no success. I am told that it’s out of warranty on the phone or that as it’s out of warrenty nothing can be done on live talk. I explained the issue and also explained the advice I have received on here to no effect. Any help that can be given would be greatly appreciated. 

 

 

Many thanks

Hi Natasha,

 

Thanks for the message, I have followed the instructions you have sent. I completed these last Wednesday and have not yet had a response. This is not a problem if it’s normal I don’t know what the turnaround time normally is for these requests. If this is not normal shall I resubmit the information.

 

Many thanks.

Hi Alex,

 

Thanks, I have re submitted. Got a confirmation screen that Vodafone have received it, but no message as of yet with a reference number - in fairness it was literally a minute ago, so may be a slight delay. 

 

Many thanks

Hi Adam,

 

I have submitted twice on my mobile and once on my laptop. All times the confirmation screen has appeared but no reference number has been sent out. I have also checked junk email folder with no luck.

 

Any advice again would be appreciated.

 

Many thanks

Hello,

I am in the sam boat, my sure Signal V3 has suddenlt failed.

No lights on and a slight buzzing noise coming from the unit

I have been on chat to Viodafone and have been told it is out of warranty and my only option is to buy another one

Is that true ?

Or is there a root in to get it replaced without having to shell out another £70

Thank you

Well here’s another failure of this SureSignal V3 device.  After a web chat with  Vodafone I was given a number to call. On doing so I was told the device guarantee had lapsed in January  2018 and that I would need to buy a new one. On pressing the operator further and telling them I was not satisfied with that, given the number of reported failures I was promised a call back within 24 hours following their research into the issues. The operator also suggested we  have calls via WiFi, but that will not help people calling us. We have NO VODAFONE SIGNAL AT HOME WITHOUT THE SURE SIGNAL.  I’m still awaiting that call back. Where do we go next, Trading Standards or the Small Claims Court. This device should work longer than this.

Can you help resolve my problem?
