RCA / Shipping labels keep getting lost in the mail - yeah right!
My father, an elderly man, has purchased 2 RCA Televisions within the last year. Both products have failed. The first within weeks. It was returned to the store and a different model purchased. The second model failed after about 5 months. I am acting on my fathers behalf and I have been trying to get the faulty product replaced every since.

I called the RCA service line [protected] in May 2009, inquired about the procedure to have the TV exchanged. I had the required receipt faxed repeatedly to your RCA repair centre. I repeatedly had to call to see if the fax was received. The service department claimed it was not legible. I had it faxed to my office and it was clear and legible. I sent an electronic copy by email to the RCA repair centre.
Each time I call the RCA service centre I am put on hold while someone reviews my file. Calls average around 40 minutes in length. With the electronic version of the receipt received and accepted I was issued a return number and was told a prepaid shipping label would be sent out immediately and that I should expect it within 5 – 10 business days. No label has ever arrived.
I have spoken with a supervisor and a manager. It is always a waiting game. I call and they tell me the prepaid shipping labels will be sent and then I have to wait another 10 business days.
I requested my money back and was told that was not an option. The TV has been defective for months and I have wasted hours on the phone with them. No compensation was offered. No apology was offered, no explanation or assurance that my problem would be resolved. I must wait again for a shipping label to arrive. I am concerned the replacement product will also fail.
I called the RCA service centre, I believe it is run by DEX. I requested information to contact the head office and was told that no information on RCA could be given out for security purposes. What kind of joke is that?
I called again today and tried to get the agent to walk me through the process of sending the labels. He hung up on me. I called back and persisted on talking to a manager. The manager looked at my case file and finally admitted that no prepaid shipping labels have been sent.
