Hi everybody,

I had yesterday a small problem refering this subject. I tried to sell
by ebay my old Notebook and it went well. But now the buyer has called
me and told me the display was not OK. He told me the display is too
old, obsolete and should be replaced. I only think he didn't know
about this HPA display and was disappointed.

The laptop is 5 years old. Well, I took the laptop back and give him
the money, because I don't want troubles any sort for the 250 Euros
that I've been paid.

Now my question: I still want to sell this thing, and I don't see any
defect else than the low quality of the HPA displays, so can maybe
anybody tell me whether I could anyway proof the Display before I sell
it, so I can truly say it's not defect?

thank you very much in advance

thanks for your extensive answer, I think to have now enough
information for a new auction.

>>> I think it was my foult, for I wrote that the Display was a HPA
and no further explanation. I didn't either mention nothing about the
poor quality of this device. Now I'm gonna do it.

>>> And as you can read above, the display wasn't, just the laptop
itself was well described.

>>> Shure, the only problem is that the auction runs in germany, and
therebefore german is the lenguage :-(, but maybe is enough to see the
photo.
